What Is Acute Pulpitis?

Pulpitis is a prevalent condition characterized by the inflammation of the innermost tissue within the tooth. This condition often arises due to various factors, such as teeth grinding or the presence of cavities, which can introduce irritants and bacteria into the root. Acute pulpitis treatment is usually done through medications, tooth extraction, or root canal.

This bacterial invasion triggers an infection that causes the pulp to become swollen and inflamed. The confined swelling leads to significant pain as there is no outlet for its release. It’s important to address pulpitis quickly in its early stages. Failure to intervene can result in the worsening of inflammation, requiring more invasive interventions like a root canal or, in severe cases, tooth extraction.

To mitigate the risk of pulpitis, practicing effective dental hygiene and maintaining regular dental visits are often recommended. In cases where pulpitis reaches an irreversible stage, the inflammation advances, causing the pulp tissue to succumb and resulting in the condition known as “pulp necrosis”.

Types of Acute Pulpitis

Infections of the pulp mainly fall under two primary types:

Reversible Pulpitis

In its initial stage, a pulp infection presents as reversible pulpitis. This type is typically marked by sensitivity to hot, cold, or sweet foods and beverages. Patients may also experience sharp pain that subsides once the stimulus is removed. Thankfully, as long as the root of the tooth remains viable, it can be restored to its normal state.

Treatment often involves a straightforward visit to the dentist, who usually fills the underlying cavity. By repairing the cavity, the tooth regains its health and functionality.

Irreversible Pulpitis

When left untreated, reversible pulpitis can progress into irreversible pulpitis. At this stage, the infection intensifies and may pose potentially severe consequences. Patients afflicted with irreversible pulpitis often describe persistent, throbbing pain that persists even after the cessation of eating or drinking. Furthermore, additional symptoms like fever, chills, or a rash may indicate the spread of the infection.

In such cases, immediate professional assistance becomes necessary. Failure to seek treatment can result in the formation of an abscess, which poses a significant threat to the tooth's vitality and can cause damage.

Options to Treat Acute Pulpitis

When dealing with reversible pulpitis, the primary objective for your dentist is to eliminate the underlying cause. This typically involves removing the decayed portion of the tooth and sealing it with a standard filling.

In cases of irreversible pulpitis, more extensive treatment is necessary to remove the infected pulp tissue. The available treatment options include:

Risks of Acute Pulpitis

Pulpitis can spread and cause infection or an abscess if treatment is ignored. Other risks include:
