In the world of oral health, periodontitis is a common disease that may affect an individual's quality of life and daily comfort, as dentinitis is a health problem that affects many people of all ages, and it may cause serious health problems if it is not treated correctly and in a timely manner.

The causes of periodontitis vary, including cavities that affect the outer esmalte layer of the teeth, gum infections, deep decay, and other diseases and factors, as it is important to understand the symptoms of periodontitis and learn about the treatments available to overcome and prevent it.

Symptoms of periodontitis include excessive pain, sensitivity to heat and cold, swelling and gingival swelling, and there may be spasms in the area surrounding the affected tooth, as the pain may increase when eating hot or cold food or when chewing food in the affected area.

If neuritis is not treated, the infection may spread to nearby tissues, leading to worsening pain, swelling, gingivitis and possibly even the development of push, as therefore, treatment for periodontitis is essential, and this usually involves a procedure in which the dentist cleans the root, removes the infected tissue, and then fills the root to prevent recurrence of the infection.

Causes of dental neuritis

Dental nerve inflammation may occur due to several reasons, the most prominent of which are:

Caries: Caries is the main and most common cause of periodontitis, as when the outer esmalte of a tooth is damaged by decay, bacteria seep into the tooth and infect the living tissue inside, including the nerve.

Fracture or eclipse: A fracture or eclipse of a tooth may create a path for bacteria to infiltrate the tooth and cause nerve inflammation.

Erosion: Severe erosion of esmalte due to causes such as high acidity in the mouth or excessive consumption of acidic food and drinks can threaten the integrity of the nerve.

Surgical injury: Surgical injuries or dental procedures such as fillings or canal treatments may cause irritation and injury to the nerve.

Aging: As we age, the nerve can become more susceptible to inflammation as a result of natural wear and changes in the dental structure.

Genetic damage: Certain genetic damage or structural defects in the teeth may be a contributing factor in the development of periodontitis.

How can neuritis be treated?

Dental nerve inflammation can be treated in several ways, and treatment depends on the severity of the inflammation and the condition of the tooth, and here are some common ways to treat periodontitis:

Tooth cavity treatment (dental filling): In less serious cases, the dentist removes the damaged nerve, cleans the tooth cavity, and then fills the cavity with filling materials to prevent recurrence of infection and protect the tooth from future erosion.

Root canal treatment: In more serious cases or when the infection has progressed to the point that it affects the tissues surrounding the tooth, root canal treatment may be the ideal option and this treatment involves removing the damaged nerve, cleaning the root canals, and then filling the canals with special materials that prevent bacteria from leaking out.

Tooth removal: In some severe cases where neuritis cannot be treated successfully or where the tooth is damaged beyond repair, treatment may require removing the affected tooth completely.

Taking antibiotics: In some severe cases where a tooth infection has spread to surrounding tissue, your dentist may prescribe antibiotics to help fight the infection.

How can periodontitis be prevented?

To prevent periodontitis and maintain dental health, several steps and preventive measures can be followed, the most important of which are:

Good oral hygiene: Teeth should be brushed regularly with toothpaste and floss used to remove stains and deposits between the teeth, as it is also preferable to use an oral rinse that contains antibacterial substances.

Eating a healthy diet: Avoid eating foods rich in sugars and starches in abundance, as these foods increase caries deposits on the teeth and increase the possibility of developing infections.

Regular visits to the dentist: It is important to have periodic examinations of the teeth and gums by the dentist, as early diagnosis of cavities and other potential problems can help prevent periodontitis and other complications.

Avoid injury: A mouthguard should be worn when practicing combat sports or sporting activities that may increase the possibility of tooth injury.

Avoid harmful habits: Habits such as biting nails and opening objects with the teeth should be avoided, as these habits may cause damage to the teeth and increase the possibility of developing infections.
