Your teeth are meant to prolong a life. Years ago, diseased or damaged teeth were usually removed. But today, a tooth can often be saved through the treatment of the root canal (endodontic).
Endodontia is the branch of dentistry that deals with the treatment of diseases or damage to the dental pulp.
What if dental pulp is damaged?
Pulp is a soft tissue inside the tooth that contains blood vessels and nerves. When pulp is inflamed or infected, treatment is required. The most common causes of pulmonary inflammation or infection are a cracked tooth, a deep cavity cavity or stuffing, or other serious damage to the tooth. All of these can allow bacteria to enter the pulp.
Why should pulp be removed?
If the damaged or infected pulp is not removed, the tissue around the tooth root can be infected. Pains and swelling often come. Even if there is no pain, the bacteria can damage the bone that holds the tooth in the jaw. Without treatment, the tooth should be removed.
Removing a tooth can create problems
When a tooth is removed and not replaced, the teeth around it may be displaced. This can cause difficulty in chewing and may make it more difficult to clean the teeth. Fields that are not well cleaned are more likely to get gum disease.
Root Canal Treatment can prevent these problems by saving your natural tooth. Also, the treatment of the canal is usually less expensive than a tooth going to be removed and then replaced by one of the substitution modes.
What does the treatment involve?
Root Canal Treatment may include one or more dental visits. Your dentist or endodontist will perform the necessary steps to save your tooth:
First, your tooth is numb that you do not feel pain or discomfort during work. An opening is done through the tooth crown in the pulp room.
The tooth nerve, or pulp, is removed from the pulp chamber and the canal (the space inside the roots). Each channel is cleansed and given the form so that we can have a correct filling.
Your dentist can place medicines in the pulp room and root canal to help remove bacteria.
Channels are usually filled with a rubber material to close them.
A temporary filling is then placed in the tooth to prevent contamination of the root canal. You can get antibiotics if the infection has spread beyond the root of the roots. If your dentist describes the prescription, use it only as instructed. If you have any problems with the medicine, you should contact your dentist.
During the next treatment phase, the dentist removes temporary filling and restores the tooth with a crown or filler to strengthen it and improve the way it looks.
