What is pulpitis?

Pulpitis is a disease that is characterized by inflammation of the neurovascular fibers of the tooth, i.e., pulp. Pulpitis is quite widespread, its pathogens are streptococci and staphylococci. Often pulpitis is formed as a complication of caries. So, if you find yourself with a small caries, it is better to immediately contact your dentist to prevent the appearance of pulpitis. Normal caries cure is quite simple, but pulpitis is treated much longer and more difficult.

Signs of pulpitis

If a tooth has ached badly, then, most likely, you have pulpitis. In the initial stage of pulpitis, pain is not constant, but periodic, aching. If the pulpitis is neglected, the pain becomes very strong and prolonged, while it can also give to other organs, for example, in the ear. Exacerbation of pain most often happens at night, and the temperature may also rise.

Types of pulpitis

Pulpitis happens:

  • acute and acute focal;
  • diffuse;
  • chronic and chronic fibrous;
  • chronic hypertrophic.

How pulpitis is treated

To cure pulpitis, a doctor can use a biological method, when using drugs to relieve inflammation in order to keep the tooth alive. This method is used very rarely, most often the dentist removes the nerves of the tooth, then seals the canals and places a seal. After such treatment, the tooth may darken over time, it also becomes insensitive to pain.

Now you know what pulpitis is, which means, remembering all the unpleasant consequences, you will not delay and immediately contact your dentist, because the faster you do this, the easier it will be to cure you.
