Root Canal Treatment becomes necessary when the very interior of the affected tooth, the pulp, dies and/or becomes infected.
Root Canal Treatment becomes necessary when the very interior of the affected tooth, the pulp, dies and/or becomes infected. Many of our patient fear Root Canal Treatment however thanks to modern Technology it is no more invasive than having a Dental Filling or a simple Descale & Polish. There are a number of causes, cavities that have been left open or recently broken teeth are just some of the reasons why the treatment is needed. If left untreated for any length of time the end result is inevitably an abscess which can spread the infection to the surrounding tissue beyond the tooth itself, even damaging bone and the neighbouring teeth. If left to progress then the only solution is a Tooth Extraction. Root Canal Treatment cleans the tooth root and removes any sign of infection from the tooth canals, therefore allowing you to keep your original tooth for a longer period of time. Following the Root Canal Treatment the appropriate material is used to close the tooth. In some cases if teeth are out of alignment and a Smile Makeover is planned the tooth may need to be prepared more than the adjacent teeth to ensure it can be brought back into alignment without any risk of future sensitivity. Modern materials and Technology mean that an excellent aesthetic result is achieved, whether the remaining tooth is filled or fitted with a Dental Crown.
Please Note: A single tooth can have one, two or three canals depending on the position of the tooth in your mouth. One or more canals may require treatment according to the tooth number and the results of your dental X-Ray.
We usually ask for a minimum of a two weeks notice before you plan to arrive in Turkey for your treatment, however we have been known to arrange dental treatment in much less time. Our clinics are larger than average and appropriately staffed and equipped to facilitate high quality treatments in a short time frame. If you are travelling to Turkey soon or you are already on your holiday, please contact us and we will do our very best to accommodate you. If you have not yet booked your holiday to Turkey, please contact us once you have some confirmed dates in mind before you proceed in making a booking. We can assist with flights and accommodation if needed and provide advice in relation to all aspects of your travel.
It is entirely your choice as to how many visits you would like to make to Turkey, however it will be more economical for you to make one visit for your consultation and subsequently your treatment, should you wish to proceed.
The timeframe needed for each of our treatments is shown on each treatment page. If you are planning multiple treatments or you would like to double check you can get in touch with us and we will advise accordingly and answer any other questions you may have. The timescale advised allows for both your consultation and the completion of your treatment. The usual process involves your first visit to include your consultation and the start of your treatment should you wish to proceed, which will allow plenty of time to complete your treatment before you return home.
There is no charge for any aspect of the consultation to include Panoramic X-Rays and no pressure to proceed with treatment. If you would not like to proceed with treatment following your consultation, no charges will be made and we will return you to your hotel/ accommodation if this service is provided by the clinic.
We are unable to offer finance plans for our patients where monthly payments are available, however an alternative option is for you to take a small personal loan from your bank to finance your dental treatment. The bank % APR is usually quite low, in fact, much lower than it would be through a dental provider so this is often a more smarter option to pay for your treatment.
