To perform endodontics, the dentist accesses the root canal of the tooth in order to remove the pulp tissue when it is not possible to preserve its vitality. Once this is done, he proceeds to fill with the appropriate material to finally seal the opening.

This eliminates pain, discomfort and infections in order to preserve the tooth and extend its useful life.

Steps to follow in endodontics

  • Diagnostic X-ray: It allows visualizing and analyzing the ducts in order to make a correct diagnosis.
  •  Local anesthesia: Local anesthesia is applied at the beginning of the procedure to avoid discomfort and intense pain.
  • Isolation: A rubber dam is usually used to isolate the tooth and avoid complications during the process.
  • Pulp chamber opening: To access the affected canals.
  • Conductometry: Consists of the cleaning of the root canals, as well as their measurement and radiological verification.
  • Hermetic sealing: The opening is properly sealed with a special material at a height suitable for chewing.
  • Final X-ray: To check that the procedure has been done correctly.
