obturatie canal

Following a correctly performed root canal treatment, the life of the tooth on the dental arch is prolonged. This avoids future tooth extraction and dental implants. A quality treatment is also much cheaper than a dental implant.

The latest endodontic treatment technologies involve the use of the dental microscope, rotary technique root canal preparation equipment, laser and ultrasonic root canal irrigation and cleaning, and 3D obturation by vertical hot compaction.

The danger of tooth loss does not disappear with the removal of the nerve, so endodontic treatment must continue with disinfection of the space and filling it with a perfectly sealed material that does not allow bacteria to penetrate. The most commonly used current method of filling root canals is vertical hot condensation.

By hot vertical compaction, enough pressure is applied to force the heat softened gutta percha into the entire endodontic root canal system, even the lateral and accessory canals. Hot compaction is the safest method of achieving durability and guaranteeing 3D root fillings.
