Root canals are entered, their length is determined and the canal is shaped
TREATMENT WITH MEDICATION
All infected areas are cleaned
Root canals are filled, the upper part of the filled tooth is restored
What is root canal treatment (Endodontics)?
Inside the teeth, there is a small chamber (pulp) with capillary blood vessels and nerves that gives life to the tooth. This structure, which enables the teeth to grow and erupt, also acts as a warning and alarm when decay occurs.
When tooth decay breaks down the hard tissues of the tooth and progresses to the pulp chamber, toothache appears and the acids secreted by the bacteria (if left untreated) kill the pulp.
The resulting toxins (poisons) leak out through the narrow hole at the root tip and spread to the jawbone. The inflammation in the jawbone causes loss of the tooth and destruction of the surrounding tissues. Before reaching this stage, it is the best solution to remove the diseased pulp tissue to protect the tooth and surrounding tissues.
After the pulp tissue is cleaned, various procedures are applied and disinfected to purify this chamber from bacteria. As a result, this cavity is filled with special substances up to the root tip.
