Endodontic Treatment

What is Endodontic Treatment?

The dental procedure known as endodontics, or root canal therapy, is used to treat infections in the tooth’s pulp.

Understanding the internal structure of the tooth can assist in understanding how endodontic treatment works. The pulp is the soft tissue found inside the tooth, located underneath the hard dentin layer and the white enamel. The pulp joins the surrounding tissues at the very tip of the roots, which is where it reaches from the tooth’s crown.
Root canal therapy is a painless procedure that can preserve a tooth which might otherwise require extraction.

After carefully cleaning and shaping the inner part of a root canal and extracting any inflamed or diseased pulp, the endodontist fills and plugs the opening. You will then go back to the dentist, who will repair the tooth with a crown to protect it and give it back its full function. The tooth functions just like a normal tooth after restoration.

What are the Different Types of Endodontic Treatment?

  1. Root canal therapy :

    Nowadays, the most common endodontic treatment carried out is root canal therapy. Patients with infected teeth pulp, a procedure is required to remove the infection and restore the tooth’s normal function. The endodontist will cut a tiny hole in the patient’s tooth and eliminate all the inside infected pulp after administering a localized anesthetic. The root canal process will subsequently be finished by cleaning the tooth, filling it with a unique dental material, and sealing it.

  2. Apicoectomy :

    Another common endodontic procedure these days is the apicoectomy, which is a treatment option for individuals whose tooth issues cannot be resolved with root canal therapy. An expert endodontist is needed for the process to remove the topmost portion of a tooth’s root and seal the tooth afterwards for protection.

  3. Cracked teeth treatment :

    A patient’s cracked tooth will be classified into one of many categories, and an endodontist will choose the appropriate course of treatment based on which category the cracked tooth belongs to. Cracked teeth can be classified as split teeth, fractured cusps, vertical root fractures, craze lines, and true cracks in teeth. If treatment is not received for any of these kinds of cracks, the tooth might break off. Endodontic surgery, crown therapy, extractions, and fillings are among the available treatments for broken teeth.

How Can Postoperative Pain and Discomfort be Managed?

Your tooth might be sensitive in the early days following treatment, particularly if there was discomfort or an infection before to the operation. Prescribed drugs can help ease this discomfort. Pay close attention to your endodontist’s instructions.

After the endodontic treatment is finished, your tooth can feel a little bit different from the other teeth few days.

What Should I Expect During and After Endodontic Treatment?

Your tongue and gums may remain numb for up to an hour after the anesthetic wears off. While that’s happening, some individuals prefer to relax at home, and others elect to carry on with their regular activities.

Following a root canal, be careful to stick to all of your endodontist’s recommendations. These often include brushing twice a day, avoiding foods, and taking extreme caution around the region where the root canal was performed.

In order for the dentist to prepare your tooth to the dental crown and then install it on your tooth, you will usually need two more appointments.
