In modern day dentistry conservative dentistry is said to be the way forward, as suggested by the term, the practice refers to the conservation of teeth. There are two main methods used by dentists: fillings and root canal treatment.
These are necessary when a tooth is damaged by tooth decay and dental caries and a hole appears. These should be treated as soon as possible to avoid any further changes to the appearance and functionality of the tooth. The dentist will take many aspects into consideration when choosing the material of the filling, including the size, visibility and location of the hole.
ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
This treatment is necessary when a large hole appears in a tooth, the nerve ending in a tooth dies, the patient has severe toothache or when the surface of a tooth is filed down to leaving the nerve ending exposed. A single tooth can have up to 3 or 4 roots, each with its own root canal containing the nerve surrounded by capillaries and veins. When a tooth is damaged it is these that need to be removed, disinfected, the canal widened and when sterile must be sealed. This process is often considered a separate branch of the dentistry profession. In most cases the technique allows the tooth to be saved and although it can also be expensive, this treatment is less costly than tooth replacement procedures and also doesn’t affect other teeth.
