Devital tooth and root canal treatment

What is a devital tooth?
The root canal is the space between the tooth and its root.

This channel consists of the tooth pulp (dental pulp), which is a branched structure that is located in the center of the tooth.
The root canal contains blood vessels and nerve branches.
Children’s milk teeth must also be devitalized if they are infected.

Symptoms of a tooth to be devitalized

The tooth needs to be devitalized if any of the following symptoms appear:

This is the most common symptom that occurs in patients.
Toothache is felt especially when chewing or drinking cold or hot drinks and this condition certainly requires dental treatment.
The tooth is sensitive to cold or heat for a few seconds, then the pain gradually subsides.
In addition, tooth pain can also occur when the tooth is touched (with pressure).

Caries of milk teeth in children and their treatment: what parents need to know

Baby teeth with caries in children need to be healed. Some parents’ approach "You will fall out anyway, there is nothing to torture a child and spend money" is a crime against baby’s health.

Timely treatment of tooth decay of deciduous teeth is even more important than treatment of permanent teeth. And here’s why:

  1. The normal teething of permanent teeth and the bite formation largely depends on the health and the timely change of milk teeth. A full set of baby teeth makes the right jaw size. If they are destroyed by caries and fall out or are removed prematurely, the jaw cannot be shaped properly. It is very likely that in the future there will be a wrong bite or a curvature of the teeth, their unsightly place. As a result, a child who has not been cured in a tooth is paid for with braces at the most when it is mature, and at worst with staggered teeth with psychological complexes.
  2. Caries on milk teeth can be complicated by pulpitis and periodontitis, which can cause cysts in the root zone, and by the germ of a permanent tooth.
  3. Running tooth decay is often a reason for ridicule in the children’s team.
  4. Also, do not forget that the appearance of tooth decay is a sign of violation of the rules of oral hygiene, improper nutrition or lack of minerals in the diet and sometimes – a symptom of problems with the immune system. If you ignore these problems at the beginning of your life, you can get through to the middle of your child without healthy teeth and with a number of related diseases.
  5. With the premature removal of chewing gum teeth, the child is unable to chew normally. As a result, an insufficiently processed lump of food will enter the gastrointestinal tract, which can lead to indigestion.

Treatment of sensitive teeth

Every eighth adult has sensitive teeth. This can be very painful when it comes to drinking or eating cold or hot food. If the thought of biting on a popsicle pulls you together, it’s time to change your habits, change your diet, and let your dentist know about possible treatments.

Use a toothbrush with soft bristles.

It may appear that a medium or hard brush will make your teeth cleaner, but with such an abrasive brush the tooth enamel can wear out. When the enamel is worn, the teeth feel sensitive because the dentin has been exposed. The dentin contains nerves in small dentine tubules, which are immediately stimulated by external factors such as hot and cold liquids. Switch to a toothbrush with soft bristles that cleans your teeth just as well without causing further sensitivity problems or injuring your gums. Apply gentle pressure and remember that performance is nothing compared to good technique.

Balanitis and balanoposthititis

Balanitis (inflammation of the glans) is a skin disorder that affects the glans of the penis and causes swelling, redness and discomfort.
Balanitis can be acute (usually heals fairly quickly) or chronic (lasts longer than a few weeks).

When an illness is described, the terms "acute" and "chronic" refer to the period over which it is suffered, not the severity of the illness.
You can also suffer from balanitis, which occurs again and again after treatment.

This is known as recurrent balanitis.
Balanitis does not cause impotence (erectile dysfunction) because it does not affect the circulation of the blood.
This disease affects both children and adults.

Broken tooth

On broken tooth arises from external action on the tooth structure, which breaks as a result. In many cases, a dentist can treat such tooth fractures by reconstructing the tooth. Treatment varies depending on the type of fracture.

What is a broken tooth?

A broken tooth is a fracture, chipping, splitting or cracking of a tooth (infracture). A knock, blow, bite on something hard, accident or deliberate pressure on the tooth by instruments during tooth extraction are triggers of the so-called tooth fracture.

Broken teeth occur both with milk teeth and with permanent teeth. The affected person perceives the tooth fracture due to pain or injuries in the oral cavity. Injuries result from the sharp edges of the broken tooth.
