Root canal treatment Turkey is a dental procedure designed to treat bacterial infection at the centre of a tooth, which is called the root canal system. This is a very good alternative to tooth extraction and can be used to save teeth with severe infection. In order to do that infected contents of a root canal are removed and then filled with special material, after that toot is sealed either with a crown or if its condition before root canal treatment was quite good, with ordinary filling.
Root Canal Treatment Procedure in Turkey
Your dentist Turkey will use local anesthesia to numb the area near the tooth.
Depending on your particular condition, anesthesia may not be required, since the nerve is dead, however most dentists still employ anesthesia to help comfort the patient and put him/her at ease.
The dentist will place a sheet of rubber around the tooth to keep the area dry and free of saliva during root canal treatment. An access hole will then be drilled into the tooth. The pulp along with bacteria, the decayed nerve tissue and related infection is removed from the tooth.
The whole procedure shouldn’t be more painful or unpleasant than just having a filling. After root canal treatment in about 90% cases, treated tooth will survive for about 10 years.
Post-op instructions include looking after treated tooth when recovering, avoiding biting on all hard foods, for example apples, as well as reducing consumption of sugar and maintaining good oral hygiene.
