  • What is endodontics? What is the role of the endodontist?
    Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with diseases inside the tooth by treating pain, inflammation and infections that a patient may be dealing with. An endodontist is a dental surgeon who has completed postgraduate studies in the field of endodontics. Knowledge and experience combined with specialized techniques and access to special equipment allow him to deal with demanding cases in the best way so that the natural teeth remain in the mouth and do not need to be removed. Read more information about what an endodontist is and what his role is on the corresponding page.
  • What is a dental microscope?
    A dental microscope is a specialized optical instrument designed for enhanced visualization during dental procedures, especially in the field of endodontics. It is an innovative technological achievement that is also used in other medical specialties, such as ENT, as it offers adjustable magnification levels (up to x32), intense illumination and an extremely sharp image. Endodontists use dental microscopes to magnify and illuminate the inside of teeth so they can successfully identify and treat complex anatomical systems by performing treatments in greater detail and accuracy. The increased precision offered by the microscope contributes to higher success rates in endodontic treatments, reduces the risk of complications and improves the overall quality of patient care.< /p> Read more on our dental microscope page.
  • When is an endodontic treatment necessary?
    The decision on the need for endodontic treatment is made by the dentist after analyzing the history and symptoms and completing a thorough clinical and radiographic examination. Most often, endodontic treatment is carried out either on teeth in which irreversible inflammation or necrosis of the pulp (nerve) has been established or in cases where the removal of the pulp (nerve) is a necessary condition for the correct construction of a prosthetic work (bridge, case, etc.) .)
  • Is endodontic treatment a painful treatment?
    The answer is no. All treatments performed by the endodontist are done under local anesthesia. It is not unlikely that there will be pain after the appointment, but it is tolerable and easily treated with simple painkillers.
  • How many appointments are necessary to complete an endodontic treatment (root canal treatment)?
    Most endodontic treatments are completed in one or two sessions. However, since each case is different, the dentist will inform you in detail about the needs of your own case. The duration of each session depends on the particular incident.
  • What are the alternatives to endodontic treatment ?
    Most of the time, the only alternative is to extract the tooth and place an implant or bridge to replace the tooth.
  • Will I be able to drive after treatment?
    Yes. No drugs are given that hinder your ability to drive.
  • Will I be able to work after endodontic treatment?
    Yes. Nevertheless, you will still have the feeling of local anesthesia in the treated area for a few more hours.
  • How much does an endodontic treatment cost?
    The cost depends on the type of treatment and the position of the tooth in the mouth. The endodontist will inform you about this at your appointment.
  • Can I ever have a problem with a root treated tooth again?
    Endodontic treatment is a treatment with very high success rates, which of course depend on the initial condition of the tooth. The training of the dentist, the techniques and the materials that will be used play a very important role, so the choice of an endodontist to carry out a demanding case is of great importance. We must not forget that the correct final restoration of the tooth (sealing, case, etc.) is a very important factor that will also determine the success of a treatment. If all of the above are not observed or the patient does not follow the long-term instructions given by the treating dentists, there is a chance that the tooth will need further treatment.
  • How should I take care of my tooth after an endodontic treatment?
    Usually after endodontic treatment the tooth is covered with a temporary filling until the final restoration is placed by the referring dentist. Until this is done, we should avoid chewing on this side of the mouth so as not to cause a fracture in the tooth. Also, we must observe the rules of oral hygiene. For back teeth with endodontic treatment, it is recommended to place a prosthetic restoration (case or inlay) to reduce the risk of losing the tooth due to fracture in the future.

  • I'm pregnant. Can I have an endodontic treatment?
    An endodontic treatment can be performed safely during pregnancy. If possible, we prefer to proceed with treatment during the second trimester of pregnancy. We always want the approval of the patient's gynecologist-obstetrician.
  • How often should I see the endodontist after a endodontic treatment?
    After an endodontic treatment, we will recommend that you visit us for a review at an interval of 6 months to 1 year, depending on the initial condition of your tooth and the treatment you received, in order to evaluate the success of operation and maintaining the health of the tooth. In general, we recommend that you visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and cleaning of the teeth and follow the review program he has recommended.
