Endodontics is the discipline of dental medicine dedicated to the study and treatment of diseases of the dental pulp (internal and vital part of the tooth).
When this tissue is affected, whether by fracture, caries or other infections, Endodontic* Treatment is the only way to keep the tooth healthy and functional.
Current Endodontics presents very predictable results when we reach the excellence of the technique, which is only possible with the use of a clinical microscope.
The use of the Clinical Microscope allows an appropriate approach to root canals, complicated anatomy and resolution of complications by enlarging the field of view.
In spite of the very predictable results of Endodontic Treatments, in a small percentage of cases, it may not be possible to control the infection at the bone level and in these situations a surgical approach – Endodontic Microsurgery may be necessary.
Endodontic Microsurgery is another type of Endodontic Treatment with a clinical microscope and a direct surgical approach to the infection site, which may be for diagnosis and/or treatment only.
