DESCRIPTION OF PROCEDURE
This procedure includes full treatment of the tooth, i.e. extraction of the infected nerve, filling root canals and restoration for placement of the crown, if necessary.
STAGES OF TREATMENT:
Firstly, endotontist reveals the source of pain by the x-rays. Then, the affected tooth is being anaesthetised and affected enamel removed. Using Leica microscope, the doctor cleans root canals of the tooth and rinses out remains of the pulp (nerve) and infection. All the branches of the canal are filled with liquid rubber, not leaving a single chance for bacteria. After filling the canals, on the same day or during the next visit, the tooth is being strenghtened with a glass fiber pin, and a permanent photopolymer filling is placed.
Fully treated and pinned tooth should be completely covered with a ceramic inlay/ crown to prevent in from being ruined by chewing pressure. Every 6 months to 1 year, an x-ray examination should be repeated for timely monitoring of the healing process.
