We must protect our natural teeth by treating until the last point because no artificial teeth can replace natural teeth.When our teeth become ill one of the most well-known method of protection is root canal treatment.The treatment is helpful in maintaining the damaged teeth. If the pulp ( the soft layer in the tooth containing nerves, blood, lymph vessels) so damaged that it is not be able to repair itself will die .Usually it is caused by bacteria on a broken teeth or deep teeth decays. Bacteria causes inflammation in the tooth core.If damaged or diseased pulp is not removed , the tissues surrounding the teeth will be exposed to infection and eventually you lose your teeth completely.
Stages of root canal treatment :
1 - First, dental anesthesia is done for a painless and comfortable treatment.
2 - Then decay is cleaned, core of the tooth is reached and diseased soft tissue is extracted.Nerve and tissue debris are cleaned.
3 - Tooth canal is given shape to the tip of root .If necessary, some medications may promote healing.
4 - Between the sessions the surface of the tooth is closed with a temporary filling material in the healing process. After stopping reproduction of theinflammation , the canal is filled with a special filling material to the tip of root.
5 - In some cases these sessions are not needed at all , it is possible to finish the root canal treatment in a healthy manner just in single session.
