Our teeth have their own circulation, metabolism, and even nerve fibers.
The tooth is protected from the outside by the enamel, followed by the dentine layer, below which the pulp is located, which connective tissue contains blood vessels and nerves. This is the place where your metabolism and circulation are taking place. Due to deep dents, bumps, large fillings, or crown breaks, these vessels and nerves may become inflammable, which is called a dental infection. In such cases, rooting is required. Root treatment is one of the most effective tooth preservation procedures that can be used to prevent the loss of complaints without tearing and that it will work aesthetically and functionally in the future.
The core of the root treatment is to remove the dental pulp and the nerves from the root canal, cleaning it mechanically and chemically, and finally closing the channels with root filling.
Most typical symptoms:
- sensitivity to cold, warmth,
- crunchiness sensitivity during eating,
- greyish / brownish tooth decay,
- a pungent little lump on the gums.
Steps for Root Canal Treatment:
- First, we create an access hole through which we can easily access the root canals.
- After the root canals are found, the pulp is removed by hand or by machine tools.
- The length of the root canals is determined by means of a special electric measuring device, then expanded and cleaned up in ever-increasing dimensions.
- We rdy the disinfected channels with paper fibers.
- After drying, the final root sealing follows, which prevents the formation of further infections and allows the tooth to continue to function. We use gutta-percha material for root sealing.
- As a final step, after root filling, the tooth crown is restored.
After 1-2 days of the Root Canal Treatment, we can feel pain, but leter it will completely go away.
