Pulpitis
is an inflammation of the dental pulp and can be one of the most common and painful affection of the tooth. The pulp contains the blood vessels, the nerves and connective tissue inside a tooth, and provides the tooth’s blood and nutrients. The infection increases the pressure in the pulp and irritates mechanically the nerve fibers, which cause the pain. The pain could be very intense and spreading, sometimes it even can be difficult to identify culprit toothimage001.

is a set of inflammatory diseases affecting the tissues which surround and support the teeth (periodontium). Periodontitis involves progressive loss of the alveolar bone around the teeth, and if left untreated, can lead to the loosening and subsequent loss of teeth. Periodontitis is caused by microorganisms that adhere to and grow on the tooth's surfaces, along with an over-aggressive immune response against these microorganisms. A diagnosis of periodontitis is established by clinical examination of the soft gum tissues around the teeth with a probe and by a radiographic examination (X ray).

The goal of endodontics is perfect removal of infected pulp, chemical and mechanical cleaning of the root canal walls and and hermetic filling the medullary cavity. This prevents the penetration of bacteria from the oral cavity into the bone.

Essential part of this treatment is the exact filling of the root canal. Therefore in our office we use a new generation special device called Apex locator (model: Raypex 5) to determine the end of the root canals. During the treatment of the root canals.

During the treatment of the root canals we use endomotor (special device with rotary endodontic files). The advantages of rotary endodontics are reduced instrumentation times and fewer files used during the procedure. Commonly Nickel-Titanium files are used because of their greater flexibility, which permits increasingly curved roots to be treated. After processing channels and their thorough disinfection, the result should be a perfect hermetic seal of the root canal.
