Antalya endodontists are highly trained root canal specialists that can help alleviate painful symptoms of a tooth infection. Following a dental evaluation, x-rays will be taken to determine the location and severity of your tooth infection. Next, the endodontist will apply a local anesthetic to your gums. You can relax while the anesthetic takes effect. You should feel no discomfort during your root canal once the anesthetic has taken effect.
To begin your root canal surgery, a rubber dam is placed around the tooth to keep it dry. The infected pulp is accessed either through the back of the tooth if it’s an incisor or cuspid or through the top if it’s a molar. The following steps during a root canal involves using tiny instruments to extract the root pulp and infection. To protect the root of your tooth and the surrounding bone, a special sealant is placed into the cavity. Depending on the severity of the infection, your root canal specialist may wait to completely seal your tooth. If this is the case, they may place antibiotic gel or capsules into the cavity. Subsequently, you will have to return for a second visit for recleaning and sealing the root. Otherwise, the cavity/pulp chamber is filled in. Due to the extent of the damage done to the tooth by the infection, a dental crown is sometimes required. Other restorative work may be necessary to return the tooth to full functionality.
