Canal treatment process
The decayed parts of the tooth are cleared under local anaesthesia.
The nerve tissue is removed by using special tools, and root canals are washed and extended.
If there is too much inflammation in the tooth, certain medications are applied within the root and the tooth is filled with a temporary filling material. The medications are renewed at certain intervals.
If there is not too much inflammation, the canals extended in the first session are filled permanently with an appropriate canal filling.
Finally, the tooth is applied the last filling (If the remaining tooth tissue is thin, other processes such as crowning may be required in order to prevent fractures).

DURATION OF CANAL TREATMENT
Most treatments can be completed in one single session.
10-15 % of cases may require additional sessions.
Based on the state of the tooth, it may be necessary to renew the dressing weekly and this may prolong the duration of treatment to 1-4 weeks.
