Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

The outermost part of our teeth is a hard enamel layer, underneath is a softer dentin layer, and the innermost part is the tooth’s nerve tissue. Nerve tissue starts from the top of the tooth and continues along the root of the tooth in the canals. It is this nerve structure that gives sensation to the tooth. When the decay that starts in the tooth is neglected or ignored, the decay progresses and reaches the nerve tissue. This is a situation; Sensitivity to heat, cold in the tooth causes pain that occurs when you press on it. In such cases, the nerve of the tooth is removed, this process is called root canal treatment. Our expert doctors in our dental clinic make this procedure most suitable for you.

Treatment of the canals is done under anesthesia. The tooth is cleaned of decay, then the nerve tissue inside the tooth is removed with fine hand tools. The remaining gaps are filled with special substances.

Depending on the condition of the tooth, root canal treatment may sometimes take one session, sometimes two or three sessions. However, if there is inflammation in the nerve tissue of the tooth, the duration of the treatment session increases and sometimes the treatment may need to be supported with antibiotics.

Root canal treatment is a different treatment than filling your teeth. In the treatment of the canal, the nerves at the roots of the tooth are removed and the gaps in the canal are filled. Dental filling is the filling of the material loss caused by decay in the crown of the tooth, that is, the surface that we can see in the gum. Composite dental fillings, porcelain fillings or porcelain crowns are placed on teeth treated with canals. After the treatment of the canals, the teeth become uncomfortable, so making a porcelain filling material or crown instead of a composite filling material is a more conservative treatment.
