Treatment of Tooth Canals
The main reasons for the destruction of pulp are the following:
— Penetration of bacteria from a deep carious cavity;
— Damage to the tooth due to injury;
— Gum disease.
For effective treatment it is necessary to remove unhealthy pulp. In what cases should this procedure be carried out.
- Bacteria cause inflammation of the tooth — pulpitis, if the caries reaches its cavity. You can be disturbed by tedious, drawing pains during the reception of cold or hot food, at the temperature changes of changeable weather.
- Pulpitis can develop without the presence of unpleasant feelings. But if you experience a sharp throbbing pain, if the tooth reacts to temperature stimuli, this is one of the signals that the pulp is inflamed.
- Untimely treatment of pulpitis contributes to the fact that the infection will pass into the circumcircular tissues, cause them an inflammatory process — periodontitis.
- Sometimes periodontitis causes only minor unpleasant feelings in the area of a diseased tooth. You note a change in the color of the crown or the periodic appearance of a fistula with a purulent discharge on the gum.
