Indications for tooth nerve removal

Pulpitis is the most common reason why a nerve may need to be removed. Its symptoms will be: a sharp, severe toothache when biting, which does not go away for a long time and may worsen with a horizontal position and in the evening, increased body temperature and a reaction to sweet, hot and cold.

Also, the need to remove a nerve may arise under the following conditions:

  • caries damage to a large area of ​​the tooth,
  • tooth damage and enamel chips affecting the nerve,
  • prosthetics of teeth that grew at an angle,
  • excessive enamel sensitivity.

The reasons given do not always require removal of the nerve itself. This is decided by a dentist after an examination and additional examinations (if necessary).

Stages of tooth nerve removal

If, after the examination, the dentist informed you about the possible need to remove the nerve in the tooth that is bothering you, then the following manipulations are carried out:

an X-ray or CT scan is taken to confirm the need for depulping the tooth, as well as to determine the problem tooth (because the pain can radiate to neighboring ones) and the depth of the lesion (has the infection affected the periodontium);
if the need to remove the nerve is confirmed, the doctor will apply anesthesia to minimize unpleasant and painful sensations from further treatment procedures;
then it is necessary to open the pulp chamber: for this, in the presence of old fillings or carious lesions, they are removed, opening access directly to the nerve;
then with the help of a pulp extractor, the nerve bundle is removed;
after that, it is necessary to clean, expand and rinse the canals, which are subsequently sealed with hot gutta-percha;
at the end, the specialist will give recommendations on oral cavity care and tell what alarming “bells” may be present.

Normally, you may be bothered by “aching” pain for a couple of days, the tooth may react to cold and hot. If such symptoms continue for a long time, you must visit the doctor again.

The price of tooth nerve removal

The price for removing the nerve of the tooth will depend on the tooth in which the problem arose, because during the removal it is necessary to fill the dental canals so that the tooth without pulp can last as long as possible.

Your dentist will determine the final price for nerve removal. However, I would like to note that in pursuit of the low cost of such complex dental manipulations, you risk not only losing a tooth, but also getting complications in the form of periodontitis, which will cause even more complicated and expensive treatment.

Therefore, you need to choose a clinic and a doctor carefully, and not just rely on the cost of the procedure.

Removal of the dental nerve is an extreme measure that dentists resort to, because after removal of the dental nerve, the tooth becomes “lifeless” and, as a rule, its destruction begins.

Therefore, before removing the dental nerve, you should definitely find out from the dentist about the possible options for saving the tooth.

Make an appointment with QRD Dental simply today to remove a dental nerve quickly and safely or save your tooth by avoiding such a complex surgical intervention! Our specialists will definitely suggest all possible options. Call!
