Dental treatment is necessary in order to preserve the health of the entire organism. A rotten tooth is not only locally painful, but also a problem for the entire digestive tract (chewing food) and our immunity.
Prevention and treatment of teeth
Prevention is the first step we should take. Regular control and going to the dentist is a matter of personal hygiene. If tooth decay already occurs, you should react in time to prevent the spread of bacteria, viruses and inflammation, if any.
An untreated tooth is a source of microorganisms that, through circulation, reach all parts of the body, causing various diseases, the cause of which most often cannot be found.
Inside the tooth are blood and lymph vessels that nourish the tooth, and nerves that give the tooth sensitivity. Deeper decay or injury (fracture) to the tooth can lead to infection of the blood vessels and nerves inside the tooth. In such cases, it is necessary to do the so-called endodontic treatment or dental treatment.
Dental treatment requires a skilled dentist and often requires more than one visit.
Dental treatment includes various procedures and therapies that are applied to preserve the health and functionality of the teeth and gums.
Tooth decay and their treatment:
Preventive Care: Regular oral hygiene, including proper brushing, flossing and mouthwash, is key to preventing oral problems. Regular visits to our office can help detect problems at an early stage.
Before and after treatment:
What is endodontic therapy?
This type of therapy involves a series of steps to gradually solve the problem that caused the decayed tooth.
Examination and diagnosis
Removal of damaged pulp
After the canals are cleaned, they are usually filled with special materials to prevent the infection from spreading again. Antibiotics are sometimes used for the same purpose.
Closing the tooth: After filling the canal, the tooth is closed. In most cases, a temporary filling is placed until the tooth is ready for a permanent filling.
Permanent filling: Later, a permanent filling or crown is placed on the tooth to restore its function and aesthetics. This stage may be delayed to ensure that the infection is completely gone.
The patient had a tooth infection that spread to the bone around the tip of the root, which can be seen in the “before” image as a black circle. The interval between the “after” photos is more than a year, so the success of the treatment and the bone healing around the top of the roots are clearly visible.
