In severely decayed or broken teeth, if the inner layer of the tooth is damaged, the nerves in this layer should be removed. Otherwise, conditions such as pain and abscess in the tooth are encountered. After the nerves are removed, the inner layer of the tooth is filled with tissue-friendly materials.
IS CANAL TREATMENT A PAINFUL PROCEDURE?
Root canal treatment is an application made by anesthetizing the tooth. If the tooth is a tooth that has lost its vitality, the nerves are cleaned without the need for anesthesia. The patient does not feel pain during the procedure. If the pain persists despite being anesthetized; acute infection is suspected and the treatment session is postponed.
HOW MANY TIMES DO YOU VISIT THE DENTIST FOR CANAL TREATMENT?
The number of sessions of root canal treatment varies according to the condition of the tooth. While some teeth can be finished in a single session, some may require multiple visits.
