The goal of endodontic treatment is to destroy microorganisms in root canal system and to protect the tooth and its surrounding tissues from infection. For this purpose, tooth root canal must be cleaned and sealed. In Indigo Dental Clinics, for root canal treatment, we use lens, surgical or dental operating microscope with titanium files, endodontic ultrasonic files or diode laser. Consequently, we get full disinfection and permanently closed root canal. In most cases, a crown must also be placed so as to restore the external structure of the tooth and bring back its full form and function.
Root canal treatment is highly successful, and most teeth that undergo the procedure go on to last for the rest of a patient’s lifetime, as long as they maintain a proper oral hygiene routine.
