N2 Now The Preferred Root Canal Treatment 

in Sweden


Four Swedish dentists, Drs. Niels Norsell, B. Cederbloom and Stefen and Bengt Nordstrom, have succeeded in having the Swedish Board of Welfare reverse their ban on the use of N2 Root Canal Sealer in Sweden.

For years the endodontic specialists have used their influence in only allowing conventional root canal sealers to be used in Sweden.  


The Swedish Board of Welfare have now enough evidence to show that conventional root canal has high failure rates, but has cost the Board of Welfare large sums of money to pay for these root canal treatments, which have resulted in wasted money and large numbers of tooth extractions.  


Evidence has now been accepted, that using N2 treatments is more successful in root canal treatments, but would have resulted in a higher success rate, less health risks and at less cost to the Board.

Root Canal Treatment for Everybody

In most European countries, the general practitioner in the daily routine has to deal with a root canal problem. Treatment is time-consuming and difficult. Out of this reason, a special dentist group has developed in certain high-class and rich markets, that is the endodontists specialized in treating the root canals with special knowledge and good success. The only problems are the high price, which is needed, and the fact that social security ensured people cannot pay for this treatment. For this reason, general practitioners in most European markets use a fast and easy treatment by quick cleaning of the canal followed by filling with a spiral drill (lenrulo) with a root canal cement, or better called root canal sealer, by the name of N2. N2 contains a very low rate of formalaldehyde, not more than you'd find in a large glass of milk. Unluckily, over the years decisions were made in certain markets to ban this product and take the possibility away from general practitioners to treat the public with this procedure having been used throughout Europe for over 50 years.

This did not matter to people who are able to pay for the endodontist treatment. The fast N2 technique used by 10,000 dentists was excluded in certain markets, e.g. in Sweden, partially in Poland and possibly in other markets. Now the decisive government agencies have recognized this problem and have officially reinstated the N2 technique with an official announcement in the Swedish Dental Journal.

We think that with this move the state will save a lot of expenses because instead of extracting the root canal infected tooth, the general practitioner will start trying to save this tooth to avoid any high-price crown and bridge work in the future.
