Causes and Symptoms of Pulpitis

Pulpitis is the inflammatory condition of the dental pulp, which is the innermost part of the tooth, often occurring due to untreated tooth decay that penetrates deep into the pulp tissue. Additionally, pulpitis can result from other causes such as trauma or severe injury to the tooth, significant damage to the tooth, or the aging process.

Symptoms of pulpitis typically include toothache, throbbing pain, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, swollen gums, and bad breath. If not treated promptly, pulpitis can lead to complications such as infection, inflammation of the tooth’s root canal, or even tooth loss.

To accurately determine whether pulpitis is present, you need to visit a dentist for an examination and dental X-rays. If pulpitis is detected early, the dentist can proceed with treatment to save the tooth and prevent complications.

WHEN IS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT NEEDED?

Root canal treatment is necessary in cases where the dental pulp is damaged, infected, or inflamed.

Common clinical symptoms include toothache, sensitivity to temperature and food, swelling, and pain while chewing.

When the dental pulp is inflamed, and symptoms begin to manifest, patients should contact a dentist for consultation and immediate treatment to prevent the spread of infection, safeguard the health of the tooth and gums.

    Diagnosing and Treating Pulpitis at Vix Dental Clinic

    At Vix Dental Clinic, we employ advanced and effective methods for treating pulpitis to help patients restore oral health.

    Firstly, our dentists will diagnose the condition of pulpitis using X-rays and clinical symptoms. Testing the vitality of the pulp or using electrical pulp testing may be conducted to determine whether your tooth pulp can be restored!

    Treating Pulpitis

    The method of treating pulpitis will be determined and executed by the dentist based on the initial diagnosis.

    If the diagnosed pulpitis is likely to recover, eliminating the cause may be sufficient to heal the pulp tissue. For example, if pulpitis is caused by tooth decay, removing the decayed tooth tissue and restoring it with a dental filling can address the recoverable condition of pulpitis.

    If tooth extraction due to pulpitis is necessary, the dentist may recommend prosthetic treatment options. This approach allows patients to have a complete set of teeth without compromising the functionality of their dental structure.

    With modern technologies such as 3D scanning and 3D printing, the production of prosthetic teeth is becoming more streamlined and faster.
