Root Canal Treatments (Endodontics)
Are you experiencing toothache or swelling in the mouth? You might have more serious problems than dental cavities. You might be in need for a root canal treatment.
What is Root Canal Treatment?
The endodontics treatment, or as it is more commonly known in daily life, root canal treatment, is a procedure applied in cases where intervention with dental filling materials is inadequate for teeth that have decayed due to infection.
This treatment involves removing the living tissue called "pulp", which stretches from the inside of the tooth to the end of the roots and consists of vessels, nerves and connective tissue, as it has been damaged, infected or has lost its vitality.
Some of the possible symptoms that indicate pulp damage are:
- Intermittent and persistent pulsating toothache
- Sensitivity to hot and cold food-liquid intake
- Toothache when pressing on the tooth or chewing
- Sensitivity in the surrounding gum tissue
- Toothache waking you up from sleep or keeping you awake
You may need endodontic treatment if you experience any of these symptoms. Talk to your dentist asap to avoid more severe dental problems.
What to Consider After Root Canal Treatment in Turkey?
- Avoid cold and hot foods for at least 2 hours.
- Avoid hard and shelled foods until the root canal treatment is complete.
- Keep up with your daily dental care.
- Make flossing part of your daily oral care.
- Use painkillers and sprays prescribed by your dentist.
If you have persistent and increasing toothache, request an appointment with your dentist immediately.
How Long Is the Treated Tooth Used?
If you take care of your oral and dental hygiene properly, root canal treated teeth can remain in your mouth for a lifetime. However, sometimes we unfortunately have patients who do not pay enough attention to this issue and they sometimes experience problems like decay in the root canal treated tooth in the future. This is why regular dental check-ups are extremely important.
Does root canal treatment hurt?
Since endodontics treatment is performed after local anesthesia, it is a pain-free procedure.
