In recent years, there has been an active development of all areas of medicine. Dentistry was no exception. The introduction of new technologies in the treatment of dental canals, the use of innovative devices, the emergence of cutting-edge materials and tools have opened up new opportunities for the development of surgical dentistry and endodontics.
One of the most significant steps forward in the treatment was the use of magnifying optics systems, or rather dental treatment under a microscope, through which you can see the tooth as close as possible. This innovation is especially important for operating microscopy. Thanks to optical magnifying systems, dentists were able to reach a whole new level in the treatment of canals using a microscope. One of the founders of dental microscopy, Harry Car, spoke about the benefits of using optics in medicine. He argued that the doctor can only cure what he can see.
How to get used to the doctor?
Changing tools at any stage of treatment, even for a high-class specialist, is always a certain stress. The use of innovative technologies can aggravate it, given the lack of experience and the need to get used to working with new equipment.
So that dental treatment with a microscope does not cause discomfort and pain, a number of rules must be observed. One of them is the correct position of the body of the dentist and posture when working with an optical device. It is equally important when introducing microscopy in dentistry to correctly install the device itself. If you imagine the process of installing a microscope and start working with it in chronological order, it will look like this:
- Choosing the right dentist position during the treatment period.
- Choosing the right patient position.
- An appropriate arrangement that requires a microscope.
- Adjustment of binoculars according to pupil distance.
- Correction of the position of the patient during treatment.
- Focus adjustment (pre).
- Fine tune focus.
- Correction of binoculars of an assistant doctor.
There are several simple rules on the basis of which it is quite easy to solve the problem of the correct location of the doctor, optical device and patient’s teeth throughout the treatment procedure. So, the back of the doctor should remain straight, the light of the device should be perpendicular to the floor and the root canal, with which the dentist works, choosing one or another tooth, thus treating any tooth under a microscope will be comfortable not only for the doctor, but also for the patient.
All procedures that include treatment in conservative endodontics are subject to control in the reflected image, so the light of the optical magnifying device is directed to the mirror, and from it to the root canal. The position of the patient depends on the position of the microscope, and not vice versa. It should be noted that all these processes in surgical endodontics are much simpler, since they are carried out directly by vision control. Moreover, if necessary, check the shape of the retrograde cavity using a microsurgical mirror, you need to direct the light of the device perpendicular to the axis of the root canal of the tooth.
Dental Diagnostics - Microscopy
The process of diagnosing any dental diseases is greatly simplified thanks to the use of a microscope. The use of the device is essential when identifying a tooth crack syndrome. After removing the previous restoration using a special dye and optical technology, you can easily identify the fracture line.
If a vertical root fracture is suspected, a doctor with a microscope can examine the inner wall of the canal and avoid surgical intervention during the diagnosis.
Microscopic canal treatment
In order for the endodontic treatment to be truly successful, it is very important to ensure the correct access and a sufficient degree of visualization of the mouths of the root canals.
An indispensable assistant in this matter can be a microscope. It is used for:
- identify missing root canals;
- detection of calcified mouths of the canals of the teeth;
- visualization of the additional mesial-buccal canal of the upper molars.
Based on the results of recent studies, it can be argued that the frequency of occurrence of 4 channels among the first and second upper molars (wisdom teeth) tends to zero. At the same time, statistics a decade ago are less optimistic. Such a change in indicators does not indicate the processes of channel transformation, but the constant development of dentistry and the improvement of the skill of specialists using innovative technologies - dental treatment, using an operating microscope.
Under the microscope, such manipulations became absolutely predictable:
- removal of a broken tool;
- open apex tooth treatment;
- closing perforations.
Every day, the use of optical systems in dentistry is becoming increasingly popular. If you have any questions related to dental treatment under a microscope, you can call us at the phone numbers listed on the site.
Magnification is an important factor in dental treatment under the microscope.
As you know, binocular magnifiers can give only one degree of increase. In contrast, microscopes, which are used during operations, provide much more opportunities.
The ability of a microscope to magnify objects directly depends on the focal length of binoculars and lenses, as well as the strength of the eyepieces themselves. Despite the fact that innovative devices are equipped with several degrees of increase, in dentistry, as a rule, the minimum and average increase are used. Maximum indicators are mainly used to control the actions of a doctor.
Root canal treatment under a microscope in Kiev
The root of the tooth is, in fact, its main part, which is located deep in the gum, located in a special funnel in the jaw - the alveolus. Inside the root, there is a bone canal where the pulp is located with vessels and nerves, the defeat of which is primarily caused by a persistent pulsating pain syndrome. An infection that has entered the root canal can pass into the peri-root areas and damage bone tissue at the base of the tooth. Without timely treatment, the tooth will most likely have to be removed, however, if you resort to medical care in time and cure the root canals, you can save the tooth.
Treatment of the root part of the tooth and dental canals is carried out in stages using complex techniques, technologies and equipment, which allows to ensure a high-quality and long-term treatment result. In our clinic, methods are used that correspond to the modern European level:
For penetration into the root cavity of the tooth and examination, as well as cleaning from plaque of the root canals, it is necessary to use special equipment, which helps to penetrate the tooth as deeply as possible. The root canals are curved, thin and sinuous, therefore, ultra-thin instruments and needles are used for the procedure, in diameter at the tip they are no more than 0.06-0.1 mm.
Обеззараживание и дезинфекция тканей зуба и ротовой полости. Всем известно, что именно во рту пребывает львиная доля всех вредоносных микроорганизмов, которые могут повреждать ткани зубов и вызывать иные заболевания. Как известно, в полости рта "обитает" свыше 300 разновидностей микроорганизмов. Для предотвращения развития микроорганизмов в корневом канале и околокорневых тканях, специалистами очищается канал, а затем тщательно обтурируется для предотвращения заражений.
Treatment and research of root canals under a microscope at the European Dental Center is carried out with the help of key specialists using a modern endodontic complex that allows you to determine the length of the root canals and repair damaged tissue.
During the treatment, it is mandatory to stipulate that the procedure is controlled by an X-ray unit: before, on time and, of course, after treatment.
The cleaning of the root canals, as one of the most important procedures for the treatment of the root of the tooth, occurs with the help of mechanical and manual manipulations. Our clinic, treating the root canal, uses exclusively modern equipment and advanced techniques, so the process is almost painless and very quick.
In order to disinfect the root canal of the tooth, they are washed with antiseptic drugs that penetrate all parts of the root system of the tooth, including washing the invisible lateral tubules. If you need a spacious disinfection and cleaning of the tooth canals, you may also need a temporary obstruction, which is carried out by highly effective anti-inflammatory drugs.
Root canal treatment also implies restoration of the tooth after all the treatment procedures. Obstruction of the canals of the tooth is carried out by tight hermetic materials, which, filling the canals, prevent the re-entry of infections.
We use exclusively progressive and proven methods as part of the root canal treatment procedure, namely the method of gutta-percha condensation using computer control and lasers. With the help of examination and control on a computer, we can fully control the progress of the procedure and achieve maximum effect.
The root system is a key part of the tooth, which is responsible for its vital activity and functioning. If the root of the tooth suffers as a result of infections or other problems, this can cause persistent pain, suppuration, as well as diseases of the root of the tooth, which can lead to complete tooth extraction.
Root canal treatment is a responsible, painstaking and very laborious process that requires professional intervention using modern equipment. Previously, this procedure was rather painful, but today, when the treatment is carried out with the help of high-class devices and tools, as well as new technologies, it passes quite comfortably and without obvious pain.
A root canal treatment procedure may be required in cases where the root part of the tooth has been damaged due to the disease. Of course, the crown is most often damaged, and such diseases can be easily determined independently. If caries touched the deeper layers of the tooth, when the first uncomfortable sensations appear, the patient should immediately consult a doctor who can diagnose the disease and provide the necessary procedures, in particular, treatment of canals under a microscope, which the European Dental Center clinic provides at a reasonable price in Kiev.
Why do root diseases occur?
Most often, diseases of the root canal of the tooth cause acute pain, therefore it is not difficult to identify them, however, many patients do not pay due attention to pain and often delay with going to the doctor. Dental root diseases occur in cases of infection of its tissues, which can occur for the following reasons:
· Damage to the tooth as a result of injury;
Infectious diseases of the gums or their improper treatment;
· The penetration of bacteria into the root of the tooth due to the large-scale spread of caries.
In cases of infection of the root of the tooth and pulp, root canal cleaning and complex treatment are required, then qualified specialists will help to save the tooth. The symptomatology of tooth diseases is known to most people: these are sharp pulsating, aching pains from temperature changes, constant, ongoing painful sensations without any external influences, as well as increased body temperature, bad breath and swelling in the area of the affected tooth. Having identified these symptoms, the patient should immediately consult a doctor. Sometimes damage to the root of the tooth and pulp proceed without obvious symptoms until a certain stage, so it is so important to periodically perform preventive examinations at dentists.
How much is the treatment of tooth canals under a microscope (Kiev)
The restoration of the proper condition of the dental canals is carried out with the help of modern premium-class equipment, as well as the most effective methods, thanks to which the process occurs promptly. In addition, modern canal treatment under a microscope implies minimal pain, or their complete absence. Prices for root canal treatment directly depend on the methodology used and the category of restoration materials. The European Dental Center uses the method of condensation of gutta-percha using computer control and high-precision lasers as part of the procedure. Treatment of tooth canals, the price of which will be very affordable, is carried out in a short time (approximately 30 minutes).
