When is this procedure indicated?
Endodontic therapy is indicated in the treatment of both vital and necrotic teeth so patients can preserve natural teeth in function and aesthetics.
How is it performed?
- local anesthesia;
- pre-endodontic reconstruction of the dental crown, in case of particularly destroyed teeth, to contain the cleansing fluids used;
- isolation of the surgical field by a rubber dam: this highlights the tooth to be treated while protecting the oral cavity from ingestion of liquids or other toxic substances;
- actual therapy (opening of the pulp chamber, exploratory probing of the canals, cleansing, shaping and three-dimensional obturation of the root canal system, intraoperative and postoperative radiographs);
- referral to the relevant specialist colleague for finalization of the tooth element;
- periodic radiographic checks in case, for example, of monitoring wound healing.
The techniques and materials used include the most modern instrumentation and are strictly in line with endodontic methodologies supported by national and international scientific publications.
