Undergoing Root Canal Treatment? Consider These Things!!

BDS, MDS Endodontist

Undergoing Root Canal Treatment? Consider These Things!!

Root canal treatment is an effective procedure which is used to treat a tooth whose pulp has been infected. The treatment helps to remove the elimination and further protects the tooth from future microbial attacks. Root canals are physical hollows in a tooth which naturally consists of nerves, blood vessels and other cellular beings.

Learning about Root Canal Treatment-

Before one decides to go for root canal treatment, it is important to realize that this method is useful for preserving a dead tooth, not to save one. So, why does one keep the old tooth which is beyond repair? One can pull out the dead tooth and fill the gap with an implant along with an artificial tooth. However, the main reason for doing this is because it is much simpler than an implant. Even though the old tooth is dead, one can immensely benefit from keeping it as its structure will help you to chew food and talk properly.

In root canal therapy, the doctor cuts off the infected nerve tissue inside the tooth so as to prevent it from infecting the rest of the tooth. But there are consequences of root canal therapy as well. A root canal procedure makes the tooth brittle and much more fracture prone. This is because the inside of the tooth has been removed leaving the outside shell dry and brittle. This is why a root canal therapy often involves a second procedure called crown. A root canaled tooth needs to be protected because the tissue inside of it has been removed. Here comes the crown. The crown is a strong outer covering which is even stronger than the enamel which preserves the structure of the tooth thus preventing fractures.

Failure to undergo permanent restoration placement by the dentist after root canal treatment within next few weeks may result in failure of the root canal treatment due to decay, infection, tooth fracture and/or loss of the tooth structure.

Factors Determining the Success of Root Canal Treatment-

A root canal therapy is an attempt at saving the remains of your tooth. However, sometimes the damage is too much or the enamel is too brittle to withstand the procedure. These factors may cause the loss of a tooth.

Many factors contribute to the success of root canal treatment and not all factors can be determined in advance. Some of the factors are:

  1. individual resistance to infection.
  2. the size, shape and location of the canals.

A case may be more difficult if the tooth has blocked, curved, or narrow canals. The treatment may not relieve the symptoms and treatment can sometimes fail for unexplained reasons. If treatment fails, other procedures (including re-treatment or surgery) may be necessary to retain the tooth, or it may have to be extracted. During and after treatment, the patient may experience some pain or discomfort, swelling, bleeding and loosening of dental restorations and may also need antibiotics to treat any associated infections.

Another factor in this method is the development of an abscess near the root of the tooth if some of the infection remains back or if the antibiotics are not effective enough. Root canal instruments sometimes separate (break) inside the canal which may or may not effect the prognosis. If the separated fragment cannot be retrieved, it may be sealed inside the root canal, or require additional treatment in the future.

Failure to undergo permanent restoration placement by the dentist after root canal treatment within next few weeks may fail if the root canal treatment, decay, infection, tooth fracture and/or loss of the tooth.

Alternative Techniques-

The alternative techniques to root canal therapy include either no treatment or tooth extraction. Tooth extraction may be followed by any prosthetic replacement procedure like dental implants or a removable denture. One can also fix a partial denture which is commonly called a bridge in medical terms.

Conducting no treatments is often accompanied by factors like occasional pains, infection and a possibility of deterioration in the dental infection such that the tooth will no longer be restorable. If a massive loss of tooth structure occurs, then extraction may be the only option.

Taking all factors into consideration, root canal therapy is a very effective method for removing dental infection and is the best possible method in the field. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a dentist.

Hello, Use Homeodent toothpaste twice daily, morning and night before sleep. Take care. Home remedy:- Cleaning your teeth with fresh orange peel on a regular basis will reduce the yellow tinge accumulated on your teeth. Rub orange peel over your teeth every night before going to sleep. The vitamin C and calcium in the orange peel will combat the microorganisms throughout the night. Do this for a few weeks and you will notice effective results. If fresh orange peel is not available, you can use dried orange peel powder. Take care.

Dear sir, my wife age 50 yrs having weak gums as per doctor 1 suggested gum massage and removal of one front teeth and plan to make bridge upper and lower . Doc 2 advised to remove 7 teeth's n make cover bridge both side. What should we do ?

Sir, you have basically seen 2 dentists whose opinions were at variance with each other. So you need to decide which opinion you would like to accept. Try and talk to the dentists, and discuss the reasons for their opinions. Get their rationale for the proposed plan. Maybe get another opinion as well. That might help you decide about the plan most suited to you.

Kindly get yourself assessed by dentist for the depth of cavity. The dentist would either fill the tooth or do a root canal treatment in the tooth. N get an xray done at the clinic so that diagnosis is made accordingly.

Hi, there are various reason for toothache like worn down enamel, tooth decay, gum issue. I would advise you to visit to a dentist who can give you exact cause and solution of your problem after a physical check up. Without checking you clinically we can't suggest you anything.

Hello. If there is wound and you eat gutka, so I would suggest you to give the habit of gutka. But before that go to a nearby Dentist to get it examined, in case needed will have to get the biopsy test done for proper diagnosis. For the meantime, can have homoeopathic medication which is very safe to take - Merc. Sol. 30/ thrice daily for 10days.

Dear lybrate user, reduced mouth opening can be due to problem in the jaw joint or fibrosis/thickening on the inside of your cheeks due to infection. Consult your dentist soon to know the exact cause. Eat a soft diet, avoid fried and spicy foods, drink plenty of water and fluids.

Toothpicks can be an alternative to use for flossing if dental floss is not available. Remember not to be too harsh while using it.

Mouth is not open properly because I was eaten tobacco before 6 month ago. How possible to open it.

As you have mentioned. You are having a habbit of tobacco chewing. Visit a dentist. Dentist will tell you in detail regarding the mouth opening. Basically this condition called as a Oral submucous fibrosis (fibrosis in oral mucosa leading to reduced mouth opening. It is a precancerous condition. Fist of all you should avoid tobacco chewing immediately. There are some medicine like injections and some mouth opening exercise with mouth opening instrument that will help you open the mouth.

I have bleeding gums. and most of the time I have yellowish teeth so how to remove this ?

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
The dentist, periodontist, or dental hygienist removes the plaque through a deep-cleaning method called scaling and root planing. Scaling means scraping off the tartar from above and below the gum line. Root planing gets rid of rough spots on the tooth root where the germs gather, and helps remove bacteria that contribute to the disease.

Hi lybrate-user, Do not worry just maintain your normal oral hygiene, everything is normal only. Just keep a check if the size of the lump grows in 6 months or so. And its nothing related to your habit of smoking. But it would be good if you can try and quit smoking. Few of my patients have tried NICOTEX and they have been able to quit smoking. U can also try and get rid of it.
