Root canal treatment or endodontics is the treatment of inflamed, infected or dead pulp without damaging other teeth, gums or nerves. Dental pulp is a soft substance consisting of nerve, blood vessels and connective tissue in the dental center. During a typical root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the internal part of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the surrounding tissue of the female becomes infected and abscesses may form. An abscess is a pus-filled pocket formed at the ends of the tooth roots. Most root canal treatments involve at least two visits to the dentist. In the first appointment, once the problem is fully detected and measured by a detailed x-ray, the infected nerve tissue is removed and the area is covered with a topical antibiotic. This usually relieves pain in the tooth. In the second visit, the root canal is cleaned, disinfected, shaped, measured and filled to prevent recurrent infection.

How Does it Work?

The root canal treatment is a procedure used to treat abscessed or diseased teeth. So, if you have an infected tissue inside or around your teeth, you might need to consider the root canal treatment. During the procedure, your dentist will open the affected teeth, clean out the infected tissue in the centre, fill it and then seal it.

What Does a Root Canal Treatment Involve?

This procedure is done in two sessions: (1) removing the pulp and the nerves and (2) closing the tooth. 

We understand that every patient is different, so we carefully plan your trip from A-Z and we hook you up with an expert dentist who can customize the procedure so as to suit your preferences, goals, expectations as well as the dental clinic’s best practices. Here are some of the stages you should expect when you choose to have this procedure:

1.     Diagnosis

Diagnosis makes it possible for your dentist to identify the cause of the problem. This is the reason why you will have to go through an X-ray scan first before any procedure commences. It is the X-ray results that will help your dentist make informed decisions on how to treat the infection.

Suppose you don’t leave in Istanbul and but you want to travel to the country for the surgery, our FlyMedi consultant team will be happy to assist you. All you have to do is to send your X-ray documents to us, and we will take it from there.

2.     Taking the anesthesia

When everything is set and you’re at the clinic ready for the treatment, your dentist will give you local anesthesia. This is done so that you don’t feel any sort of pain or discomfort during treatment. This anesthesia is given in the form of 3 injections that will numb the tooth and the surrounding gum completely.

3.     Opening the tooth

Once your tooth is anesthetized, the dentist will use a small dental drill to open a small hole in the affected tooth. This small hole will give your dentist access to the inner structure of the tooth.

4.     Removing the nerve and pulp

With access to the tooth’s inner structure, your dentist will then begin to remove the nerve and pulp. Special tools are used to remove the nerve and pulp. When the infection is completely removed, the dentist will apply special meds to heal the treated area. He/she will also put a temporary filling on the treated tooth.

5.     Finishing the treatment

When you dentist is satisfied that the meds have gone into effect, the temporary filling is removed and it replaced by a permanent one –and if necessary, a crown is placed.

6.     After care

Most of the patients are satisfied with the outcome of the procedure and they often say that they never experience any problems on the treated tooth ever again. But there are instances where the treatment can fail and in such cases, your dentist can recommend that you have alternative treatments.

What Should I Expect After Root Canal Treatment?

  • Expect to experience tenderness on the treated tooth for several days.
  • Your dentist will prescribe some meds to relieve any sort of discomfort.
  • You should avoid eating sugary foodstuffs and also stop smoking.
  • Be careful not to damage your tongue and lips, which are will be still numb after the root canal treatment.
  • You shouldn’t eat anything for 2 hours after the treatment.
  • You should avoid chewing using the treated tooth for a couple of days, as this can destabilize the filling.
  • If placed fillings fall, you should visit your dentist to renew.


Things You Should Do Before Laser Teeth Whitening Procedure

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirins and any other meds associated with blood thinning.
  • If you are allergic to any drugs, you should inform your surgeon as soon as possible.
  • Patients advised to avoid smoking 24 hours before the surgery.
  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So you should not take in anything alcoholic 24 hours prior surgery.
  • If you are taking meds for chronic or acute diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, you should inform your surgeon before the surgery commences.  



Is Root Canal Treatment Painful?

There is no pain during the procedure once numbness takes effect. However, in rare cases, patients may feel pain or soreness after the numbness subsides. Dentists may prescribe painkillers to relieve this pain and discomfort.

Are Root Canal Treatment Results Permanent?

The results of root canal treatment are long-term. This treatment relaxes the patient's teeth and protects the affected tooth indefinitely.

What is the Function of Pulp?

The main task of pulp is the completion of dental development. It also detects changes in temperature, trauma, pressure, and causes pain. This protects the tooth.

    I had a wonderful experience booking my dental work with Flymedi. I needed a fair amount of work done and was required to visit twice but luckily the clinic was so hygienic and professional that it was a no-brainer to return. The dentist was great, and I knew exactly what was going to happen in each session.

    I absolutely love the way my teeth look now, and I’m so happy I decided to go through with it as it was two trips to Turkey but totally worth it! I had to get a lot of work done actually as my teeth weren’t in the best shape, so I was quite scared, but the clinic was so clean and hygienic and the staff super professional.

    I was getting very expensive offers in my country for root canal operation. While researching for dental treatment fees abroad, I came across Flymedi. I had my treatment at Istanbul Dental Center. The team was incredibly experienced and friendly. Flymedi consultant was with me throughout the whole process. Thank you to Ana and the Flymedi, I'm glad we came across.

The procedure itself was totally painless which was a first for me having had bad experiences with dentists in the past so that was really encouraging. I would highly recommend Flymedi's services as they exceeded my expectations (:

    A very positive outcome, following my decision to pursue in having dental cosmetic surgery/treatment carried out in Turkey. Excellent advisory skills by Flymedi rep Abud. He was professional, well informed, and followed me up with total attention throughout the whole process. Last but not least, I thank Dr Ahmed Kumsan and his team at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic for their commitment and professionalism. Highly recommended.

    I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.

    Хочу оставить свой отзыв-благодарность этой компании, очень помогли в трудный момент. Разболелся зуб на отдыхе за день до отъезда, промучилась всю ночь. В страховой сказали, что в Турции начинается великий праздник Курбан-байран и что врядли кто-то будет работать. Муж нашел сайт этой компании, где очень отзывчивая и приятная девушка Диана предложила свою помощь в поиске клинике. В итоге после долгих поисков работающей клиники мне оказали помощь в Kirici Dental Clinic, после чего я смогла спокойно собрать чемоданы и приехать домой без болей. Спасибо огромное за помощь вашей компании и сотрудникам клиники, за то что помогаете и не оставляете нас в самых сложных ситуациях, даже не знаю, что было бы, если бы мы не нашли вас..
