Microscopic root canal treatment

To ensure precision and predictability, every endodontic treatment involves the use of a Seliga dental microscope. All dentists who provide root canal treatment at our Clinic use the microscope in their everyday work.

It is a standard procedure in root canal treatment and all other diagnostic procedures.

While taking routine digital panoramic photographs our dentists often encounter cases when previous root canal treatment requires to be performed again. Proper endodontic treatment is based on complete removal of bacteria from the canal system found inside a tooth, and sealing it tightly with the use of a thermal system and a sealant, what in turn cuts off flow of bacteria into the bloodstream and prevents occurrence of periosteal inflammation and systemic infections.

Using a microscope during the root canal treatment allows for identifying all canals within a tooth, even the ones that are usually omitted during a standard root canal treatment due to their microscopic size. If endodontic treatment fails to be performed correctly, bacteria remaining in these canals have continual contact with body systems and often cause inflammatory lesions such as cysts and granulomatous changes. In the presented case, inflammatory lesions in the bone were revealed after thorough diagnostics with the use of a tomography apparatus available at our Clinic. Thanks to precise diagnosis and a repeated root canal treatment performed by our endodontist who used a microscope, the tooth was saved.

After – 3 months after the repeated root canal treatment, healing of periapical lesions is visible.

Using a microscope in everyday practice enables our dentists to save teeth that have been earlier qualified for extraction. Routinely, our endodontists are able to find all canals within a tooth, properly fill them, and also remove instruments that broke during the previous treatment.
