Root Canal Treatments
Endodontics is the area of dental surgery dealing with the dental pulp and disorders affecting tooth nerves.
Although many patients are apprehensive about undergoing root canal treatments, advanced processes now allow for painless intervention. At the end of each treatment, patients are given their own instruments to ensure total asepsis and quality control.
Root canals, sometimes called endodontic treatments, involve removing the infected, damaged or dead dental pulp, which allows you to keep your tooth intact.
The use of the operating microscope in endodontics, a surgical technique now offered at the Parisloft Dental Centre, represents a major technological development for the profession.
Major technological development
One of the major challenges faced by endodontists is the near-impossibility of seeing inside canals.
A surgical microscope can magnify by powers of 3 to 20 to provide a clear, three-dimensional view of the interior of a canal, thereby enabling more precise work.
Among the benefits it offers, this technique allows dentists to:
1) locate fine tooth canals that may not be visible to the naked eye, for rapid, precise and pain-free root canal treatment.
2) retreat a failed root canal on a tooth that is still sensitive and painful.
