Once the endodontics is carried out, many questions can arise to the patient. Some issues that have to do with the reconstruction of the tooth. Will the aesthetics of the piece be lost? Will the subsequent treatment be a complex treatment? Or maybe painful? What should be the reconstruction of a tooth after a endodontics?
Some concerns that, in the vast majority of cases, have no reason to be since the post-endodontic process is a process well known to specialists and repeated thousands of times. Hence, the patient does not have to worry about.
The post-endodontic process
Once the endodontics has been carried out satisfactorily, it is the turn of the reconstruction of the dental piece. A reconstruction will depend a lot on the damage that piece has suffered as a result of caries. This makes it possible to distinguish two cases: the lesser fillings and the larger fillings.
Moderate reconstructions after endodontics
In this case, we find a filling to be made rather small. An operation that will be carried out with a material called composite. This material is none other than a special resin that has a color very similar of the tooth.
In these interventions, the properties of the composite are more than sufficient. In fact, this will be correctly fixed to the tooth after the polymerizing light has been applied and the whole process can be carried out in just one session, which makes it very comfortable for the patient.
Nevertheless, there are cases in which the reconstruction has to be much more profound. Some scenarios in which the composite isn’t, at all, the best alternative that the specialist has. This is because this material will do nothing but weaken the tooth which can favor, with time, the breakage of it.
In these cases, the specialists resort to another type of materials such as special resins or ceramics. In both cases, these materials are embedded in the tooth to avoid all the problems that the composite can cause.
To say that in these cases these materials, resins, and ceramics, do not harden inside the mouth through polymerized lights. This process is carried out in specialized laboratories. The objective is none other than to create a totally resistant structure, and that makes the tooth much stronger. This makes the patient have greater peace of mind since the probability of breakage of these materials is practically nil.
Be that as it may, in any of the cases, we must bear in mind that the process is very well protocolized. This means that the patient will not suffer any discomfort. All the implications of the treatment will be alien to him, and he will only notice the benefits of the intervention and be able to recover the quality of life that he had, at the dental level.
