Bacteria cause cavities in the teeth, if they are not treated, they may move to the nerves, causing tooth loss. The treatment of the dental canal is a method that prevents the destruction and loss of teeth.
Patients before the dental canal treatment feel hypersensitive to hot and cold foods, and the pain begins for no reason.
When the treatment of the dental canal is decided after the dentist’s examination, the surface of the teeth, the contents of the canals and nerves are cleaned, then the canals and teeth are closed with appropriate materials and designed according to the dental form.
When treating the dental canal, it is necessary to proceed to radiography of the teeth and to examine the length of the channel to be cleaned.
The treatment of the dental canal lasts a long time. No different care applies to the teeth treated. Cavities can also be seen in the teeth treated over time.
If the inflammation in the tooth is too progressed, the treatment can not be applied and the tooth withdraws.
Is The Treatment of the Dental Canal Painful?
The dental canal is treated under local anesthesia. Thus, the patient feels no pain when cleaning the roots of the teeth. Once treatment is complete, the patient may feel pain and tenderness in the tooth for a short time. The patient can eat and drink immediately after treatment if the food is not too hot or too cold.
