At Smile Works Turkey, we offer root canal treatment to correct complex dental concerns at competitive rates.
A root canal which is also referred to as endodontic therapy, is a procedure that treats internal tooth infection. Mouth bacteria which is responsible for cavities, is also the cause of tooth infection. Root canal typically comes to the rescue when there is a case of tooth decay. However, other dental concerns like a tooth injury or damaged filling can bring about the need for a root canal.
When a root canal is infected, it causes severe pain, and patients do go through a heightened tooth sensitivity even when foods or drinks are not consumed. Worse still, an abscess can develop from the infection, causing swelling on the face. Getting treated by an expert endodontist early enough is recommended. Because we know the level of pain and how relieved patients can be when they receive root canal treatment, our clinic offers emergency root canal treatment Turkey. What this implies is that should you be in need of quick relief from the pain, don't hesitate to come in for a consultation at Smile Works Turkey.
Not every patient is quite settled when it comes to getting a root canal treatment. However, if a specialist armed with a careful and meticulous technique offers the treatment, the pain should be minimal. For the majority of cases, the feeling of discomfort should be nothing more than what is experienced when a filling is performed.
First, the dentist administers a local anaesthetic to give the area surrounding the infected tooth zero sensitivity to pain. As at when the anaesthetic kicks in, the team will use a dental drill to remove all parts of the infected tooth. The dentist will touch all important parts of the tooth, including the enamel, bone, pulp and root canal, while removing affected tooth areas. The root canal consists of blood vessels and nerve tissue and is situated right in the middle of the tooth.
After getting rid of all the midsection of the tooth, the hollow is covered up with a fine formula. At last, following the extent to which the exterior tooth layer was taken out, restorations like onlays or crowns will be used to cement the tooth and remake the surface for chewing.
Most of the time, an initial temporary restoration (onlays or crown) is given to patients at first to be replaced with the real permanent treatment after a number of weeks.
It is advised that patients avoid eating any food that is tough or sticky after getting a root canal, particularly at the time when they are using the temporary restoration. The couple of days that follow the treatment may see you experience high sensitivity to hot or cold foods. Over time, the sensitivity will drop.
Just so the bacteria that causes the infection doesn't have a chance to develop again, patients should up their dental hygiene practices. This is important for both the treated tooth and the remaining teeth. Brushing and flossing the other teeth is possible. However, if you cannot floss easily after the procedure, speak with your dentist.
Bear in mind that following a root canal, the tooth that has been treated will be numb. But if cared for properly, it can still be in the best health state together with the remaining teeth for a long time with zero problems.
