Root Canal treatment.

¿What is a root canal treatment?

It is a procedure where the infection that has reached the central portion of the tooth (pulp) is treated. It consists in removing the pulp (a portion of the tooth that provides irrigation and enervation) of the irreversibly infected or dead tooth and filling the canal with a biocompatible material to be able to restore the tooth.

For root canal treatment to be successful it is important to detect and treat all root canals. Sometimes this can be difficult to achieve, as some of these canals are as thin as a hair.

In the field of endodontics, the possibility of performing root canal treatments with a microscope has been a complete revolution, as this extreme magnification minimizes the patient’s pain and discomfort, plus it assures a safe and efficient treatment with excellent long-term results achieved.
