Why is root canal treatment needed?

Root canal treatment is designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal, prevent reinfection of the tooth and save the natural tooth.
There are a few symptoms that mean you might need a root canal
  • Severe pain while chewing or biting
  • Pimples on the gums
  • A chipped or cracked tooth
  • Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold, even after the sensation has been removed
  • Swollen or tender gums
  • Deep decay or darkening of the gums

If you experience it, make an appointment with our dentists in order to get the proper treatment as soon as possible.

The most common symptom is toothache, but in certain cases, although there is no pain, root canal treatment is still needed.

If pulpitis is spreading slowly and without any pain throughout the years, it can lead to dead tooth. In this case it does not react to cold, and there is no sensitivity to pain. Inflammation can spread to the surrounding tissues, and can cause inflammation process in the bone.

The symptom can be sensitivity to pressure/chewing, swollen gum around the root peak without any pain, out of which exudates come out, sometimes the process is without any symptoms and the problems can be realized solely with the help of an x-ray. In such a case, the root of the tooth, which really does not ache, has to be treated to stop the inflammation in the bone.


How is root canal treatment done?

Inside your tooth, beneath the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, is a soft tissue called pulp. When one undergoes a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed in one or two sessions.

In case of heavy inflammation, we seal the canals with medicine and the next treatment can be done in one or two weeks’ time.

The shape, length and accessory canals of root canals can be very different. So in our clinic the accurate root canal treatment is helped not only by CT scans but by electric instruments, which measure the length of the root. There are all kinds of different instruments for treatments. In more complicated cases we use microscope and laser instruments.

Proficiency of our dentists and the most modern equipment can improve the success of treatments in order that You can keep the affected tooth for a long period of time. You should also realize that full recovery of an inflamed tooth can last for several months, so we cannot guarantee the complete success in advance.

What is the goal of root canal treatment?

The first aim of the treatment is to achieve pain relief and in the long term, to save the seriously ill tooth and to reconstruct its original and natural function.

In the case of advanced inflammation, the aim is to stop bone inflammation, which surrounds the tooth roots and also to prevent its recrudesce. In lack of treatment, inflammation is spreading, so it can create dangerous conditions.

What is the next step following root canal filling?

After a root canal treatment, teeth are usually weaker, more fragile. Once your root canal and any follow-up appointments are completed, you’ll need a final crown to fully restore the tooth. A properly treated and restored tooth can last as long as your natural teeth.

If the tooth is not protected (e.g. there is a huge filling), it can break. It can be a really sad experience, if a formerly cured and kept tooth breaks under the gum, and has to be pulled out. Furthermore, replacing the missing tooth with a bridge or with implant, requires further financial efforts and time.

Surgical microscopes for extremely difficult cases

For our patients there is a new opportunity of surgical microscopes that can help to keep damaged, so called hopeless teeth. Not only our surgical microscopes make it possible, but also our colleague Dr. Tibor Bartha’s experience, who has dealt with endodontia for more than twenty years, and which requires accuracy and special processes.

Microscopic enlargement to twenty times and focused lights make sights and continuous control more effective during the treatment, with the help of which complicated anatomic details can also be noticed and watched, like side, lateral canals, accessory canals, etc.

Before each root canal treatment, which is done with surgical microscopes, we take 3D CT scans about the affected tooth to get to know the complete canal system. With the help of the three-dimensioned examination, we acknowledge spatial orientation of teeth and we can set up the most possible accurate diagnosis.

Advantage of microscopic root canal treatment

  • It helps us with your diagnosis and creating an effective treatment plan
  • Enables us to discover all the small details of the root canal
  • It can increase the success rate of the process and the results last longer
  • The risk of tooth fracture or tooth fissure is reduced to a minimum
  • Root canal can be cleaned and filled in a very precise way
