Endodonzia in Albania

What is endodontics?

Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that encompasses the practice of the basic and clinical sciences of normal dental pulp. It also studies the etiology, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases as well as injuries of the dental pulp along with associated periradicular conditions. Did you know that “Endo” is the Greek word for “inside” and “odont” is Greek for “tooth” ? That’s because it treats the soft pulp tissue inside the tooth.

As we all know, a severe toothache can take over your life. Endodontics is here to help as it involves either preserving part, or all of the dental pulp in health. In irreversible disease all of the pulp will be removed such as teeth with irreversibly inflamed and infected pulpal tissue. So endodontics involves treatment when a dental pulp is present, but it also preserves teeth which have failed to respond to non-surgical endodontic treatment, or for teeth that have developed new lesions (for example when root canal re-treatment is required, or periradicular surgery). Simply said, it performs procedures to relieve pain while saving your natural tooth.

How does an endodontist test a tooth?

The endodontist will need to run a few endodontic diagnostic tests before receiving a root canal or other endodontic treatment. We will mention some of the most common types of endodontic diagnostic tests you can expect to experience at your ClassDent visit.

Without further ado let’s get started.

Visual Examination

First, ClassDent endodontists will conduct a visual exam to look for signs of infection, awkward bite, facial asymmetry, or other symptoms. Of course, this is not our main source of diagnostic information, but there are some clues a trained eye like ours can quickly recognize. Talking with you about your symptoms, where and when you experience pain, and other aspects of your overall health and history helps a lot too.  We treat you as a whole person because we know that what goes on in your whole body impacts what’s happening in your mouth, and vice versa. 

When we ask questions please be sure to always give your honest answers in the moment rather than over-rehearsing answers. Remember that by getting to know you, we can better treat you.


Imaging is essential it allows us to see better what is going on inside your tooth.  The root canal system is so exquisitely tiny and that’s why we rely on imaging to enlarge the area and make it easier for us to see those minuscule details.

At ClassDent,  we use tools that give us a “clear picture” and serve as a map to your best treatment,  including:

  1. Digital radiography which is an advanced non-film system. It produces 90% less radiation than low-dose dental x-rays helping us understand what’s going on inside your teeth and mouth. This way we can design a treatment plan that can resolve your concerns.
  2. Another specialized imaging system is Cone Beam 3D technology. It provides three-dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone, all within a single scan.

Vital Pulp Testing

Endodontists use a series of tests to evaluate the vitality of a patient’s dental pulp. Tests assess the reaction of the pulp to temperatures (cold or hot), and how it responds to an electric test and cavity tests.

Conducting thermal tests on the cervical aspect of the tooth helps to get more feedback too. This is the location with the thinnest enamel, so it is closest to the pulp. ClassDent endodontist will be looking for feedback from you on the intensity, duration, and immediacy of the response.

Perriapical Tests

ClassDent endodontist may perform periapical tests to help locate the offending tooth, and also learn how far the infection has progressed.  We all know that information is power, especially when it comes to diagnosis! Sometimes, many patients have difficulty describing exactly where the pain comes from. However, the periodontal ligament does have proprioceptors, so once the issue has spread to the ligament, it is easier to identify the source through percussion and palpation tests. Percussion tests might be performed by using a gloved finger, a “Tooth Slooth,” or another plastic instrument. Of course, the test will be as gentle as possible. Feel free to contact us to be able to ask our endodontist about which specific tests you may need and what you can expect.
