Endodontics means root canal treatment. Root canal treatment is applied in cases where the part called pulp, which contains the nerves and vessels of the tooth, is damaged in the inner part of our teeth. Dental nerves can be damaged and lose their vitality due to tooth decay, trauma or gum problem.
In this case, infection occurs in the pulp chamber. With time, the infection progresses and it can come to a point where you can lose your tooth.
Following the X-ray and examination, local anesthesia is first applied for root canal treatment. This ensures that the patient does not feel any pain during the treatment. If there is any decay in the tooth, it is cleaned. If there is no decay, a path is prepared with the necessary filing to reach the pulp from the center of the tooth and the pulp is reached. The canals up to the pulp and root tip are thoroughly cleaned with appropriate tools and devices designed for root canal treatment. They are washed and dried with appropriate solutions.
First the canals, then the pulp chamber and finally the tooth filling, the treatment is successfully completed. Afterwards, if needed, it is covered with a crown and it is ensured to be used for many years.
