There is a vein–nerve package in the middle-area of the tooth that begins from the crown and ends at the end of the root called pulp. This gives vitality to the tooth. Sometimes, due to deep decay, occlusal trauma or periodontological problems, pulp may be damaged or create inflammation if the microorganisms join the picture as well. In this situation damaged pulp must be extirpated, pulp chamber must be cleaned, re-shaped, disinfected and filled three dimensionally with a root canal filling material. This is called root canal treatment. With the root canal treatment, the tooth loses its vitality, doesn’t sense the cold or hot; but it allows us to keep the tooth in the mouth and can perform eating and chewing. You have no pain during the treatment. We use enough amount of anesthesia for the treatment. After the treatment, it is possible to have little pain during eating and chewing for a while. The root canal treatment doesn’t take too much time to perform. If the tooth is still vital and if it’s a one visit treatment, it takes around one hour. If the tooth has inflammation, then the treatment requires more than one visit, and each visit takes mostly half an hour. All in all, root canal treatment is not a painful and difficult treatment if your doctor is an experienced endodontist specialized in root canal treatment.
