When root treatment is inevitable

Before hardly any other treatment, patients at the dentist have more difficulty than before for a tooth root. However, root treatments are often the last option to save a tooth and avoid expensive dentures. The survey is already somewhat older. However, your testimony is still valid today: In a survey conducted, two-thirds of the 1000 respondents said that in 2009 they were no longer afraid of a dentist's treatment. And clearly before the tooth extraction and drilling. A root treatment is often the last possibility before pulling - and thus also the last option before a possibly expensive dental prosthesis. "Getting a tooth always has priority," emphasized by vice president of the Federal Chamber of Dentists. In the case of complaints, dentists should always check root treatment as a possible measure, he advises. The tooth can usually be saved. Root cancers are necessary for pulp disease. Thus, dentists call the blood and lymph vessels and the nerve inside a tooth. Often, the pulp is inflamed or died, for example by caries. "Indications for inflammation are the pain, sometimes the fat cheek." Likewise, a damaged nerve in the pulp can cause discomfort caused by heat when grinding a tooth. In such a case, a pain treatment is first applied. "The dentist opens the pulp, cleans the heart of the inflammation and treats it medically". If the doctor informs that the tooth is not on a cash basis, Dr. advises the second opinion. "Another dentist may still consider treatment as a cash-in-kind." President of the Society of Endodontic and Dental Traumatology, says: "Root canal treatments are often the last option before removing the tooth." The following applies: The sooner the treatment is treated, the better. In the worst case, the damage to the pulp develops into a chronic inflammation that also affects the jawbone. In a root canal treatment, the dentist drills a hole from above into the tooth in order to get to the inner life. There he then searches the main canals of the individual root. "With fine needles and files, he opens them, removes the inflamed tissue and disinfects the canal with rinsing fluids". The root canals are tightly sealed with a root canal filling. The access is then closed. A crown then provides for the aesthetic finish. If the first treatment has not succeeded, for example, because the inflammation recurs, a second treatment can be useful. This can be necessary, for example, if not all root canals have been processed. "Anatomical features can always occur". Another approach might be that a channel has not been treated on its entire length. This can be clearly seen in the X-ray image. If the physician sees no further treatment option for recurring problems, the cutting of the root tip - the root tip resection - is the "very last way". These do not, however, combat the causal inflammation. If this measure also does not help, the tooth is often unable to be saved. In principle, dentists must be guided by the guidelines of the statutory health insurances for treatment. While for front teeth, which are usually easy to reach and often have only a single straight root canal, there are hardly any restrictions, the cash registers are very strict. "These usually have several roots and not infrequently several channels, which can also be strongly linked". The treatment is correspondingly more difficult. If, however, a tooth row or existing tooth replacement is obtained by rescuing the tooth, this is included in the evaluation. Then pay the coffers also for these treatments. Otherwise, the patient will have the option to wear his or her root treatment privately. According to Drs., the dentist makes an estimate according to the private dental fee schedule. Afterward, he gives time to think, so that the patient can weigh. This should also be the case, for a good reason: "He must pay even if the treatment fails," it is stressed. A supplementary dental insurance can be worthwhile because some policies also take root treatments. And the fear? "Under local anesthesia, root treatments are generally painless". To that extent, the fear was not founded. Dentists would have many options for stunning. A treatment at the root needs not to be a horror. Basically, the timely course in practice can often reduce pain. Then, drill fillings help to soothe the nerve and prevent inflammation. So the root treatment at the end is perhaps even completely spared.
