Endodontics – root canal treatment

Once a tooth has fallen ill – for example, tooth decay, bacteria can quickly invade and infect and destroy the tissue of the tooth interior, the so-called pulp (pulp). It comes to the root inflammation, which can assume different degrees of severity. Often, the person initially reacts strongly to exogenous stimuli (such as heat and cold), later can also be accompanied by redness, swelling and throbbing pain.

How is the therapy of root inflammation going?

At the beginning of endodontic treatment, the affected tooth is anesthetized and the oral cavity is well sealed with a rubber dam for protection. To enable your dentist to penetrate the root canals, they are exposed using highly flexible nickel-titanium disposable files. Now, a measurement of the root canals by means of endometry (electrical resistance measurement). Following the actual cleaning of the disclosed channels. In order to really achieve a 100% sterility and to reach the bacterial herds, which are difficult to reach with conventional methods, we use in Turkey both ultrasonic rinsing solutions as well as a diode laser.

Periodontics – The teaching of the periodontium apparatus

Endodontics & Periodontics Cost

There are three main forms of disease that are most frequently observed in periodontology: gingivitis, which is a pure inflammation of the gums, periodontitis, which also affects the bones, and peri-implantitis Inflammation of the bone, which surrounds a dental implant. All periodontal diseases are triggered by bacteria, which in larger quantities (“biofilm”) – irritate the gums – mostly due to lack of dental and oral hygiene.

The most frequently observed form is periodontitis – or colloquial periodontitis. This is subdivided into a chronic (slowly progressing process) and a rarely occurring aggressive periodontitis (rapidly progressing process).

How is periodontitis treated?

The goal of any periodontal dental treatment is to completely remove all soft and hard plaque residue on the teeth – both above and below the gum. Often, a thorough cleaning of the periodontal pockets, which have formed due to the gum recession, is sufficient to eliminate all bacteria. If not, surgery performed by microscope magnification in combination with regenerative measures or plastic corrections (for example, using the finest sutures) may lead to the desired result. For particularly aggressive bacterial strains, additional antibiotic therapy is recommended.

After about 4-6 weeks, an intermediate check is made with your dentist so that this success and the further course of the treatment can be evaluated. In general, around 3-4 additional periodontal treatments are required within the following year to minimize further risk.

What is the estimated cost of endodontic treatment in Turkey?

The costs vary depending on the treatment cost – that is, the more time a root canal treatment is in Turkey, so the more root canals must be cleaned, the higher the material and equipment costs and finally the price.

Do statutory health insurance companies take the endodontic treatment?

The health insurances do not necessarily cover all costs incurred – often only part of an endodontic treatment is paid. In this case you are welcome to contact our Aestehtic Travel Team in Antalya if you are interested in treatment abroad.

How do gum pockets develop?

With every toothache disease, which one does not treat promptly and above all professionally, over time the entire periodontium is destroyed. Due to specific bacteria, which continuously irritate the gums, the body’s own immune defense leads to tissue destruction: The gums release from the tooth, there is a degeneration of the bone and so-called periodontal pockets arise.

Which factors play a role in the development of periodontitis?

In addition to genetic patterns of inheritance and existing systemic diseases such as rheumatism or leukemia, stress often plays a major role in the development of periodontitis. In addition, statistically, smokers are much more likely to develop periodontitis and the likelihood that the treatment measures will work worse is also significantly higher!
