In cases where tooth decay progresses, the nerve-vessel package inside the tooth may be affected and pain may occur over time.
In some cases, teeth may lose their vitality due to gum diseases or trauma. In such cases, root canal treatment may be required so that the teeth can be used in the mouth without a focus of infection.
Why does toothache occur?
The pain felt in the tooth originates from the tooth, gingiva or bone. First of all, the cause of the pain should be determined. It can be caused by many reasons such as pain, tooth decay, pressure from food stuck between two teeth, gingival diseases, tooth cracks, root surface exposed by gingival recession, abrasions in enamel and even sinusitis. However, the most common cause of toothache is deep dental caries, which develops in the presence of inadequate oral hygiene.
Apical Resection is the Removal of the Root Tip and Surrounding Infected Tissue. After the root canal treatment, that area is surgically reached to remove the problematic part of the tooth. Apical Resection is the Removal of the Root Tip and Surrounding Infected Tissue.
After root canal treatment, that area is surgically reached to remove the problematic part of the tooth. At the end of the procedure, the root tip is closed with a special filling material. Laser can be used during the operation to increase the success of the procedure and the comfort after the procedure.
Swelling, mild bleeding and discomfort may occur in the first 24-48 hours after the operation.
You can apply ice to your face to reduce swelling. Stitches are removed within 7-10 days and the healing status of the wound area is checked by your dentist. The restoration of the tooth (filling or crown) is completed when the wound area is fully healed.
In the past, root resection procedures were more common procedures. Today, however, it is more preferred to extract the tooth and replace it with an implant. Although it is more preferable to leave the natural tooth, in some cases, implant application is a better option.
