Endodontics is the dental specialty that deals with the treatment of pulpal diseases, the treatment of the root canal. Innovative practices in the field of endodontics today manage to save a tooth that would otherwise have had to be extracted.
Endodontic treatment (root canal treatment) becomes necessary when the nerve is destroyed due to an infection inside the tooth. Untreated, this infection spreads to the end of the root. Over time, they lead to the destruction of the tissues around the root and the loss of the tooth.
To prevent the spread of the infection inside the tooth to nearby tissues and the occurrence of complications, there are two therapeutic possibilities: tooth extraction or endodontic treatment - which is the conservative solution that makes it possible to keep the tooth.
Depending on the difficulty, a treatment can take between 45 minutes and 2 hours. The operation takes place under anesthesia, so it is completely painless. After the intervention, the tooth has a slight sensitivity that disappears in a maximum of 3 days. However, there are situations in which the treatment is completed after 2-3 sessions.
Techniques for preparing and filling dental canals have advanced, leading to healing and saving the tooth. If after the consultation, the dentist decides that you need a root canal treatment, it means that your tooth can still be saved.
During endodontic treatment, the tooth being operated on must be completely isolated from the patient's oral cavity by means of the dam system (cofferdam, ruberdam). The use of this isolation system ensures a comfortable and quality treatment.
Apex locator a special device that measures the length of the root canal gives us exact information where the tip of the tooth root is located.
The radiological examination provides additional information that is essential during diagnosis and during endodontic treatment. Tracking the progress of the case over time is not possible without radiological examination. 3-4 small dental (retroalveolar) radiographs are usually required. The high-performance radiological equipment currently used exposes the patient to a much lower radiation dose, which does not affect his health.
Properly performed endodontic treatment ensures root health and the maintenance of the tooth in good working order for a long period of time, often throughout the patient's life. By choosing endodontic treatment versus extraction, choose to keep your natural teeth as a healthy foundation for long-lasting, functional teeth.
Dentistry is the branch of dentistry that deals with the treatment of cavities and dental pain. The dentist places great emphasis on aesthetics and durability (applying modern methods of cavity preparation and filling). The major advantages of dentistry today are that doctors know the properties of each material, interventions are no longer painful and almost everything is performed under anesthesia.
Dental treatments include a variety of procedures designed to relieve and cure various ailments of the teeth, from simple caries to their complications that affect the pulp and periodontium of the teeth. An important part of these treatments is represented by the final stage of restoring the structure and functionality of the respective teeth, by using aesthetic materials and state-of-the-art techniques, all of which contribute to obtaining a satisfactory aesthetic result for the patient. Among the most common operations performed in the Albero clinic are:
Dental hypersensitivity is a current oral health problem worldwide. Although a common problem, only a small proportion of patients suffering from dental sensitivity seek the advice of a dentist.
Hyperesthesia and dentinal hypersensitivity are two different but similarly similar dental conditions - the sensations of pain are felt when the nerves inside the dentin are exposed to the environment. These sensations can range from mild irritation to severe pain.
Dentinal hyperaesthesia occurs when the dentin is gradually exposed, through the erosion over time of the protective layer - cement and enamel. This condition occurs in the presence of triggers: bacterial plaque at least a few days old, food debris that promotes acid fermentation. Hyperesthesia occurs in the area of the package (where the crown meets the root) or in an unobstructed cavity of the tooth, and the pain is triggered by the action of mechanical factors - hard food, palpation, aggressive brushing.
Dentinal hypersensitivity occurs when the protective layer suddenly disappears, and the dentin is exposed to exciting factors without having time to adjust. Unlike hyperesthesia, in the case of hypersensitivity the pain is caused by non-harmful factors - volatile, tactile, osmotic or chemical and ceases immediately after their removal.
If sometimes your teeth hurt in the presence of a stimulus (very cold food, cold air, sour taste) - pain that disappears later, once it is removed or you have benefited from a professional whitening treatment or your vital teeth have been polished, then it is you may experience dental hypersensitivity.
