In order to better understand what root canal treatment is, let’s briefly talk about the tooth structure. The visible part of the tooth in the mouth is called the crown. The part embedded in the jawbone is called the root. The crown consists of enamel (outermost layer), dentin and pulp (nerve) tissue. The root of the tooth consists of cementum, dentin and pulp tissue from the outside to the inside. The enamel tissue, which is the outermost layer of the tooth, is very hard and there is no pain sensation because there are no nerve extensions in this layer. Tooth decay starts from the enamel layer. Tooth decay, which exceeds the hard and durable enamel tissue, begins to progress faster when it reaches the dentin layer. The dentin layer is softer than the enamel, and tooth decay that progresses to the dentin causes pain. When the caries tissue exceeds the dentin tissue and reaches the pulp, severe pain begins in the tooth. Root canal treatment is necessary for the treatment of tooth decay that has reached the pulp tissue.

What is root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment is a treatment method applied to save teeth that have damaged pulp tissue due to caries, inflammation or trauma. With this treatment method, the damaged pulp tissue inside the tooth and tooth roots is cleaned with the help of special tools. After the pulp tissue in the tooth canal located in the tooth roots is cleaned, the tooth canals are shaped and purified from microbes. Afterwards, root canals are filled using special canal filling materials. Thanks to the developing technology, the application of root canal treatment has become extremely comfortable for both the practitioner and the patients. Even teeth with crooked roots can be treated easily when appropriate equipment is used. Since the root canal treated tooth no longer has nerves, it does not cause pain.

How is root canal treatment done?

First of all, the tooth is anesthetized with local anesthesia, the caries of the related tooth is cleaned. After reaching the pulp tissue, the patient pulp tissue is removed. With the help of special tools, the channels in the root of the tooth are cleaned and expanded. By using a number of disinfectant solutions, the channels are washed and kept sterile. Afterwards, canal filling materials are placed in the canals that are dried with the help of special cotton pallets. In appropriate cases, the root canal treatment of the tooth is completed in a single session, and the tooth cavity caused by caries can be closed with filling materials in the same session and the treatment can be completed on the same day.

In cases of severe inflammation, additional treatment sessions may be required.

Is root canal treatment a painful procedure?

Root canal treatment is a treatment that many people fear and postpone due to the fear of pain. However, today, thanks to the developing technologies in the field of root canal treatment, this treatment is performed both very quickly and painlessly.

Should root canal treatment be applied to every decayed tooth?

No. Root canal treatment is not required for every decayed tooth. The dentist aims to preserve the pulp tissue and vitality of the tooth. However, if caries or toxins caused by caries reach the pulp tissue or if the pulp tissue is opened due to tooth fracture, these factors cause irreversible problems in the pulp. In these cases accompanied by severe pain, the only treatment required to save the tooth is root canal treatment.

How long does root canal treatment take?

Root canal treatment requires a series of processes such as anesthetizing the tooth, cleaning the caries, cleaning the pulp tissue, shaping and filling the root canals and then filling the tooth. The production time of these works is an average of 1 hour in total.

Should I have my tooth crowned after root canal treatment?

What to do if root canal treatment fails?

The probability of failure is very low when root canal treatment is performed in accordance with all rules and under sterile conditions. However, although the dentist performs a very good treatment, infection may develop in the root canal treated teeth, albeit with a low probability. In these cases, it can be treated again by making the necessary dressings to save the tooth.

Will I have pain in my tooth after root canal treatment?

There is usually no pain after root canal treatment. However, in some cases, a slight pain may be felt when pressure is placed on the tooth. These pains, which can be controlled with simple painkillers, will completely disappear in a few days.
