Root Canals

[vc_row][vc_column offset=”vc_col-md-9″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1544267511496{margin-bottom: 40px !important;}”]Canal treatment is the removal of a small, thread-like tissue, that is, pulp, in the center of the tooth. When the damaged, diseased or died pulp is removed, the remaining space is cleaned, shaped and refilled. With this operation,root canal is closed. Years ago, sick or injured teeth were pulled. Today, even the teeth that can be lost can be saved in the canal treatment.

The most common causes of pulp injury are:

  • Cracked tooth
  • Deep caries
  • Damage to the tooth due to severe blow to the tooth in the past or in the near future.
  • When the pulp is infected or dying, if not treated, the pus in the jawbone may accumulate in the root of the tooth. The abscess can cause pain by destroying the surrounding bone.

How make is root treatment?

The canal treatment consists of several steps that require multiple sessions. These steps include:

First, a hole is drilled on the back side of the front tooth or on the crown of the molar or molar teeth. After the diseased pulp is removed (pulpectomy), the pulp cavity and root canal are cleaned, expanded and shaped for the canal filling. If more than one session is needed, a temporary filling is made to the hole in the crown to protect the teeth between the sessions. The temporary filler is then removed and the pulp space and duct are filled permanently. A rubber material with a tapered tip, called Gutta percha (Güta Perka), is inserted into each of the channels and is usually glued in place with cement. Sometimes, metal or plastic rod can be inserted into the channel for structural support. In the last step, the crown is coated on the tooth to restore its natural appearance and shape. If the tooth is broken, post may be required to repair the tooth before placing the crown.

How long can the repaired tooth be used?

Treated and repaired teeth / teeth can be used for a lifetime with the right mouth and dental care. As the tooth may be treated again with tooth decay, oral care and regular dentist examination are necessary to avoid further problems.

Because the tooth-retaining pulp no longer exists, the treated tooth becomes brittle and more susceptible to fracture. This is important when deciding whether to apply a crown or seal to the tooth after the canal treatment.

The most commonly used method to control the success or failure of canal treatment is to compare the X-rays taken before treatment with new X-rays. This comparison will show whether bone loss persists or whether the bone is reshaped.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column offset=”vc_col-md-3″][vc_single_image image=”1061″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1538936372000{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-right: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;padding-left: 30px !important;background-color: #333333 !important;}” el_class=”need-sp”]
