Endodontics

ENDODONTICS

Endodontics is a dental speciality related to the study and treatment of the dental pulp containing nerves, arterioles, venules, lymphatic tissue, and fibrous tissue.

Endodontists perform procedures that include endodontic therapy also known as root canal therapy and are one of the most common procedures.

They also perform endodontics re-treatment, surgery, treatment of cracked teeth and dental trauma.

If the dental pulp becomes diseased or injured, endodontic treatment is required to save the tooth.

                                                                         Root Canal treatment involves the following process:

An opening is made through the back of a front tooth or the crown of a molar or premolar – Access opening.

The diseased pulp is removed and the pulp chamber and root canals are cleaned, enlarged and shaped in preparation for being filled BMP or BIO MECHANICAL PREPARATION.

If necessary a temporary filling is placed in the crown opening to protect the tooth between dental visits.

The temporary filling is removed and the root canals are permanently filled.

A tapered, rubbery material called gutta-percha is inserted into each of the canals and is often sealed into place with cement OBTURATION.

At the end a cap is preferably placed over the tooth to restore its natural shape and appearance CROWN.

MAINTAINING YOUR NEW CROWN

It is necessary to care for your crown just as you would natural teeth. Daily brushing and flossing will help to keep the teeth, gums, and new crown free from the bacteria that can cause gum disease. Avoid chewing on hard foods such as ice or pistachios, which can cause crowns to crack or break over time. Given proper care, crowns can last several decades, and may last a lifetime.
