What is root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment refers to...
 
 
 
 
Is there any pain either during or after treatment?
The purpose of the treatment is to eliminate pain caused by inflammation or infection of the pulp tissue. Thanks to advances in anesthetic technology, very few patients experience pain during treatment. The patient may experience discomfort or sensitivity to stimuli for the several days immediately after treatment. In particular, patients suffering pain or infection at the time of treatment are more likely to experience post-treatment pain. This kind of discomfort and pain can be alleviated by painkilling medication.
 
   
 
How many treatments are required?
In most cases, treatment is completed in two or three visits to the clinic. Where there is no infection in the tooth, treatment may be completed in one visit. However, in some cases, patients may be required to visit the clinic once or twice a year for post-operative observation.
 
   
 
How can I make an appointment?
Although basically, a letter of introduction is required from the patient's regular dentist, our clinic can arrange introduction to a dental clinic for patients with no regular dentist. Note that appointments cannot be made over the Internet.
 
   
 
How much does treatment cost?
The cost differs depending on factors such as the condition and type of the tooth: Please enquire directly.
 
   
 
Is non-endodontic treatment also available?
I am afraid that we only provide endodontic treatment. Since post-treatment restorative procedures should be performed as soon as possible, patients should make an appointment with their regular dentist at the earliest opportunity. We can introduce patients to dental clinics matched to needs, but only for patients without a regular dentist.
 
   
 
Is there any need for concern over X-ray dosages?
We use digital X-rays at our clinic. Digital X-ray dosage is approximately 80% lower than that of conventional X-rays.
 
   
 
Do you take adequate measures to prevent infection?
Cross-infection prevention measures implemented by our clinic include autoclave sterilization of instruments and use of disposable instruments and materials.
 
   
 
What is a surgical operating microscope?
A surgical operating microscope is an instrument used for procedures requiring a high degree of precision and technology in fields such as ophthalmology and brain and heart surgery and has begun to be used in the field of dentistry for endodontic treatment. We believe that treatment using a surgical operating microscope should preferably be undertaken by a technician who has undergone training provided by a specialized body.
