If a tooth’s decay has spread to the pulp (inner layer of your tooth), you may require root canal treatment. This procedure eliminates nerve tissue, infection and bacteria from your tooth.
To make the procedure painless, your dentist will numb both the tooth and its surrounding gums with local anesthesia. After extracting any decay, they’ll clean and shape your tooth so it’s ready for a filling.
Microscopic Root Canal Treatment
Floss Dental offers Microscopic Root Canal Treatment, a groundbreaking procedure in root canal treatment that removes infected pulp tissue from your tooth, preventing an infection from spreading and saving your tooth.
Your tooth will be numbed to reduce pain and discomfort during the procedure. Your dentist then places a rubber dam around the tooth to isolate it from saliva and other bacteria.
Next, your dentist will use a special dental tool to gain access to the inside of your tooth. This allows them to carefully examine its pulp tissue – composed of blood vessels and nerves – as well as check for signs of infection elsewhere in the mouth.
Infection of the tooth’s pulp can occur for various reasons, including deep cavities, chipped or cracked teeth or any openings in its protective enamel coating. If left untreated, this area of infection and inflammation will spread throughout your tooth causing intense discomfort.
Root canal treatment can be incredibly painful, so it’s essential to seek expert assistance right away. Neglecting to do so could result in a serious dental abscess that affects your overall wellbeing and may even lead to other systemic issues like heart disease.
Your dentist will first numb the area with local anesthesia before using a drill to access inside of your tooth, using specialized dental tools to remove any decay and clean out infected pulp.
Once the infected pulp has been extracted, your dentist will sterilize and fill the empty space with a biocompatible and inert dental material. Finally, they’ll place a crown over your tooth to further protect it and prevent further damage.
Microscopy during a root canal treatment allows your dentist to view all the delicate areas of your tooth, making it simpler for them to complete the procedure correctly and safely. Furthermore, having access to a microscope helps them avoid mistakes that could arise with traditional root canal treatments.
Microscopic root canal treatment is more cost-effective than traditional procedures and may help save your tooth if it’s infected. However, it should be noted that this technique can only be used on certain types of teeth and requires multiple visits to the dentist before being successful.
Endodontic treatment is a procedure that involves the extraction of the pulp and surrounding tissues inside a tooth to save it from decay or infection, or treat dental trauma.
An endodontist, a specialist in endodontics (the branch of dentistry that treats teeth’s inner tissues and pulp), performs this procedure. They may perform root canal treatment or an apicoectomy to restore a tooth’s health and function.
Your dentist will first anesthetize you and create an opening in your crown to access the root of the tooth. Once this is done, they’ll extract any infected pulp as well as clean and enlarge any canals inside of it. Finally, they’ll fill this space with biocompatible rubber like material known as gutta-percha.
When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected or inflamed, it can cause intense pain, swelling and inflammation around the affected tooth as well as spreading to nearby gums and jawbone.
If the issue is not addressed promptly, it could develop into a severe bacterial infection. Depending on its severity, this infection could cause irreparable damage to nearby tissue and bone and may require surgical removal for remediation.
Many people dread getting a root canal, but it doesn’t have to be as painful as you might think. The anaesthetic used is designed for maximum comfort during the procedure.
Once anesthetized, an endodontist will carefully extract any infected pulp and clean out the root canals to prepare them for filling. They then fill these canals with a special filling that prevents bacteria from returning to your tooth.
Following your endodontic appointment, it is necessary to schedule a follow-up visit so they can inspect the tooth and confirm its healing process. It’s essential to return for these checkups periodically until all signs of infection have gone away.
The endodontist will take X-rays of your tooth and its surrounding area, then examine its structure under a microscope. They then recommend a treatment plan tailored to meet both your individual needs and the health of your tooth.
Teeth whitening is one of the most sought-after cosmetic dentistry treatments, as it brightens tooth color without damaging its surface. It’s an efficient and fast way to make your smile brighter, whiter, and more attractive.
A qualified dentist will use a whitening product with a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide to remove stains and discolorations from teeth’s enamel. This process, known as bleaching, typically produces an even shade change in tooth color.
In addition to staining, tooth whitening can also help improve the appearance of chips and cracks in teeth. This is because crystalline enamel naturally develops millions of micro-cracks over time as well as spaces between them that accumulate stains and debris.
During the whitening process, your dentist will apply a solution to the surface of your teeth with either a mouthpiece tray or gel. This activates the whitening agent which causes molecules in the tooth to absorb more or less light depending on which direction they face. The end result is typically a lighter shade and this process lasts up to three months.
Some people may experience temporary tooth sensitivity during the whitening process. This condition is most common during the early stages of treatment and usually resolves on its own after one to two days.
Another possible side effect of teeth whitening is mild irritation to your soft tissues, particularly your gums. This is usually due to an inadequately fitting mouthpiece tray and may last for as little as 24 hours after treatment.
The whitening process can be achieved using various products, such as whitening strips and gels that contain hydrogen peroxide to break up stains. These are applied directly onto teeth twice daily for several weeks at a time.
Floss Dental offers a selection of cost-effective and effective dental treatments such as Root Canal Treatment in Noida. Their laser technology allows them to perform gum surgery and tooth whitening procedures without causing discomfort.
During this procedure, a dentist creates an opening in the damaged tooth and cleans out infected pulp to eliminate bacteria. This is an essential step in treating severe tooth decay and infection.
The dentist then fills the tooth with a rubbery substance to reduce swelling and infection. Finally, they cover it with a crown and secure it against further damage caused by bacteria or injury.
Root canals may be necessary for several reasons. One of the most frequent is tooth decay or other dental health issues that expose the pulp to high levels of acid. Fractures or discolorations after eruption are other potential indications for needing a root canal.
If someone’s teeth have been lost due to an accident or illness, dental implants are the perfect solution for restoring their smile. Not only that, but they may also improve speech and function as well.
Implants are created to replicate the look and feel of natural teeth, offering a secure foundation for replacement teeth. Plus, these implants have been engineered to bond with bone for strength and durability – an ideal combination!
Before beginning implant surgery, your dentist takes oral radiographs and photos of your smile to pinpoint the ideal placement for placement. Based on these findings, they will then decide on which type of implant to insert.
For patients with limited jawbone volume, the dentist may suggest a subperiosteal implant. These are placed over the jawbone without requiring metal incisions like endosteal implants do.
Once implants are implanted, the dentist must wait a few months for them to fuse with bone. This process is known as osseointegration and it’s essential that dentists schedule follow-up visits in order to monitor healing progress during this healing period.
Dental implants can last a lifetime when properly cared for and maintained. Just like natural teeth, they require the same level of daily oral hygiene. Regular visits to your dental surgeon for maintenance and checkups are essential as well. Furthermore, you should adjust your bite in order to reduce stress on the implants so they don’t sustain too much pressure when biting or chewing.
