Probably representatives of the older generation known unpleasant procedure of removing the nerve of the tooth, using a forgotten medicine of arsenic, and which was accompanied by pain for several days. Such memories become a reason for a categorical refusal to agree to such a procedure again. Today dentistry has changed dramatically.

The modern dental treatment provides not only maximum efficiency but minimal discomfort for patients. In order to understand why removal of the nerve of the tooth today have become a common, almost painless procedure, let us consider in detail what is the nerve of the tooth, and when it is removed.

At the root of the tooth is very important organ, which is called the pulp – the bundle of nerve endings and blood vessels of the tooth. It is this body of people called the nerve. Thanks to the pulp of our teeth can react to all stimuli, both external and internal.

Pulp removal means stopping the "connection" of the tooth, the body stops blood flow and mineralization. Denervated teeth are called "dead". It is believed that such teeth are not resistant to external stimuli, faster decay and are prone to darkening.

Actually it is not so. The life of the pulpless tooth depends mainly on the quality of treatments and care in the future. With proper treatment and high-quality filling of channels, devoid of the pulp, the tooth will last the patient for years.

In the initial phase of caries disease the caries process is at the top level of a tooth that affects only the dentin. When not treated, the caries reaches the pulp, and then the disease becomes a pulpit. In this case, the doctor decides on a partial or complete removal of the pulp. When the pulp passes to the next stage – periodontitis, complete removal of the pulp is inevitable.

There are situations when a doctor decides to remove the nerve if you have a large carious cavity, by mechanical damage to the tooth or prolonged pain in the tooth.

Good modern dentistry is not inclined to rush to depulpation patients, and try to replace it with the best treatment, but often without this procedure simply can not do.
