Root Canal Treatment
A root canal is a procedure used to repair and save a severely damaged or diseased tooth rather than extracting it. The word "root canal" refers to cleaning the canals inside a tooth's root. In the past, root canal procedures were often unpleasant. Due to dental advancements and local anaesthetics, root canals cause little, if any, discomfort for the majority of patients. In reality, living with a rotting tooth is likely more agonizing. Alternatives to root canal therapy include tooth extraction, no further treatment, or tooth replacement with a dental implant, bridge, or removable partial denture.
The soft centre of teeth is called the dental pulp. The pulp extends from the crown, the tooth's visible portion, to the jawbone's root tip. There are nerves, blood arteries, and connective tissue in the pulp.
When a tooth is fractured, chipped, or severely decayed, germs may enter the pulp. Bacteria and rotting debris may produce a severe infection or a tooth abscess if left untreated, leading to pulp death, bone loss, and tooth loss. Tooth trauma may also cause pulp damage and inflammation. There may be swelling around the face and neck, a hole in the tooth, toothache or dental discomfort, gum swelling, and temperature sensitivity.
Root canal treatment is performed by Dr. Vaikunth Aggarwal and Dr. Saloni Aggarwal at Shanti Madan Hospital, Muzaffarnagar.
A dental filling is a restoration used to replace a decayed or damaged tooth structure. When a tooth decays, it becomes empty within. Dental fillings may seal the cavity and restore the tooth's original shape and function. When a tooth is chipped, fractured, or worn down through habits like teeth grinding or chewing on nails, a filling may restore its original shape and function.
Dental fillings begin with thoroughly examining the teeth to choose the ideal treatment. Fillings repair small areas of decay or damage to teeth, whereas crowns and implants are used to restore teeth that have been severely damaged.
Using a dental probe and caries-detecting solutions, Dr. Vaikunth Aggarwal and Dr. Saloni Aggarwal at Shanti Madan Hospital, Muzaffarnagar, may check a patient's teeth and pinpoint the location of any potential problems.
An X-ray may give you additional specifics about where the deterioration is and how bad it is.
Dental fillings may be made from various materials, each well suited to filling a cavity and sealing it to prevent additional decay and damage to the tooth. Direct composite bonding, porcelain, glass ionomer, silver amalgam, and gold inlays are all examples of possible filler materials. The location of the cavity, the patient's medical history, cosmetic goals, budget, and personal taste are just a few of the considerations that will determine the best option.
Crown and Bridges
Crowns and most bridges are fixed prosthetic devices in contrast to detachable devices such as dentures, which may be removed daily for cleaning. Crowns and bridges are glued to existing teeth or implants and can only be removed by a dentist.
A crown or cap is a dental repair that covers the tooth's accessible surface to reinforce or enhance its look. The purpose of a bridge is to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of one or more artificial teeth bonded to crowns on each side for support. Crowns and bridges are intended to fit the natural form and strength of the teeth, and they may be fabricated from various materials.
After administering an anaesthetic, an imprint is made for a temporary crown or bridge.
Then, we eliminate any decay before reducing the height and circumference of the tooth or bridge abutment teeth. Once completed, Dr. Vaikunth Aggarwal and Dr. Saloni Aggarwal at Shanti Madan Hospital, Muzaffarnagar, insert a cable that resembles thick floss into the gum pocket. The cable gently pulls the gums away from the teeth so that an exact impression can be made.
After obtaining an imprint, the crown/bridge will be constructed.
Finally, the cable is removed, and the temporary crown is placed. The patient returns a few weeks later for the permanent crown or bridge.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
One of the most common types of surgery is the removal of wisdom teeth, also called third molars.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come in. They grow in the back of your gums. People usually have four wisdom teeth (1 in each corner).
Most people get their wisdom teeth in their late teens or early 20s. By this time, most people have their other 28 adult teeth, so there isn't always enough space in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to grow properly. Wisdom teeth can sometimes come in at an angle or get stuck and only come in part because there isn't enough room. When wisdom teeth come in like this, they are called "impacted."
If your wisdom teeth are giving you a lot of pain, you should make an appointment to see Dr. Vaikunth Aggarwal and Dr. Saloni Aggarwal at Shanti Madan Hospital, Muzaffarnagar. They will look at your teeth and ask if they need to be removed.
If you have a tooth problem, you should see Dr. Vaikunth Aggarwal and Dr. Saloni Aggarwal at Shanti Madan Hospital, Muzaffarnagar, as soon as possible instead of waiting for your regular checkup. If your dentist thinks you need to have your wisdom teeth taken out, they will usually give you an X-ray. This makes it easier for them to see where your teeth are.
