For root canal treatment, an accurate approach must be used to remove the infected pulp (nerve) and disinfect the inside of the tooth. Hand tools (files) or rotating mechanical tools, along with disinfectant solutions, are used for this purpose. Once the root canal is clean and disinfected, it must then be hermetically filled to stop reinfection of the root canal system. The effectiveness of the treatment can be limited by the anatomical complexity of the tooth itself and by the fact that the disinfectant cannot reach the deepest part of the root (leaving open the possibility that the problem does not get resolved).
High technologies for root canal therapy
Developer of the PIPS technique first and of SWEEPS technique later, Drs.Olivi with their experience and competence, use laser technology and the SWEEPS laser technique, carried out under the dental microscope, making easier to clean and disinfect the root canal, thereby increasing the chances of success.
