Optimized Vision in Endodontic Surgeries and Procedures

Case collection by Dr. Gorni illustrating the advantages of a dental microscope in endodontic surgeries and procedures

Microscopes are playing an increasingly important role in endodontic surgery as they enable minimally invasive procedures to be carried out. Endodontists can work with high precision from the first cut to the final suture, thanks to the detailed microscopic view.
In these case videos, Dr. Fabio Gorni illustrates the advantages of micro dentistry and the role of a dental microscope. He explains how, in his experience, the enhanced visualization of fine anatomical details provided by a microscope can help him to:

-Decrease tooth damages and preserve teeth
-Avoid complications during surgery
-Reduce post-operative pain
-Reduce time in the dentists’ chair

According to Dr. Gorni a microscope supports him to carry out individual treatment steps more precisely and carefully which may improve the success of the treatment. He therefore believes that the dental microscope has become indispensable for successful endodontic surgery.

Discover the anatomy

Inspection of the root canal of a lower molar with a microscope to accurately understand anatomical details of the root canal system. Watch this short video to see how Dr. Gorni investigates the anatomy of the molar and finds additional canals using proper visualization.

Cleaning and shaping the root canal system

The most important part of root canal treatment is the careful cleaning. This video, taken at high magnification with the M520 F20 microscope, shows how deeply the ultrasonic irrigation penetrates and cleans the canal.

An invasive cervical resorption

In this case of a second upper molar with ICR, see how important it is to work under high magnification to ensure that all pathological tissue is properly removed to preserve the tooth.

A lower molar retreatment

Removal of existing restorations in a lower molar that needs to be treated because previous treatments were done insufficiently, as parts of the pulp tissue are still present. See the steps Dr. Gorni performs to successfully conclude the treatment.

Broken file removal

In this video you can see how Dr. Gorni precisely removes broken file fragments with an ultrasonic tip. This is a major challenge, especially in the lower root canal area - but in this case it was no problem thanks to microscopic visualization.

Disassembling in a retreatment case

This video demonstrates retreatment and gutta-percha removal used in endodontic dentistry. The improved view with the microscope allows thorough control of the instruments within the dentine walls.

Microsurgery: Endodontic flap

An accurate surgical incision and flap design are key to any endodontic surgery. In this short video, you will see how Dr. Gorni uses microscope visualization to achieve this.

Sinus lift

The use of a microscope is beneficial for many dental procedures, but especially complex endodontic surgeries. In this video of a sinus lift, you can see how Dr. Gorni benefits from improved visualization when working on the delicate and thin Sneider membrane.

Discovering the anatomy during micro endodontic surgery

During endodontic procedures, such as retrograde root canal treatment, the dental microscope provides the necessary light and magnification to enable the endodontist to better see and treat the areas in question. See in this video how the microscope view reveals lateral canals and extra exit portals.
