Modern Endo: The Key to Successful Treatment
Prof. Dr. Marco Martignoni, DDS – Italy
Modern Endodontics gives the opportunity of obtaining fast and reliable treatments mainly due to the fact that instruments used for shaping the main canal are better performing.
Today we can rely on new designs associated with new metallurgic approach for reaching unique results in terms of gliding and shaping. Flexibility and resistance are the key words for the new era but just as ell minimally invasiveness, related to new instruments, will leave teeth that will last better to function when properly restored. The use of digital technology is guiding locators and endodontic motors in order to have safer, faster and better treatments. Post-Endo restoration is then easily achieved using modern universal adhesiveness and composites in order to restore the endodontically involved teeth.
Final objective of the endodontic treatment in not only to get rid of the biological tissue and of the possible infection, but also create a new system that may be able to work properly for the designed function as long as possible after the treatment is completed.
The workflow in Endo Restorative procedures is obtained following precise steps and protocols directed to accomplish a new system that is intended to work in the moth as similar as possible to the original tooth.
The need in endodontic treatment is not only to remove all tissue and bacteria as possible from the system but also to fix back the broken parts of the tooth involved so to enable chewing and so to offer resistance to future infiltration.
