In this treatment method, the nerve tissue of the tooth covered with infection is removed and the patient’s pain is relieved. With the canal treatment, both the intraoral tissues are restored and the tooth is restored and its former functions are restored.
How make is root treatment
Firstly, local anesthesia is applied and numbness is provided in the related area. Then the rotten tissue is cleaned and infected nerve tissues in the root canal are removed. The relevant tooth is cleaned with special solutions and drugs. In the last step, the channels are filled with biocompatible materials in accordance with the anatomical shape of the root canal. Depending on the degree of infection, after canal treatment, which can be performed in one session or several sessions, the patient may have sensitivity for a few days in the relevant area.

The primary goal of the physician in the canal treatment is to protect and maintain the presence of the tooth in the mouth.
