And on the schedule next week back to be opened again in a new nervous wheezing in a permanent tambel. R n r nThe question … r n Is that the procedure for treating swollen gums? (The child’s molars are indeed hollow)
What your child is experiencing might be a form of cavities whose infection has reached the root of a tooth and also eventually causes gum infections. So that the gums become swollen and produce pus (bacterial infection production).
What your child's dentist has done is a root canal treatment technique. Root canal is a channel that contains nerves and blood vessels. The infected root canal will irritate the nerves and cause extreme pain. In root canal treatment (PSA), the root canals will be cleaned from infected nerves and blood vessels, then given special drugs to kill the nerves of the teeth. Cavities will be patched temporarily and within 1 week, the dentist will open the patches temporarily and see the condition of the tooth root canals. If the tooth nerve has died and the root canal has been cleared, the dentist will insert a special drug to sterilize the root canal of the tooth. At this stage, the dentist will close the cavity with a temporary patch. After 1 week, the dentist will see the condition of the root canal and if it is in good condition then the cavity will be covered with permanent fillings.
Dental root canal treatment techniques can be done differently from what we wrote above, the dentist will adjust to the conditions of dental infections experienced by patients.
Perform proper dental care control as recommended by your dentist.
In the future, teach and guide your child to take care of the teeth as follows:
Brush your teeth at least 2x a day, after breakfast and lunch and before going to bed at night. Perform proper brushing techniques in the manner written in this HealthReplies.com article.
