Root canal treatment is a treatment method used to repair and save a tooth that is severely decayed or infected. During root canal treatment, nerve and pulp are removed, the inside of the tooth is cleaned and filled. Early root canal treatment is important to save the tooth.
To understand root canal treatment, it is necessary to have a general knowledge about the structure of the tooth. Tooth, from outside to inside; It consists of 3 main layers: enamel, dentin and pulp. The natural space in the center of the tooth is called the root canal. Pulp is the soft tissue within the root canal. This tissue is rich in blood vessels and nerves that nourish the tooth.
When a tooth's nerve tissue or pulp is damaged, it breaks down and bacteria begin to multiply there. Bacteria can lead to an intense infection or abscess. Abscess is a pus-filled swelling that forms at the end of the tooth roots. If tooth decay is not treated, it can lead to serious conditions such as bone loss around the root.
Root canal treatment is a treatment performed by numbing the patient's teeth, so it is not a painful procedure. However, some pain or numbness may occur after root canal treatment and may even cause mild discomfort for a few days. However, some very painful or infected teeth may experience numbness problems.
