The tooth pulp or nerve is a group of tissues found at the core of a tooth or molar.
The nerve of the tooth is one of the tissues sensitive to external factors such as tooth decay, hot and cold drinks. When the nerve of the teeth is inflamed, treatment methods are determined according to the condition of the tooth and the degree of inflammation.
Causes of Tooth pulpinflammation:
The most important reasons that lead to inflammation in the dental nerve is the entry of bacteria and microbes into the nerve of the tooth, either through decay or a break in the tooth through which these microbes can be delivered to the nerve
There are other causes such as gum disease, fractures in dental fillings and sinusitis
Symptoms of tooth pulp inflammation
1- Feeling of pain when eating cold or hot foods and drinks.
2- Feeling a slight pain in the jaw.
3- Irritation of the tooth and a feeling of pain when touching or biting.
4- Waking up from sleep due to pain.
Treatment of dental nerve inflammation:
Treatable neuritis: It is an infection that affects the pulp of the teeth, in which the dental nerve is treatable and returns to its normal position, and this is done by removing the effect or the reason behind the infection, such as the use of dental fillings in the event of caries.
Irreversible dental neuritis is an infection that affects the dental nerve and it is not possible to return the pulp of the teeth to its normal position, and in this case the tooth needs to perform endodontic treatment or pull the tooth nerve to get rid of the infection.
It is a treatment that is used in the event that the infection (bacteria) reaches the pulp of the tooth, through which the tooth canals are cleaned and filled so that the infection does not recur again.
In the case of persistent pain, or the tooth was subjected to strong trauma that led to its death, and also in certain cases such as infections, orthodontic treatments or fixtures.
The answer is definitively no… if the treatment is carried out under the hands of an experienced specialist.
In most cases, only one session.
