One of the latest developments in dentistry is possibility to conduct certain treatments under microscope. Along with possibilities of advanced technology, new treatment approaches came out in endodontics (canal treatment). As supported by many scientific researches, treatment success, endurance of treated tooth and its quality are increased.
If the tissue inside the tooth is infected or necrotic, canal treatment is required. On the contrary to what is known widely, the tissues that keep the teeth are not this vessel and nerve package, they are healthy jaw bones and gingival tissues. With successful canal treatment, tooth can stay in the mouth for a lifetime. Also, endodontics take an important place in preventive dentistry because the infection is treated and treatment of other necessities is prevented which would happen due to extraction.
Alive tissue, blood vessel and nerves in the teeth differ from root edge and it is an open canal system that opens into the gingival and even intraoral cavity with small canals located in the hard tissues. Therefore, treatment of infection of this system must be done carefully and it must be filled in away to cut the contact with outer side thinking of it in three dimension. In order to do this three dimensional Hermetic filling, motorized tool systems are used. Rotary systems, electronic canal length measuring device, ultrasonic tools, torch adjustable flexible tools and specially developed hand tools are used for cleaning the canal system and making it more proper for a filling. Only an experienced dentist can do this sensitive treatment successfully.
Dental operation microscope enlightens and enlarges this complicated canal systems, letting the doctors to see and treat what they see. Seeing the tooth and canal systems this much lets us use the tools better and make it possible to do canal treatments which were not possible before. Micro canals which cannot be seen with naked eyes, broken hand tools in the canal, tooth perforations etc. can be treated with microscope.
Cases that are difficult to treat due to various anatomic variations, pathologic formations and or iatrogenic reasons are treated under microscope.
Dental microscope which makes it more qualified in both treatment technique and ergonomic features and makes it possible to do canal treatment in some cases, undoubtedly provide quality and comfort for patients too.
