Endodontics is the elimination of the nerve inside the root of the tooth. Through a specialized treatment, tooth extraction in many cases can be avoided.
Root canals are cleaned and disinfected by using high-tech instruments and then sealed with filler material. This way the root of the tooth is preserved and serves as a natural basis for quality teeth.
The nerve is fundamental in the stage of growth of the teeth; then it serves essentially to detect thermal sensations – cold or hot – in the teeth, it is not essential to have the live nerve in the formed tooth for proper functioning, but during the endodontics, adjacent blood vessels are also eliminated, and therefore the tooth become more fragile.
However, a tooth treated by endodontics can last a lifetime with proper hygiene and periodic visits to the dentist.
In contrast to the ¨Classic” root canal treatment,
modern endodontics achieve
a very high success rate.
