Root Canal Treatment

As a result of the deepening of caries in the teeth, the pulp tissue (dental pulp), which gives vitality to the tooth, nourishes it, and contains its nerves, is damaged and inflamed. The most common causes of such damage to the pulp are a cracked or broken tooth, deep caries, or the exact tooth that has been treated multiple times. The term root canal treatment originates from cleaning the canals inside the tooth roots in the treatment in question. Root canal treatment is a procedure to treat severely damaged or inflamed teeth. Treatment includes removing the tooth's damaged pulp tissue (dental pulp), cleaning it, freeing it from bacteria, and filling it with filling materials again.

Retreatment - Repeat Root Canal Treatment

Previous root canal treatment may fail for many reasons. Therefore, repetition of Root canal treatment is frequently performed in today's endodontic practice. This is called retreatment, revision, or retreatment. The most important factor affecting the success of the retreatment procedure is the technological devices and dental materials used as well as the knowledge and skill of the clinician. Finally, the unsuccessful root canal treatment is renewed, and the tooth is kept in the mouth for a long time.

Resection - Endodontic Surgery

Endodontic surgery is applied to infected teeth that cannot be treated with root canal treatment. Root canal treatment is insufficient if the problem is a chronic and widespread infection around the teeth. In these cases, surgical intervention is performed on the part of the tooth that remains in the bone. Endodontic surgery can also be applied to infected teeth with clogged channels. Endodontic surgery is performed under local anesthesia in the part of the problematic tooth under the gingiva. Endodontic surgery can also be applied to unhealed teeth with root canal treatment. In such cases, the infected area is surgically opened, and the infected tissue residues are cleaned and closed. Teeth undergoing endodontic surgery are kept under radiological control within specific periods. Rules are continued for up to 1 year. In the surgical method, the tissues that cause failure and need to be surgically removed according to the infection status of the tooth are eliminated. Root canal treatment is performed before the procedure. The operation area should be cleaned well in the first 10 days after surgery, and the patient should follow the doctor's recommendations. Patient-doctor collaboration is the most critical factor affecting recovery, as in all surgical interventions.
