What Is Root Canal Treatment?

A root canal treatment, also called endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure that aims to eliminate the inflammation or infection present in the pulp, the delicate tissue residing inside the tooth's root canal.

This process involves the careful removal, cleansing, and disinfection of the affected area, followed by filling and sealing. Contrary to common misconception, root canal treatment isn’t a painful procedure.

Besides, it offers a viable alternative to tooth extraction in cases where the latter would otherwise be inevitable.

Astonishingly, there are over 41,000 root canals performed daily in the United States alone. Both general dentists and specialized endodontists are qualified to administer root canal therapy.

This inflammation or infection of the tooth’s pulp can manifest due to various factors, including extensive tooth decay, repeated dental procedures conducted on the tooth, or the occurrence of a crack or chip in the tooth's structure.

While the duration of treatment typically spans a single appointment, some cases may require one or two additional appointments for comprehensive resolution, especially those with curved canals, multi-canals, or substantial infections.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is performed to address injuries, inflammation, or infections in the soft inner part of a tooth (the pulp).

Preserving the structural integrity of the tooth is achieved by removing the injured or infected pulp, while the visible crown of the tooth remains intact. The procedure helps correct and treat different problems, such as:

The Procedure of Root Canal Treatment

Root canal therapy encompasses a series of three crucial steps, which typically require one to three sessions for completion:

1. Cleaning

To initiate the process, the dentist administers local anesthesia to ensure the patient's comfort. Then, your dentist creates a small access hole on the tooth's surface to eliminate any diseased pulp tissue.

2. Filling

Once the root canal is thoroughly cleaned, your dentist proceeds to cleanse, shape, and decontaminate the hollowed area. Subsequently, they fill the root canal with a flexible, rubber-like material. Following root canal therapy, the tooth is deemed non-vital, as the nerve tissue responsible for pain sensation has been extracted, effectively eradicating the infection.

3. Adding a Crown

Tooth lacking pulp becomes more susceptible to fragility compared to its previous state. To safeguard the tooth, your dentist may recommend the placement of a crown or filling, which offers enhanced protection.

Risks of Root Canal Treatment

When it comes to root canal procedures, we must acknowledge that despite the great care and precision employed, there is a slight risk of potential complications, including the occurrence of new infections. Several factors may contribute to this outcome:

Cost of Root Canal Treatment in Turkey

The cost of root canal treatment is between 100-150 US dollars in Turkey. Some clinics may charge more, depending on the complexity and additional needs of the patients. Since the treatment is cheap, some patients express a desire to have additional cosmetic dental procedures to brighten their smiles. This will add to the cost. However, the overall cost of the procedure remains cheaper than in other countries.
