The cleaning and shaping of the root-canal systems are the deciding step of endodontic treatment. Cleaning means the removal of all organic parts, bacterial by-products and toxins from the root-canal system. The organic tissue, bacteria, as well as toxic substances are dissolved in the entire root-canal system with special cleaning solutions. Shaping means the development of a logical cavity form with microscopically fine flexible stainless-steel files (some of them up to 0,06 millimeters in diameter!). Leftover tissue is removed and the root-canal system is three-dimensionally enlarged according to its anatomy.
After this procedure the root-canal system is three-dimensionally filled. We use guttapercha, a material related to natural rubber, for the filling combined with adhesive cement.
Then the tooth is sealed with a build-up material and is prepared perfectely for the final restorative treatment of your dentist.
