Endodontic or root canal treatment is a very important part of dentistry. Endodontic diseases are often caused by infection, trauma or iatrogenic complications. When endodontic pathology is present, professional treatment is necessary and latest technologies guarantee services of highest quality.
What happens when the pulp of a tooth is infected? How does endodontic pathology occur?
When the infection reaches pulp of the tooth, blood vessels are damaged and tissue starts to degenerate. Usually, this process is followed by pain (sometimes very strong and acute or dull and continuous), elevated tooth feeling, swelling, fever or emergence of fistula.
Inflammation of the pulp of the tooth can occur due to:
Trauma (e.g. tooth chipping, submerging, etc. )
Forces exceeding biological capabilities of periodontium during orthodontic treatment
How does the endodontic treatment procedure go?
Firstly, the correct endodontic cavity is formed. The dentist will find main and additional entrances of root canals, remove remains of old filling materials, find calcified canals and effectively remove any remnants from root canals. To perform this procedure, dentist relies on German microscope “Carl Zeiss” which is known for its imaging quality and also “Satelec” ultrasonic machine P5 Newtron XS. Root canals are formed using both – manual and rotary “ProTaper” tapers. Hot gutta-percha technique, which enables to fill not only main canals but also additional ones in three dimensions, is used for root canal filling.
What is the length of endodontic treatment?
The main factor of endodontic treatment length is tooth condition. Usually, treatment is done in 1 – 2 visits. After finishing treatment, roentgenological and clinical observation for 3 – 4 years (visits every 3 – 6 months) will guarantee the lowest risk of complications.

When a friend of mine told me he had travelled to Kaunas to fix his teeth, I was kind of sceptical about it. His main motivation was that it is way cheaper than in Germany. When I got serious issues with my teeth that my german insurance was not willing to cover and counted me an estimated "infinity" for my procedures i started really thinking about doing the same. So, after a short Email correspondency with the clinics administrator, Ieva, i decided to give it a chance. I got very cheap flights to Vilnius (70 € there and back to Berlin), Getting to Kaunas was just about a 1 h train trip. Very easy and comfortable. I stayed in a lovely hotel. The personell in the PROCESSUS clinic was very friendly, welcoming and helpful.
I found out that german doctors had given me diagnoses that weren't even there to make more money of me.
Dr. Baltrusaitiene showed me exactly what is she about to do and why. With the help of a 3D-X-Ray of my jaw, before she started her work. The procedure was as pleasant and as painless as possible. Afterwards I had gotten clear advices on what i could do and what not. When I saw the price at the end I was positively surprised. It was almost 3 times less than what i would have paid in Germany. Also I feel like a person now. Not living in pain everyday anymore. All in all i can only recommend visiting PROCESSUS.
Competent and friendly personell, the most modern appliances and a fair price is definitely worth travelling europe for your health. 5/5 Stars, Well done!
Ich bin für eine Behandlung aus Deutschland gekommen. Von Anfang bis Ende wurde ich super betreut und bin mit dem Ergebnis rundum zufrieden. Es hat mich viel weniger gekostet als in meinem Heimatland und die Leistung von den Ärzten und Helferinnen bei Processus hat mich wirklich überzeugt. Ich werde es weiterempfehlen!
Jūsų klinikoje man atliko burnos ertmės higieną. Esu be galo dėkinga higienistei Ingridai už malonų bendravimą, išsamų paaiškinimą ir patarimus dantų priežiūros klausimais. Tikrai profesionaliai atliko savo darbą, pagerėjimą pajutau iš karto, dantenos nebekraujuoja. Ačiū!
