What is Root Canal Treatment?

The main goal of a root canal or endodontic treatment is to eliminate an infected tooth without having to remove it. Dental hygienists become endodontists when they specialize in these procedures and are often given +to having their own opinions and thoughts about ways to improve the welfare of their patients, not complicated by reason.

In the mouth, the root canal is the part of a tooth that you will find in the center of a tooth. It includes the central canal of the tooth, the pulp chamber, and a set of connective tissues. A root canal infection may develop in the center of the tooth. Endodontic therapies scrub the place out. Then, the dentist loops inside the canal they have reformatted to keep it clean and sealed. The goal is to prevent any new infection. In most cases, a crown is placed over the tooth.

What Happens If You Leave an Infected Root Canal Untreated?

Infected teeth may cause inflammation that progresses to other areas in the body, including the head and neck. When the infection descends into deeper tissues, it can cause blood poisoning (Sepsis; a.k.a.: blood poisoning). Blood poisoning can cause death if treatment is unsuccessful, and the chance of death is higher if the infection spreads to any body part.

How Do You Know If a Root Canal is Infected?

  • Random pain in teeth, especially at night.
  • If you have any swollen areas of your mouth, gums, or tongue.
  • Change of color on teeth
  • Sensitivity to external stimuli such as hot-cold or contact of teeth.

Who May Benefit from Root Canal Treatments in Turkey?

Root canal treatment is chosen for the following cases:

Bacteria have infected the teeth in the past, resulting in fractures that may or may not lead to cavities. Certain genetic factors and injuries have caused children’s cavities to cause chips or cracks in their teeth. The clamp that fell on the tooth may cause a complication in between another organ, as sometimes inflamed gums cause tooth abscesses.

Is root canal therapy painful in Turkey?

A local anesthetic will numb the tooth, ensuring the patient will not feel any pain during treatment. In complex cases where a needle might be painful, we have the option not to use a syringe. We also have facilities for patients who cannot tolerate dental injections or are on anti-anxiety medications.

How many sessions does root canal treatment take in Turkey?

When the root tip of a tooth is dead, we must insert material or a foreign body into the tooth’s root to kill the bacteria that have invaded the area. If the tooth is not alive, there can be swelling inside and outside the mouth. An aseptic material is injected into the tooth’s root to treat such cases, and the swelling subsides. This can enable the tooth to heal.

We start at the forefront and slowly drill down to the pulp during this process. Between sessions, we insert temporary filling that will help the teeth continue to function. The process typically takes several sessions.

How Long Does It Take to Have a Root Canal Procedure in Turkey?

It depends on the complications; however, it generally takes an hour for the whole procedure to finish.

How long does the Root Canal last?

Drilling with the removal of the dental pulp, a root canal, a root filling, and a crown can last indefinitely. If the patient consults with their dentist at appropriate intervals, their good oral hygiene will properly maintain this dental work and prevent infection of the tooth’s structure.

Can I Have Root Canal Procedure More than Once in Turkey?

The appropriate standards must be followed to ensure the wall of demineralization does not close the gap. For patients who don’t care for their teeth, root canals now take much longer and require additional treatment. Therefore, if these patients do not pay enough attention to oral care, other problems like further infections can occur in those teeth and roots.

Because of inadequate oral care, a person can constantly have a bacterial invasion in their tooth as they develop. Once their tooth is infected, it becomes prone to rot. Once this occurs, the root canal-treated tooth will decay again, forcing a person to undergo a new procedure.

When the bacteria reach the central root canal, a root canal procedure will be performed again. After that, we will fill it with filling material and close it.

Root Canal Treatment Steps in Turkey

The first step before beginning an implant is collecting information about the tooth’s location. The tooth is anesthetized, which replaces the blood, and the area around the tooth is determined to be where the implant is to be placed.

A dentist removes the tonsils and middle portions of these tonsils. During this process, lots of blood drips. The dentist then drills down to the pulp chamber using ultrasonic equipment. All of the soft tissue around the roots area is removed. Antibiotics can be used along with the usual bactericides to appropriately destroy any bacteria and infection at the root canal surfaces. Once that process has been completed, medication is taken by swallowing or empirically by placing pillows around the sealing patient’s mouth and the space below their chin. The patient is given post-operative instructions and expected to follow them. The sealing period can last longer than usual if there are high infections. When treatment has been completed, the tooth will be filled or crowned.
