Dental pain is most commonly caused by inflammation or infection of the tooth's pulp.

Endodontics is the specialty of dentistry that deals with diagnosing and treating disorders of the tooth's pulpal tissue which contains nerve tissue, blood vessels, and connective tissue.

Root Canal Therapy (root canals) involves removal of pulpal tissues, cleaning and shaping the root canals, and filling the canals.

Used in medicine for years, the dental microscope has become an invaluable tool when performing endodontic (root canal) treatment and it is the standard of care in endodontics. Also, the dental microscope is used to find cracks and detect any defects on your teeth before any major problems develop.

The use of the dental microscope, provides great magnification capabilities, better access to detect small details with great precision, ensuring that the anatomy of the tooth is more readily inspected. This greatly enhances the abilities to locate extra root canals inside your tooth. As a result, you will benefit by having a quicker and a more efficient procedure expecting an even higher success rate.
