The treatment consists of removing the infected pulp (dental nerve) in the tooth’s root. The space is filled with gutta-percha and root canal cement after thoroughly cleaning and shaping the root canals.
To make the diagnosis and ensure a successful treatment, we use 2D and 3D X-ray imaging, an operating microscope, and technological instruments for measuring and shaping canals.
Endodontics treatments can involve conscious sedation to ensure a more comfortable experience to the patient.
It loses its organic components, which provide elasticity to absorb the forces experienced during chewing. That’s why it should be protected from fractures with appropriate reconstructions, such as inlays or capsules.

Not necessarily. Only if the caries have reached the dental pulp. In this case, caries cause painful inflammation, which can involve the bone tissue.
