What is a microscopic root canal?

As the name suggests, a microscopic root canal is similar to traditional root canal treatments but uses a microscope to enhance the precision and effectiveness of the surgery.

This dental treatment works by removing the infected or damaged pulp from inside a tooth’s canal, cleaning the canal to eliminate bacteria, and then filling and sealing it to prevent future infections.

Benefits of a microscopic root canal

There are several reasons why microscopic root canal is used here at Whitehouse Dental. Here are the top five:

Enhanced Visibility

The microscope offers high levels of magnification and illumination, allowing your dentist to see the intricate details of the tooth’s root canal system more clearly. This visibility is crucial for identifying and treating all the affected areas, including tiny side canals that might be missed by the naked eye.

Increased Precision

With improved visibility, your dentist can perform the procedure with greater precision, preserving as much of the natural tooth as possible.

Improved Outcomes

The enhanced precision and visibility often lead to better cleaning and filling of the canals, which can improve the success rate of root canal treatments and the longevity of the results.

Detection of Complexities

Microscopes help in identifying complexities such as additional canals, calcified canals, or fractures within the tooth that may affect the outcome of the treatment.

Less Invasive

Because the approach is more precise, it tends to be less invasive compared to traditional methods, potentially leading to quicker recovery times and less post-procedure discomfort.

The process of a microscopic root canal

When it comes to dental treatments, it’s only natural to know what to expect. Here are the steps included in microscopic root canal surgery:

Step 1 – Consultation

Before any type of dental treatment, a consultation with one of the experts here at Whitehouse Dental is crucial.

If you’re experiencing the related symptoms, we can perform a full and in-depth assessment that allows us to get to the root of the problem and create an appropriate treatment plan for you.

We will take X-rays of the tooth/teeth in question and discuss the process of a microscopic root canal with you.

Step 2 – Payment and appointment booking

We will then run through payment options for this treatment type and get you booked in as soon as we can.

If necessary, we will also discuss possible pain relief options for you.

Step 3 – Microscopic root canal time

It’s now time for your appointment!

The amount of sessions it will take to complete depends on the severity of your concern. However, for most patients, the process will be complete in just one appointment.

Step 4 – Restoring the dead tooth

Your dentist may wish to restore the dead tooth with a composite overlay or crown. This will be discussed during your consultation and made clear in your treatment plan.

Who needs a microscopic root canal?

Individuals experiencing complex dental symptoms may require a microscopic root canal, especially when experiencing symptoms like persistent pain, sensitivity to temperature changes, swollen gums, tooth discolouration, gum abscesses and pain when chewing.
