Root Canal Treatment

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp (soft tissue inside your teeth containing blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue) becomes inflamed or diseased. During root canal treatment, your dentist removes the diseased pulp. The pulp chamber and root canal(s) of the tooth are then cleaned and sealed. If the infected pulp is not removed, pain and swelling can result, and your tooth may have to be removed.
Causes of an infected pulp could include:
• a deep cavity
• repeated dental procedures
• a cracked or broken tooth
• injury to the tooth (even if there’s not a visible crack or chip)
If you continue to care for your teeth and gums your restored tooth could last a lifetime. However, regular checkups are necessary; a tooth without its nerve can still develop cavities or gum disease. Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile.

If in a teeth found any black fungus or some other thing so should consult to dentist?

If in a teeth found any  black fungus or some other thing so should consult to dentist?
The black fungus is nothing but caries in your tooth. Kindly get the cavity filled before it becomes deep and painful. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene. Avoid having sticky food and sweets before going to bed.

I am seventy two years old. I am having pain in the lower jaw left 6, 7 tooth while biting and sometimes it is unbearable. Should remove those teeth? any conservative treatment possible? any medicine? to improve the life of tooth, any medicine?

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
It could be possible to save the tooth with rct or crowns or a combination of both depending on the exact cause of your current problem. Since the teeth you have mentioned are important ones for chewing, I suggest you should take whatever steps are suggested to preserve them rather than getting them removed.

We often tend to neglect the black spot on tooth, which eventually hollows out the entire tooth. At this stage the tooth cavity is limited to the outermost layer that's enamel. Over a period of time, it enters dentin which is the second layer of tooth. At this stage, slight sensitivity to cold/hot may be experienced. After eroding the dentin, it enters the third layer, which is the pulp, and this is the time you experience shooting pain, can't sleep in the night. This is the time you visit dentist and undergo a root canal treatment and then a crown, 2-4 appointments minimum and around 5000 rs expenditure. Now you realise that a visit to a dentist few months back would have been better. The dentist would have simply removed a decay and cover your tooth cavity with a dental cement. Just 600-800 bucks. So my dear patients, don't wait for the dental pain and then seek treatment. Better, keep a watch on your teeth, visit dentist every 6 months for routine check up, your will save lot of time, energy and money!

If the cap is placed after rct than you need to get re-rct. If not, than get your teeth x-rayed to determine the cause. It can be either due to decay or gum infection.

I'm 23 years old male. Saliva secrets in my mouth during sleeping. I have lot of saliva while wake up. I have this issue for 10 yrs. Help me to overcome this.

BDS
Dentist, Ahmedabad
Having saliva secretion is a normal body mechanism. There's nothing to worry about it. One good thing younshould know about saliva that most prople don't know is its a natural antibiotic produced in our body. It contains digestive juices also which hepls in a better digestion process. We usually consider saliva as a irritting thing when we get up in the morning and we spit it out with gargles. Instead of spitting it out we should swallow that saliva which in turn olays an important role in terms of digestion as well as a immunity booster. And having much saliva secretion also keeps our teeth clean which again keeos our mouth cavities free. So having much saliva secretion is a good thing rather than irritating.

If you want to make teeth white you can do laser bleeching it will give promising results. Ask with your dentist about laser bleeching. Its available in all modern dental clinics. Tooth paste you can ask your dentist which 1 suits you.

Tooth ache can be due to many reasons like decay, gum problem, erupting third molar etc. It is inportant to know the cause and treat them. Medicines gives only a symptomatic relief. I suggest you to consult a dentist nearby.

For a toothache, the permanent solution is only identification of the cause and its treatment. Antibiotics alone can, at best, give you temporary relief, and often, create additional problems, as in your case. Consult your dentist again so they may either stop, or change, your antibiotics, as necessary, and begin definitive treatment of the actual dental problem causing your trouble. In the meantime, you may use something like Pantoprazole 40 mg once or twice a day, Ranitidine 150 mg twice a day, etc. To reduce the gastric discomfort. You can add Cap Sporlac twice a day in case of diarrhea.

It is advisable to change your toothbrush every 3 months as the bristles starts to fray after that and may not clean your teeth well.

Mouth ulcers are usually due to vitamin deficiency or bad digestion. Other causes are tonsils, trauma from teeth, dry mouth, tonsillitis, stress, change in lifestyle, allergies to certain foods and medication, smoking and tobacco chewing, consumption of spicy n hot foods. These ulcers are actually sores usually round, white, or grey in color, with a red edge or border. The condition is usually becomes okay within 7 days. But if it persists beyond that, or if multiple ulcers keep re-appearing, medical advice must be taken. In severe mouth ulcer attacks, you may also experience fever and physical sluggishness. Taking Vitamin B12 supplements along with a suitable gel for pain is the best remedy. I suggest that you consult me privately on lybrate so that I can send you the appropriate prescription. Take care
