Endodontic Treatment For Teenagers

Endodontic treatment Tijuana focuses on lesions in the dental pulp: prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the dental pulp, the roots and the periapical area (for example, the treatment of a bag of pus).


The objective is to treat and seal the root canal system. Endodontics could be seen as the foundation of restorative dentistry, since it heals the tooth from the inside. Normally, each tooth is made up of the dental pulp (inside, the pulp cavity and the root canal system) that also contains blood vessels, nerves and tissue similar to that found under the skin. When bacteria reach this level, due to deep decomposition, large dental fractures or as an effect of periodontal disease, there will be inflammation, the pulp will be destroyed and pus will accumulate in the wound. This situation often causes unbearable pain, but it can also go unnoticed; in the worst case, accumulated pus can cause diseases such as sinusitis, endocarditis, meningitis, septicemia.


When there is inflammation in the dental pulp, endodontic treatment is the best solution to save the tooth. In the past, dentists would have extracted a tooth with pulp or severe inflammation. However, nowadays, the innovative procedures available in the endodontic department, such as the use of the dental microscope, can easily save such a tooth.









5 symptoms that indicate endodontic problems

You have continuous pain, without any obvious reason.

Your tooth is sensitive to high / low temperature.

Your tooth is fractured and the dental pulp exposed.

Your gums are sensitive when you chew them or when you touch them

The color of the teeth changes.

Drainage and sensitivity in the lymph nodes, jaws and gums.

If these symptoms are ignored and left untreated, the health of the tooth and jaw can be affected in a very short time, unless the treatment of the root canal is carried out quickly.


Endodontic treatment is a dental procedure that can be performed with permanent and temporary teeth (small children). It is important to keep the temporary teeth healthy, because they maintain the place where the permanent teeth will protrude and grow. When a child prematurely loses a temporary tooth, the teeth that are next to it will move and block the permanent tooth during its growth causing malpositions.


When is endodontic treatment recommended?

Endodontic treatment is necessary when: the dental pulp is inflamed or infected due to complicated caries, multiple dental procedures, dental trauma (crown fractures, exposure to the pulp) or any other injury. In general, most teeth in a similar situation can be saved through endodontic treatment.


Tooth extraction is necessary only if:


The root is severely damaged or fractured.

The tooth does not have an adequate bone structure in the jaw.

The tooth can not be restored.

Root channels can not be reached

The infection reached the bone or gums.

What happens once the endodontic treatment is done?


The adolescent patient may feel pain in the treated area for a while, which can be alleviated with the appropriate medication recommended by the dentist.
