Care for dental trauma and deep caries

In case of deep caries or dental trauma

odontoiatria d' urgenza
Dr. Lenci deals with dental root canal therapy at his dental clinic of Naples.
Root canal treatment
The dental pulp is the tissue that contains the blood vessels and nerve tissue of the tooth. The dental pulp is in the canal that runs inside the tooth and stretches through the root canal up to the apex of the root.
When the tooth is damaged by:
 
  • trauma
  • deep caries
Bacteria can attack the pulp by penetrating the tooth. In that case, there is often a very painful inflammation, (known as pulpitis), which leads to loss of vitality of the tooth.
In these cases, it is necessary for the dentist to intervene with root canal treatment otherwise you risk a tooth abscess.
Even in asymptomatic cases (where there are no painful symptoms), toxins of the bacteria can damage the supporting bone, resulting in more severe cases of tooth loss.
Treatment of caries
Root canal treatments are much less invasive once you are unable to remove the decay, which, starting from the outer surface of the tooth continues until it forms a cavity. If it is not stopped in time, the decay can reach and damage the pulp of the tooth
Treatment of dental trauma
In the event of an accident, trauma caused to the teeth can damage the dental pulp, and this also calls for root treatment.
