WHAT IS THE CANAL TREATMENT?

Root canal treatment is the process of removing the nerve tissue called pulp in the innermost part of the tooth, then expanding and disinfecting the canals in the tooth roots and filling the enlarged canals.

FIELDS OF APPLICATION

In cases where the cavity has passed beyond the outer layers of tooth (tooth enamel and dentin) and reached the dental pulp (nerve).

In cases where teeth nerves have been damaged due to trauma.

For patients with excessive heat-cold sensitivity or severe gum diseases.

For the treatment of teeth that cause pain during mastication.

The success rate of root canal treatments that are properly carried out in suitable environments is almost 90 percent.
A success rate of 95 % or more is possible by using advanced technologies. In cases where the root canals are blocked or if the inflammation is too much to be treated with root canal therapy, other surgical methods may be preferred to preserve patient’s natural teeth

Root canal treatment prices may vary according to the number of roots to be treated, and the number of roots can only be understood after x-rays. It may be necessary to fill the tooth after root canal treatment, and filling prices are generally charged separately. We recommend that you learn the techniques and filling information used for the channel during the price learning phase. You can call or use the information form to learn about our root canal treatment fees.

 

  • It is a solution to stop tooth ache and sensitivity problems that cannot be solved by fillings.
  • Root canal treatment allows you to keep your natural teeth in your mouth for a longer period.
  • It is an alternative to tooth extraction.
  • If root canal treatment is an option for your case, you do not need to go under other treatments such as dental implants and bridging.

 

 

  • As your tooth loses its vitality after root canal treatment, it becomes less flexible and more fragile in time.
  • There may occur a slight discoloration in the long term.
  • This method may lead to aesthetic problems, particularly for the front teeth.

In a single session and depending on the size of the filling, between 30 minutes and 1 hour (2-3 fillings can be done in the same session)

The decayed parts of the tooth are cleared under local anesthesia.

The nerve tissue is removed by using special tools and the root canals are cleaned and extended.

If there is too much inflammation in the tooth, certain medications are applied within the root and the tooth is filled with a temporary filling. The medications are renewed at certain intervals.

If there is not too much inflammation, the root canals that were extended in the first session, are filled permanently with an appropriate canal filling.

Finally, the permanent filling is applied (If the remaining tooth tissue is too thin, other processes such as crowning may be required in order to prevent fractures).

 

  • Apex locator: It is a device that provides the most reliable and accurate results in canal-length measurements and has a direct effect on the success of treatment.
  • Phosphor plate: It provides the most detailed X-ray images.
  • Rotary-reciprocal system: It helps to extend the canal roots quickly and comfortably with a 3D vision.
  • Sonic wash: It allows maximum root disinfection through vibrations.

Cleaning the caries of the tooth with local anesthesia

Removal of nerve tissue with special tools, washing and widening of root canals

If there is a lot of inflammation in the tooth, various drugs are put into the root, covered with temporary filling and dressing at certain intervals.

If there is not too much inflammation, permanent filling of the expanded canals with appropriate canal filling in the first session

Filling the tooth in the final stage (In cases where the remaining tooth tissue is thin, a coating or similar treatment may be required to prevent the tooth from breaking after the filling.)
