What Is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is a procedure designed to save the natural tooth, aiming to repair the tooth by removing the infected pulp inside the tooth and clearing the inflammation. The pulp is a soft tissue that lies beneath the white enamel and the hard layer called dentin. This tissue includes blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. It helps the growth of the root of the tooth during tooth development. A fully developed tooth can survive without a pulp by the surrounding tissues.

With state-of-the-art medical devices and patient-specific treatment planning, root canal treatment is a procedure that can be completed in one or two appointments in our clinic. It is possible to see long-term results with our dental treatments that we apply using quality materials in the laboratory at European standards. 

When Is Root Canal Treatment Necessary?

Persistent toothache, sensitivity to heat and cold, swollen gums, cracked teeth, tooth discoloration, deep tooth decay and acne-like sores on the gums are symptoms that may require root canal treatment. When the dental pulp is damaged for any reason, bacteria can begin to multiply inside the tooth. When the inflammation in the pulp is not cleared, it can lead to pain or abscess. With root canal treatment, the inflamed pulp is removed, the inside of the root canal is cleaned and the cavity is filled and closed. Support applications such as artificial crown can be applied to strengthen the tooth.

It should be noted that the best way to save a natural tooth is root canal treatment. With root canal treatment, the spread of infection to other teeth is prevented, infected tooth symptoms are relieved and tooth extraction is not needed.

How is Root Canal Treatment Performed in Turkey?

While living a beautiful life with your natural and healthy teeth, you may face dental problems such as dental caries due to various factors. Tooth decay is the most common oral and dental health problem in the general population. Different problems such as pain, sensitivity to hot and cold foods, bad breath and bleeding gums can be seen with a decayed tooth. Root canal treatment provides effective, permanent and sustainable results against tooth decay and problems related to tooth decay.

The rapid development of dentistry and medical technology has significantly increased the success rate of treatments for oral and dental health problems. Today, the success rate of treatments for decayed teeth has increased considerably compared to previous periods, and treatment techniques have gained diversity. While a decayed tooth was extracted in the past, today it can be saved with the help of root canal treatment or filling. It will be explanatory to briefly touch on the filling application together with the root canal treatment.

Filling application is cleaning the decayed area in the tooth tissue and restoring the cleaned area again. Materials such as composite and compomer are used in the filling application. Filling treatment is applied in a simple, painless and comfortable way with today's technology. With the restoration performed with the filling process, decayed and damaged teeth regain their former health. After briefly talking about the filling application, let's explain the root canal treatment and how it is done step by step:

  1. In the structure of the tooth, there are nerves that are invisible from the outside, located in the inner part, and provide nutrition to the tooth. This structure is called pulp tissue.

  2. Dental caries, which are not diagnosed and intervened early, reach the living pulp tissue over time, causing the formation of inflamed tissue.

  3. Root canal treatment is the removal of inflamed tissue with the help of root canals.

  4. Root canals are cleaned with a disinfectant and filled using certain materials. Then, the root canal treatment is completed by restoring it.

  5. When restoring the teeth with root canal treatment, composite, onlay and porcelain veneer applications can be applied according to the healthy tooth structure.

The Price of Root Canal Treatment in Turkey

Root canal treatment prices in Turkey differ according to the number of roots of the teeth to be treated. The root canal treatment fee for teeth with multiple roots is higher than the root canal treatment fee for single rooted teeth. However, the material to be placed on the tooth after the root canal treatment, whether the crown will be applied, etc. factors also directly affect the price of the root canal treatment in Turkey. Therefore, a dentist's evaluation is required to obtain clear information about prices.

In Which Situations Is Root Canal Treatment Applied?

Root canal treatment is applied in advanced dental caries and dental bone cracks. In cases where it is not possible to heal the tooth due to damage to the tooth, the pulp part is removed and the tooth is protected. This is a preventive treatment that prevents tooth loss. In this respect, the most important advantage of root canal treatment is that the dead tooth is saved and the bone structure of the tooth is not lost. Some symptoms of conditions that require root canal treatment are:

  • Swelling of the face and neck,
  • Permanent tooth sensitivity to hot – cold foods,
  • Cracked teeth,
  • Acne-like sores on the gums,
  • Pain when biting or chewing,
  • Swelling of the gums,
  • Deep tooth decay,
  • Darkened gums,
  • Reflected toothache.

Is Root Canal Treatment Painful?

Tooth decay causes the tooth to become vulnerable to external factors. Caries reaching the pulp part, that is, the tooth canals, paves the way for the development of infection in the tooth. In such a case, root canal treatment is required to save the tooth. Root canal treatment is performed before filling is applied to the affected tooth. Root canal treatment is performed under local anesthesia and does not involve a painful procedure.

How Long Does Root Canal Treatment Take?

The duration of root canal treatment varies according to the number of canals in the tooth, the position of the tooth in the mouth and the size of the infection. If there is no infection or cyst formation in the pulp, it is usually completed in a single session. However, in most cases, the treatment is done in two sessions, as there is a tooth infection. Each session usually lasts 30 – 45 minutes.

In the first session, the tooth canal is cleaned. It is important that the cleaning process is done and shaped very well. Local medicine is applied to the cleaned part of the tooth and the harmful microorganisms in the area are destroyed. In the second session, if there is no sensitivity in the patient's tooth, if there is no inflammation in the canal, if there is no disorder in the tissue surrounding the tooth, and if the x-ray comes out clean, the treatment process is completed by making a dental filling.
