The disease of tooth tissue sclerosis is called odontopathy. Generally speaking, dental disease also includes dental pulp disease Dental caries is a common disease, which is caused by multiple factors in the oral cavity. Dental disease is generally manifested as the loss of inorganic minerals and the decomposition of organic minerals. With the development of the disease, the color of teeth is easy to turn yellow, and the texture of teeth is easy to become brittle
What are the causes of toothache?
1. Bacterial infection.
Microbial infection of bacteria is the most important pathogenic factor of dental pulp disease. Bacteria are mainly facultative anaerobes and obligate anaerobes. The ways of bacterial infection include through tooth defect and periodontal infection, etc The periodontal infection of
refers to the infection caused by the broken gums around the teeth
2. Chemical stimulation.
chemical stimulation generally refers to drug stimulation. Some chemicals can easily remove inorganic minerals from the tooth body or pulp, such as phenols, which can stimulate the pulp and even erode the teeth and cause dental cavity. There are some filling chemicals in
, which can even cause tooth loss and affect normal pronunciation in severe cases
3. Physical stimulation.
physical stimulation generally includes temperature stimulation, electric current stimulation and traumatic stimulation. Physical stimulation may lead to pulp congestion, bleeding and inflammation.
can stimulate dental pulp if there are two different metal restorations in the mouth On the same day, the change of air pressure also had some influence on dental pulp. In high-altitude aircraft or deep-water diving, the change of air pressure can cause acute attack of dental pulp lesions
How to identify dental pulp pain?
1. The time of pain was different Dental pulp pain cycle, the nature of toothache as well as the number of attacks and the duration of each pain are different. Due to the relationship between food cold and heat and chewing food, whether the pain location is fixed or released has a certain range. It can effectively identify whether it is toothache or pulpalgia, whether the pain is related to body position, and whether it will affect sleep Whether there is a history of toothache in the past and whether it is the same as this pain can be identified
is used to check whether there is any cavity and the location and depth of the cavity. The first thing to check is whether the cavity penetrates the pulp, and the reaction to the cold, hot and electric activity test If there is no caries in the teeth, we should check whether there are other hard tissue lesions, whether there are periodontal pockets and whether the teeth are loose. If necessary, we can take X-ray film or do open pulp examination
3. pulp disease can be divided into chronic pulpitis, acute attack of chronic pulpitis and acute pulpitis, etc. chronic pulp disease refers to the history of spontaneous pain or long-term provocative pain, examination can show caries near the pulp or pulp, periodontal disease and other hard tissue diseases There are chronic pulpitis symptoms, recent severe spontaneous pain, cold and hot stimulation can cause or aggravate the pain, called the acute attack of chronic pulpitis.
acute pulpitis refers to the occurrence of accidental trauma or recent tooth surgery, there are cold, heat excitation pain and spontaneous pain
Dental pulp pain should be treated separately. When toothache occurs, it is necessary to distinguish whether it is toothache or endodontic pain. Only in this way can reasonable methods be used and the treatment time can be greatly shortened If you don’t know where the pain is, don’t casually relieve the pain. You need to ask the doctor in time. Patients with frequent toothache should insist on brushing and gargling, which can relieve toothache to some extent
