Root canal treatments

Dr. Tetri’s clinic provides endodontic treatment of the root canals under a microscope. We save the teeth that other clinics offer to extract. We are ready to take on the most difficult cases.


Root canals are cone-shaped cavities inside the root of the tooth with the apex at its upper part. The main root canal – which occupies the central position – forms a system of branches at the level of the apical foramen. Premolars, as a rule, have one or two canals. Molars have three or four canals. They contain the pulp, as well as blood vessels.

Poor-quality dental root canal filling leads to the development of inflammatory complications and then to extraction. Root canal treatment should be done by experienced professionals only!

When is root canal treatment necessary?
Inflammation in the roots is a direct indication that one needs endodontic treatment. It occurs alongside:
  • Pulpitis
  • Periodontitis
  • Cysts/granulomas.
The treatment of root canals requires special knowledge and skills. It is better to entrust the treatment of root canals to a certified endodontist.

The doctor examines the root system of the tooth with the Morita 3D Scanner before treatment. This allows him to determine the number and location of root canals, as well as their features (e.g., additional tubules). This helps the doctor to properly assess the treatment plan, and get a well predictable result.

Stages of a root canal treatment

A microscope is used for precision manipulation at all stages.

Removal of caries-affected tissues

The tooth is isolated with a dental dam retractor. Then, under local anesthesia, Dr. Sayin drills out the infected tissue and opens access to the root canals.

Removal of the pulp

He extracts the nerve with a special tool and cleans the root canals of pulp residue and bacteria.

Determining the length of root canals

Using K-files, he determines the length of each canal individually.

If the root canal is under- or over-filled, it will lead to complications. Therefore, the doctor needs to determine the length of each canal in the tooth as accurately as possible!

Mechanical treatment

Using counter-angles with ProFiles, he expands the root canal and removes all constrictions and irregularities.

The risk of breaking off a piece of the file (which would eventually lead to re-inflammation inside the tooth) is virtually eliminated because the counter-angle has a micromotor. The machine stops the movement of the tool if there is a threat of breakage.

Antiseptic treatment
Then, the doctor performs antiseptic treatment of the expanded canals.
Filling the canals with gutta-percha
The doctor fills the root canals with hot/cold gutta-percha – depending on the clinical picture – up to the apex. He takes a targeted X-ray to assess the quality of the filling, whether there are any voids or air bubbles.
Tooth crown restoration
If one third of the crown is lost, the tooth is restored with a ceramic inlay. If more than two-thirds of the crown is destroyed, it is restored with a dental crown.

Why do we use a dental microscope

High-quality endodontic treatment is impossible without a dental microscope. That’s why at Dr. Tetri’s clinic, we use The Global A-Series™ Dental Microscope. It allows us to be microscopically accurate and:

  • Remove only the decay-affected tissues even in the most hard-to-reach places, preserving healthy tissues
  • Treat canals of complex shape (tortuous, with a strong bend) without the risk of root perforation
  • Fill the root canal exactly to the apex
  • Restore the anatomical shape of the tooth.


Does endodontic treatment hurt?

The doctor performs all manipulations after administering an injection of local anesthesia. The patient does not feel any pain.

How long will a tooth last after the root canal treatment?

If the canals are properly filled, the tooth will last more than 20 years.

Can I go to your clinic to have my root canals re-treated?

Yes, we re-do endodontic treatment for patients with a punctured tooth wall or a tool fragment lodged in the root canal. We will help you save a tooth from extraction.
