The Endodontic and Dental Traumatology Division looks after patients, who experience injury to the dental pulp (tooth nerve). Causes of damage to the dental pulp can be inflammation caused by bacteria (e.g. by caries), but also an accident involving the tooth. To preserve the affected tooth, a so-called root canal treatment can be performed.

This involves creating access to the root canal system, removing the compromised pulp and bacteria, and disinfecting the root canals. The root canals and the access are then sealed tightly. If necessary, a microscope is used to view and clean as many root canals as possible.

Depending on the tooth, root canal treatment can be a complex treatment, which is usually carried out in two sessions.

Also in the student courses, root canal treatments are supervised by dentists from the Endodontic and Dental Traumatology Division  and are performed with the same high quality standards.
