After the condition of the tooth is determined by your dentist and root canal treatment is recommended, the treatment is started and the treatment is treated in one or more sessions depending on the condition of the tooth.
First, the area to be treated is anesthetized so that you do not feel pain, then if there is caries, it is cleaned and the tooth is opened from the crown to reach the area where the nerves of the tooth are.
The length of the canal is determined by taking an X-ray.
The root canals are cleaned of bacteria and the canals are filled with a material compatible with the surrounding tissues.
Treatment may vary between 1-3 sessions depending on the condition of the tooth.
Especially in cases where the tooth is not alive and there is inflammation at the root tip, drugs can be placed in the root canals to destroy bacteria. In order for this drug to be effective, it must remain in the channels for at least 5-7 days. During this period, the tooth is closed with a temporary filling material.
In cases such as severe inflammation, the dentist may recommend taking oral medication as well.
After the treatment, mild pain or sensitivity complaints may be seen in the tooth, but this is temporary. In such cases, the best solution is to not use the side with that tooth for a few days. After a short time, it will be seen that the sensitivity has disappeared.
