MANAGEMENT OF THE DECAYED TOOTH

Even though we care so much for our teeth, sometimes we do get our teeth decayed. Treatment for decayed tooth depends on the present condition and the predictable prognosis of the tooth after treatment. However, the present day dentistry is based on the concept of Conservation of the Natural Tooth as much as possible unlike the Old Concept of Removing tooth.

The various treatment options for treating a decayed tooth are as follows:

  • Application of sealant: This is the step which has to be done first that is before the appearance of decay as an act of prevention or when you find white spots on the teeth which are the initial stages of cavity but which can be reversed on the application of sealant.
  • Fillings: Commonly called cements, these are one of the most common treatments. Fillings can be done when the decay is observed in the earliest stage that is as a discoloration on the tooth surface.
  • Root Canal Treatment: Once the extent of decay is so large that it reaches the pulp(living tissue inside the tooth), you experience severe sensitivity or pain, but the tooth structure as such is not much damaged, it can be saved with the procedure called Root Canal Treatment. This procedure involves the removal of pulp and replacing it with an inert material.
  • Post and Core Build up: When your tooth structure is damaged to the extent where it loses its strength, after the root canal procedure, a post is placed inside the tooth and the lost structure is built with the help of strong cement. This procedure is called Post and Core Build Up.
  • Extraction: The final and most avoided procedure for the decayed tooth is the removal of the tooth. This is done when your dentist feels there is no scope at all for the positive prognosis of the tooth.
