Endodontics

Endodontics, known as root canal treatment, is a field of oral and dental health that treats the inflammation of the dental pulp. Drug treatment, root canal therapy and endodontic surgery are the methods used in this field. Endodontists are dentists who specialize in dental pulp that keeps teeth alive.

Which Treatments Include Endodontics

We can examine the procedures performed within the scope of endodontic treatments under two main headings: Canal and root treatments, Endodontic surgery

Commonly known as dental abscess, it is an inflammation of the pupil and falls within the domain of endodontics. Since dental pulp inflammation, which usually causes you to apply to emergency dentistry with swelling and pain, cannot be intervened when there is an abscess, the acute period is soothed with medication beforehand, and then the pulp in the dental canal can be taken. The space left from the pulp is carefully cleaned and the tooth is filled after the dental canal is filled.

Surgical applications in the field of endodontics are operations related to the roots of the teeth. There may be a wide variety of tooth root problems. Operations such as removing the abscessed root, cutting the tooth root that compresses the nerve because it is crooked or hooked, and removing the excess tooth root are the topics of endodontic surgery.

We can list the treatments performed within the endodontics applications as follows:

  • Canal treatment
  • Protective dental pulp treatments
  • Canal treatment renewal
  • Treatment of root diseases
  • Tooth root operations
  • Impacted tooth or tooth root operations
  • Post-accident dental trauma treatments

Endodontists are also physicians who help and take part in implant operations, diagnosis and treatment of jaw diseases, jaw surgeries, placement of orthodontic braces in the mouth, and whose ideas are sought.

Endodontic Treatment in Turkey

Recurrent pulpitis will cause dental abscesses whose treatment is delayed, deterioration of other teeth, damage to root tissues, and spread of inflammation in the mouth. If neglected, it can cause severe pain and the face and even the head may swell due to the abscess that starts from the root of the tooth.

Endodontics is the basis of oral and dental health. In case of deterioration in roots and tooth canals, tooth loss is inevitable. Tooth loss means oral health deterioration. Therefore, endodontics is an important science in dentistry.

Turkey is quite successful endodontic treatment. Within the scope of preventive dentistry, each mouth is first evaluated endodontically. In dentistry, the ethical perspective should be like protecting teeth. endodontics in Turkey is based on this principle.

Who are Candidates for Endodontics Treatment

Almost everyone, including babies who have started teething in their mouth, may need endodontics treatment. Endodontics, which is responsible for the relationship between tooth, root, and tooth bone, is a unit for protecting dental health. Usually it is necessary to knock on the door of the endodontics when following issues appears:

  • Tooth sensitivity problems

Endodontic treatments are painless treatments performed under local anesthesia. The general health of the patient should be suitable for treatment. Medication may be required before, during and after treatment. If you are allergic to any type of antibiotic, be sure to share it with your doctor at this stage.

Let us examine the three basic stages of endodontics treatment closely:

It is the pre-treatment examination phase. After the patient’s complaint is understood, the cause of the problem is determined at this stage. Radiographic tooth film is taken, where the root and nerve tissue is displayed, and if necessary, other advanced methods are used. The condition of the pulp, tooth root and canals should be clarified before the tooth is opened.

Before endodontics, there is nothing that the patient should do or should not do except not taking blood thinners.

The treatment will be done after the examination has been clarified and the details have been shared with the patient. After oral sterilization, anesthesia is applied and treatment is started. The procedure time, treatment and techniques to be used vary on a case-by-case basis, depending on what the problem is. To briefly summarize the endodondy procedure:

  • Oral sterilization
  • Local anesthesia
  • Opening the tooth
  • Removal of nerves, vessels, tissues and cells from the root canal
  • Cleaning and sterilization of the empty channel
  • Filling the empty canal with medical materials used in dentistry

It is important to monitor the tooth and tooth root in the first few days after endodontics. It is expected that there will be no pain. Pain may mean there is a problem with root canal treatment. Some dental canals are difficult to clean or may be nerve resistant. All such situations are normal developments in the endodontics treatment process and can be recovered.

The mild pain caused by the pressure felt during chewing will disappear within a few days. In case of severe pain that is difficult to bear, you can contact our physician.
