If you are looking for where you can have a root canal in Mijas and it is the first time you are going to undergo a root canal, you are in the right place.

Taking care of our teeth, gums and the entire stomatognathic system is essential for good oral health. In this blog we will talk about endodontics, what it is, how the treatment is carried out and the types that exist.

Our doctors will carry out a study of each case to review your dental problems and analyse if it is the nerve itself that presents pain problems, and if so treat it through our Mijas endodontic services.

What is endodontics?

Endodontic therapy consists of partial removal (pulpotomies in primary teeth) or total removal of the dental pulp (nerve). It is applied in fractured teeth, with deep caries or lesions in the pulp tissue in which there is a characteristic symptomatology of pulpitis.

In our dental clinic in Mijas we have been carrying out endodontic treatments in Mijas for many years, with great results and managing to save the damaged tooth or teeth and rebuild them so that they look perfect.

Endodontics is applied when the patient has problems chewing and dental pain, in addition to other common symptoms such as dental inflammation.

Types of endodontics

Uniradicular endodontics

This is a type of endodontics that is carried out on the root of the tooth itself, those teeth that only contain one canal. They are usually performed on the front teeth, especially incisors.

Biradicular endodontics

A treatment that is applied to teeth that have two root canals, such as lower premolars and molars.

Multiradicular endodontics

This is the type of endodontics that is performed on those teeth on the upper molars that have more than two root canals.

How is endodontics performed?

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.

Why save a tooth instead of extracting it?

Some consequences of tooth loss are:

  • Shifting and tilting of other teeth and their possible loss.
  • For milk teeth, possible loss of space for permanent teeth.
  • Stiff jaws and relaxation problems.
  • Weakening of other teeth as fewer teeth are available for eating.
  • Speech problems.
  • Avoidance of certain foods due to chewing problems.
  • Avoidance of going out in public due to embarrassment.
  • Anxiety and shyness.
  • Eating problems.
