Does it hurt to treat the teeth — front, upper
Does it hurt to treat teeth? The degree of pain depends on many factors. The great value has a disease that is cured, the degree of neglect, the availability of anesthesia, the individual characteristics of the person. Baby teeth can also hurt, and treatment is able to cause the child much discomfort.
Features of deciduous teeth
Some believe that to treat milk teeth is optional. This proposition is false: milk teeth can also hurt, in need of skilled medical care.
Hurt to treat milk teeth? In modern dentistry it rarely is a real pain, but discomfort is possible. Note that children are still not able to stand the pain, so even a slight discomfort can cause a lot of dissatisfaction.
If the tooth must be removed, with dairy a lot easier. Since they have less roots than the permanent, and to pull them easier. In addition, the roots of milk teeth is thinner — nature has taken care of a relatively painless loss. Therefore, milk teeth are very easily removed, you do not even always require anesthesia.
Treatment of permanent teeth — it is much more troublesome. At least because to remove them several times harder. In addition, in adults the likelihood of developing diseases increases: it is affected by age, bad habits from childhood, excessive consumption of sugar, years of improper care.
If we talk about tooth decay, the modern technologies allow to cure him relatively painlessly on any tooth. The most unpleasant sensations will deliver the injection of anesthesia. If the treatment is performed by means of a drill, the person can be hurt. Moreover, a longer treatment time. It is also worth remembering that running to treat the disease is always harder, longer, more troublesome and unpleasant. In the case of neglected tooth decay is the destruction of the enamel to deeper levels, affecting the result of the nerve and provoking new diseases, for example, pulpitis.
What to treat teeth painful? A significant difference between the sensations in the treatment of upper and lower teeth do not exist. The same applies to the gradation of the front-rear. However, the top front teeth have one unpleasant feature — they are the reverse side is not visible to man. Therefore, a person often skips stage brown spot, which is primary, and to treat the front sometimes frustrating because of the neglect of the disease at the time of detection.
Treatment of inflammatory processes
Inflammation of the root to treat painful than tooth decay. And the treatment itself longer, and harder. Despite the anesthesia, the patient can feel severe discomfort and even pain. In case of inflammation of the root destruction occurs at a deep level, the patient is experiencing severe pain. In the tooth channel accumulates pus, which must be removed before proceeding to the next phase of treatment. Between the first and second stage treatment, the tooth will have to be kept open, as the pus needs to drain, which can be quite unpleasant. Will have to carefully ensure that the hole does not get pieces of food, avoid feeling the damaged area language. With the front teeth in this case is more complicated.
The second stage is rinsing of the tooth with antiseptic and laying temporary filling. Permanent seal put during the third stage of treatment. This process can be somewhat painful if no anesthesia, but the pain is mild, quite tolerable. In the case of the use of anesthesia the only discomfort the patient feels, is the need for a long time to keep my mouth open.
To treat this disease should be as early as possible. If time does not eliminate the inflammation of the root can begin the destruction of bone tissue, which significantly complicate the treatment.
Pulpitis — inflammation of the tooth nerve. As a rule, is a consequence of untreated caries in time. Because when the pulp directly to the affected nerves, the treatment without anesthesia is very painful. Anesthesia will need to be more powerful than in the case of caries, discomfort definitely will. If anesthesia is delivered is insufficient, the pain can be quite strong.
In the first stage of treatment, the doctor drills out the decayed tissue, remove all of the nerve tissue from the affected tooth. Then put a temporary seal at first and then, if further complications are not expected, constant. The seal can be supplied without anesthesia at all, that might hurt a bit, either with local anesthesia that virtually eliminates any discomfort.
Removal of Tartar
Tartar — the hardened plaque untreated. It should be treated as early as possible, as this disease can cause tooth loss. There are different ways of removing plaque: mechanical, chemical and ultrasonic. The mechanical method can be quite painful, it is often used anesthesia. Chemical method can not only hurt patients with hypersensitivity to the enamel, but also provoke unpleasant feelings in the future. The most modern of methods — ultrasonic, when it is used there is no discomfort. However, it does have its drawbacks — this option is getting rid of Tartar is not suitable for pregnant women.
Wisdom teeth more difficult to treat than any other. Because of its location as well as curved roots, these teeth are often treated poorly, because of which complications can occur.
The removal of the «eights» can be rather long (especially in the situation when the tooth grows the wrong way, forcing seven or sprouting in the jaw bone), but it is absolutely painless.
To remove the «eights» is used a powerful anesthesia, completely blocking the sensitivity of the oral cavity. Wisdom teeth are more susceptible to caries, as to clean them quite hard. In addition, the decay on them is not easy to detect, causing the disease can reach the stage where treatment will be long and painful.
Also severe pain a person can experience during the eruption of the «eight». In that case, if the tooth grows the wrong way, presses the «seven», it is better to remove in order to avoid problems with the seventh tooth. Due to the specific structure of «eight» between the seventh and eighth teeth often get stuck bits of food, leading to the formation of caries.
In addition, the possible occurrence of pericoronitis (inflammation of tissues). To treat this disease first apply a special medicine, and in the event of ineffectiveness of surgical intervention. In addition to the above, there is a method of laser therapy, which is not only completely painless, but also has analgesic effect on damaged tissue. Laser therapy is a course of 7 to 10 days.
Periodontitis — a disease that causes inflammation of the gums and tissues, responsible for the fixation of the tooth. In advanced cases, perhaps the loss of teeth. The choice of treatment depends on what stage the disease is. At the initial stage helps the removal of Tartar, which has already been described above.
If there has been a significant deepening of the periodontal pocket need surgical intervention. Apply local anesthesia. Acute pain will not occur, but discomfort is possible.
