The reasons for root canal treatments are manifold and include an inflammation of the tooth nerve due to an earlier deep cavity, an irritation, a trauma or an accident.
The inflamed tissue has to be removed in a root canal treatment.
This treatment is carried out with modern equipment of high quality so that your own tooth can be preserved. The dead nerve tissue is removed with special instruments, the canal system is rinsed, sanitized, and a medication is inserted into the tooth to eliminate the bacteria. Finally, the root is filled with a malleable root filling material and, if necessary, the tooth is stabilized with an abutment. A crown can additionally stabilize and protect the tooth and optimize its long-term preservation.
