Example text

4. Other Less Frequently Encountered Endodontic Treatment Infrequently, a multiple-rooted tooth has one or two healthy roots and one or more diseased roots. The diseased root can be removed, leaving the remainder of the tooth in place. This technique, called a hemisection, is a last attempt to save the tooth, and is usually successful. However, the cost is moderately high,and the result can be unpredictable. (FIG. 11). SUMMARY The major purpose of all aspects of endodontics is to retain the natural teeth.

It has been estimated that about half of the population could have a simple filling (restoration) accomplished without feeling any pain. The other half cannot tolerate the slight pain associated with this restorative procedure. You probably know if you have a high tolerance to pain, or a so-called high pain threshold. If so, you are fortunate, not only because dental procedures are easier but also because many slight abuses to your body are not a problem. If you have low tolerance to pain, or a “low pain threshold,” one of the following types of anesthetic is probably neces28 sary for you to tolerate some dental procedures.

GENERAL ANESTHETICS Some oral procedures are best accomplished when you are asleep, under the influence of general anesthetic. Most dental procedures can be accomplished easily using local anesthetic. Probably you have had a general anesthetic before for some type of surgical procedure on your body. You know that you were required to have some dietary restrictions before the experience. Also, you were sleepy and relatively nonfunctional after the anesthesia had worn off. However, while the anesthesia was in effect, you did not feel pain.
