The most common gangrene cause is the cavity. With cavity progressing towards the inner part of the tooth, bacetria reach the pulp. When this happens, it means the pulp is infected and thus it is necessary to have an endodontic treatment.

If it happens that in this phase a tooth is not treated in a proper manner, it is likely that the root infection will spread to the bone above the tooth root.[/top_dentist_page_heading][vc_custom_heading text=”Dental gangrene – the clinical picture” font_container=”tag:h3|font_size:36px|text_align:left|line_height:1.25″ use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_class=”color-primary” css=”.vc_custom_1537444915932{margin-bottom: 20px !important;}”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1537444962858{margin-bottom: 35px !important;}”]The most common dental gangrene clinical picture is that the infected tooth was aching before and that at one point the pain was released.  It is exactly this clinical picture that deceives patients and gives them an excuse not to visit the dentist. Procrastinating the visit and sweeping the problem under the carpet can lead to complications which will later on require much more time and effort in order to be treated.  Such complications can be different, from swollowing to the appearance of both intraoral and extraoral cysts.

Gangrene may occur with inact teeth as well, due to a trauma. In such cases the process of tissues dying is much faster as the pressure put on a tooth causes the rupture of microcirculation in blood vessels that feed the tooth. In that case we talk about pulp necrosis that in contact with bacteria turns into the gangrene.

Gangrene treatment starts with the removal of complete tooth cavity and pulp opening. This is not a painful process because the tooth pulp is destroyed.  Afterwards, the automated instruments are used to expand the tooth root and clean it thoroughly. Upon completed isntrumentation, the canal is filled with medication that helps with treating gangrenous teeth. Once the previous steps are completed, we move on to filling root canals with fluid-tight seal.

In this case too the key is in a timely visit. Infected tooth must be treated – the sooner the better.
