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.

Endodontics: Endodontics refers to the treatment of the inside of the tooth, such as the pulp and root. When the pulp (the inside of the tooth) is infected or damaged, endodontic treatment, known as a root canal, may be necessary. During this procedure, the dentist removes the damaged pulp, cleans the canals and closes them to prevent further infections.
Extraction: In some cases, a tooth that has suffered serious damage or infection may need to be extracted. This procedure is called tooth extraction.

Before and after treatment:

What is endodontic therapy?

Endodontic therapy is a dental procedure that is applied when the inner part of the tooth (pulp) is infected, damaged or inflamed. This therapy aims to preserve the teeth and prevent the spread of infection.
This type of therapy involves a series of steps to gradually solve the problem that caused the decayed tooth.

Examination and diagnosis

The first step is the review. Based on the x-ray and clinical examination, we will make a diagnosis and decide whether endodontic therapy is necessary.

Local anesthesia

Before starting the therapy, the tooth will be anesthetized to ensure complete painlessness during the procedure. Often, dental procedures have atypical names that to many people do not resemble a painful procedure or a long and uncomfortable sitting. This type of therapy is performed under anesthesia and is completely painless. As a result of all these processes and procedures, you have healthy teeth, you are free from pain and discomfort.

Removal of damaged pulp

Making a small hole in the tooth to access the inside is necessary to get to the root of the problem. Then we carefully remove the damaged or infected pulp and clean the canals.

Channel filling

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.
