The result of root canal treatment – necessary for deep caries, nerve inflammation, or after an accident – is crucial for the overall prognosis of the tooth. Anatomical studies show how complex the tunnel system inside the tooth can be. Residual tissue or bacteria in the tooth cavity can lead to painful infections and extensive cyst development in the jaw bones, ultimately resulting in the loss of the tooth and the surrounding bone.
A study by Naseem (Brit. Dent. J.) was able to show that, in 8 out of 10 teeth, inflammation of the jaw at the root apex was successfully treated using root canal treatment. This allowed for the preservation of teeth without the need for surgical intervention (root apex resection – apicoectomy).
Modern endodontics, known as root canal treatment, focuses a great deal of effort on ensuring the long-term stability of the affected tooth. Our specialists, Dr. Niklas Umland and Patrick Hoyt M.Sc, have a wide range of modern technology to ensure the preservation of your own teeth: binocular dental microscopes, special torque controlled motors, electronic measuring probes, instruments made of nickel-titanium alloy, digital x-ray sensors, thermoplastic filling instruments, and low-dose CBCT with high-resolution individual tooth focus. Successful endodontics depends not only on high levels of expertise, knowledge, patience, and high-tech equipment, but also requires a lot of time. This is time that we are pleased to take to ensure the preservation of your teeth.
