People start growing teeth a few months after birth and change this first set after about seven years. Taking care of the second set of teeth became routine for most adults in developed countries. Some people have really good teeth, and don’t require much care, while others struggle fighting tooth decay, or better known cavities.
When does a person need a root canal therapy?
When left untreated for too long, a cavity can reach the nerve of the tooth. Should this happen, the individual will experience sharp pain in the affected tooth. While the pain might be controlled with painkillers, this is not the ideal way to do things. The patient should visit the nearest dentist clinic for treatment.
If a person leaves the tooth decay to reach the nerve of the tooth, he or she also allows the infection to reach their blood stream, as tiny blood vessels can also be found in the teeth. Assuming the cavity became too big an abscess got formed, it is time for the patient to receive a root canal surgery. Dubai has many good dental clinics and doctors that will ensure a successful intervention.
What does root canal surgery Dubai mean?
First of all, to treat a cavity that reached the nerve, all doctors need to follow a standard procedure. Before they start working on a tooth all dentists, including those in Dubai, will request an X-ray or the tooth. The X-ray will provide information regarding how big the cavity and the roots are, and their shape.
The patient will be given a local anesthetic, and then special tools and actions are performed to clear the cavity and to kill and remove the nerve in the tooth. Usually the dentist would have to enlarge the cavity for better access to the tooth’s roots. At the end, the canals through which blood and nerves passed are filled with various substances for which the patient should give their approval. A tooth crown can and should also be applied. These special fillings and crown serve more purposes. One of them is to strengthen the tooth.
Dubai’s dentists, just like specialists everywhere else, have access to cutting edge technologies and supplies. These allow the doctors to provide a painless treatment and a tooth that doesn’t lose its color in time. For those who don’t know, teeth that passed through a root canal treatment would darken in time, since they are now dead.
The root canal therapy Dubai has more stages, and this means the patient would have to visit the dental clinic several times, as indicated by their dentist. Some patients might need to take painkillers or even antibiotics before and after the first session, as indicated by their doctors.
