tooth Resorption

Reabsorción es un término general para lo que ocurre cuando una parte del cuerpo absorbe o atrae en otra parte. A tooth resorption refers specifically to the inflammation and loss of dentin (tejido interno) o el cemento (material exterior) a la absorción.

There are three main types of resorption that may happen to a tooth:

Cervical resorption, which affects the area where the tooth meets the gum. This type of resorption is commonly associated with a history of dental trauma, orthodontic treatment, or internal tooth whitening.

Internal resorption, where “the pink area,” which holds the tooth’s nerves and blood vessels, gets enlarged and dissolves the tooth from the inside out. Este proceso finalmente deja el hueco del diente, que debilita y lo hace susceptible a daño y el deterioro. El primer signo de reabsorción interna un paciente nota es por lo general un tinte rosáceo al diente, which shows that the internal tissue is affected.

Apical resorption, where the tooth’s root(s) begin to dissolve. This is a normal process when baby teeth are replaced with adult teeth. But when external resorption occurs in an adult tooth, it is a problem. In these cases, the outside root or crown of a permanent tooth is absorbed, que puede conducir a la pérdida de dientes, infección, cambio de los dientes, y otros problemas de la boca y la mandíbula, a menos que reciba la atención dental oportuna. Si no se trata, the tooth could be lost.

Opciones de tratamiento para la reabsorción del diente

Muchas veces, resorption can be treated with a root canal procedure. En algunos casos, surgical care may be required. A highly trained endodontist such as Dr. Verma would be the best person to discuss this with.
