They say toothache is one of the worst. Everyone wants healthy teeth without cavities, pain, and sensitivity to temperature changes or when consuming irritating foods and drinks. Our cooperating renowned dental clinics in Turkey provide superior dental health care at competitive prices. The most common procedures include the following treatments.

Restorative dentistry

The main goal of restorative dentistry is to save the affected tooth. Therefore, restorative dentistry is a primary dental discipline. Its content consists of the prevention and therapy of tooth decay and its consequences – inflammation of the dental pulp formed by dental nerves and blood vessels, inflammation of the dentition, periosteum, and dental focal infections.

Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry that deals with filling tooth defects, such as fillings, oral hygiene, and root fillings. The main goal of restorative dentistry is to save the affected tooth. If it is lighter damage that does not affect the nervous system of the tooth, these defects can be solved with a filling (filling). The filling itself – white or amalgam filling – is determined individually according to the evaluation of all current specifics and the patient’s wishes. If the tooth’s damage is severe, root canal treatment (cavity in the root of the tooth, which is filled by the dental pulp) is performed.

The reason for inflammation of the dental pulp

The most common cause of inflammation of the dental pulp is tooth decay. After reaching the pulp cavity, bacteria in dental caries penetrate the pulp and cause inflammation.

The dental pulp often reacts with acute inflammation manifested by severe pain due to temperature differences (cold, heat), pulsating, or spontaneous pain. If the patient does not seek medical treatment, the dental pulp gradually dies (necrotizes), and the tooth stops being painful. It is a chronic inflammation of the dental pulp. The bacteria in the slow dental pulp progress further and reach the bone and blood circulation, affecting the entire organism.

It is necessary to undergo root canal treatment.

Endodontic treatment is often the only option to save a tooth from extraction. At the same time, it prevents the further spread of infection (bacteria) from the inflamed tooth into the body and possible health complications (inflammation of the heart, joints, or kidneys).

Current medicine does not know how to cure dental pulp inflammation; therefore, it is necessary to remove such pulp, disinfect the tooth and close the canals. A tooth treated this way fulfills its function (chewing and aesthetic) in the mouth like a healthy tooth.

Procedure in the treatment of the dental canal

  1. Numbness of the tooth (anesthesia)

The treatment of root canals, where there is a living (even if inflamed) dental pulp, should always occur under local anesthesia. The treatment is then painless. However, digital (dead teeth) treatment can occur without anesthesia because a dead tooth does not feel pain.

Before root canal treatment, removing the infected tooth tissue in the crown part of the tooth is necessary. Next, the tooth is isolated from the environment of the oral cavity by an insulating membrane. Isolation is essential so bacteria from the oral cavity do not get into the treated canals during work and that the disinfectant rinses do not irritate the patient’s mouth.

  1. Passage and disinfection of the canal

The canal must be opened, widened, and rinsed with disinfectant solutions. After cleaning and disinfection, the dental canal is filled and hermetically sealed.

In some cases, it is necessary to fill the canal for some time with a medicinal insert and seal it hermetically. After the difficulties subside, the canal is permanently filled with a root filling. The shaped channel has no ideal circular diameter, but many folds and curves. A quality root filling will fill all these places. Sometimes, the doctor uses a microscope to monitor his work better.

After the treatment, the patient may feel weak to moderate pain in the tooth or the surrounding area. Pain may persist for 1-2 days after treatment.

Duration of treatment

The length of the treatment depends on the number of canals in the tooth. The more roots a tooth has, the more root canals it has. For front teeth, there is usually one canal. For back teeth, it can be up to 5. Therefore, the treatment of a front tooth is generally estimated at 45 minutes and a posterior tooth at 120 minutes.

Treatment of the crown part of the tooth after root canal treatment

A tooth with filled root canals, which is strong enough and has no fracture risk, should be thoroughly treated with a filling of the crown part to prevent the infection from re-entering the root canals. Therefore, the tooth must be treated both in the channel and the crown to maintain its durability for a long time.

Treatment of tooth decay

Tooth decay is one of the most widespread diseases of the teeth and brings many inconveniences. In our conditions, it affects the entire population from an early age. It is a disease of civilization because it is related to societal changes, especially in nutrition. It contains many carbohydrates, which create suitable conditions for the reproduction of microorganisms in the oral cavity.

If it is visible when smiling, it also looks unaesthetic and unattractive. If neglected, tooth decay leads to inflammation of the dental pulp, problems with root canals, and finally, tooth decay. During the formation of dental caries, so-called carious cavities, in which there is a complex of bacteria that affects not only the tooth tissue but also the cardiovascular system and eyes, and affect the whole organism. Therefore, identifying and treating tooth decay in time is very important.

It is characterized by damage to the hard dental tissues in the sense of disruption, disintegration, and even loss. Tooth decay is usually caused by the presence and interaction of three factors:

  • Receptive surface of the tooth
  • Cariogenic food (carbohydrates)
  • Microorganisms


  • Amalgam and photo composite fillings
  • Sealing of teeth, preventive fillings
  • Fiberglass fillings

Treatment of dental caries and tooth reconstruction with a filling also takes place with the help of a dental microscope. The microscope makes it possible to preserve a large percentage of the healthy part of the tooth because, with its use, it is possible to remove only the affected tissue. Thus it is possible to save the tooth for a long time.

Wisdom teeth extraction

Wisdom teeth extraction is a surgical procedure. Depending on the situation in the oral cavity – damage or other problems – it is possible to remove one to all four molars of the upper and lower jaw, the so-called eights named wisdom teeth. The most common reasons leading to the need for extraction are incomplete cutting of this tooth, jammed roots, or lack of space for the growth of this tooth due to the presence of other teeth or a smaller jaw. In addition, it can cause pain, infection, or other problems. Therefore, wisdom teeth extraction is sometimes recommended even if these teeth are not causing any issues yet to avoid possible problems in the future. The doctor reaches such a decision after examining the patient’s medical history. But, of course, this only happens after a detailed anamnesis and consultation with the patient.

Resection of the root tip

Resection of the root tip means loosening and removing at the directions all the roots of the tooth embedded in the bone. The procedure removes the inflammatory deposits that have reached the end of the heart via the dental nerve and could not be removed by standard root canal treatment. As a result, bone may become infected in the root area, or jaw cysts or granulomas may form.

Resection of the root tip makes it possible to re-clean the problematic area of the tooth root, solving the problem of the appearance of bacteria and preventing tooth loss.
