Dr. Dholakiya regularly treats traumatic injuries that cause dislodged and avulsed teeth, which are teeth that have been completely displaced from the socket. Treatment plans vary on a case-by-case basis, with factors like the extent of the repositioning of the teeth playing a role.
Since children’s teeth are less mature than adult’s teeth, the treatment methods to save children’s teeth are different. Dr. Dholakiya performs the following procedures on children:
Apexogenesis: This procedure entails applying medication to the soft tissue in instances where the nerve is exposed but is still healthy. The goal is to promote the continued development of the root. As the child gets old, the tip, or apex, of the root continues to close, and the wall of the root canal thickens.
Apexification: In this procedure, the diseased pulp is removed. Dr. Dholakiya then applies medication into the root to cause the formation of a hard tissue near the root tip. This creates a protective barrier for the root canal filling. As a result, the root canal walls won’t continue to grow which makes the tooth susceptible to fractures. Therefore, proper restoration of the tooth is essential.
