Endodontists in Antalya offer root canal surgery, a treatment that can remove an infection from the interior of a tooth. A tooth infection can cause pain and even an inability to talk, smile, or eat properly. The pressure against the tooth’s root and nerves near the infection can cause severe pain and discomfort. In addition to pain, an infected tooth can cause oral swelling, an infection that can spread throughout the gum tissue, and even jawbone loss near the root of the tooth. Our endodontists in Antalya are experts in this field and offer a root canal treatments to ease pain from an infected tooth.


A root canal is a dental procedure performed to thoroughly clean out the infected pulp of the tooth in order to save the natural tooth. Inside your tooth lies a natural cavity where the nerves and blood supply for the tooth are encased. This soft area is susceptible to infection if the nerve or pulp becomes damaged or unhealthy due to trauma or infection. As the pulp breaks down, bacteria can multiply inside the chamber, causing an abscess or a pus-filled pocket to form at the root. Whether the tooth is damaged due to injury, large fillings, or deep decay, an infection in the tooth needs to be treated promptly to minimize damage. That is why timely endodontic treatment is important to stop the infection from progressing and save your tooth. If left untreated, an infection in your tooth can spread to other teeth, the gum tissue, and even into the jawbone. Endodontists in Antalya perform root canal procedures to remove the infection, clean out the tooth cavity, and save the tooth from further deterioration. A root canal is also sometimes performed to treat irreversible pulpitis.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ideal candidates for root canal therapy are individuals who are looking to treat an infection in the tooth. In the majority of cases, patients with advanced tooth decay or pulpal infections are candidates for a root canal, as it is a necessary treatment to ensure the overall health of your smile. To determine what treatment plan is right for you and your specific needs, Dr. Siddik Malkoc will perform a detailed evaluation of your teeth, gums, and smile.

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.

Following a root canal, patients may experience some pain, discomfort, or soreness. These symptoms usually dissipate in a few days as you continue to heal.
