Benefits of microscopic root canal treatment (RCT).
- Precise and minimal cutting of tooth structure is possible.
- Facilitates localization of very fine canals like MB2 & DB2 canals.
- Micro fractures in tooth can be seen.
- Chance of instrument separation is reduced.
- Instrument if separated can be retrieved under microscopic vision.
- Complete cleaning of root canals w.r.t tissue tags and debris can be ensured.
- Complete filling without any leftover spaces can be ensured.
- It is a modern method which has also benefitted other areas of dentistry.

Other modalities used with microscopic root canal at Goel Dental
A special latex sheet held around tooth to be treated is used to isolate tooth from mouth and thus preventing any saliva or infective material to get inside root canals.
It is an electronic device to measure length of root canal for precise determination of length of root canal to be filled. Root ZX mini from J Morita is the world?s most advanced device for this purpose.
After cleaning an irrigant is placed in canal and activated with ultrasonic tip to further remove any remaining dead tissue.
Canals after debridement requires cleaning with irrigant and usually a simple needle and syringe is used for this but ENDOVAC is a unique system that first pushes irrigant inside root canal and then sucks it back with negative pressure. Result thus is a thorough cleaning of canals and no chance of pushing debris further into canal.
Drying of canals
Cone shaped paper points are then used to dry canals before finally filling them with GP or motorised GP.
Gutta percha a plant derivative is used to obliterate the empty canals but that leaves some scope for empty space and thus a place where bacteria can grow. This disadvantage is circumvented by using motorised filling. Elements System B from Sybron Endo is a state of art equipment to accomplish this by using super-hot liquid rubber based inert material into canals.
