Root canal treatment (endodontics)
Thanks to novel therapy concepts, teeth can often be preserved that would have simply been removed in the past.
If a tooth nerve is severely inflamed or even already dead, the tooth does not necessarily have to be extracted. In many cases, the tooth can be saved with root canal treatment.
The nerve is removed from the root canal and the surrounding tooth tissue. The root canal is then sealed.
However, it is important to crown the tooth afterwards, because without an intact nerve it can no longer withstand the normal chewing loads.
Stop caries without drilling
With the Icon method, initial caries can be stopped painlessly in just one treatment, without damaging the healthy tooth substance. For this purpose, a thin liquid resin is applied to the carious tooth. The plastic soaks in and hardens. This prevents the progression of caries.
