The main task of the dentist is to preserve the teeth of the patient. Whether a tooth stays in place or not depends largely on the professionalism of the doctor during canal treatment. It is not enough to simply diagnose pulpitis; it is important to predict and prevent possible complications during treatment. The standard structure of the tooth usually features 1-4 canals. However, people are all different and practice shows that there are often 5 canals, or the canals are mislocated. If the dentist has not noticed the abnormality in time, even after the treatment, the inflammation in the affected canal will continue and the patient will suffer pain without understanding the cause.
At Aesthetic Dental Center, we take into account the individual characteristics of people. Before filling the cleaned tooth, we carefully check any abnormalities using special tools and ultra-precise equipment. We guarantee the success of the procedure performed by the skill of our dentists.
What is pulpitis?
Pulpitis is an inflammation of the pulp, the soft tissue that lies in the tooth cavity. If caries is not treated in time, the infection penetrates this cavity, over time the root canals become inflamed and the process flows into periodontitis. To save the tooth in this case, you should make an appointment with the dentist at the first painful sensations.
Root canal treatment process
With modern methods, pulpitis is mainly treated in one visit. In this case, the patient does not experience painful sensations. The only thing he may feel is an injection of anesthetic.
1. Preparation for the procedure consists of anesthetizing the tooth and isolating it with a latex plate.
2. The dentist removes the tissues affected by caries and the contents of the infected canals. Then, the device's apex locator measures the length of the canal and compares the data obtained with cone-beam tomography.
3. After instrumental treatment, the channels are disinfected with antiseptic solutions and the channels are hermetically sealed.
4. Restoration of the dental crown. For the esthetic part, depending on the situation, a photopolymer material or zirconium inlays are used.
Recommendations after endodontic treatment
After the anesthetic wears off, you may experience discomfort or hypersensitivity at the site of the pulped tooth. This is a normal reaction of the body to filling material. We recommend that you avoid eating hot or cold foods for several days after pulpitis treatment. Try not to chew solid food with a healed tooth for three days. Be sure to maintain good oral hygiene and visit your dentist twice a year for a checkup.
