Acute pulpitis is manifested by severe pulsating pains that can give in the temporal, ophthalmic, ear region. But if earlier the only method of treating the disease was the complete removal of the damaged tooth, now dentistry has moved much further and the tooth can be saved.
Pulpitis is an inflammatory process in the very middle of the tooth, most often caused by streptococcal infection. Under the enamel and dentin is the pulp, soft connective tissue. Its inflammation brings a person a lot of unpleasant pain.
Causes of pulp inflammation:
penetration of bacteria and toxins due to untreated caries;
injuries to the tooth or gingival region;
the use of strong antibiotics.

Symptoms of the disease
In the initial stages of development, pulpitis is accompanied by short-term pain of moderate severity. In the absence of proper treatment, the inflammatory process flares up with renewed vigor, harmful fluid accumulates in the pulpar chamber – purulent exudate, which leads to swelling of the mucous membrane and intolerable, incessant pain that spreads throughout the jaw and extends to the temple, eye socket and ear region. Often, running pulpitis causes an increase in body temperature to 38-39 degrees. The consequences of untimely treatment are extremely dangerous. If you leave the disease unattended and take no action, this can lead to complete intoxication of the body and even death.
The most advanced stage of the disease is purulent pulpitis. Without the provision of qualified dental care, it will lead to acute periodontitis and the development of necrosis of pulp tissue.
After a thorough examination of the oral cavity and radiography to confirm the diagnosis, the dentist will open the pulp chamber to drain the purulent substance, thereby reducing pressure in the pulp area and freeing the dental canals. After removal of all affected areas, the pulp and dental canals will be treated with disinfectants to prevent re-development of inflammation. The gingival region and pulp gradually regenerate and restore their normal functions. All procedures are performed under anesthesia.
