Fillings and Root Canal Treatment
When patients come to the clinic in the form of food jams or tingling while drinking something cold in that area, the first thing that comes to our mind is tooth decay. Tooth decay appears as a disease that affects the enamel structure of the tooth, the middle layer dentin structure and sometimes the pulp (vascular nervous system). The enamel-dentin structure becomes softened and there is now a bacterial contamination.
If the decay progresses and the nerve structure of the tooth, which we call pulp, is also affected, the event has also included the tooth roots. In such a case, the need for root canal treatment arises. Root canal treatment is performed on the patient, the inflamed nerves in the tooth roots are cleaned, biocompatible plastic bio-materials are placed in this area, a plug is provided and the treatment is terminated by filling it.
