In our dental practice in Javea, Spain the root canal procedure is carried out with the most modern techniques (machine-based reprocessing and electronic length measurement). It is extremely important to detect and clean all affected root canals, down to the root tip. Our high success rate confirms that we constantly succeed in this. We perform root canal treatments with the help of the very well-known system “R-Smart Plus”.
To prevent bacteria from settling again, the pulp chamber down to the root nerves get filled with a self-setting paste and is then tightly closed.
Getting rid of all bacteria and infections is essential for a root canal treatment to be successful.
If you suffer from toothache do not wait too long before contacting your dentist. An early examination of your tooth raises the chances of a successful caries treatment or of a possible root canal procedure significantly.
Dental X-rays can spot trouble early on in your mouth, teeth, gums and jaw. Treating problems before they get serious can save money.
What types of problems do X-rays help detect?
X-rays help your dentist diagnose problems in your teeth and jaws.
In adults, X-rays show:
Decay, especially small areas of decay between teeth.
Decay beneath existing fillings.
Bone loss in the jaw.
Changes in the bone or root canal due to infection.
Condition and position of teeth to help prepare for tooth implants, braces, dentures or other dental procedures.
Abscesses (an infection at the root of a tooth or between the gum and a tooth).
Cysts and some types of tumors.
In children, X-rays determine:
If decay is developing.
If there is enough space in the mouth to fit all incoming teeth.
If wisdom teeth are developing.
If teeth are impacted (unable to emerge through the gums).
