What is Pulpectomy ?

A Pulpectomy is needed in the primary dentition to remove any diseased pulp tissues in the Crown area of the tooth. Once this pulp is removed the Specialists applies a disinfecting agent which acts to calm the nerve tissues still in the tooth and seals the canals. This is a treatment that is done by an Endodontist and is usually followed by a restoration such as a Crown of Composite Resin Filling.

These Restorations are also commonly known as Zirconia Superstructures, Zirconia Hybrid Denture, Prettau Zirconia Bridge, The Main Advantage to The Prettau Frame Work is the resistance to wear,Fracture and staining. We Prefer a Zirconia Vs a Porcelain Bridge because of the resistance. If you are interested in a layered porcelain implant bridge we can do this as-well but please consider the risks of the porcelain fracturing. The Prettau Bridge when applicable is the best type of restoration available for someone that wants the least maintenance possible. Full Contour Zirconia Also Known as Monolithic Zirconia Is the most recommendable option to patients.

Pulpectomy FAQ

This procedure involved the removal of certain portion of the pulp that is infected due to a number of reasons. The pulp, which is below the enamel, can get infected as the enamel was affected by decay and this decay has not gone that deep in to the tooth structure and there a chance to save the tooth without having to perform a Root Canal Therapy entirely.

As our standards are aligned globally to the best practices accepted in Canada, US and Mexico, they are performed with the utmost care and always with previous study and analysis by our specialists. The procedure involves administering local anesthesia on the area and the removal of the infected pulp of the tooth. Sometimes composite resin material is set in place after the infected tissue was removed. Some other time, patients would like to have an Inlay, an Onlay or a Crown depending the severeness of the case.

Pulpectomy Treatment Alternatives

Extraction

If you are trying to enhance the color, shape or overall appearance of your smile Crowns and Veneers would be your best bet. Depending on your bite and the position of your teeth, would depend on whether Crowns or Veneers would work best for you.

If the infection is too large and is affecting the entire pulp of the tooth, a Root Canal would be needed in order to prevent the infection from spreading to the hard tissues, etc. A Root Canal is followed by a Post and Core Build Up or a Core Build Up and a Crown.

Pulpectomy Before Coming to Cancun Pre-Ops

Inform yourself on steps to take for a successful outcome, please read the full instructions, Cancun Dental Specialists Thanks you in Advanced for being an informed patient

3 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

Smoking and Dental Implants don’t go together. Why did you lose your teeth/tooth in the first place. We know smoking can be difficult to quit but we insist that patients stop smoking at least 3 weeks prior to their Dental Implants. In rare cases we might ask you to quit sooner. Smoking can interfere with healing by constricting and decreasing blood flow all over the body which may prevent the wound from healing properly. Do not resume smoking after surgery until you are given permission by our Dental Surgeon.

3 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

We know you will be on vacation and the all-inclusive bar might be tempting. Please try and stay away from alcohol consumption for a minimum of 5 days prior to your procedure. Alcohol causes increased bleeding, increases the chances of infection, depresses immune functions and may interfere with wound healing.

3 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY (over-the-counter and prescribed)

Please check with your Physician about suspending any medication prior to arrival.

You will be instructed by your surgeon or patient counselor to temporarily discontinue certain medications in the weeks ahead.

Drugs containing ASPIRIN, SALICYLATES, SALICYLAMIDES or IBUPROFEN should be avoided for at least two weeks before and after surgery. Brand names are:

  • Aleve
  • A.S.A. Enseals
  • Alka Seltzer Cold Medicine
  • Alka Seltzer Effervescent Tablets
  • Advil Anacin with ASA
  • Anaprox

3 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

It is important that you maintain a healthy diet. You will be on a soft mechanical diet or some form of a modified diet tailored to your surgery. It is important that you follow these instructions! It is a good idea to stock up on protein supplements like BOOST or Ensure. Various softer foods like well cooked pastas, eggs, soup/broths, and yogurt are also good ideas. We will provide you with a list of dietary suggestions in your post-op packet as well.

2 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

  • All Aspirin and Ibuprofen products including the drugs listed on the enclosed insert.
  • All anti-inflammatory drugs (i.e. Ibuprofen) used for arthritis. (Please consult your physician prior to discontinuing).
  • All anti-coagulants.
  • Vitamin E taken internally.
  • If a medication is in question, call our office nurse.
IMPORTANT! These products may cause excessive bleeding.

2 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

  • Take a Multivitamin tablet daily. Most multivitamins contain some form of vitamin E, however this is acceptable to take prior to surgery. We do ask that you refrain from taking additional vitamin E.
  • Take Vitamin A – 8,000-10,000 units, twice a day. This has well-documented beneficial effects on surgical healing and will also fuel your immune system.
  • Take Vitamin C – 1,000 mg., twice a day. This is essential for collagen synthesis, which is part of normal wound healing. Your need for Vitamin C will increase after surgery.
  • Take Bromelain – 1,000 mg., twice a day. (Pineapple enzyme – from a health food store) This helps to relieve the swelling associated with surgery. Bromelain: This anti-inflammatory promotes healing.

1 week BEFORE until 2 weeks AFTER procedure

  • Eat healthy, regular meals.
  • Eat 2 fruits and 3 green vegetables daily (per diet instructions).
  • Eat a small amount of protein at each meal.
IMPORTANT! Your diet can aid healing remarkably and reduce swelling and pain!

1 WEEK BEFORE SURGERY

    • You may begin taking Arnica Montana
    • Take every 8 hours as directed and continue for 10 days.
    • Continue taking Bromelain as directed every 12 hours between meals. This anti-inflammatory promotes healing. As an alternative, eat fresh pineapple.

Arnica: Arnica Montana is an herb that grows wild in the Swiss Alps. Also known simply as “Arnica,” it’s been used in Europe for hundreds of years for the reduction of bruising and swelling and to shorten the recovery period after a physical trauma such as an accident, surgery or injury.

Pulpectomy Post Op Instructions

Please select a topic in order to see details.

Standards of good oral hygiene are critical for the success and functionality of the implants and restoration. The best way to prevent infection and ensure healing is to keep your mouth clean. Clean your mouth thoroughly after each meal beginning the day after surgery. Use a soft bristle toothbrush and toothpaste after meals and at bedtime. Use of a dental waterpik is highly recommended to irrigate underneath the denture to flush out debris.

Minimal bleeding is expected after this implant procedure. The best way to stop bleeding is to place a damp piece of gauze in the mouth and gently bite for 30 minutes. Rest quietly with your head elevated. If bleeding continues, use gauze for an additional 30 minutes. Pink or blood-tinged saliva may be seen for 2-3 days following the surgery and does not indicate a problem. Suture material may last 2 to 3 weeks and should be left alone. You will be asked to return to the office for a 2 week follow-up appointment. Any sutures remaining at that time may be removed at the surgeon’s discretion. Do not pull or cut the sutures yourself.

Swelling is the body’s normal reaction to surgery and healing. The swelling will not become apparent until 24 hours after surgery and will not reach its peak for 2-3 days. After this time, the swelling should decrease but may persist for 7-10 days. Swelling may be minimized by the immediate use of ice packs. Apply the ice packs to the outside of the face 20 minutes on and then 20 minutes off while awake for the first 24 hours.

Unfortunately, most oral surgery is accompanied by some degree of discomfort. If you do not have an allergy to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil) we recommend taking this prior to the local anesthetic wearing off. More severe pain may require a narcotic pain medication. Narcotic pain medication will make you drowsy, do not drive or operate mechanical machinery while taking the prescription. Alternate Ibuprofen (2 tablets / 200mg each) and the narcotic medication every two hours if needed. Once you feel like you can stop the narcotic, use Ibuprofen or Tylenol. You may also be prescribed an antibacterial mouth rinse which should be used twice daily in the first two weeks following implant surgery. Post-operative antibiotics should be taken as directed and always take entire course of the prescription. All medications should not exceed the recommended dosage.

NOTE: If you are taking PLAVIX or COUMADIN, do NOT take Ibuprofen or Aspirin products.

After General anesthetic or I.V. sedation, start with liquids. While numb, patients should avoid hot liquids or foods.

  • If the corners of your mouth are stretched, they may dry and crack. Your lips should be kept moist with an ointment such as Vaseline.
  • Sore throats and pain when swallowing are not uncommon. The muscles get swollen and the normal act of swallowing can become painful. This will subside in 2 to 3 days.
  • Stiffness of the jaw muscles may cause difficulty in opening your mouth for a few days. Do not force your mouth open. Massage the muscles and apply moist heat.
  • With upper jaw implant treatment, you may develop bleeding from the nose. This is usually a temporary finding and will not persist past 2 to 3 days. Avoid blowing your nose for several days.
  • An appointment with your general dentist may be needed within a few days of surgery to make any adjustments to your temporary denture.
  • Your case is individual as no two mouths are alike. Discuss all questions or concerns with your oral surgeon or implant coordinator.

  • Patients with previous infections in that area.
  • Smokers, Uncontrolled systemic health problem, such as, but not limited to; Diabetes, autoimmune disorders, severe osteoporosis, or any condition required long steroid use. If smoking or a medical condition is suspected as the cause of implant failure or other complication that requires treatment, an examination and blood tests will be required for warranty to apply.

  • Patient come back at least once to have their Restoration maintained and checked

Travel

  • We do not cover Flight and Airfare, Will can cover Hotel at Sotavento, Flamingo, NYX Hotel, Grand Royal Lagoon, BeachScape Kin Ha, Villas Marlin depending on Availability

I would recommend 100% Guarantee against component failure. That liability rests with my selection of manufacturer.

In order to keep this guarantee in effect, you must agree to the following:

  1. You will allow us to perform the necessary therapy, in conjunction with your restorative dentist, to eliminate your oral health problems, and restore your bite.
  2. If it is determined that you “clench” or “grind” your teeth, you will allow your restorative dentist or us to fabricate a bite appliance for you.
  3. You will wear any necessary bite appliance as prescribed.
  4. You will be faithful to the checkup and cleaning schedule which your restorative dentist and we feel is most appropriate to ensure your long term oral health.
  5. You will not smoke. This implant warranty is void for smokers.

If you agree to and abide by the provisions of this warranty, the warranty will remain in effect for your lifetime. However, should you violate one of the provisions listed above, the warranty will be void.

A lifetime guarantee cannot be offered on implant supported overdentures or hybrid or fixed bridgework, as such prostheses often require replacement of worn teeth over time. Tooth replacement in these instances does not require implant removal or replacement.

Dental implant is not fit and forget and is affected by the home care, the health of the surrounding tissue and the prognosis of the remaining dentition. Yearly inspection is necessary. For the peace of mind, patients can take out private dental insurance cover for the implant treatment for the first few years. After 5 years, the chance of failure is very remote. My own implant has been in function for 20 years !

Dentists are not likely to do something which are going to fail! I can only tell my patients that the implant treatment will be carried out with my best ability, using the current knowledge and technology. But with the biologic and science, we are always dealing with probability and there is always a chance of failure, no matter how small.

Absolute contraindications

Some serious general conditions make anesthesia, surgical procedures and the overall placement inadvisable.

  • Heart diseases affecting the valves, recent infarcts, severe cardiac insufficiency, cardiomyopathy
  • Active cancer, certain bone diseases (osteomalacia, Paget’s disease, brittle bones syndrome, etc.)
  • Certain immunological diseases, immunosuppressant treatments, clinical AIDS, awaiting an organ transplant
  • Certain mental diseases
  • Strongly irradiated jaw bones (radiotherapy treatment)
  • Treatments of osteoporosis or some cancers by bisphosphonates

Relative contraindications

Other situations will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Most often, dental implants can only be placed (with the greatest caution) after some preliminary treatments.

  • Diabetes (particularly insulin-dependent)
  • Angina pectoris (angina)
  • Significant consumption of tobacco
  • Certain mental diseases
  • Certain auto-immunes diseases
  • Drug and alcohol dependency
  • Pregnancy

Age

  • Children: not before the jaw bones have stopped growing (in general 17-18 years).
  • On the other hand, advanced age does not pose problems if the patient’s general condition is good.

Local contraindications

Some conditions or physiological changes, usually inside the mouth cavity, may temporarily prevent the placement of dental implants. Most of the times, these conditions can be remedied before the implants are inserted in the jawbone.

There is insufficient bone to support the implants or bone structure is inadequate (due to some chronic infections or other conditions). To ensure a good prognosis, a dental implant must be surrounded by healthy bone tissue.

A dental implant must be surrounded by healthy bone tissue (with red)

Important anatomical structures such as the maxillary sinus, the inferior alveolar nerve (located inside the mandible), have an abnormal position that can interfere with the dental implants.

Lowering of the maxillary sinus

Adjunctive surgical procedures have to be performed before the placement of dental implants. These procedures aim to increase the amount of bone, so more bone is available to support the implants.

  • Some local diseases of the oral mucosa or alveolar bone can temporarily prevent the placement of dental implants until the conditions are treated.
  • Hypersensitivity or other allergic reactions ; rarely occurs.
  • Poor oral hygiene.
  • Bruxism or involuntary grinding of the teeth.

Most surgeons will charge extra for this service, even though the cause of the failure is commonly due to their own surgical error. If we have to remove one of our implants, not only will we replace is absolutely free, but any corrective procedures required will also be performed at no cost.
