Indications for endodontics

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp of the tooth is inflamed or infected (due to deep decay, repeated dental treatment or a crack or fracture of the tooth).
If the inflammation or infection of the pulp is not treated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.

How is it performed ?

The endodontist begins with a clinical and radiological examination of the tooth to be treated.
It consists in emptying the canal, cleaning and sterilising it and finally filling it to prevent the risk of recurrence and thus preserve the tooth.
The treatment is performed under local anaesthesia. A sheet of latex (dyke) is placed on the tooth as a surgical field in order to be in optimal aseptic conditions.
The treatment is carried out in several stages during one or more sessions, it depends on the difficulty of the treatment.
The basic steps of a non surgical endodontic treatment include :

  • Access to the canals of the tooth through an opening in the centre of the tooth (access cavity)
  • Pulp removal, cleaning, disinfection (use of liquid disinfectants and ultrasound), drying and shaping of the canals using fine instruments
  • Sealing the canals : the canals are sealed with a gutta percha (a kind of thermoformable plastic) and root canal cement which moulds the internal anatomy of the tooth, sometimes the removal of the diseased pulp portion is sufficient when it is not completely affected
  • Checking the quality of the filling by radiographic control.

The opening is temporarily closed with a sealing material. A visit to the dentist is necessary to make a permanent filling by means of a crown, filling or other.


After endodontics performed in Egypt, the patient will feel a little pain as the infected area was disturbed outside the end of the roots in addition to the pressure of applying the root-filling.

At what age opting for endodontics ?

The decision to undergo endodontics is not based on age but rather on the specific dental condition and the feasibility of saving the affected tooth.
However, there are some considerations regarding age and endodontic treatment :

  1. Adolescence and adulthood : Endodontic treatment is commonly performed on adolescents and adults of all ages. When a tooth's pulp becomes damaged or infected, it can cause severe pain, sensitivity, and swelling. Root canal therapy is often the preferred treatment to alleviate these symptoms and save the tooth.
  2. Elderly patients : While age itself is not a determining factor for endodontic treatment, elderly patients may have additional considerations such as overall health, medication use, and the presence of other dental or medical conditions. However, as long as a patient is healthy enough to undergo dental procedures and the affected tooth can be successfully treated, age alone should not preclude endodontic treatment.
  3. Primary teeth : Endodontics can also be performed on primary (baby) teeth in certain cases. If a primary tooth is severely decayed or infected, root canal therapy may be recommended to save the tooth until it naturally falls out and is replaced by a permanent tooth.
  4. Case-by-case basis : Ultimately, the decision to undergo endodontic treatment is made on a case-by-case basis, taking into account factors such as the patient's dental health, the condition of the affected tooth, the feasibility of treatment, and the patient's preferences. Dentists and endodontists will assess each situation individually and recommend the most appropriate course of action.

In summary, endodontic treatment can be pursued at any age when it is deemed necessary to save a tooth affected by infection or inflammation of the pulp. The decision should be based on the specific dental condition and the patient's overall health, rather than age alone.

What to eat after endodontics ?

After undergoing endodontics, it is important to choose foods that are gentle on your teeth and won't cause discomfort or damage to the treated tooth. Here are some suggestions for foods to eat after endodontics, but you should always discuss it with your dentist :

  1. Soft foods : Stick to soft foods that are easy to chew and won't put pressure on the treated tooth. Examples include mashed potatoes, scrambled eggs, cooked vegetables, and soft fruits like bananas and applesauce.
  2. Smoothies and shakes : Blended drinks are an excellent option because they are soft and easy to consume. You can make smoothies with fruits, yogurt, milk, and protein powder for a nutritious and satisfying meal or snack.
  3. Yogurt and pudding : Dairy products like yogurt and pudding are soft, creamy, and gentle on your teeth. They also provide calcium, which is beneficial for dental health.
  4. Soup : Enjoy warm soups with soft ingredients like vegetables, noodles, and lean meats. Opt for broth-based soups rather than chunky or spicy varieties that may irritate the treated tooth.
  5. Ice cream and gelatin : Treat yourself to soft desserts like ice cream, gelatin, and pudding. These soothing treats can help alleviate any discomfort and provide a cool sensation.
  6. Cottage cheese and soft cheese : Soft cheeses like cottage cheese and cream cheese are easy to eat and provide protein and calcium. Pair them with crackers or soft bread for a satisfying snack.
  7. Oatmeal and soft cereals : Start your day with a warm bowl of oatmeal or soft cereal. These options are easy to chew and can be customized with fruits, nuts, and honey for added flavor.
  8. Pasta and rice dishes : Enjoy pasta dishes with soft sauces and cooked vegetables. Similarly, opt for rice dishes that are easy to chew and won't irritate your teeth.

It is essential to avoid hard, crunchy, or sticky foods that could potentially dislodge temporary fillings or cause discomfort to the treated tooth. Additionally, be sure to maintain good oral hygiene by gently brushing and flossing around the treated area and following any post-operative instructions provided by your dentist or endodontist. If you have any concerns about your diet after endodontic treatment, consult your dental professional for personalized guidance.
