Root canal treatment is necessary when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected through decay or injury, or if the pulp becomes damaged.

During root canal therapy, roots are prepared both manually and mechanically with the use of flexible, nickel-titanium files and reamers.  In the final phase of treatment, root canals are filled in with gutta-percha, using BeeFillVDW technology, which provides three dimensional filling for the root canals.  Use of these technologies, combined with the specialist skillset of our principal clinician, Kamil Moczynski, enhances our ability to save teeth that would previously have to be extracted. 

After that, a dentist will recommend a proper restoration of a damaged dental crown. Root canal treatment (RCT) allows for the badly damaged teeth to be restored, thus preventing or delaying tooth loss. Without root canal treatment, the infected tooth would have to be removed. Root canal treatment is an attempt to save a badly damaged and/or infected tooth. However, the patient has to be aware of the risks associated with the treatment, i.e. risk of the infection spreading beyond the tooth, which can result in having to have the root canal treated tooth removed permanently.

A list of all the risks and complications associated with root canal therapy is available at the clinic’s reception.

In all our practices we use state-of-the-art endodontic equipment and technology.  In April 2019, our practice was equipped with SmartOPTIC, a cutting edge endodontic microscope.  This device allows the clinician to perform precise micro endodontic treatments; for instance finding hidden and accessory root canals, locating and removing separated instruments and preserving more tooth structure. Overall, this results in better outcomes compared to treatment without vision enhancement or magnification.
