Estediş Oral and Dental Health Endodontics (Canal Treatment)
What is Endodontics?
Endodontics is also known as canal treatment. Pulp is a form of treatment that cannot be repaired. The pulp is a soft layer of the inner part of the tooth and composed of the vessel-nerve pack. Generally, bacteria in broken teeth or deep caries cause inflammation of the pulp. If the inflamed or damaged pulp is not removed, it causes infection in the tooth and surrounding tissues and the tooth is lost.
How is the root treatment done?
- The first stage begins with anesthetic anesthesia for painless treatment.
- Then the rotten is cleaned and the inflamed pulp is removed. Remove all nerve and tissue debris from the root canal.
- The canals are widened to the root end and channel irrigation is performed with appropriate solutions.
- If more than one session is to be treated, appropriate drugs are put into the channels and the recovery is accelerated and temporary fill is placed between the sessions.
- When recovery is achieved, the channels are filled to the root end with a special filler.
How long does the canal treatment last?
This depends on the condition of the tooth. In some cases, a healthy filling may be performed in a single session, or in some cases more than one session (until you are sure that the tissues are healed) can continue.
Is it a Painful Therapy?
Since the local anesthesia is applied to the tooth to be treated, no pain is felt.
How long is the life of the tooth treated?
A tooth treated with a canal can be used for life after taking measures to prevent tooth decay and infection. However, regular dentist control is essential in this process.
What are the post-treatment care recommendations?
First of all, it is important to take care of your oral and dental care, to brush your teeth regularly and to use dental floss. Taking good care of your teeth will help you avoid new problems. You will then need to visit your dentist regularly for dental cleaning and checks.
