Endodontics in Quito – What Does it Solve?

Endodontics is the mother specialty of Conservative Dentistry because it is the one that has become the most technified to preserve teeth into our mouth.

Its objective is: to save teeth, trying to keep it in the mouth as long as possible.

For endodontic treatment in Quito, you have the Asiri Dental Care Center in Quito.

Below we detail the main problems that this specialty addresses:

Severe Dental Pain

When the decay progresses and reaches the pulp (nerve) of the tooth, as a result, the death of the nerve or dental pulp occurs. This process is called pulp necrosis.

This process generates intense throbbing pain that practically does not subside and can be intensified by the heat or cold of meals.

Once the nerve of the tooth is dead (pulp necrosis), the dental pulp begins to decompose and this putrefaction gives way to internal infection of the tooth and its surroundings.

This infection forms an abscess that often becomes visible in the gum area with the expulsion of pus, as well as the presence of inflammation, pain, fever and even loss of bone tissue.

If you present these symptoms that may aim the need of a root canal treatment, your trusted endodontist will carry out a set of tests that will suggest the state of the pulp or dental nerve of your affected tooth.

In any of these stages and in order to save the tooth, it is necessary to perform a Root Canal Treatment in Quito, you can do it at your trusted dental clinic.

This endodontic treatment consists of removing the affected nerve, carefully cleaning the canals and filling them with a special material that seals the root so that microbes that can cause infections do not enter its interior.

More details about this treatment can be found in our article: Root Canal Treatment and its price in Quito

Correction of Failed Root Canals

Sometimes a root canal treatment can fail, consequently it is necessary to perform it again, removing all the material previously placed, correcting the failure and sealing the roots of the teeth again.

This treatment, better known as endodontic retreatment, is the restoration of a failed root canal treatment, consequently managing to keep the tooth in the mouth for longer.

The causes of the failure of the initial root canal treatment are diverse and mainly directed towards inadequate techniques that allow the re-infection of the interior of the teeth.

You can get more details in our article dedicated to root canal retreatments or Re-endodontics

Dental Root Holes Repair

Sometimes you can get perforations in the roots of the teeth that can be caused by resorption (loss of tissue) or also by the same instruments used in a root canal treatment that can penetrate and make a hole inside the tooth.

In these cases, a repair can be made with special cements and it can be done from the inside of the tooth or from the outside through surgery.

Roots With Open Ends

The apicoformation or apexification ensures the closure of the apex, through the application of special materials that promote this closure.

Normally, several sessions are required to achieve the stated objective.

Nerve or Dental Pulp at Risk of Being Affected by Cavities.

This procedure seeks to extend the life of the pulp by placing special materials inside the tooth where the pulp is in danger of being damaged.

These special materials promote the formation of dentin on the pulp for natural protection.

If this is achieved, you can count on long-lasting protection that delays the degeneration process that would lead to the need for root canal treatment.

Endodontics in Children

Many times and for lack of good dental prevention, our children suffer from advanced caries that affect their temporary or milk teeth to make them not vital.

In these cases there are two endodontic procedures that are performed:


It is used in cases of temporary teeth with exposed pulp due to very deep caries or trauma, being the state of the pulp normal or with reversible pulpitis.

In the treatment part of the affected pulp is eliminated by placing a material together with the remaining pulp that remains vital.

Then proceed to obturar to reconstruct the affected tooth


Applies when the tooth shows a level of chronic inflammation or necrosis in the root pulp.

Then proceed to remove 2/3 of the pulp or nerve of the temporal tooth, but the root should be kept at least 2/3 of the normal length.

Later it is filled with a material that is reabsorbed, and reconstruction is carried out.

How is it Determined if Pulpotomy or Pulpectomy Should be Done?

By means of a Periapical radiograph of the affected part, it is determined how much the roots have been affected

    Sorry for the long story, but it was an interesting one.I had a root canal preemptively redone in the … More US on January 23 to avoid issues during an upcoming long trip through South America. The procedure did not help me much as I started feeling pain around this tooth after a couple of weeks. Later, while in Quito, as the pain became worse, I went to a recommended dentist office who told me to extract 2 molars as soon as possible and come back to Ecuador to install 2 implants in 6 & 10 months. I was of course not thrilled to lose 2 teeth and pay for the expensive treatment!I then searched for another dentist office in Quito (with English speaking personal) for a second opinion. I found ASIRI where two of their dentists, with different specialties, looked at the tomography and found the 2 teeth to be OK! Then their periodontist looked at the alignment of the teeth. He corrected the height of one of the crowns and told me that I was grinding my teeth at night. The cause of the pain was probably a misalignment of the teeth that would put pressure on the nerves. The periodontist also did a deep cleaning and suggested wearing a mouth-guard at night to relieve the pressure on the nerves. After the mouth-guard was installed, the pain started subsiding slowly and now, 6 weeks later, I nearly don’t feel the pain anymore.Thanks to the great team at ASIRI for diagnosing and fixing the cause of the pain and saving my teeth! Thanks also for accommodating my tight schedule and finishing the treatment before I left Ecuador. I really enjoyed the interaction with everybody at their office and I would recommend ASIRI without hesitation. They put the dental health and interests of their customers above all.Many thanks, Christian
