Molars, also known as molars, are the group of teeth in the same area, taking on the main chewing role on the jaw bow, the location is not favorable in cleaning, so it is most susceptible to worms. If the molars are worms that are not treated in time, from small deep sinuses will spread, into the pulp and damage the pulp. Understanding the causes, self-detection and progress of the disease will help you to prevent and handle it properly.

1. What is pulp? And how does the pulp become infected?

Deep inside the center of each tooth is an area called the pulp chamber. Infection in the pulp chamber can cause pain and lead to serious dental problems. The pulp of the tooth resembles the roots of the plant, which is the path for nutrients to enter the teeth. The pulp is made up of nerves and blood vessels, surrounded by a protective layer called dentures. Accompanied by dentures is a hard, outer shell of the tooth called tooth enamel. Dentures are softer than tooth enamel. Regardless of what makes the way through the enamel to the dentures, the inner marrow is at risk of infection.

2. How to recognize a molars that are deep in the pulp?

Infection occurs when pathogenic bacteria enter living tissue. The pulp in the teeth is also live tissue and therefore can become infected. This condition is called pulpitis.

Typical signs of molars deep into the pulp are pain, which especially appears and increases during chewing and sensitivity to hot or cold food and drink in the early stages, after which the symptoms of pain are increasing, the pains appear naturally, the duration lasts longer or may even aches and pains become severe in acute inflammation. The surface of the tooth is blackened, black marks can be seen in the groove on the chewing surface or any surface of the teeth.

Some patients may also experience symptoms such as fever, painful swelling in the gums, spreading to areas of the face and the appearance of soft lymph nodes under the jaw.

3. How did the infection reach the infection?

The most common way for bacteria to enter the pulp and cause infection is through cavities. Cavities are the result of acids and bacteria accumulating on the teeth in the form of a sticky substance also known as plaque. If the plaque is not cleaned regularly, cavities may appear.

Cavities begin as small holes in the enamel, but can grow if you do not go to the dentist to fill them up. When a cavity becomes larger and deeper, it can feed through the enamel to the denture. From there, just through the very short path is from the dentures that have reached the pulp chamber.

However, cavities are not the only cause of myeloid infections. Anything that weakens or disrupts tooth enamel and dentures, which come into contact with the pulp for harmful bacteria can cause pulp inflammation. Broken or broken teeth due to physical injuries can allow for infection. In rare cases, failure to follow proper dental procedures may also result in inflammation. Excessive drilling can also create weaknesses that cause tooth decay to hurt.

4. Why do molars deep into the pulp often hurt so much?

Inflammation is one of the signs of infection. Whether from cavities or other injuries, when bacteria enter the pulp, there will be a swelling reaction. Because the pulp is enveloped in dentures and enamel, inflamed tissue is retained in a hard cavity, there is nowhere for the swelling to spread away, thus creating pressure that accumulates inside the tooth, which causes a lot of pain.

5. How to handle molars deep into the pulp?

It is best to see the dentist as soon as there are the first signs of discomfort in the teeth. Tooth decay, when detected early, can be sealed early, is often less painful and low cost. Having progressed to myelitis (pulpitis) requires more complex and expensive treatments. Oral examination should be done every 6 months for the dentist to detect tooth decay early even if there are no symptoms of muscles to handle early before the worm eats into the pulp.

If unfortunately when you come to the dentist your molars have been deep into the pulp, then you will be treated according to the most appropriate procedures. Infected pulp is usually treated with a procedure for treating the pulp, also known as end-of-dental treatment. The first step is to remove the pulp, i.e. infected myeloid tissue is removed from the inside of the tooth. The dentist will clean the chamber pulp and leg marrow and fill it with a marrow weld. The last step is to seal the teeth so that no bacteria continue to penetrate. You can then choose a suitable material for tooth imaging to protect your teeth and restore an antomical shape to reest establish aesthetic function and chew.

Tooth decay treatment has a reputation for pain, but really nowadays with modern in-house treatments you will not feel that way.

Extraction of molars deep into the infected med can not or endosymosis treatment is unsuccessful.

If the infected infection is not treated, an oversthesis may form. This occurs when the infection develops and the bacteria leak out of the pulp chamber into the gap between the teeth and the jawbone. A swollen and painful area will form on the gums corresponding to the infected teeth. In very severe cases, the infection can spread to the jawbone, ears, sinuses or neck. In rare, severe cases, the patient may even have sepsis.

Thus, molars deep into the pulp are a common disease, but we can all take precautions and handle early to prevent possible complications, limit the effects of chewing and aesthetic function, enhance oral health.
