What is endodontics
Endodontics is a treatment that consists of removing the dental pulp (inner tissue of the tooth) of infected or decayed teeth to then clean and seal the inside of the tooth. to then clean and seal the inside of the tooth. and thus avoid having to replace teeth with dentures and dental implants.
A mature tooth can survive without pulp and nerve, so extracting them will not affect their daily functioning.
In our dental clinic in Barcelona we always try to keep all your pieces so we have a team of specialists in endodontics that will take care of your teeth from the first minute.
The most common causes of damage to the pulp or nerve of the tooth are infections or inflammation of the pulp caused, in most cases, by decay not treated in time, trauma or fractures and wear of the teeth: caused in most cases by bruxism.
It should be taken into account that, when we have a cavity, a root canal can be avoided in the great majority of cases with a filling. If the caries is not treated in time, the infection advances inside the canals and can emerge around the root apices, the tips of the roots, and affect the bone that surrounds them.
In this case, a granulomatous lesion begins to form due to chronic irritation in the bone surrounding the root outlet, which may eventually lead to the formation of a periodontal cyst.
Some of the most common symptoms that may suggest the need for a root canal are:
- Tooth pain or infected teeth
- Tooth blackening
- Prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
- Tooth sensitivity to chewing and touch
- Inflammation of the gums and discoloration
