Endodontic treatment is one of the sectors of dentistry, which has been rapidly developing over the past few years. The introduction of working with magnification facilitated progress in endodontic treatment especially in primary pulp chamber trepanation and root canal treatment, as well as in secondary root canal treatment so-called reendo.
When working with magnification it is definitely easier to find narrowed root canal openings, remove broken instruments from root canals or remove old filling materials.
Working with magnification opens up new opportunities; however, it does not mean that each and every root canal treatment should be performed under magnification. Most teeth can be treated without the use of magnifying glass. This often shortens treatment time and significantly reduces costs as compared to treatment done under a microscope.
Standard endodontic treatment relies on preparing root canals in dry field using rubber dam, suction pump, electronic endometer, ultrasound cavitation tools, mechanical and ultrasonic tools for root canal preparation, the use of concentrated disinfection liquids and synthetic materials for root canal filling using thermoplastic techniques. Increasingly, the standard root canal treatment is one-step treatment, in dry field using rubber dam, a microscope or dental loupes.
