The Process of Endodontic Treatment

When you say endodontic treatment, it means treating the inside of your natural tooth. Let’s start with the basic anatomy of your teeth. Inside the white enamel of your tooth as well as the hard layer called “dentin”, is the soft tissue known as the “pulp”. This pulp contains nerves, blood vessels and the connective tissue which develops hard tissues that surrounds the teeth during development. The pulp proliferates starting from the crown of the tooth towards the tip of its roots. Once the teeth reach maturity, it can now sustain its continuance without the pulp with the aid of the tissues surrounding the teeth.

The whole point of the procedure is to efficiently remove the infected or inflamed pulp which can be mainly caused by repeated dental procedures, a very deep decay or sometimes a chip or a crack on the tooth which is already causing a fuss to the patient. Pulps inflammations or infections can lead to pain and abscess, which is another reason why an endodontic treatment is always substantial.

Upon removal of the infected pulp, the inside of the tooth is then cleaned carefully and shaped properly, then filled and sealed cautiously by the endodontist specialist. You will then be instructed to come back after several days to be installed a crown for your tooth as well as other restoration on your tooth to bring it back to its optimal functioning.

So is it possible to have all your teeth treated endodontically? The answer is… Approximately, most of it can be saved; it sometimes cannot be applicable for teeth which have root canals that cannot be accessed, a severely fractured root, and a tooth with no capable bone support.
