I recently had a rhinoplasty in Turkey, it was so hard to find the right surgeon to get it done by, and also to even get the courage to do it!! but fortunately I got in contact with Nadia, she helped me alot through this process, she is not only sweet but also professional and she was always available and responding to my questions... So far it was a good experience with Flymedi! Nothing to complain about! The process went smooth just as they offered me :)

Hi, I just recently had surgery and before I could decide the best safest choice for me. I googled a lot! Came across Flymedi and they made the overseas surgery bookings including hotel so much easier. My health consultant is very kind and sweet and still after the surgery, she still checks up on me. I am very satisfied with the results of the surgery and the clinic that they chose! This is mainly for those like me who want to have a certain surgery done that perhaps don't exist in the country you reside in. Flymedi helped me with finding a fit clinic, booked hotel and driver to pick me up and also drop me off to all the destinations such as the Airport. I had this surgery in late November 2019 in Istanbul, I highly recommend Flymedi to anyone who wants to be safe, satisfied and happy! Thank You to Fatima at Flymedi for all her help and Big Thank You to Flymedi for existing! You've definitely made this surgery and journey for me much more easy and comfortable!

Recommended For Root Canal Treatment

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).

Not Recommended 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. 

Overview

2 to 4 hours

Minimum Stay

2 to 5 days

Overview

Root canal treatment, also known as root canal therapyor endodontic therapyis 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 begin 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.

Preparation

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

How It Is Performed

What does root canal treatment involve in most patients? The average root canal treatment procedure starts with the dentist administering local anesthesia around the tooth affected the tooth. Once the anesthesia kicks in and the area around the tooth is numb, the dentist will start covering the tooth with a rubber dam in order to keep the area dry and saliva-free during the root canal procedure. This is done in order to prevent potential infections as well.

The dentist will then proceed by drilling a small hole at the top of the tooth in order to reach the pulp chamber and canals. Dentistry files are then used to remove the dental pulp in its entirety. In some cases, the pulp chamber and the canals are widened in order to make space for canal fillings – a special type of fillings used for this procedure. After all of the infected pulp tissue is successfully removed from the tooth, the canals and pulp chamber are filled with a special endodontic therapy filling in order to keep the tooth strong.

Endodontic therapy is usually time-consuming due to the fact that the success of this procedure rests on the dentist being able to remove all infected pulp tissue. The procedure takes between three and four hours, divided into several appointments at the dentist.

Since it is a time-consuming procedure, the average cost of root canal treatment varies greatly between different countries, with Turkey, Mexico and Hungary being prime destinations for patients. Root canal treatment pain is almost non-existent, with most patients feeling slight discomfort – this makes the medical trip much more enjoyable for patients. 

Recovery

The endodontic therapy will relieve the patient from any pain which might have been present before the procedure. During the recovery period, patients need to avoid chewing on the tooth before a permanent filling or crown is placed.

Risks

Root canal treatment risks and complications can include one or more of the following: 

  • An infection of the tooth which will require further treatment
  • Possible nerve damage around the tooth
  • Structural damage of the tooth, in case the treatment was applied too late
  • Root canal treatment after pain, due to reinfection

Side Effects

Root canal treatment side effects can include one or more of the following: ● Increase in sensitivity to hot or cold ● Soreness around the tooth ● Discomfort

Success Rates

Root canal treatment reviews set the average treatment success rate at 95%

Before And After

Patients undergoing a root canal treatment procedure have some options available to them, depending on the state of the treated tooth. Some patients will opt for dental fillings, while in some cases a crown may be necessary – if the remaining tooth structure is too weak and likely to crack. Generally speaking, if all the steps for a root canal treatment are taken, patients can opt for a filling which can last up to 7 years, while dental crowns can last a lifetime if properly cared for..

Faq

– Is root canal treatment painful? 

One of the biggest misconceptions surrounding root canal treatments is the fact that it's a very painful procedure. This is not true, and the procedure is not painful at all. Local anaesthesia is administered carefully in the surrounding gum tissue, from all sides of the affected tooth. By the time the doctor will begin the procedure, the area will be numb and the patient will only feel slight discomfort associated with any dentist visit.

– 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.
