What is Endodontics?

It is a procedure used by dentists to remove the damaged pulp of the tooth and eliminate the nerve. Once the tooth is healed and disinfected, the pulp cavity is filled and sealed with different materials to preserve the tooth.

How does Endodontics work?

Teeth have ducts in the roots through which the nerve passes, when this is inflamed, it must be removed and the duct must be cleaned (remove bacteria and damaged tissue), and then sealed with special materials. Once this is done, the tooth destroyed by decay or fracture is reconstructed, thus sealing it completely and preserving the natural tooth.

When is a root canal needed?

Endodontics is needed when external or internal irritants have occurred, which have affected the nerve of the tooth, causing inflammation, pain and damage to the tooth.

The external factors are:

  • Thermal
  • Chemicals
  • Traumatic

The internal factors are:

  • Caries
  • Bad bite

We have an endodontic microscope

With this microscope we can perform more complex and accurate endodontics, since it magnifies the image to the specialist, making his work more precise. 



Frequently Asked Questions

No, because it is done under local or general anesthesia. The important thing is the recovery, because if you do not recover well, intense pain can occur before filling the tooth cavity.

It depends on the patient's recovery and how he/she takes care of his/her dental health. After the operation there may be pain during the inflammatory process, but with analgesics prescribed by the specialist, it can be prevented.
