Root Canal Treatment in Turkey

Compare 13 clinics

Root canal treatment, also known as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy is a type of dental treatment in which the infected pulp of a tooth is eliminated and the tooth’s hollow roots are re-filled.

The tooth’s root is usually made up of nerve tissue, blood vessels and connective tissue. It’s very susceptible to infection if a cavity is large enough to reach it. If a large cavity forms, root canal treatment may be the only way to save the tooth from extraction.

Why should the pulp be removed?
When the tooth’s pulp is damaged or infected due to tooth decay, chips or cracks in the tooth or trauma, bacteria begins to multiply very fast in the pulp chamber. This can lead to an abscess in the tooth itself – a pocket full of pus that usually appears at the end of the root. Dental pulp infections can also lead to more problems, including:

● Bone loss at the root of the tooth
● Swelling around the tooth, neck, face and even head
● Pus drainage into the gums or cheek

A root canal treatment procedure can help patients avoid these problems altogether and in most cases, the tooth can be saved and further restored using other techniques (such as a crown or bridge). The tooth itself will maintain its full functionality after root canal treatment.

Root Canal Treatment Candidates

Root canal treatment or root canal therapy is recommended for patients with a damaged or infected tooth pulp. Using this type of endodontic therapy is better than simply extracting the tooth, since the patient’s natural teeth can be used as a foundation for other types of dental restoration (a dental crown or a bridge).

Am I Suitable for Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment or root canal therapy is not recommended in cases where the tooth is far too damaged for the treatment to be effective. In some cases, extraction may be necessary.

Preparing for Root Canal Treatment

Patients will be required to provide the dentist with X-rays, before travelling abroad for endodontic therapy. The dentist will inspect them and prepare a treatment plan based on these x-rays.

How is Root Canal Treatment Performed?

Local anaesthesia is first administered to the patient. Once it kicks in, the dentist will cover the patient’s tooth with a rubber dam in order to keep the area dry during the endodontic therapy session – this measure also helps to prevent infection.

A small hole is made at the top of the tooth, in order to reach the tooth’s pulp chamber and canals. The dental pulp is then carefully removed through the use of dentistry files. The canals and tooth chamber may also be widened in order to provide more room for the root canal filling. Once the infected tissue is removed from the tooth, the chamber and canals are filled.

The procedure is often time consuming – it takes around 3-4 hours to properly clean an infected tooth. Several sessions may be necessary for endodontic therapy.

Turkey

Turkey is a treasure trove of traditions, spices, street food delights and destinations for any intrepid tourist. It’s a mix between the familiar and the exotic, ranging from the bustling streets of Istanbul to the serene and relaxed Roman ruins spread around Turkey’s Western and Southern coast. Turkey is a fairly large country with 75 million inhabitants. The country spreads between Europe and Asia, with 97% of the country on the Asian side – Asian Turkey. Turkey is encircled and enjoys access to three different seas: The Black Sea, The Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean. Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and the largest city in Europe, regarding population – It has over 14 million people.

Healthcare

Turkey’s medical infrastructure has improved greatly beginning with the early 2000s and now is one of the biggest medical tourism hubs in Europe and Asia. Turkey has the largest number of JCI-accredited hospitals, second only to the USA and hospitals are more often than not part of international healthcare groups, following strict European protocols and regulations. Turkey has 28.000 medical institutions spread across the European and Asian side but some of the biggest private hospitals and medical centres are in Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya and Bodrum – these also happen to be some of the best tourist destinations in Turkey.

Sights to See

Bodrum is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey, with its sandy beaches and small streets littered with traditional shops and elegant restaurants. The town used to be called Halicarnassus, and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is one of the World’s Seven Ancient Wonders. Bodrum also features a castle built by the crusaders in the 15th century.

Istanbul is the home of several architectural treasures, including the Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque was built on the orders of Sultan Ahmed between 1609 and 1616 and the Sultan’s body still resides within the mosque. The high ceiling is lined with more than 20000 handmade ceramic tiles, hence the name – The Blue Mosque.

Pamukkale, meaning “The Cotton Castle” in Turkish is a surreal destination in the country’s western region of Denizli, world renowned for its white terraces with warm spring water. The ancient Greek city of Hierapolis was built over the springs and Pamukkale was a renowned destination in antiquity as well. Tourists can visit the ancient Roman and Greek ruins of the baths, temples and theatres dating to the second century BC.

Things to Know

● If you don’t feel like waiting in a queue, you can get a VISA for Turkey online. The VISA usually costs around $20 for US travellers.

● Turkey’s population is predominantly Islamic so it’s a good idea to wear a headscarf while visiting mosques. Shorts or any other garments that fit under the knee are not prohibited by law but it’s considered good etiquette not to wear shorts for men or short skirts for women.

● You can change any sort of currency into the Turkish Lira – the Turkish currency just about everywhere. Most supermarkets and shops also accept credit cards.

● Roaming fees in Turkey can be somewhat expensive, so it’s a good idea to simply buy a new Turkish SIM card and use it while staying in Turkey.

● Turkey’s international calling code is +90.

● Electrical installations usually operate on 220 volts, 50 Hz and use European style plugs and European style sockets. Four and Five star hotels usually provide North American - 120 volts, 60 Hz sockets as well.

● Driving in Turkey can be a hassle sometimes, but very pleasurable at other times. Roads are usually in good shape and some roads actually lack traffic, so it can be a relaxing experience. In Turkey, people drive on the right, so that’s a detail you will need to keep in mind. In some areas, villagers made cardboard and marker pen signs in order to help lost tourist on their way.

● Renting a car in Turkey is quite simple and cheap. If you have the budget for a full insurance, you should definitely take it – if anything happens, at least you won’t have to worry about money.

● The Turkish Airlines Company, THY offers destinations to just about anywhere in the world with a total of 261 destinations. The company was founded in 1933 and features 285 passenger and cargo planes.

● Turkey uses the metric system which is easy enough to understand – 1 Km = 1000 meters, 1 Kg = 1000 grams, and so on. One mile equals 1.60 Km.

● Turkish people are warm and very hospitable - It is customary for people to hug and kiss both cheeks regardless of their gender.

● Turkish street food is very diverse, from the simple bagel-type snack Simit to the familiar pizza-type Lahmacun, there are tons of variants to just about anything. 



● Turkish coffee is world renowned, but it’s also a bit different than say, its American counterpart -  It is usually a strong coffee with a rich aroma, served very hot from a small traditional cup. Be careful not to drink any of the coffee grounds still in the cup.

● Turkish delight, as the name suggests, can be a really sweet delight for tourists. It is made from sugar, starch and just about any fruit or aroma imaginable, including walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, dates, lemon, orange, rosewater and many others. Turkish delight is usually served with coffee and it became popular all around the world, including in the Balkans region and as far as Brazil and North America.

Root Canal Treatment FAQ

?
Is root canal treatment painful?

This is a very common misconception – it’s not painful at all. Local anaesthesia is administered and patients won’t feel a thing, only mild discomfort.

?
Are there any alternatives to root canal treatment?

Yes, having the tooth removed is an alternative. After it is removed, a dental implant or dental bridge can be used to fill the gap.

?
If I am not feeling any pain, do I still need root canal treatment?

It depends on the X-rays. Sometimes the pulp too decayed for the patient to feel any pain but it can still lead to abscesses and other problems.
