Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment helps protect damaged teeth. When the pulp (the soft layer inside the tooth containing the nerve, blood, and lymph vessels) is damaged to such an extent that it cannot repair itself, the pulp dies. It is usually caused by bacteria from broken teeth or deep cavities. Bacteria cause inflammation in the core of the tooth. If the damaged or diseased pulp is not removed, the tooth and surrounding tissues are exposed to infection. And in the end, you may lose your tooth completely.  

While the only solution was extraction when faced with a soft tooth layer that was sick in previous years, it is possible to treat these teeth today.  

In cases where the pulp cannot heal itself due to deep caries and cracks, the tooth loses its vitality and the infection can spread to the whole tooth. If root canal treatment is not performed, the infection can reach the tissues at the root tip. The jawbone surrounding the tooth is also inflamed and eroded. An abscess is formed in this space. This picture is accompanied by pain and swelling, and the tooth is lost in a short time.

Stages of root canal treatment

First of all, the tooth is anesthetized for a painless and painless treatment.

Then, when the caries is cleaned and the core of the tooth is reached, the diseased and soft tissue is removed. Nerve and tissue residues are cleaned.

The tooth canal is shaped up to the root tip. If necessary, the recovery can be accelerated by administering some medications.


Between sessions, the tooth is covered with temporary filling materials until the tooth heals. After it is understood that the growth of the inflammation has stopped and the inflammation from the root end is over, the canal is filled up to the root tip with a special filling material.

In some cases, these sessions are not needed at all, and it is possible to complete the root canal treatment in a single session in a healthy way.​


If the tooth is not infected again and precautions are taken to prevent decay, this filling can be used for life. You can catch the onset of infection in your regular dental check-ups. In addition, with a very good oral care, tooth decay should be prevented.
