Pulpitis is diagnosed if the inflammatory process has affected the sensitive part of the tooth, pulp. In the canals of the tooth, surrounding tissues and nerves become inflamed, which leads to pain.
The cause of the inflammatory process is caries, which has not been cured before, or the repeated inflammation that occurs after treatment.
Pulpitis is characterized by pain. It can be constant, or it can appear after mechanical or temperature exposure. The treatment of this process consists in the removal of inflamed and affected tooth tissues from the canals and their filling.
Another reason for removing nerves is periodontitis. It is an inflammatory process that affects the upper part of the roots of the tooth. Periodontitis is manifested by sharp pain that occurs without any reason.
It is necessary to clean the tooth canals and, if necessary, prosthetics. A crown or other methods of restoring a damaged tooth require the removal of pulp tissues and their thorough filling. Unfortunately, modern dentistry is not in all cases capable of preserving the native tooth. With severe periodontal damage, with severe destruction or vertical fracture, canal treatment is not advisable.
A typical treatment regimen involves cleaning the canals, expanding and forming the dental canals, and then filling. After removing the inflamed tissue, the canals are filled with medicine, and then the doctor will fill them.
After that, the dentist carries out tooth restoration with the help of modern filling materials. If you have a toothache or suspicion of a problem with a tooth, immediately contact our professional specialists!
