2 Potential Dental Treatments For Reversible Pulpitis
Pulpitis happens when pulp material, which contains blood and nerve cells, becomes inflamed inside the tooth's root canal. The inflammation is typically caused by a dental infection such as gingivitis or trauma to the tooth. If caught early, the pulpitis can be reversed without permanent damage to the tooth. This is called reversible pulpitis and is treatable with restorative dentistry techniques. If left untreated, the inflammation can worsen and cause irreversible damage that can threaten the life of the tooth.
