Pulpitis is an inflammatory disease that affects the nerve of the tooth. Treatment of a tooth with pulpitis usually consists of removing the pulp. The tooth no longer receives the necessary elements and is considered dead.

Pulp inflammation does not arise from anywhere. The main cause of the disease is caries. If you do not engage in treatment for a long time, then acute pulpitis will occur. The disease is accompanied by severe throbbing pain. A person should immediately consult a dentist.


Launched caries is the main cause of pulpitis. Pulpitis is much more difficult to treat than caries. With an advanced form of the disease, it is not always possible to save a tooth. Pulpitis reasons:

  • poor quality dental treatment;
  • poor quality of preparation of teeth for prosthetics;
  • gum disease (periodontal disease often leads to the formation of a deep periodontal pocket in which pathogenic microorganisms develop).

In rare cases, pulpitis occurs due to trauma and damage to the tooth. It is important to cure pulpitis at the first stage, otherwise it may be impossible to save the tooth. Do not postpone a visit to the dentist and treat caries on time.


In dentistry, pulpitis treatment consists of a surgical or biological method. The chronic form of the disease is accompanied by a dull pain and lasts for several years. Chronic pulpitis is divided into the following types:

  • fibrous – accompanied by a deep carious cavity;
  • gangrenous – leads to pulp atrophy;
  • hypertrophic – draining of carious and dental cavities.

Chronic pulpitis under the filling is accompanied by severe acute pain. Depending on the type and stage of the disease, the dentist determines the method of treatment. Pulpitis diagnosis and treatment is carried out in the following ways:

  • Biological. It is only possible if the patient consults a doctor on time. The nerve can be saved, the pulp is treated with a special antibacterial agent.
  • Surgical. The pulp is removed in whole or in part. Basically, dentists use extirpation – the removal of tissues affected by caries, an X-ray to determine the length of the canals and their location, cleaning and filling the canals.

Pulpitis of a single canal tooth is often treated surgically. In the initial stage, you can stop the disease and save the tooth.
