If tooth decay is not timely and properly treated and the infection gradually penetrates into the pulp cavity (nerve), root canal treatment is required. Root canal treatment is also required in the case of finding an inflammatory plaque at the root of the tooth, the presence of severe tooth pain, or when preparing the tooth for prosthetic treatment. Treatment consists of locating all the root canals of the tooth and determining their length using a special device called an apexlocator.

High-quality treated root canals

Nickel-titanium rotary tools with torsion control are used in root canal treatment, which reduces the risk of root tool kinking. The treated root canal is then disinfected and hermetically sealed with a root filling. After such treatment the tooth can be given a filling or crown and does not have to be extracted. A tooth with well-treated root canals is a full-fledged part of a person’s dentition and can serve just as long as a vital tooth.
