When teeth damaged by dental caries are left untreated, favorable conditions for the accumulation of microorganisms are created. In this situation, it is necessary to clean the root canals of the teeth. This procedure is performed with the help of a microscope.
STAGES OF DENTAL ROOT CANAL TREATMENT:
- Dental canal treatment begins with an assessment of the condition of the tooth and an X-ray image. if needed, anesthesia is used, the treated tooth is isolated from saliva in order to keep it clean and dry during the procedure as well as to prevent saliva from entering it.
- Old fillings are removed, damaged tooth tissues are cleaned, and an endodontic cavity is formed. Using special instruments infected pulp is removed from the pulp chamber and tooth root canals.
- After cleaning and preparing the root canals for a filling, the canals are filled with a special filling material called gutta-percha. The tooth after root canal treatment is usually restored with a temporary filling.
- After the Patient undergoes endodontic treatment and the dental crown is restored, the natural tooth that performs the function of chewing is preserved. Prosthetics for endodontically treated teeth are highly recommended because these restorations not only restore chewing function but also ensure strong and healthy teeth.
