Preguntas frecuentes después de la finalización del tratamiento de endodoncia

¿Qué debo esperar después de mi tratamiento de endodoncia??

El tratamiento de endodoncia ya ha finalizado.. El sistema de conductos radiculares se ha sellado de forma permanente. sin embargo, la superficie exterior se sella con una restauración temporal. A follow-up restoration must be placed to protect your tooth against fracture and decay. Some teeth require only a filling, while others require a crown (cap). Please telephone your restorative dentist for an appointment. A complete report of treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. Included in your treatment is a follow-up examination to evaluate the progress of healing. This appointment will require only a few minutes of your time.

Su diente es más propenso a fracturarse inmediatamente después del tratamiento de endodoncia.. Debe masticar el otro lado hasta que su dentista restaurador haya colocado una reconstrucción de muñón y una restauración protectora., usually a crown. If your tooth’s strength is seriously compromised, Dr. Schapiro o Dr. Elsner o su dentista restaurador puede colocar un poste y una reconstrucción de muñón dentro del diente. Your restorative dentist and endodontist will determine the appropriate restoration to best protect your tooth.

¿Existe algún problema potencial después del tratamiento??

  • Lower teeth and nerve injury. There is a slight possibility that nerve injury can occur during root canal surgery to the lower posterior teeth. Drs. Schapiro and Elsner are trained to assess this possibility prior to treatment and will advise you accordingly. For lower posterior teeth, the root tips may be near a nerve that supplies feeling to the lip, chin and gums. Your endodontist is trained to design your surgery to minimize the chances of damaging this nerve. Rarely, this nerve can become irritated during the process of surgery. In these cases, when the local anesthesia wears off, you may experience tingling, altered sensation or, in rare cases a complete lack of feeling in the affected tissues. Si esto ocurriera, it is usually temporary and will resolve over a period of days, weeks or months. In rare cases, these changes can be permanent and/or painful.
  • Upper teeth and sinus communication. The upper teeth are situated near your sinuses, y la cirugía del conducto radicular puede resultar en una comunicación entre su boca y el seno adyacente. Should this complication occur, it will usually heal spontaneously. We will give you special instructions if this is apparent at the time of surgery. We prefer that you don’t blow your nose for two to three days after surgery. Si tienes que estornudar, debe estornudar con la boca abierta en un tejido. You should not create any pressure in the sinus area. If you sense a complication after surgery, please contact us.
  • Post-operative infections. Post-operative infections occasionally occur. This usually requires just an office visit and examination. Muchas veces, colocarle un antibiótico durante una semana se encargará de la infección.Ocasionalmente, other follow-up procedures will be needed.
