The dental pulp or so-called “nerve” is the part of the tooth that often creates us problems during life. From a simple tooth decay untreated in time, it gets advanced so much that it infects the dental pulp (nerve).
Tooth pulp infection (regardless of the degree) causes toothaches, often unbearable.
In this case, the dentist is forced to remove the infected pulp tissue from the tooth (and from its root).
Often, because tooth pulp infection was big are necessary several treatment sessions with anti-inflammatory or antibiotics (placed in the root canal).
The tooth pulp removal is done as follows:
- Local anesthesia;
- Altered dentine cleansing (caries);
- An opening into the pulp chamber is created;
- With endodontic needles is removed the pulp tissue (nerve) of the canal/canals;
- Afterwards root canal filling is done (root filling with materials for this procedure).
Root canal treatment can be as follows:
1. Root Canal Filling trough classical method
– Root canal filling trough classical method is based on ‘’sealing’’ the root canal with a gutta-percha cone and canal paste.
2. Root canal filling in 3D modern method
– Modern root canal is performed by condensation and injection of the gutta-percha therefore achieving a three -dimensional seal.
