Endodontic Treatment in Dubai – Endodontics refers to the treatments of the tooth aimed at diagnosis, treatment and protection of infections in the pulp of the tooth. Endodontic treatments are designed to eliminate any infection that takes place in the pulp, allowing the tooth to continue to function normally. Beneath the enamel and the dentine lie the soft tissues, containing the blood vessels and the nutritional supplies of the tooth known as the pulp. For several reasons, the pulp may be infected and inflamed. When this happens, a treatment where the infected pulp gets extracted becomes necessary in order to stop the spread of infection to the underlying tissue and prevent further damage. When should you consider getting treatment for your root canal.
Some of the common causes for pulp infections include:
– Untreated dental decays for prolonged periods
– Injury to the tooth
– Bruxism (habitual teeth grinding)
– Tenderness during normal functioning such as chewing
Our clinic: Providing world-class dental treatment for a higher quality of life
If you are in need of root canal treatment in Dubai, trust Dubai Sky Clinic to provide you with world-class quality dental care. Our endodontists are specialist dental surgeons who are capable of performing endodontic treatments on. The roles of the endodontists are to diagnose and treat the infection of the pulp before it widespread. Treatment of complex root canals, retreatment and endodontic surgery are the areas of speciality for endodontists.
However, the most common of all endodontic non-surgical procedures is the root canal treatment. It is necessary to drill down the enamel to reach the infected pulp and extract it to prevent further infections. However, advanced invasive surgical procedures are required to treat severe infections of the pulp. Apicoectomy is the surgical process of treating the roots and the soft tissue below the tooth.
Scrutinising the Treatment Under The Microscope
Inside a tooth, under the enamel and the dentin, the soft tissue is known as the pulp. It extends from the crown of the tooth to the tip of the roots. An extraction becomes necessary when the soft tissue inside the root canal becomes infected.
Causes Of Infection
The blood and nerve supply of the tooth (pulp/soft tissue) may be infected due to various reasons. Some of the most common causes are untreated deep decay, crack in the tooth, teeth grinding for prolong durations or injury to the tooth.
Symptoms Of Infection
Common symptoms for inflammation of the pulp include sensitivity to cold and hot, tenderness when touched, and pain during chewing, swelling and discolouration of the tooth. If the infection is left untreated, it may spread throughout the entire system of the tooth and eventually lead to tooth loss.
Our procedure for extraction in Dubai begins by providing a local anaesthetic to the impacted area. Thereafter, the endodontist removes the infection or bacteria from the root canal system. Once removed, the endodontist will clean and shape the inside of the tooth thus fills in. Finally, the tooth is sealed with a filling or a restoration material such as a crown. Our modern endodontic treatments in Dubai make it possible to save a tooth that has a diseased pulp due to inflammation or infection. By means of microscopic root canal treatment in Dubai, even teeth that have irreversibly damaged nerves can be saved and preserved, thus returning the bone to normal. Teeth can have up to three roots, where one to three root canals can be found. These are where pulp is contained. Furthermore, some of these canals are as thin as a hair. For the treatment to be successful it is essential to detect any infection or inflammation in all of the root canals and treat them as quickly as possible. One of the most revolutionary developments in the field of endodontics is the operating microscope, which provides extreme magnification. This makes it possible to identify and treat even minute structures and problem areas. Thus pain can be minimised and excellent long-term results achieved.
