Treatment to avoid dental nerve pulpitis
Photos help explain the meaning of dental nerve pulpitis
Indirect means that the tooth nerve exposure did not occur but was close. Treatment choices: 1) Dental Bonding only; 2) Place dental bonding material in the deeper tooth preparation and then place a dental crown on top; 3) Root canal treatment and dental crown. The treatment choices can be made partially based upon tooth pain symptoms. If a dental nerve pulpitis occurs then the question is – based upon the size and depth of the dental caries – whether a reversible pulpitis or irreversible pulpitiis would be expected. This is largely based upon dentist personal experience because it cannot be taught in textbooks.
