Treatment Of Broken Tooth Nerves?
I want to ask, I once had a broken front tooth (half) around 2008, then in 2015 I did a dental patch. but in 2018 my tooth fillings came out, and I patched my teeth again. but 2 months later the patched teeth ached, drank cold water. I was consul, I was advised for dental care. How?
Hello Steffi, Thank you for the question.
Dental root canal treatment is aimed at treating infections in the pulp (the inside of a tooth consisting of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue). This action is done to prevent further tooth decay and maintain teeth so that the teeth do not need to be pulled. If the pulp tissue becomes inflamed or infected, this condition can cause pain such as when exposed to cold or hot food and drinks, when chewing, or teeth that feel rocking. If this infection is not treated immediately, there can be a risk of tooth abscess or bone tissue damage at the root tip of the tooth. Infection in the pulp can occur in the teeth that have been patched if the patched teeth are cracked or damaged, or the previous patching procedure is not treated properly.
If the dentist has examined you (including taking dental x-rays) and suggested this action, then you should follow the dentist's advice because the dentist has examined you and is more aware of problems with your teeth at this time. If you are in doubt, you can ask for a second opinion from another dentist regarding the procedure.
In the meantime, please keep your oral hygiene by brushing your teeth regularly. Avoid consuming cold or hot foods and drinks to prevent further toothache. Please take paracetamol or other pain relievers if your toothache worsens.
Hopefully this information is useful.
