Endodontics – Canal Treatment
Root Canal Treatment Stages
First of all, anesthesia is applied to the tooth for painless treatment.
Then the caries is cleaned, and when the essence of the tooth is reached, the diseased and soft tissue is removed. Nerve and tissue residues are removed.
The tooth canal is shaped up to the root tip. The treatment process can be accelerated by making use of the tissue healing feature of the laser.
Root Canal Treatment Stages in Infected Teeth
Since the tooth loses its vitality due to infection, the above procedures are performed without anesthesia.
Until symptoms of infection resolve, CaOH (calcium hydroxide), an antimicrobial agent, is applied to the tooth treated for one or more sessions. The canal is filled with a special filler up to the root tip.
In some cases, these sessions are not necessary at all and it is possible to finish the canal treatment in a single session.
Laser Usage in Canal Treatment
The carious and damaged tissues of the anesthetized tooth are cleaned. Then the essence (nerve) of the tooth is reached and soft tissue residues are removed. Using the laser, the canal and surrounding tissues in the root of the tooth are purified from microorganisms. During the application, the laser provides a smooth treatment procedure without damaging the dental and surrounding tissues. Finally, the root canal is filled with specially manufactured agents.
