Root canal treatment (endodontics) in a calming environment at our Munich dental practice
The key things to know about root canal treatment
When is root canal treatment, also known as endodontics, necessary?
Our goal is to preserve your teeth as best as possible. Root canal treatment is one of the last measures we consider to ensure tooth preservation and avoid tooth loss. In addition to traditional root canal treatment, we carry out examinations of existing root fillings and perform any necessary corrections. We also carry out root end resection surgery.
What does root canal treatment involve?
During root canal treatment, we open the tooth in one place – similar to a filling – so the small root canals can be removed from infected dental pulp. The canals are cleaned, disinfected and refilled to prevent reinfection. In the last step, the tooth is stabilised, for example with a (partial) crown.
Is root canal treatment painful?
Even with severe inflammation, we are very careful and we aim to make sure that the treatment is painless. We eliminate the pain of the inflamed root canal and the reassuring setting of our practice will help put you at ease and calm any fears you might have. We use modern disinfection and filling techniques to ensure your teeth are preserved and looked after as effectively as possible.
