The latest endodontic treatment technologies involve using a dental microscope, rotary equipment for the preparation of the root canals, cleaning and irrigating clogged canals with ultrasound and laser and 3D vertical hot compacted fillings.
Microscope-assisted endodontic treatments represent the most complex procedure currently available in endodontics. The microscope comes to help the endodontist giving direct visibility and enhanced clarity for the successful treatment of the root canals.
Root canal treatment is performed if the tooth nerve is irreversibly destroyed by caries or trauma. In this case the pulp may become inflamed and increases in volume exerting pressure on the pulp cavity thus generating the feeling of pain.
