Endodontics or dental root canal treatment is applied if due to the tooth defect the soft tissues – nerves and blood vessels located in the tooth canal – of the tooth have been damaged. The defect results in pulp inflammation that may cause pain and temperature change, acute pain, pain during sleep. Unless the damage gets treated the chronic phase of inflammation starts – from the dental canals to the jawbone. The endodontic procedure is performed in order to clean the tooth canals of bacteria thereby renovate the tooth and prevent its extraction.
Endodontics is a continuous and difficult procedure still often it is the only possibility to preserve the tooth. The number of the sessions depends on the amount of canals and anatomy of the tooth, difficulty of the procedure and spread of the inflammation. If the infection has not spread to the jawbone, the treatment may take on visit only, but a larger number of canals, focal of infection in the jawbone, necessity of retreatment normally require two and more visits.
During the following session the temporary filling is to be removed, the canal receives repeated processing and rinse, it is filled with gutta-percha and endodontic treatment of the tooth is completed. The crown part of the tooth is to be sealed with the filling material and prosthetics is performed if needed.
Not satisfied with the aesthetics of your incisive teeth? One of the ways how to improve the incisive aesthetics is the cosmetic filling of the teeth. The incisive teeth aesthetics may be renovated by using teeth fillings in cases when a tooth has lost part of its edge, its colour has changed, it has cracked or get coloured along the filling rims, or erosion has occurred at the tooth neck. The tooth filling facets are shaped by covering the visible part of a tooth with filling material thereby structuring an aesthetical tooth of natural colour and shape. When tooth facets are made, the shape of a tooth may be easily changed as well as any corrections if needed are easily possible.
