When not treated in time decay reaches the pulp or near it to affect them. The vitality of a tooth is given by the pulp (composed of cells and blood vessels).

When the pulp has been irreversibly affected can become inflamed and can also be infected, then it will be necessary to perform the root canal.
Treatment Consite carefully remove inflamed tissue and then disinfect the inside of the tooth, and finally seal or fill the ducts.
This treatment is usually simpler than is usually done in one session, but as the case may require two or even three sessions. The advantage of this treatment is that the teeth had to be extracted before they can remain for years now in the mouth.

Procedure: The root canal involves removing the nerve (or nerves) of the tooth, thoroughly cleaning the duct where it resides in the root., Is a procedure performed under local anesthesia proper, is painless, and allows to reconstruct and preserve teeth that otherwise would be removed.
It is practiced by introducing into the nerve through a series of proper equipment for it, and after removing the nerve, she cleaned the canal wall any traces of infection still adhere. Then the tube is filled with special sealing materials completely.
Throughout the process radiographs are obtained to accurately determine the length of the root and remove all traces of ribs or infection, if any.
It is possible that once the root canal feel some discomfort, so the dentist will recommend a treatment to prevent pain and inflammation.
If the dentist places a temporary paste the tooth, you should not eat for an hour.
Every piece endodonciada or root canal treatment should take long-term reinforcement of metal and a cover, as it becomes weaker and fracture risk.
Dental caries Dental caries is a destructive process of tooth structures occasioned by microorganisms in plaque begins as a spot incipient and small and as you progress on the tooth, will destroy the enamel and dentin .
As he approaches the nerve, it normally begins to topic screens to stimuli of heat or cold and sweet and sour.
If not treated early, decay can lead to inflammation or infection of the nerve of the piece, and also the surrounding elements (bone, gum and periodontal ligament).


FAQ: Endodontics is required even when the tooth does not hurt? Sometimes, if as this does not mean that that part is not affected and may have an infection that not of symptomatology, but can treat problems and fail to treat it.
Another reason that comes to endodontics prevention is to avoid just this kind of long-term infections that cause you to lose teeth and endanger the patient’s oral health.
Likewise, for those treatments requiring oral rehabilitation of endodontically pieces to rely on them, especially if they have fillings in poor or deep cavities.
A tooth with root canal no longer hurts more? The answer is no, because if the tooth has root canal, which will not hurt is the nerve (ie pain to cold, heat, sweets, acids, etc.). But that tooth is not dead, or is this in contact with other structures in the mouth such as bone, periodontal ligament or the gum with your nerves.
If an infection is installed there hurts just like in any other part that has not made endodontics.
