Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR REMOVING PULP FROM A TOOTH
(FR) APPAREIL POUR ENLEVER LA PULPE D'UNE DENT
Abstract
(EN)
During root canal procedures, pulp may be removed from a tooth without disturbing the dentin by directing pulses of a heated liquid onto the pulp at particular temperatures and pressures to liquefy or gellify the pulp. The liquefied or gellifϊed material is then aspirated away using the methods and apparatuses described herein. In some embodiments the heated liquid also functions to kill bacteria that may be present within the tooth.
(FR)
Selon la présente invention, pendant des procédures sur le canal radiculaire, la pulpe peut être enlevée d'une dent sans perturber la dentine en dirigeant des impulsions d'un liquide chauffé sur la pulpe à des températures et à des pressions particulières afin de liquéfier ou gélifier la pulpe. Le matériau liquéfié ou gélifié est ensuite aspiré en utilisant les procédés et appareils présentement décrits. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le liquide chauffé fonctionne également pour tuer les bactéries qui peuvent être présentes dans la dent.
