Root canal treatment is a treatment method that practices the removal of the damaged part of the infected or decayed tooth and then the tooth is disinfected and saved.

How is Root Canal Treatment Applied?

Infected nerve tissue, blood vessels and other cellular debris are removed from the root canal with endodontic treatment. Then, the root canal cavity is cleaned and shaped using canal files and disinfectant solutions. The tooth is tightly filled using tissue-friendly materials.

Root canal treatment (endodontic treatment) becomes necessary when the pulp of the tooth (nerve) is affected by deep caries or infection.

How well endodontic treatment is performed directly affects the life of the tooth. In addition, after correct root canal treatment, the color of the tooth does not change. Depending on the complexity, root canal treatment takes from 45 minutes to two hours. This procedure is performed under anesthesia and only mild sensitivity is possible after treatment.
Any endodontic treatment is carried out under a microscope and the results are monitored by X-ray immediately after the procedure.
