As we have explained above, the first thing we do in our clinic before performing our endodontics in Mijas is to make a diagnosis of the affectation. To do this, we have to study the symptoms in detail, such as gingivitis, tooth pain, tooth decay, etc. If our doctors establish that the pain is due to trauma or caries, they must know the extent of the lesion. For example, in the case of a cavity, check whether it has affected the nerve and if so, it will have to be treated.
This treatment will have to be carried out in different sessions, which in total can take between one and two hours in the case of more damaged patients. First of all, the dental area to be treated must be treated with local anaesthesia in order to eliminate the cavity and weaken the nerve that is causing the infection. The tooth is then cleaned and disinfected along all the root canals of the tooth to sanitise the already infected area, removing the delicate tissue.
Once the tooth is free of bacteria, a filling will be made inside the dental pulp to prevent the tooth from being affected again by any type of affection, filling any tissue and sealing the tooth from possible infections.
