Treatment of pulpitus

Pulpitis is an inflammation of a neurovascular bundle (pulp) which is located inside the tooth.

Intense tooth pains at nighttime and shooting pain, which appears under the impact of such external stimuli as heat and cold, are the most common symptoms of pulpitis.    

At the iStomatolog center, we use the most modern equipment for endodontic treatment of root canals from the world-leading manufacturers, such as MicroMega, Parkell, Kavo, Morita.

It allows us to carry out a full mechanical and medicamental treatment of root canals is just one session and to prepare them for the next stage which includes filling the root canals with endodontic pastes.

The benefits of treatment at the iStomatolog Center

  • Painless treatment of pulpitis
  • Sterilization of root canals using laser
  • Mechanical treatment of roots on modern equipment
  • X-ray control on all stages of endotherapy
  • Use of the SmartOptic microscope during the endodontic sessions

The most common symptoms of pulpitis

  • Uncaused pain
  • The pain increases during nighttime
  • No pain relief even after the removal of an irritant
  • The pain spreads to the adjacent teeth (the patient cannot determine which tooth is aching)
  • The pain can cause an echo in the teeth of the other jaw, the ear, or under the lower jaw.
  • In the case of a purulent inflammation, the patient experiences pain relief from cold food and the sharp increase of pain from hot food.
  • The presence of carious cavity is not necessary; on the outside, the tooth may seem unaffected by caries.

Stages of the pulpitis treatment 

  • Allergy test (during the first therapy session)
  • Local anesthesia
  • Opening of a carious cavity and the tooth cavity (where the nerve is located)
  • Application of a coffer dam
  • Mechanical and medicamentous treatment of root canals (removal of the nerve, clearing of the root canal, rinsing and sterilization of the root canal)
  • Filling of root canals
  • X-ray control of the procedure of root canal filling
  • Installation of a temporary filling.

What will happen if pulpitis is left untreated?

Oftentimes, we do not have time or opportunity (the usual fear is also a factor) to make an appointment with dentist even if we experience tooth pain. We take painkillers, try various natural home remedies, and heed all those “tested and 100% working” recommendations from friends and relatives. In a best-case scenario, they will not work; the effect of painkiller will fade and the visit to the dentist will become inevitable. Unfortunately, we often witness the worst scenario, when the tooth pain passes off. Believe us, it happens not due to the miraculous effect of garlic or a cotton ball, soaked in bee glue or an extract of pumpkin tails which you applied on a tooth cavity or gums; not the application of fatback or a tampon with paracetamol, not the Glister toothpaste, or even a pepper vodka. It is just a sign that the inflammation is transitioning to a new level. The so-called “temporary relief” signifies that the pulpitis is transforming into periodontitis (inflammation of the bone which surrounds the root) or a chronic inflammation of the tooth nerve.

And then the fun part begins... see the chapters Periodontitis and Periostitis

Important note!

  • The crooked or sclerous (narrowed) root canals are treated and filled under the microscope.
  • It is absolutely NORMAL, if after the treatment you feel minor pain in a quiescent state or when putting pressure on the tooth.
  • In case if there is a purulent or even gangrenous process in the root canals (sharp bursting pain and odor from root canals), the filling cannot be completed in one session. In such cases, we use a special medical liner to stop the purulent/gangrenous process which will continue in the tooth tissues under the temporary filling. In some cases, the tooth may be felt open for a few days and the soda baths can be prescribed.
