Study, diagnosis and treatment
The most known, and feared, endodontics procedure is the root canal treatment or devitalisation. This treatment involves removing the infected nerve, cleaning and disinfecting the entire root canal system and filling and sealing the root canal system.
The dentist removes the nerve and blood-vessels, cleans and disinfects with sodium hypochlorite and proceeds by filling and sealing the root canal system with filling materials; the filling prevents the reformation of infections. The final step consists of restoring the chewing function of the dental element.
Prophylaxis Cleaning with calcium phosphates
We recommend regular applications of calcium phosphates-based products to maintain the correct enamel mineralisation and prevent caries, white spots, sensitive gums etc., especially during childhood.
Fill up tooth grooves with sealants
The OMS and the Department of Health recommend sealants to fill up the grooves in permanent molars and premolars to guarantee a better cleaning of children’s teeth occlusal surface and prevent the risk of bacterial infiltration and decay.
This procedure is painless and safe but must be carried out according to the correct timing of intervention.
The dentist will guide you in choosing the right moment to carry out this important form of prevention.
We recommend at least six-monthly visits and professional hygiene sessions.
