Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal Treatment

If a dental nerve is damaged by decay, blow-trauma or any other reason, the body accepts this non-living nerve as a foreign material and creates inflammation. In such a case, it is necessary to remove the nerve and fill it with a filling material without leaving any gaps. This process is called root canal treatment.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

If a dental nerve is damaged by decay, blow-trauma or any other reason, the body accepts this non-living nerve as a foreign material and creates inflammation. In such a case, it is necessary to remove the nerve and fill it with a filling material without leaving any gaps. This process is called root canal treatment.

 

Is the root canal treatment a painful procedure?

Root canal treatment is a treatment performed by anesthetizing the patient’s tooth, so it is not a painful procedure. However, some very painful or infected teeth may have numbness problems and in this case, the tooth can be anesthetized using advanced numbing methods.

 

How long does root canal treatment take?

Depending on the condition of the tooth, root canal treatment can be done in one or two sessions. For an infected tooth, several sessions may be required to ensure that the infection is completely eliminated. An uncomplicated root canal treatment is usually completed in a single session.

 

Does a tooth hurt after root canal treated?

During root canal treatment, the nerves of the tooth are removed, so a tooth that has had root canal treatment is not affected by external stimuli. After the treatment, there may be slight pain or sensitivity in chewing for the first few weeks because the tooth needs time to heal like every tissue in our body.

 

What should I do if my pain does not go away?

If the pain still persists in the future, the canal filling may be incomplete or insufficient. In this case, the root canal is cleaned and refilled by removing the canal filling, which is usually called ‘retreatment’. If there is no result from this treatment, the tooth can be treated with a surgical method called “root tip resection”.

 

How can my tooth be restored after root canal treatment?

If the root canal treated tooth is one of the anterior teeth or if there is a small amount of material loss, the tooth can be reconstructed with a filling. However, a crown is usually needed on the posterior teeth. Some teeth need a substructure to be supported before a crown is positioned. This infrastructure is called “core”. “Post” is used to keep this infrastructure in place. A part of the filling material in the root canals should be removed and a place for the post should be prepared.

 

Is it possible to whitening teeth that have changed color due to root canal treatment?

The whitening substance is placed inside the tooth by the dentist and the whitening substance inside the tooth is changed by the dentist at intervals of 1-2 days until the desired result is obtained.

The result is usually excellent and takes an average of 1 week. In this type of whitening, it usually takes a long time for the color to return to its original color.
