What is dental pulp?

The concept of endo-dental (ENDO) is the treatment of the root of the tooth (dental denervation), which in general terms is called dental denervation. Endodontics or root canal treatment is a specialized dental treatment based on which the root of the tooth is preserved and it diagnoses and treats dental pulps. Root canal occurs when there is a large amount of tooth decay in the tooth and the tooth needs root canal treatment.

What is the tooth nerve?

  Most of the tooth structure is dentin. There are a number of nerves and capillaries in the inner space of the dentin, which is called the pulp. Dental pulp is responsible for dentin formation, defense against microbial attacks and sensation. In cases where the internal soft tissue becomes infected and this infection is transferred to the parts around the root of the tooth, in which case the person feels pain and discomfort. Next, for the treatment, the dentist fills the dental canal with special dental materials by cleaning the pulp. Normally, anterior teeth have one root, small molars have two roots, and large molars have three to four roots. By taking proper care of your teeth and periodic dental examinations, you can properly preserve your teeth.

What causes damage to the pulp?

Lack of timely treatment to eliminate tooth decay causes damage to the pulp. Microbial penetration into the dental pulp gradually destroys the tooth enamel and dentin and causes infection and inflammation. Violent blows and failure to observe and take care of the teeth while eating snacks and edible nuts will also be among the causes of damage to the pulp. Gum infection and gum disease will also damage the pulp.
