How Microscope Assisted Endodontics Can Help Preserve Your Tooth
A healthy smile is an indication of good oral health. However, like with any other part of the body, your teeth are also prone to infections and diseases. Dental infection or abscess is usually a buildup of pus that forms inside the teeth or gums. The abscess usually comes from a bacterial infection affecting the soft pulp of the tooth due to bad oral habits. The dental abscess is typically divided into three types; Gingival, periodontal and periapical. If you suffer from unexplained toothache, a bad taste in the mouth, and fever; chances are you are suffering from a bacterial dental abscess. One of the most effective methods to save an infected tooth is root canal treatment. Microscope-assisted root canal treatments are becoming the norm for most dental infections as it enables our experts to focus on even the most minute regions of the teeth or oral cavity. At The Dome MedDental Clinic DMCC, our Endodontic specialists utilize dental microscopes for all major and minor procedures to ensure precision and perfection during treatment.
Benefits of root canal treatment
Depending upon the severity of the infection and the affected teeth, the root canal procedure typically takes two or three appointments. When a tooth is inflamed due to infection, the decomposed pulp and the puss has to be cleared through root canal procedure and a crown or filling has to be placed to cover and save the damaged tooth from falling off. The results of a root canal treatment are long-lasting and can retain the functionality of your teeth for a lifetime.
How Microscope helps in root canal treatment
While most endodontists perform the root canal treatment using basic magnification, our specialists rely on high-precision microscope to provide the best possible dental care to our patients.
Some of the root canal treatments are impossible to perform under basic magnification, which is why dental microscopes are no longer a luxury. The microscope can provide an accurate image of the affected teeth, which is virtually invisible to the naked eye. These include:
- Narrow and precise root canal entrances
- Hidden canals
- Dental root fractures
- Extreme changes to the tooth due to ageing
- Trauma induced calcified canals
With the use of a dental microscope, our Endodontic specialists can accurately identify the issue and provide tailored treatment to restore your infected teeth. The high level of precision and expertise will ensure that not only your infected tooth is saved, but the surrounding teeth are also spared from the spread of infection.
Recovering from root canal treatment
During the recovery phase, patients are advised not to bite or chew on hard foods until our Endodontic specialist permits you. Also, with good oral care habits and regular dental cleaning appointments, you can keep most dental issues away.
