Generally everybody is afraid of the root canal therapy, although the intervention can be made painless by an injection. First we need to drill the tooth to access the root canal. The number and variability of the root canals diverse by tooth. After the first step we have to remove the nerves and blood vessels from the tooth with a mechanical root canal dilator.
Meanwhile, the actual position in the root canal is tracked with another special tool, the so-called „apex-locator” – which is like a miniature radar device.
Finally the restoration of the tooth happens by applying a regular, esthetic dental filling.
It isn’t always possible to carry out a root canal therapy in one single session. Sometimes it’s necessary to treat the teeth multiple times.
