Three tips to ensure root canal treatment ​

Three tips to ensure root canal treatment

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a method of treating pulp disease and periapical disease. It clears the pulp cavity and sources of irritation in the root canal, including infected or inflamed pulp and infected dentin. , bacteria and their metabolites, etc., and use root canal filling materials to seal the root canals tightly to achieve the purpose of preventing infection, treating pulp disease, preventing the occurrence of periapical lesions or promoting the healing of periapical lesions.

Many people may not know that teeth, which appear to be extremely hard on the surface, are actually hollow. The hollow structure inside the tooth is called the "root canal". It contains dental nerves and blood vessels, which maintain the nutritional and sensory functions of the teeth. Tooth decay, tooth trauma, cracks and other factors can easily lead to infection inside the root canal. Pain occurs when inflammatory secretions in the root canal compress the tooth nerve. Because teeth are very hard tissues, and the root canals are very narrow and cannot expand, the toothache is very severe, and injections and medicines cannot solve the problem.


"Root canal treatment" is not simply a simple guarantee of the 3 tips


Root canal treatment is a treatment that requires experience and care. Thorough treatment can prevent subsequent tooth inflammation. Reinfection after treatment is common if not done thoroughly. To ensure the effectiveness of root canal treatment, it is best to master the following three tips.

1. Choose the hospital carefully: Because the first treatment is unsuccessful, the success rate of re-treatment is not only lower than that of the first treatment, but also more difficult and more expensive.


2. Even if the tooth does not hurt, you must insist on treatment: Since root canal treatment often has "immediate" effects, many patients think that as long as the tooth does not hurt, the disease is cured and are unwilling to undergo follow-up treatment. This is actually very wrong. You must know that pain is only a symptom of the disease, and the absence of pain does not mean that there is no disease. The drilled teeth must be thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and filled to ensure no infection. Otherwise, before long, the tooth will hurt again, and root canal treatment will have to be performed again.

3. You may wish to install a "braces" after the treatment: After the root canal treatment is completed, the infected nerves and blood vessels have been removed, and the teeth have no nutrition. As time goes by, the brittleness will become greater and greater. If you want to keep this tooth for life, it is recommended that the patient go to the dental prosthodontics department to make a brace to protect the tooth and prevent the tooth from cracking.
