Toothache is terrible! Violent, pulsating and, most of the time, unexpected, toothache immediately blocks the usual course of life. Usually, toothache is invalidating and means that there is somewhere an irritated nerve or at the root of the tooth there is an infection. Evolution of caries, abscesses, dental cracks or gum problems are accompanied by bacterial invasions that cause nerve damage and cause canal infections. These, in addition to the unbearable pain, can affect the integrity of the tooth and may even lead to its loss. Patients suffering from such ailments should contact a dental practitioner who will leach the affected tooth as soon as possible, preferably by endodontic endodontic treatment under a microscope. It includes a series of procedures, which involve removing the entire contents of the tooth, disinfecting and sealing the dental channels in order to prevent bacteria from being restocked with the affected tooth.
Unfortunately, a dentist, even one experienced, can not always see exactly what is in the canal of the teeth (especially because of the individual shape of each patient). Now, even in Moldova, there is the possibility to apply the most complex and innovative working technique currently existing in endodontics – interventions performed at the Carl Zeis microscope. In the dental clinic of Chisinau Imperial Dent, this device revolutionized endodontic treatments, as it opened new diagnostic and treatment opportunities, enabling difficult cases to be solved with a reserved prognosis. The microscope may, of course, be used in most dental procedures, but an endodontic physician will benefit more from such a device.
Using the most advanced technologies and an interdisciplinary approach, Imperial Dent Clinic develops customized treatments under this endodontic microscope: simple channel treatments, single-line or pluriradicular treatments and treatments. These involve restoring or maintaining the internal functionality of the teeth in the long run by treating / removing the nerves or dental pulp. The presence of an endodontic microscope in this dental clinic in Chisinau allows for the achievement of best quality dental treatments. Obviously, the qualitative technique decreases the number of necessary interventions, the amount of medication used, so in the end a different price is obtained for the same endodontic treatment under other conditions.
A canal obturation performed under a microscope by a professionally trained endodontist can be performed during a single session. The device offers direct visibility to pathological agents and operating modes for an outstanding result. The images are very clear and can be magnified up to 30 times, and strong illumination allows you to observe subtle details that can not be seen with the naked eye – an extremely important moment for proper diagnosis and proper treatment. The light source is oriented in the same direction as the doctor, no shadows are formed, and the colors are rendered with fidelity. The use of this precision instrument makes it possible to solve cases with a high degree of complexity, avoiding the need for dental extraction. A well-done canal treatment can render the patient’s teeth functional, with a success rate of over 90%. For example, in the case of a simple caries, bacteria infected tissue can be removed with the naked eye, but there is no guarantee that a perfectly healthy tissue is obtained. Under the microscope, however, all infiltrations become visible and the dentist works with maximum precision, ensuring a completely clean environment. The remarkable advantages of the endodontic microscope:
- detection of atypical root canals;
- locating the perforations in the root of the tooth and sealing them;
- identification of micro-cracks and fractures in the length of the tooth;
- detection of root canal inlets;
- identify and treat channels that are not accessible (calcified);
- restoring wrong channel treatments;
- viewing those broken into the root canal, simplifying and removing them;
- saving teeth that otherwise should be extracted;
- generating pictures or video recordings during endodontic treatment, facilitating communication with the patient.
The views of dentists using this microscope technique are also as positive as possible. They confess that they are less tired both mentally and physically. Patients feel comfortable and safe, and the result is fast and lasting.
