Root Canals, Fillings

Treat Gum Diseases In Time & Save Your Mobile Teeth

Service Overview

Did you know that cavities can be prevented? How you may wonder. In plain language, cavities are the surfaces of the teeth eaten up or destroyed by the bacteria’s in the mouth. Initially, they may be presented with a white flaky discoloration over the tooth and slowly it spreads deeper turning black- brown. Once it reaches the 2nd layer of the teeth which is called dentin, pain and sensitivity may start. Intolerable pain and discomfort are usually due to the infection reaching the pulp of the teeth.

It is always advisable that you visit us at least once in 6 months so that the progress of the cavity can be stopped if started. Fillings play an important role in that.

Generally, you will be given instructions so as to make optimum use of your teeth. Additional care would be required if there are any habits like pan, supari, tobacco etc or para-functional habits like bruxism etc.

If you have pain, swelling, or a pulp infection due to caries / caries near the pulp, you may need:

  • Indirect or Direct Pulp Capping:

This pulping is done when the decay is very close to the pulp but does not reach the pulp. Also, the pulp remains intact and is not exposed even after the dentist has completely removed the caries.

  • Partial Pulpectomy / Pulpotomy:

Pulp therapy  is performed when the decay has reached the pulp. In addition, the pulp is  intact and partially damaged. Your dentist here makes his or her own decision on whether to  remove both the damaged pulp and the intact pulp or to remove only the damaged pulp.

  • Complete Pulpectomy / RCT:

This pulpotherapy treatment is performed when caries or damage has reached the pulp. Also, the pulp is partially or completely damaged. The dentist  removes the  damaged pulp from the pulp chamber and root. The roots are then filled  immediately or after a multi-sided dressing is soaked in the medicine (usually with gutta percha). Treatment is called complete pulpectomy or root canal therapy.

 

Can Root Canal Treatment take Multiple Visits?

Neglecting the techniques and dressings prescribed during the dressing phase can make it difficult to fill the root canal. Meeting schedules must be adhered to, especially at this stage. After that, your teeth will be restored with or without posts, brackets, etc., depending on the dentist’s decision. As a result of  this treatment you can sometimes feel the pain again  and in such cases your tooth may require repeating  the whole procedure around cutting or surgery, the infection should be removed. usually by removing the root tip of your tooth.

Surgical treatment can be performed with or without tooth removal. The  success rate of pulp treatment is about 90%, and in rare cases it may be necessary to remove the tooth.

Patient Maintenance after Root canal Treatment in One Day-

To keep the restoration in its best shape, it should be professionally cleaned twice a year. The reason for  frequent brushing is to remove food debris that accumulates in the microscopic spaces on the surface of the teeth. You must strictly follow all  instructions  and inform your dentist of any unforeseen occurrences at your next visit. This allows the dentist to guide you and quickly take the appropriate corrective action.

Your experience will depend on many factors, only a few of which you and your dentist have control over. Certain factors, such as grinding and/or clenching of teeth, can play an important role in the longevity of implants and restorations. The use of polymers prolongs the life of bone, natural teeth and implants under restoration  compared to ceramic or zirconia. Your follow-up instructions and appropriate follow-up visits will also improve the success and longevity of your implants and  restorations.  

Depending upon your case the doctor may decide to clean the cavity and fill it with different types of tooth color material. They may be light-cured composite or fluoride-releasing cement. If the cavities are large then the doctor may advise a lab fabricated filling called as an inlay.

In certain cases where the cavity is deep or in cases where the pulp of teeth has been affected or in cases of cosmetic correction of the teeth the doctor may advise for root canal treatment or pulp therapy. Pulp therapy involves cleaning the pulp chamber of all the bacteria and then filling the chamber with an inert material. After the pulp chamber has been cleared the remaining crown of the tooth needs to brace or protected with a cap.

In most cases, filling and/or root canal treatment can be finished on the same day along with capping.

Root Canals, Fillings Case Study

Before Treatment

After Treatment

Bone resorption along with lower bone quality often makes it impossible to place dental implants in the posterior maxilla. Zygomatic implants are then advised and anchored in to the zygomatic bone rather than the maxilla. Zygomatic implants are planned for the upper jaw in complex situations such as poor quality of bone, bone resorption, decreased height of bone over time or presence of air spaces or sinus.
