Poorly healed dental root canals are a source of pertaining infection.The root canal must be mechanically cleaned, formed and carefully, hermetically filled. Poorly healed dental root canals are a source of pertaining infection.
From the dental root canals it spreads into tissues around the tip of the root, causing bone destruction in the jawbone itself.
3 success-guaranteeing steps in endodontic therapy:
1. Mechanical root canal preparation during which up to 50 percent of microorganisms are eliminated.
2. Chemical root canal preparation during which 30-40 percent of microorganisms are eliminated.
3. Quality restoration – homogeneous root canal system filling in three-dimensional space up to the dentinocemental junction.
During this process up to 10 percent of microoorganisms are ‘built in‘ into the filling substance.
During endodontic treatment mechanical instrumentation, ultrasound as well as disinfection with special solutions is used.
For the purpose of better results Clinic center Denticija also uses a microscope and laser.
‘A laser has several unique advantages. First of all, the fact that the appliance of a laser does not cause any pain to the patient. Secondly – the procedure is done remarkably fast. The dental root canal is fixed in barely 30-60 seconds. I think this choice is very appealing to people because the pace of life is so much faster nowadays, people are hurrying everywhere and definitely do not want to spend long and painful hours in an odontologist‘s office‘, – said doctor-odontologist Jūratė Lybaitė, providing endodontic services.
With antibacterial qualities of this technology we are able to avoid complications like inflammation, swelling, pain.
