Is a Root Canal painful? Yes, to an extent (when not done carefully)…but if we took proper aftercare it should be fine in no time. In our previous blog we have mentioned the aftercares and other quick tips to tackle root canal (check it on www.smilestation.in) now let us explain how this whole procedure is done –

Deep infection

The root canal treatment is required when there happens to be any injury or large cavity damage occurred to the tooth’s root. Here the root becomes infected or inflamed due to the cavity.

The route to the decay

In the initial stages your dentist numbs the tooth. Then an opening is made created through the crown of the tooth to the pulp chamber.

Next it’s the removing of the inflamed tissue

Some special files are used to clean the infection and infectious pulp out of the canals. In the next step they shape the canals for the filling material.  Here, Irrigation is used to clean the canals and remove any debris present.

We then fill the canals

The canals are next filled with a permanent material. This is done with a material known as gutta-percha generally. This is done in order to keep the canals free of infection and contamination.

Reconstruction of the tooth

The reconstruction of the tooth includes temporary filling material which is placed on top of the gutta-percha to seal the opening on the top. Then the filling remains until the tooth gets a permanent filling or a crown. The crown appears like a cap that looks like a natural tooth. It is placed over the top of the tooth.

The extra support

In few cases, this post is placed into the root close to the gutta-percha. This provides the crown more support. Finally the crowning touch is added where the crown is cemented into the place.

Root Canal…one of the scariest nightmares for all of us, right? And all the pain and irritation till the complete healing period, is that what scares us the most? Well, yes, that’s right, to an extent. But first let’s know more about it in detail. The root canal is a treatment to heal the badly damaged or infected tooth due to decay. This treatment involves removing the damaged area of the tooth called the pulp, cleaning it up and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it. The basic causes affecting the pulp are the case of a cracked tooth, or a deep cavity, even some repeated dental treatment to the tooth or a trauma. You must be wondering why this is called a root canal. Well, because it involves cleaning of the canals inside the tooth’s root, it gets the name ‘Root Canal’.

So, what to Expect in case of a Root Canal –

  • First and foremost step is to consult your dentist when you think you need a root canal. Then the procedures will happen successively in your other upcoming visits.
  • An X-ray is needed if your doctor suspects you may need a root canal, he will take X-rays to understand where the decay is located in case he needs to perform the root canal.
  • You will be given anesthesia, a local anesthesia in this case, so as to administer to the affected tooth. Experts say that a root canal is no more a painful procedure.
  •  An opening is made to remove the diseased tooth pulp.
  • This next needs a filling; the roots that have been opened in order to get rid of the disease pulp are then filled with gutta-percha material and are firmly sealed off with cement.

Your after care tips for a  Root Canal –

  • In many cases a restored tooth can last a lifetime if taken care properly. Generally root canals have a great success rate.
  • An important after care practice is to have a good oral hygiene. This must include brushing your teeth twice a day, and flossing at least once. This can eliminate future problems related to oral hygiene.
  • Try to visit your dentist regularly, your teeth is important to you. Have periodical cleanings and examinations done by experts and hygienists.

Many of us consider dentures to cause some trouble. But well, on actual terms, dentures are removable substitutes that can replace your missing teeth and help restore your smile. There are times when one can lose all of their natural teeth, whether due to gum disease, decay or even an accident or injury, in these cases replacing missing teeth will benefit your overall appearance and your health. This could be advisable because dentures make one to chew food easily and speak better than one could with a hollow mouth.

Sometimes when you lose all of your teeth, the facial muscles can sag and make you look older. In this case the dentures will be there for the rescue of your appearance. The surprising things about dentures are that they can be made to resemble your natural teeth to not create much of a change in your appearance. So here are the types of dentures you need to be aware of -

The Conventional

This fully removable denture is made and replaced in your mouth after the remaining teeth are surgically removed until the tissues have healed, which may take several months to get the desired look.

Immediate denture

Immediate dentures are inserted on the same day that the remaining teeth are removed. The measurements will be taken by your dentist in order to make models of your jaw during a preliminary visit. Here you don’t have to remain without teeth in the healing period, you may need to have the denture relined or remade after your jaw has healed completely.

Over-denture

In the case of over-denture, some of your teeth can be preserving to add strength and integrity to your jawbone as a support for the denture. The over-denture then fits over a small number of remaining natural teeth once they are prepared by your dentist. Even implants can serve the same purpose, too.

So here the new dentures may of course make you feel awkward in the initial weeks until you are accustomed to them. At times dentures may feel loose while the muscles of your cheek and tongue relax and repel, over time you will learn to keep them in place. There will be minor problems faced during this period and it is completely normal, as your mouth becomes accustomed to the dentures. Do regularly follow-up appointments with your dentist as it is much needed after a denture is inserted and adjusted.

If you think getting a tooth pulled out and it healing by itself is an easy process,  you are absolutely wrong. You can certainly expect to have some discomfort afterward. But that’s OK, you may say. Most of the people in their early 20’s get their wisdom tooth pulled off as it can cause serious oral problems in future, but over time it heals well. But if in case the pain becomes intense and doesn’t go away after a couple days, it then is a symptom of a condition known as dry socket, or an alveolar osteitis. This dry socket is an extremely painful and uncomfortable condition, no one would want to experience.

But on an open note very small percentage, just about 2% to 5% of people tend to develop this condition called dry socket. After a tooth extraction, of course in those who have it, though, a dry socket can be uncomfortable. Yet, fortunately, it is easily treatable.

In case of a wisdom tooth or any tooth in that case, the socket is the hole in the bone where the tooth has been removed from. After this tooth is pulled, a blood clot is expected to form in the socket to protect the bone and nerves underneath it. This sometimes can become dislodged or dissolve a couple of days after the extraction and may bleed again. This leaves the bone and nerve exposed to air, food particles, fluid, and anything that enters the mouth. This can lead to infection and severe pain from a small to a larger Impact that can last for 5 or 6 days.

Dry sockets are usually seen in people who smoke, have poor oral hygiene, get their wisdom tooth extracted or even people who experience greater than a normal trauma during extraction. So in order to avoid one, you got to avoid the above mentioned points too.

Of course you can treat and heal the dry socket situation with a few painkillers and over the counter medication, but in larger case the pain is unbearable and requires a dentists help. To fix the situation your dentist will clean the tooth socket, removing any debris from the hole that has settled while eating or drinking semi solid fluids, and then fill the socket with a medicinal dressing or a special dry socket paste to begin healing. But you might have to come back to the dentist’s office frequently for a couple days for a dressing change until the socket starts to heal and your pain reduces.

Along with this treatment, your dentist would also prescribe a few antibiotics to prevent the socket from becoming infected. We hope you take the situation a little serious and avoid activities that promote dry socket in case you are about to get one; if you are already being treated for one then we wish you a speedy recovery from SmileStation .
