A root canal treatment performed with loupes, with perfect isolation and with the latest rotary instrumentation technique, ensures a significant life extension of the tooth.
With a lot of attention and precision, our doctors can perform obturations of the root canal that can significantly increase the lifetime of the tooth after the removal of the pulp. The procedure consists in several stages – the cleaning of the radicular canals, the mechanical preparation and confirmation of the root canal, sterilization, and, finally, the obturation that must extend along the entire size of the radicular canal and must have a homogeneous consistency.
“The removal of the tooth pulp” is one of the procedures that require dexterity and experience. Plus, a safe intervention also demands special equipment with which a precise location of the apex and the adequate root canal preparation are realized. Dental Progress Clinic is one of the few dental clinics where doctors’ competence and the new electronic techniques guarantee good lasting results. The perfect isolation with diga, the latest rotary treatment and the tridimensional root canal obturation make out of the root canal treatment a success, even for curved canals which are very difficult to treat. The root canal treatment is a very important stage considering that a wrong root canal treatment could cause infections and even the loss of an improperly treated tooth.

What is endodontics?
The word “endodontics” comes from Greek and it is formed by the joining of “endo” (inside) and “dontia” (tooth), so the endodontics concerns the treatment of the inside of the tooth, more precisely, the affections of the dental pulp.
Endodontics is the dental specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the pulpal pathology.
When is an endodontic treatment required?
We need an endodontic treatment when the dental pulp becomes inflamed. The causes for the inflammation of the dental pulp are: dental trauma, inaccurate teeth fillings or severe teeth decays. If the treatment is being postponed, the dental pulp becomes necrotic. As a result of necrosis, the present bacteria will move towards the apical region of the tooth causing apical reactions, leading in time to bone destruction of the respective tooth zone (dental granuloma or dental cyst).
Is the endodontic treatment painful?
All procedures will be performed under local anesthesia. This way the patient will be offered a full comfort during the endodontic treatment. For more severe apical infections, there might be the possibility for the anesthesia to take effect slower. The basic principle followed by the Dental Progress team is: ANY INTERVENTION ON TEETH OR ADJOINING TISSUE IS BEING PERFORMED WITHOUT ANY PAIN.
Are there any other procedures needed at the end of the endodontic treatment ?
At the end of the endodontic treatment the tooth must be restored with the aid of a radicular reconstruction (pivot) and of a coronary reconstruction (crown).
The periodic monitoring is being made at a 6 month distance and it consists in the examination of the specialist doctor and a retroalveolar x-ray.
