What Is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment or endodontic treatment is a dental intervention conducted in order to alleviate various kinds of infections. The main goal is to save the infected teeth without extracting them. Dentists specialized in root canal treatment are known as endodontists. The first phase of their service usually consists of a careful examination of the patient. Depending on the subsequent diagnosis, they may decide to prescribe a canal treatment.

The root canal is an area situated in the root of a tooth. It comprises the main canals, a pulp chamber (in the coronal section), and a set of connective tissues. Sometimes, an infection may develop in that central part of the tooth and affect the pulps and nerves. Endodontic therapies allow to clean them out. They are performed under local aesthetic. Once the target area is decontaminated, the dentist reshapes the inside of the canal and seals it up. In most cases, a crown is placed on the restored tooth. The end goal is to prevent any further bacterial infection.

A root canal treatment is a dental emergency procedure that aims at restoring normal teeth functions via the elimination of threatening infections. Cavities, cracks, abscesses, and other complications are treated thanks to a thorough cleaning of the tooth root at risk. As a world-renowned medical tourism destination, Turkey stands out also in the field of endodontic practices.
