ENDODONTICS IN CUZCO (MADRID)
Would you like to keep your natural teeth for as long as possible? Our team has the skills and expertise needed to help keep your natural smile and preserve its functionality.
In the event of deep decay, trauma or endo-periodontal lesions, we recommend endodontics.
WHAT IS THE GOAL OF ENDODONTIC TREATMENT?
The goal of endodontic treatment is to preserve the tooth, the bone and the gum so as to avoid tooth extraction. It is one of the most common procedures at our clinic.
WHEN IS ENDODONTIC TREATMENT NEEDED?
Deep decay is the main reason why patients are recommended endodontic treatment. Deep decay causes the pulp to become infected, which may lead to pulp necrosis. Other possible causes for pulp damage are fractures, dental erosion and tooth grinding.
Signs to look for include sensitivity to heat or cold and when chewing, prolonged or intermittent pain, tooth discoloration or abscesses.
ENDODONTICS IN CUZCO (MADRID): WHAT ARE THE STEPS OF THE PROCESS?
Endodontic treatment involves the removal of the pulp, the soft tissue core of the tooth which contains nerves and blood vessels.
The first step is the examination of the oral cavity to assess the damage. Then, the endodontist will take an X-ray to have a clearer image of the shape and size of the tooth and of the root canal area.
The next step is the procedure, which is usually completed within one visit. We use very effective local anaesthetics which make the procedure comfortable.
The specialist makes an opening in the crown of the tooth and cleans the pulp chamber. Once the infected pulp is removed, the tooth can be filled and sealed.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
Endodontically treated teeth have the same functionality, duration and resistance as any other teeth, provided that the patient practices good oral hygiene and visits the dentist regularly.
