Endodontics is the branch of dentistry concerning dental pulp and tissues surrounding the roots of a tooth. “Endo” is the Greek word for “inside” and “odont” is Greek for “tooth.” Endodontic treatment, or root canal treatment, treats the soft pulp tissue inside the tooth.
An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in saving teeth.
- In the past year, root canal therapy has certainly made a splash in mainstream media. While some find this to be quite the hot topic, we find this to be a great opportunity to connect with our collaborative, like-minded healthcare providers to advance patient education on alternative therapies with the ultimate target being treatment of disease in a predictable, functional way that supports optimal systemic health. Besides our own scientific knowledge and clinical expriences, we also listen to the public’s growing dissatisfaction with the current healthcare system (or what we prefer to call “sick care system”) that is focused on treating symptoms instead of addressing the root causes of these diseases.
- Our functional apporach is to discuss a custom plan with each of our patients. We take into account all variables when advising our patients; these variables include overall systemic health and lingering systemic inflammation, function of current dentition, history of oral therapy, occlusion, material sensitivity, nutrition, and commitment to managing ongoing health.
- With this in mind, we discuss with each patient the risks, benefits, and alternatives associated with both biological root canal therapy and biological extraction (and potential replacement) of the tooth in question.
1 . Biological Root Canal treatment
What is a Biological Root Canal Treatment?
Root canal treatment: It is the process of
- Removing and cleaning the inner part of the tooth as a result of the infection of the pulp tissue. Blood vessels and nerves called pulp inside the tooth may be infected due to trauma and caries in the teeth.
- Filling the canal with biocompatible materials.
With the root canal procedure, the living part of the tooth comes out. However, the tooth is there with all its structures in a healthy relationship with the bone. It just loses its vitality or sensibility.
How do you know if a Root Canal is infected?
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you should see our specialist right away, as a root canal treatment may be the solution to your problem and leaving it may lead to a serious condition such as abscessing and severe infection:
- Sensitivity to heat or cold
- Tenderness on chewing
- Discolouration of the tooth
- Swelling around the tooth
If the pulp of your tooth is infected, it is imperative that it is removed in order to stop the infection from spreading, causing serious problems and abscessing. The procedure also eliminates the pain that you have been suffering.
The aim of a biological root canal treatment is to:
- Remove the infected pulp from the pulp chamber and root canals to get rid of bacteria
- Fill these areas completely with a biocompatible material in order to prevent any problems end the inflammation, and induce healing of the periapical area of the tooth
- Heal and save the tooth
At Dr. Roze Biodental and BioHealth clinic, we use the latest endodontic technologies to perform a biological root canal treatment – a specially designed microscope gives our specialists a very high level of visibility and laser technology allows for a bacteria-free treatment that is quickly and easily performed. Our biological root canal therapy includes the use of Ozone dental therapy and bioceramics materials for effective disease management.
This procedure involves the ozone dental therapy in the cleaning of the root canals instead of a medical product adapted to commercial.
The use of ozone allows for deeper penetration of the dentinal tubules and accessory canals, thus providing an enhanced bactericidal impact in the tooth with biocompatible materials.
2 . Bioceramics properties
Nowadays, as an alternative to the gutta percha filling material, we use bioceramics, which is a biocompatible material that has a well-established track record of being a reliable and durable canal filling material.
A functional approach in Dentistry promotes health and wellness instead of the treatment of disease.
- Bioceramics properties:
- Endodontic bioceramics are not sensitive to moisture and blood contamination. they are dimensionally stable and expand slightly on setting, they increase root resistance, making them one or the best sealing materials in dentistry.
- When set, they are hard and insoluble consequently ensuring a superior long-term seal. The pH at setting is above 12, which is due to the hydration reaction forming calcium hydroxide and later dissociation into calcium and hydroxyl ions.
- Mineral infiltration zone: Bonds to dentin directly due to the high alkalinity of calcium hydroxide forming a modification of dentine collagen with an intertubular diffusion of carbonate creating micro-tags.
- When bioceramic materials come in contact with tissue fluids, they release calcium hydroxide which interact with phosphates to form hydroxyapatite crystals inside of the dentina tubules. This property may explain some of the tissue-inductive properties of the material:
- Liberation of Ca2+ ions provoking the nucleation of apatite precursors.
- Promotion and activation of mesenchymal stem cells, periodontal ligament stem cells, and dental pulp stem cells, inducing the reparation of periapical tissue.
- Stimulates odontogenic and osteogenic cell proliferation.
- Odontogenic and osteogenic stem cells adhesion to bioceramic surface.
Our biological root canal treatment uses a variety of modern, traditional and revised techniques and material to deal, not only with the oral cavity, but also with the patient’s overall well-being and health. Key objectives of this approach are using the most biocompatible materials, while avoiding and eliminating toxins.
This biological root canal therapy isn’t over once we restore the tooth. Instead, the patient continues to come in to have this tooth monitored and injected with ozone to manage any potential focal inflammation in the area.
If we are monitoring regularly and the patient presents in the future with some inflammatory symptoms with an undiagnosed source, then we may need to reevaluate that tooth.
There is no “guarantee” that this tooth (or an implant) will last a patients’ lifetime. Both of these are suboptimal options relative to maintaining a person’s natural dentition. Our goal is simply to educate our patients and guide them on the best choice for their own health. In some cases, that includes biological root canal therapy. And in others, it includes removal of the tooth.

How to prevent and cure candida in the mouth
Candida is a type of fungus that can cause an infection in the mouth, leading to a condition known as oral thrush. Candida overgrowth is a growing problem in our society due to the overuse of antibiotics, nutrient void foods, stress, and yeast-containing foods.
