What Is Endodontics?

Endodontics is the field of dentistry which concerns the disease of the pulp tissue inside your tooth.

Pulpal inflammation and infection do not always result in immediate signs or symptoms. To prevent local damage to the bone surrounding a diseased pulp, this tissue can be removed and replaced with a filling material called gutta percha.

By carrying out this procedure which is completed entirely under microscopic conditions, your endodontist is aiming to prolong the life of your tooth for years to come.

What to Expect

What can I expect during a visit with my Endodontist?

All clinical procedures from topical anesthetic application to final occlusal refinements are carried out using a state of the art surgical microscope (A6 6-step microscope).

In order to provide specialist endodontic care at the highest level, an initial consultation is carried out, including:

  • A comprehensive pain history based on your presenting symptoms
  • A digital radiographic assessment
  • A clinical microscopic examination to assess the condition of the tooth
  • The neighbouring teeth as well as the supporting periodontal tissues

A complete discussion will follow, explaining the pre-treatment condition of the tooth and the working diagnosis based on the presenting symptoms. Treatment options will then be described, including, the predictability of the different treatment options, the expected duration of treatment visits, visit number and a discussion of fees.
