What is Root Canal Treatment?
A root canal is needed when damage occurs to a tooth’s pulp. This can happen due to injury or due to severe tooth decay. A root canal is often a dreaded procedure but this can be an alternative to a tooth extraction and can be a very effective way to eliminate tooth pain. While root canals can take two or more appointments, your Dental Centre Antalya dentist (associate professor) will work to make each appointment as comfortable as possible for you; we strongly believe in practicing gentle dentistry.
The extent of the procedure and effectiveness will depend on how extensive the tooth damage is. During the root canal treatment, the area is assessed and then the damaged and / or dead pulp is removed and the area is then sealed.
