ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Endodontic (root canal) treatments using a surgical microscope
The aim of root canal treatment is to completely remove the bacteria-infected tooth nerve from inside the tooth, to clean and disinfect all cavities and then to close them securely and permanently and then treat the tooth with a crown.
This is the only way to preserve a tooth in the oral cavity with a probability of 96%. Pain-free and resilient.
This only works, however, with special equipment, techniques and a great deal of knowledge about the anatomy of the roots. Success rates using conventional (no microscope, only hand instruments) treatments are only about 50%.
Specialist in endodontics
As my goal has always been to preserve teeth painlessly and gently and to treat them correctly, I considered the training to become a specialist in endodontics an absolute MUST. And of, course, the Americans are far ahead of us when it comes to this – I completed several years of further training in Munich and Philadelphia to acquire the specialist knowledge and techniques.
However, from a holistic point of view, root canal treatment of a dead tooth must be viewed critically and, under certain circumstances, only as a temporary solution, since dead teeth represent interference fields for the organism.
Despite the best micro-endodontics, we technically cannot get a bacteria-proof root. Accessory side channels remain, in which different pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria remain, which damage the surrounding tissue by secreting harmful metabolic products (toxins) and enter the bloodstream via the lymphatic system.
Alternatively, dead teeth are replaced with ceramic implants, ideally as planned immediate implants, so that the patient has no gap in the dentition and the bone does not degrade in the first place.
