Policlínica Dental Rogé (Andorra):  What is endodontics?

Endodontics is a dentistry specialism that deals with treatment of the interior of the tooth and consists of the treatment and prevention of periapical infections.

Specialists at Policlínica Dental Rogé (Andorra) perform endodontic treatments of all kinds:  dental and molars, single visit endodontics, etc. At the service of patients needing optimal dental or molar recovery.

Policlínica Dental Rogé:  we’re specialists in dental root canals and molars

A specialist performs endodontics, or a molar dental treatment, when the said piece can no longer be kept “alive”, either due to necrosis or to necrotic risk.

With a local anaesthesia, a dental or molar endodontics treatment consists in creating an adequate opening at the occlusal surface of the tooth, to permit access to the pulp chamber and to the root canals.  In a single endodontics visit, a cleansing of teeth canals is performed, to the very apex. Following the cleaning, the tooth or molar is sealed once again, and is restored by means of a filling or prosthetic restoration (crown), as required.

Symptoms that indicate the need of an endodontic treatment

Some symptoms include pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discolouration of the tooth or molar part, swelling and tenderness of the adjacent gums.

Policlínica Dental Rogé explains why it is necessary to remove the dental pulp

In cases of endodontics, the dental experts at Policlínica Dental Rogé (Andorra) consider that if the infected tooth pulp is not removed, in addition to causing pain, the swelling and problems arising from such infection may cause serious injury to the jaw.

If, therefore, a tooth or molar part is subjected to an endodontic treatment, a decision may be made to remove the dental pulp.

What is an endodontic treatment?  Single visit endodontic service

Our endodontic treatment service requires between 1 and 3 visits to our specialists in Andorra. It includes these processes: the extraction of the infected dental pulp, the cleansing and sealing of the pulp chamber and the cleansing and sealing of the root canals of the dental piece or molar.
