Then, the rubber Cover, which we physicians call rubber dam, is applied to the related tooth. Then, the decayed tissue of the tooth is cleaned so that no decayed tissue remains until the nerve cavity. Then, the nerve chamber, where the mouth of the root canals is located, is opened beautifully, and then the multi-canals are accessed with the tools we call thin if. The diameters of these houses gradually increase, and then the nerve tissue inside the roots is removed.

After cleaning the canal, the root canal treatment is completed in a single session and sometimes in several sessions. On average, a root canal treatment takes about 30 minutes. Root canal treatment Although it is known as a painful treatment among people, actually painful root canal treatment is infection and inflammation in the tooth.

This sensitivity will disappear spontaneously within 1-2 weeks. Root canal treatment has a success rate of 95%. In addition, good oral care can be used for life with regular dental check-ups.

For these reasons, it is necessary to solve all the problems that may occur with regular dental check-ups as soon as possible by using oral care tools and equipment without disrupting the care of the teeth.
