Pulpitis and periodontitis treatment
Such an unpleasant complication of caries as pulpitis is a common occurrence, because few of us regularly visit the dentist, promptly eliminating progressive caries. As a result, tooth decay reaches its internal tissues, where the neurovascular bundle is located, which causes painful sensations. If you do not consult a doctor at this stage, the infection will cover all the pulp, and the only way out is to remove it. After this procedure, the canals are cleaned and filled, and the tooth loses its nerve. It may seem that there is nothing wrong with this, but the "dead" teeth are much faster destroyed and can darken over time. That is why only a timely regular visit to dentistry will help to maintain healthy teeth for a long time.
If pulpitis is not treated, this will certainly lead to the next stage of complicated caries - inflammation of the tissues near the root of the tooth. Periodontitis is a consequence of the penetration of infection through the channels of the tooth to the apex of its root, where it can provoke the most serious consequences. Treatment of periodontitis begins with an x-ray, which will help determine the location of the inflammation and the degree of damage. After that, the dentist introduces local anesthesia and proceeds to clean the canals. Then the channels are washed with antiseptics, a disinfectant medicine is laid. And only after the final elimination of the inflammatory process, the channels and tooth are filled.
