ENDODONTICS – ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Also known as root canal treatment is a dentistry branch that treats the diseases caused to tooth root canal interior – tooth pulp, or rather, the nerve.
The most common cause of this disease is the deep cavity when the bacteria directly affects the tooth pulp. A frequent cause may also be trauma, blow, dental materials or composite filling with no foundation, bruxism as well as repeated tooth trauma. In these cases, endodontics aka tooth root treatment is necessary, so as to remove the cause of the disease, i. e. bacteria.
ENDODONTICS AND PULPITIS
When bacteria and toxins penetrate the chamber of the tooth nerve, we encounter the first phase of inflammation, so-called pulpitis. The first symptom of this is sensitivity to warm and cold, sweet and severe pain may occur later. Pain causes the selling of the pulp which is a biological response to bacteria. This is when the pulp, trapped in the tooth walls causes pressure and pain.
WHAT IS AN ENDODONTIC TREATMENT?
Treatment of the root canal is in essence an endodontic treatment. Endodontics deals with procedures of infected or traumatized pulp removal, all with the aim to preserve the tooth and its function. This entails root canal treatment. There are two methods of root canal treatment – manual and machine. The best results are achieved with the combination of these two methods, and the most important thing is to remove the cause of the infection.
If the cause of the inflammation is not repaired and infection is not cleaned, this can cause gangrene and complete nerve death.
Symptoms associated with tooth gangrene are the following:
Pain when the tooth is pressed onto,
Altered general body condition – temperature, fever.
Untreated gangrene is spread onto the periapex area, or rather the part around the tooth root top. In most cases, the toot is then sensitive to tapping and touching in the area surrounding the tooth root top. However, in these situations, we can also successfully treat the tooth conservatively, without any surgery involved.
ENDODONTICS – TOOTH NERVE REMOVAL AND PAIN
We make the procedure of nerve removal completely painless and very precise. By following the world standards we use cutting edge equipment – apex locators, endo motors, machine wideners ProTaper Next and ProTaper Gold.
When root canals are worked on, infection removed, with abundant canal irrigation, the root canal is filled with gutta-percha points and sealers (AH plus).
It is important to mention that endodontically treated teeth can be in function for a very long time and be a good foundation for a composite filling or a dental prosthetic piece.
Should you feel sensitivity or pain when eating or drinking – call us and react on time. Prevention is key!
