Root canal treatment is an essential dental procedure to save an infected, sensitive, unhealthy and damaged tooth. You may need a root canal when bacteria infect the root of your teeth where live tissues are present. During this treatment, the dentist will apply a dental disinfectant to the affected root canal to kill bacteria and treat the infection.
This treatment may also be necessary during a Smile Design. Your dentist may have to straighten crooked teeth, which may result in sensitivity, creating the need for a root canal to neutralise the nerve in the root canal.
Root canal treatments require a qualified endodontist. An endodontist is a specialist in endodontics, a branch of dentistry that deals with the root canal and its treatment. An improperly done root canal treatment can cause further discomfort and tooth loss in the long term.
We understand the importance of root canal treatment at New Teeth Clinic Turkey, and our endodontist will ensure the procedure is done properly.
Our root canal treatment is painless and quick, so you can be free from tooth sensitivity or discomfort caused by an infected tooth.
Before the root canal therapy, our dental specialist will determine the length of your dental canal with an x-ray. The dental professional will apply anaesthesia around the affected tooth and treat the tooth.
The specialist will drill the tooth down to the pulp area containing the root canal and soft tissues. They will remove all the soft tissues from the pulp chamber and then apply medications to remove bacteria and treat the infection. The specialist will close the tooth using a temporary filling.
In normal circumstances, the temporary filling will remain for 5 – 7 days to give the medication tome to work, but if the infection is advanced, you will need the medication in place for a longer period or another appointment to add more medication. After the treatment, the dental professional will fill the teeth or place a crown over them.
The treated tooth will remain healthy with proper dental care by brushing the teeth, flossing regularly, and visiting the dentist for professional dental cleaning and check-up.
The dental professional will administer local anaesthesia to numb the tooth and surrounding tissues to prevent pain during the treatment. If you are sensitive to needles, our dental specialist can use a needless injection, and our facility is fully equipped to carry out root canal treatment for people with dental phobia.
Mild pain in the first few weeks after root canal treatment is common, especially if you had vascular treatment in a living tooth. But the pain is less than dealing with an untreated tooth, and there is also the risk of losing an untreated tooth.
Avoid touching the treated area with your tongue to prevent slowing down your healing process and exposing the treated tooth area.
A root canal treatment at New Teeth Clinic Turkey will prevent the spread of infection and tooth loss. If you experience tooth sensitivity or pain and need a root canal treatment, visit our clinic or call us to schedule an appointment with our endodontist.
