Endodontic treatment, commonly known as root canal treatment, is performed in case of the death of tooth pulp composed of nerves and vessels, or its irreversible inflammation.
Based on X-ray images, a detailed anatomy of the tooth is determined including the number of canals, their shape and course and the length of roots. The treatment is initiated by opening the tooth's chamber and removing all tissues which are infected and damaged by bacteria. This provides full access to the root canals from which the infected pulp is removed. Individual length of each root canal is measured with a specialist endometer. Then, the canals are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected with appropriate agents. The last stage of root canal treatment is drying the canals and tightly filling their interior with special materials which ensure tightness and prevent reinfection of the periapical tissues.
The whole procedure is carried out by experienced and highly specialized endodontic doctors under the microscope which can magnify an image even up to 25 times. Endodontic treatment in our clinics is carried out only with the latest methods and standards established by the Polish Endodontic Society, which confirms our highest effectiveness of over 95% according to the latest research.
All procedures in Dr Sobczak's Clinics can be performed under anaesthesia, ensuring full comfort during the visit.

A special operating microscope used for endodontic surgery gives doctors new therapeutic options, positively influencing the quality of performed procedures and facilitating the doctors’ work, which is also of importance.
In order to carry out the treatment, the specialist must find and carefully prepare all the canals of the tooth, which is extremely difficult and work-consuming. The treatment of the patient under the microscope is recommended when it is necessary to find the outlets of additional canals and unblock the canals which without proper, magnified imaging are classified as clogged. Also, it is easier to remove any broken endodontic instruments from the ducts and to close perforations. It is much easier to track internal and external resorption and to perform endodontic surgery.
To provide the highest care and achieve the best precision, we use magnifications of 6x, 10x, 16x, and even 25x!
