We often pay less attention to the health of our teeth not understanding how important their role in promoting a healthy body and physique is. Teeth are natural cutters given to us by God which help in biting, tearing chewing the food we eat and pushing it through the food pipe so that it reaches digestive organs of a body from where glucose flows into arteries and veins supplying energy to the body for growth and repair of tissues, muscles, and bones. Damage to a tooth needs attention, care, and proper dental treatment from a dentist who knows all the procedures, methods and surgeries which can save the teeth from further decay and extraction. Dentists at Samir dental clinic practice all type of dentistry procedures which help in maintaining the health of teeth and also their beauty.
One common practice we all do to maintain healthy teeth is brushing them daily some of us, often carry out this ritual twice a day while others are happy practicing it one single time. It is good to practice brushing for healthy teeth, but it is also equally important to visit the dentist at regular intervals so that any problem in any of the tooth get noticed at an initial stage when it is easy to control it and save the tooth. Regular appointments with dentists save damage to the tooth which if ignored result in further decay of tooth and it may end with the extraction of a tooth. Samir dental clinic provides excellent services in root-canal treatment in Delhi which is the best alternate and prevention measure for saving a decayed tooth.
Advancement in medical technology has one of the objectives to invent machines and methodologies which help in saving the natural organs. The smooth functioning of natural body organs make us complete and independent they are the reason for our abilities to compile the work and carry the responsibilities. However sometimes accidents, ailments cause damage to the organs which then become fractured, infected, injured and need medical assistance for retaining their functionality and look. Medical Science understands the physiological and psychological importance of these organs and body parts and attempts their prevention in every manner so is the aim of dentists treating your decayed tooth and infected gums. The dentists at Samir dental clinic implement all type of measures and procedures to prevent the extraction and therefore adopt the method of root-canal for saving the tooth.
Dentists recommend root canal treatment for the tooth which has decayed and the only other option to save it is extraction. Extraction of tooth takes less time and gives fast relief from pain, but it needs replacement with a new artificial tooth otherwise, the symmetry of the jaw is disturbed, and open gums have increased chances of getting infected, and damaging other teeth. A root canal is a procedure which needs three to four sessions with a dentist for cleaning the tooth and preserving it.
A root canal is the treatment of tooth which has a cavity in the center and has affected nerves, blood vessels, tissues within the tooth which causes severe pain in the tooth and sometimes results in forming a hole in the tooth. The dentists treat the affected tooth making use of root canal therapy wherein the nerves, blood vessels and pulp from within the tooth is taken out, and a tooth is sealed. Without treatment of tooth, it may end up becoming an abscessed tooth which is the result of multiplication of bacteria within the pulp chamber when a tooth decays to the extent that its tissues break and bacteria enters the pulp chamber. The infection spreads at a faster rate causing too much pain and affecting the roots of other teeth in a jaw. It sometimes also results in swelling of mouth, neck, throat, and causes shooting pain within the mouth.
A root canal is a treatment which calls for a few numbers of sittings with a dentist. Samir dental clinic follows the series of steps while conducting root canal treatment of the patient so that the procedure is safe and less painful for the patient. At an initial meet, dentist analyzes the nature and structure of the teeth and examines the tooth which is causing a problem. He asks the patient about the time since when the tooth has started causing pain. Dentists examine the entire oral structure of the patient and if, he sees the signs of infection and swelling he recommends the patient to wait for the time till the infection diminishes.
Dentists recommend the medicines which help the patient to finish the infection and control pain. After infection finishes, dentists take an X-ray of the area near the tooth which needs root-canal treatment. The X-ray helps dentists to understand the details of the tooth in terms of the level of infection, depth of nerves of the tooth, area of the tooth infected and damaged by the bacteria and many other details making the treatment more precise and fruitful. Next dentists come to reduce sensations of teeth using anesthesia. It helps the patient to undertake the procedure without feeling pain and uncomfortable. A sheet of rubber is made use of for absorbing the saliva around the teeth and keeping the area dry so that dentists can proceed with the treatment. The center of the tooth which is an infected area is approached making a hole in the tooth using a drill. The pulp, damaged nerves, and other debris are flushed out using water or sodium hypochlorite. After, it is clean the tooth needs filling of root canal files which increase in diameter and extend down till the roots of a tooth. Dentists complete all these procedures in one to two sittings, and they may wait for a few weeks before final sealing of tooth as they want to check if there occurs any infection or pain. For analyzing, the response of the tooth within a few days they do a temporary filling of the tooth. If, patients do not complain about pain or infection dentists finish the treatment with permanent sealing around the tooth. Many times dentists recommend a patient to get a cap on their tooth as it helps in keeping the sealing inside the teeth intact and it increases the success rate of the treatment.
Root canal treatment has a high success rate among other dental procedures and surgeries. It is not a very painful process, and the application of modern instruments makes it more user-friendly. It saves the natural tooth of the patient and also suits the pocket of the patients. The treatment is not as expensive as the other procedures which become mandatory after the extraction of teeth like implantation and bridging which are costly dental treatments. They are essential as leaving the gums exposed after extraction cause problem in chewing food and hard substances, loosens the adjacent teeth, distorts the symmetry of teeth and jaw line and sometimes the remnants of food get stuck in the open spaces which cause oral infection and may also result in the foul breath.
Root canal treatment does not ensure that the teeth will further not be affected by the infection and cause pain. Despite the efforts of the dentist, the treated tooth may get infected which mainly is due to the unhealthy dental habits and sometimes a crack in the sealing of the tooth allows the bacteria to enter the tooth and cause a problem. In such cases, the retreatment of the tooth becomes essential in which the entire process calls for repetition. If the bone, around the treated tooth, gets infected it calls for a procedure which demands the opening of gum tissues and removal of the infected tissue and root of the tooth and sealing the filling helps in prevention of teeth.
One does not need to follow much of the precautions after completing the root canal treatment. The person can count back on to the daily food items he includes in his meals taking care that he avoids too much sticky food and start chewing with the treated tooth after a few days. What benefits the root canal treatment and saves the person form other painful dental procedures is paying attention to the health of teeth. The most important habit that we often lack is doing gaggles after every meal with water or sometimes, using mouth rinse as it protects the food from sticking on to our teeth and forming a layer of deposits on the teeth which gives birth to bacteria causing damage to teeth and oral health. Regular brushing twice a day and floss are other essentials that promote healthy teeth. Type of food we add most often to our daily diets also regulates oral health. Extremely hot or cold food affects the sensitivity of the teeth and makes them prone to fast decay. Excess spicy, acidic food, alcohol and dark brews do not promote healthy gums and teeth. Smoking also disturbs the health of teeth and gums.
