ENDODONTICS – DENTAL TREATMENT
At the Ortoimplant Dental SPA dental clinic in Zagreb, we believe that toothache is not solved by tooth extraction – instead, we use endodontic treatment to preserve the functionality of the tooth and prevent future toothache. The root canal is disinfected with bio-ozone that supplies the tissue with oxygen, allowing for faster and easier healing. Our experts also use a modern 3D endodontic device called Down Pack, which allows us to fill in root canals that could not be treated with the classical method.
Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that involves the treatment of dental canals, removal of the pulp (nerve) and root extraction. The dental pulp is a soft tissue composed of nerves and blood vessels. When caries penetrate into the dental tissue, the pulp gets infected with bacteria.
The treatment of tooth inflammation involves removing the dental nerve and thoroughly cleaning the entire root canal. Disinfection is followed by filling the canal with permanent fillings to prevent future penetration of bacteria into the root and further spread of inflammation to the bone, which can cause the loss of the tooth.
Endodontic treatment procedure:
The endodontist creates an opening in the tooth’s crown to reach the pulp:
the dental nerve is removed,
the entire root canal is thoroughly cleaned,
the canal is filled with permanent fillings to prevent penetration of bacteria into the root,
the tooth opening is sealed with a permanent filling.
