Causes of pulpitis.

лікування пульпітуThe first reason that causes pulpitis is, of course, caries (you will find out about caries and how to deal with it in this article - believe me, something can be a discovery for you).

The next reason for pulpitis (rarely) is the inadequate flushing of the etching gel when restoring the teeth with composite materials.

In the preparation of hard tissues of the tooth without water cooling there is an overheat of the pulp, resulting in a pulp inflammation. You do not need to be a physician to understand it.

Complaints of the patient - the symptoms of pulpitis

As soon as the patient enters the clinics and says: "Doctor, It hurt! This pain prevents me from living, sleeping, eating and drinking! Doctor, help me!"

It is then that the dentist will suspect that you have an inflammation of vessel - nerve bundle (pulpitis). The symptoms of pulpitis are clear, it's simply not possible not to pay attention to them! This is a sharp, severe pain that becomes stronger in the evening or at night, and you can feel that you suffer from dental pain even while sleeping.

The tooth reacts to cold and warm, and sometimes to loud sounds. The pain may dull for a while and then come back again. Remember, the only way to diagnose and properly treat pulpitis is to make an appointment with a dentist. The specialist will determine the pulp, both visually and with the help of X-rays. Both methods are most commonly used, since it is possible to confuse pulpitis with diseases that have similar symptoms (e.g. periodontitis).

Methods of treating pulpitis

Everything depends on the stage of the disease. Pulpitis is treated by conservative (biological) or surgical methods. The biological (conservative) method of treating pulpitis is used when the tooth deficiency is not serious when it is possible to preserve a portion of the pulp. In this method, the affected tissues are removed and the affected areas are treated with special means with anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects. The most common and most reliable method of treating pulpitis is the surgical method. It is used when preserving of a tooth pulp is no longer possible. The surgical method is based on the removal of the entire pulp, and then the canals of the tooth are filled. This procedure is quite long. What method of treating pulpitis to choose will be decided by the doctor after the diagnostics. "Oleksiuk" dental clinics always aspires to preserve living teeth for longer, therefore the biological method is better. The saddest thing here is that this method works effectively only at the very beginning of the disease (when the pain lasts no more than 2 days). Patients contact a dentist when pulpitis has already started. Remember - the sooner you come to a dentist with a sick tooth, the greater the likelihood that it can be saved alive. Complications with pulpitis treatment. Untreated pulpitis can have serious complications. Inflammation in the ligaments of the tooth (periodontal) begins, which can cause periodontitis or complete loss of the tooth. Sometimes complications arise in connection with poor-quality treatment of the tooth (wrong filling of canals of the tooth). Therefore, after the procedure of filling the tooth canals, be sure to take an X-ray. It will help the dentist to make sure that the treatment was qualitative. In most cases, people do not go to the clinic because of fear of pain. "Oleksiuk" dental clinics use only qualitative anesthesia, therefore the procedure is done absolutely painlessly. The only thing that remains unpleasant is an injection into the gum for pain relief. But in comparison with pain in pulpitis - it's just a bad moment.
