Dental root canal treatment in Istanbul Turkey, Cost & Clinics

Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of the internal tissues of the tooth. Following trauma or deep lesions caused by caries, necrosis of the dental pulp is highly probable.
The effect may extend to the tissues surrounding the tooth root (dental root canal),which can result in its loss. In this respect, dental root canal treatment in Turkey is well recommended as the best option to treat damaged teeth and to relieve dental pain.

What is a dental root canal treatment (RCT)?

During root canal treatment (RCT Treatment),the orthodontist removes the inflamed pulp within the root.  The root canals are then cleaned and shaped to replace the removed part with a permanent repair filling. The latter is placed using gutta-percha (natural rubber) and root canal cement.
At our partner clinics in Turkey, our surgeons apply the best techniques to meet your needs. Our therapies then ensure tooth preservation, avoiding any risk of chronic localized inflammation or the production of so-called "granulomas".

Tooth components

The tooth is structured with a visible layer forming the enamel, a layer surrounding the soft part of the tooth called the dentin, and the core of the uterine cavity which is the pulp. The latter is the connective tissue that contains the dental nerve, ensuring tooth growth. Once it has evolved, the tooth no longer needs pulp, unless its owner is alerted to the infection. However, in many cases, the patient feels no discomfort.

In what cases can endodontic treatment be carried out?

Root canal treatment, or endodontic treatment, is a procedure that removes the pulp in the case of necrosis. In fact, the pulp can become acutely inflamed, leading to pulpitis, which is characterized by intense pain. This is mainly the result of the development of untreated caries, trauma, or iatrogenic repairs.

Pulpitous treatment involves removing the decayed tissue and subsequently restoring the decayed tooth. Sometimes, it is necessary to carry out a dental canal treatment or an extraction of the tooth.

Pulp necrosis is an advanced stage of an untreated pulp tooth. As a result, the tooth will be very fragile and lose its ability to grow, necessitating radical root canal treatment. When the tooth is affected by infectious diseases or cracks and lesions, the dental pulp can also become contaminated. This in turn causes the transfer of oral bacteria to the dental nerves, leading to infection or dental abscess.

Root canal treatment in Istanbul, Turkey

In the above circumstances, RCT Treatment involves piercing the tooth to penetrate the pulp, removing it, and treating the infected area. To do this, one of the best dentists in one of the clinics in Turkey commits to performing the procedure of dental root canal treatment.

The operating steps of the treatment of the endodontic canal

The first step in root canal treatment is to examine the tooth so that the dentist understands the nature of the problem and can effectively treat it. This requires an examination of the inner oral cavity or an X-ray of the tooth to check the state of the pulp.

Then, a local anesthetic is administered to numb the tooth and increase patient comfort during the procedure. He then carefully cleans the root canal with mechanical or manual instruments and disinfects the interior of the canal. And a "dental dam" is then established on the affected area to isolate the tooth and retain saliva and other substances.

The dentist can then pierce the crown of the tooth to open it. This allows specialized dental instruments to be inserted into the chamber and the main pulp ducts to remove the inflamed or infected pulp from the area.  The remaining space will then be completely cleaned and shaped to keep room for a filling, which will replace the pulp of the tooth.

Postoperative results

Generally, the success rate of endodontic treatment is very high in clinics in Istanbul Turkey. If the teeth that have undergone RCT Treatment are well maintained, they can persist for life.

After a root canal operation in Turkey, you may experience pain. But, this pain usually comes from inflammation. Moreover, it is strongly recommended to use anti-inflammatories instead of conventional analgesics. 

If you experience intense and persistent pain, and you are unable to chew or have swollen gums, perform an emergency dental consultation with your dentist or an endodontist at one of the best clinics in Istanbul Turkey.

In fact, these situations may reflect the presence of a dental fissure or root canal damage, which then requires personalized treatment.

Even if the endodontic treatment has demonstrated its effectiveness, it is essential to follow perfect and uninterrupted oral hygiene. Thus, it is necessary to make an annual visit to the dentist, to better monitor the health of your mouth.

For root canal treatment, one or more treatments must be performed at the dentist. It depends on many parameters, such as the state of the pulp and infection. This process indeed shows excellent efficiency. However, this is an extremely delicate process. Therefore, if the results are not convincing, the dentist may have to repeat certain steps of the treatment.
