Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with diseases of the root canal content i.e. dental pulp. Root canal treatment is necessary in order to remove the cause of the disease, preserve the tooth, and maintain its function. Dental pulp may become affected for various reasons. One of them is certainly dental cavities. When bacteria and their toxins penetrate into the pulp chamber this leads to an infection known as pulpitis. Further effect of bacteria and toxins leads to the interruption of blood supply to the teeth, root canal content decay, which than causes gangrene. Bacteria can also penetrate into the jawbone through the top of the root, and apex resulting in a process at the top of the root.
In addition to cavities, mechanical injuries can also cause this exact problem. Our office is equipped with high-end digital devices for mechanical processing of the root canal and apex locator for precise identification of the top of the root, for achieving maximum therapeutic effect.
