Steps of root canal treatment
Although root canal treatments are sometimes feared by patients, they are not painful. You can rely on the expertise, empathy and experience of our root canal experts like Dr Mosahebi and our founder, Prof Christian Mehl.
Step-by-step root canal process
Root canal for nervous patients
Patients who are particularly worried about root canal treatment can undergo this dental treatment under light or deep sedation if they would prefer not to experience the entire dental procedure under just local anaesthesia.
Root canal treatment is often a long procedure and as such many patients dread having to spend too much time sat in a chair. To help avert boredom and help distract you during the root canal procedure, we provide video glasses so you can relax and watch a film or television show of your choice.

An example of a root canal treatment in pictures
When a tooth nerve dies due to trauma (decay, impact, grinding, etc.), inflammation occurs at the root tip of the tooth, which can have an impact on overall health. It is then important to clean the tooth and disinfect the root canals all the way to the tip. Here you can see a four-canal lower posterior tooth with cleaned canals.
The cleaned canals are sealed with a cement and rubber-like pins.
The tooth is then given a filling to stabilise it again. To achieve long-term stability, restoring the tooth with an all-ceramic partial crown or crown is suitable.
Here is the exemplary X-ray image of a root canal-filled tooth. The rubber tips ideally reach the end of the tooth root.
