Dental Devitalization

What is endodontic treatment about?

This treatment consists in a set of varied possibilities aimed at restoring the normality of dental tissues or at least keeping the tough structure (tooth) in its alveolus, without the presence of inflammation or infection. The treatment of the canal is based on the removal of all tissue, alive or not, from the pulp chamber and the root canal system present in the roots such as their cleaning and widening of these channels for later sealing through a proper filling.

How is this treatment performed?

In cases of changes caused by caries, dental fractures, dental trauma, endo-periodontal lesions, prosthetic needs and other endodontic pathologies, “endodontic treatment” or “canal treatment”, also commonly known as “devitalization” is indicated, aiming at maintaining the tooth in the oral cavity and the health of periapical tissues.
