Dr Murside Gultekin Endodontics

WHAT IS CANAL TREATMENT AND HOW IS IT DONE?
Root canal treatment (endodontics) is a form of treatment that consists of removing the nerves of the tooth as a result of damage to the part of the tooth called pulp (dental pulp) due to caries trauma or gum disease, followed by expanding and cleaning the root canals, and then filling the root canal system of the tooth.
IS CANAL TREATMENT AND AFTER PAIN?
Root canal treatment is not a painful procedure contrary to popular belief. After the anesthetic is applied to the painful tooth, the treatment of the tooth begins. Although it varies from person to person after the treatment, there may be minor sensitivities in the teeth for the first few days.
CAN CANAL TREATMENT BE DONE IN EVERY TEETH?
Root canal treatment can be applied to most teeth. In rare cases, if the root canals cannot be reached, if the root of the tooth is broken as a result of trauma, if the tooth does not have sufficient bone support due to gum disease, or because the tooth is too damaged to be restored, root canal treatment may not be performed.
HOW LONG DOES A CANAL TREATED TEETH LAST?
Teeth that underwent root canal treatment must be restored with a suitable restoration (filling, onlay, veneer). After restoration, the tooth continues to function like other teeth. However, if good oral hygiene is not provided by the patients after the treatment, the teeth may become infected again.
DOES THE TEETH WHICH HAS BEEN CANAL TREATMENT HAVE PAIN AGAIN AND WHAT SHOULD BE DONE WHEN THERE IS PAIN?
The pulp (tooth pulp, nerve) tissue of the teeth that underwent root canal treatment is removed and the oral chewing function continues as a dead tooth. But if it becomes infected again, it can cause pain again. In this case, the root canal treatment can be repeated, or if the condition of the tooth is not suitable, the decision to extract can be made.
