Procedures For Treating Root Canals?
Excuse me Doctor, I want to ask about dental treatment. Yesterday I went to the dentist for permanent dental molars he said this patch could be valid for life. Then before the filling was done my teeth were sterilized and given mummy medicine and the time was only 2 days later my teeth were permanently patched. Is the procedure correct? Thank you in advance 🙏
Hello Ayu, Thank you for your question.
Are you having cavities? What is the severity of your teeth? Tooth decay can cause food debris to accumulate in the tooth cavity and is a good medium for bacteria to grow. If bacteria grow, these bacteria can cause infections in the inside of your teeth that contain blood vessels and nerves (pulp). As a result, you will feel pain in the teeth. Handling this condition can be divided into dental mummification or tooth decay or dental root canal treatment. Both of these actions are both aimed at maintaining your teeth so they can still be used to digest food.
In dental mummification, the dentist will clean teeth from infection and put material into the pulp chamber to kill teeth. If after this procedure the sufferer no longer experiences pain on the examination, then the dentist can make permanent fillings. In treating root canals, the dentist will clean the pulp up to the root canal by inserting certain ingredients. Usually this root treatment can be done for several visits to the doctor until the pulp is clean and no longer infected before finally permanent patches or other treatment measures such as dental crowns are placed. This mummification treatment has generally been abandoned by root canal treatment. However, if root canal treatment is not successful then tooth mummification can still be considered in addition to tooth extraction.
Regarding the number of times the treatment must be done before filling, I'm sorry I can not answer for sure because this decision is based on the condition of your teeth from the dentist's examination. Each patient will undergo treatment that is not necessarily the same. Therefore, you are encouraged to ask questions directly with the dentist who treats you. If you are still in doubt, you can consult another dentist for a second opinion.
Please do the following recommendations to maintain your dental health:
brush your teeth regularly with fluoride containing toothpaste
Use dental floss to clean between your teeth
Limit consumption of sweet foods
regularly check your dental health to the dentist
I hope this helps.
