Why Do I Need a Root Canal?


A root canal is indicated if the soft tissue in the middle of your tooth becomes infected. This tissue is composed of blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues, and once it becomes infected, the only way of saving your tooth is to remove all of this tissue, thoroughly cleansing the chamber and root canals of all debris, and filling the ensuing cavity. Tooth decay is a major cause of cavities in the tooth that can be a gateway to infection of the pulp chamber, which is why regular dental check-ups and remedial measures are so important.

Unfortunately in these cases, if you want to save your tooth, there is no alternative to the root canal procedure. Once the tooth’s hard outer shell has been breached with infection-causing bacteria, it will continue to be susceptible to infections, even if you manage to clear up the initial infection with antibiotics, because the tooth will need to be sealed—and this can only be carried out successfully once all the infected material has been removed via a root canal procedure.

Essentially, if you do not have root canal treatment when your dentist has advised it, your tooth will need to be extracted.

Is a Root Canal Painful?


Root canal treatment is not painful. In fact, you are more likely to experience pain and unpleasantness prior to the procedure as the infection may affect the tooth nerve, as well as being responsible for swelling in the gum, which could be tender. Root canal treatment may have a bad rap, but it’s really not too different from having a tooth filling—apart from it does take a while longer, depending upon the number of roots and canals the tooth has.

What Does the Procedure for a Root Canal Entail?


If you have an active infection in the tooth, the first thing you will need is to undergo a course of antibiotics to clear this up. No dentist will commence root canal treatment until you are infection-free. The course of antibiotics will typically take seven days.

The root canal procedure first involves a hole being made in the top of your tooth allowing the dentist access to the pulp chamber. The process then begins of meticulously removing all the infected material and debris from the chamber, each root and each root canal. The length of time this takes varies between patients and is dependent upon how many roots and root canals your tooth has. Some teeth have one root and one root canal; others have two or three roots with one or two root canals—thus, it will take your dentist longer to complete the procedure for these teeth.

Once the dentist has removed all the infected debris and material from the tooth, it will be cleansed thoroughly and an antibiotic may be placed in the cavity before the tooth is sealed with a temporary filling. The dentist will want to make sure that the tooth is clear of infection before placing the permanent filling, and so you will need to wait for several days before you can go back to the dentist and have the permanent filling.

Also, if your tooth has decayed so much that the dentist needs to remove a large amount, the structure will be compromised, and thus crown will be required to add strength to the tooth. This will be an additional expense and may lengthen your overall treatment time. Your dentist can advise you on the details.

I have been to their office on two different occasions. Each time, the staff was friendly, spoke fluent English, and was very professional. The office has state-of-the-art equipment for all dental needs and the price is very reasonable if you have to pay out of pocket like I did. In fact, I currently live in Germany and flew to Ankara just to get my teeth taken care of here.
