Can I give 6 stars? I had a great experience with Orbismed. I’d actually suffered for years and just learn how to live with my troublesome ‘British teeth’. The time came that I needed to do something about it and the UK simply wasn’t an option. I’d heard ‘horror stories’ about people coming to Turkey for their teeth done but I did my research and I found Orbismed. The feedback I received initially convinced me of their professionalism but I was still nervous. What I can say now.. with a full set of zirconium crowns (28) is that I wasn’t wrong to trust these guys. They are total professionals and what you have to remember is that this is their speciality unlike our UK dentists. I’m a very nervous dental patient so I wondered how they would cope with me, it can’t have been easy!! I can’t fault the work at all and I’m really happy that it was clear my dentists were more conscientious about their work than even I was! I was picked up from the airport in a luxury car, delivered to a perfect all inclusive hotel and my English speaking assistant kept in touch with me all along the way and made sure I was completely happy. They are all genuinely nice people and although I’m happy the drilling is over, I will genuinely miss all the people at Orbismed. They have a 100% recommendation from me. Thank you Orbismed!!!!

I have recently come home from a fantastic week in Turkey with Orbismed. Everyone is amazing and made me feel like royalty. Furkan was so nice and helpful, a real happy kind person who made me feel extremely calm all the way. He helped me with all my questions too. I would highly recommend Orbismed to all my friends. Elham also a real star and extremely calming and helped throughout the process. ORBISMED are the best xxx

Visited from the UK, I was extremely nervous about the procedure (total implants) I needn't have been, everyone from the coordinators in the UK, to the surgeon, cosmetic dentist and all the staff have been amazing. Could not be happier with my new smile, thank you Orbismed, I will be recommending to everyone!!!!

A root canal treatment, often simply referred to as a “root canal”, is a dental procedure that aims to treat infection within the pulp (innermost soft tissue) of a tooth. This treatment can save a tooth that might otherwise need to be extracted.

Here’s a detailed explanation of the procedure and its various aspects:

Why is it Needed?

  1. Infection: Bacteria that live in the mouth can invade the tooth when a tooth is cracked, has a deep cavity, or experiences trauma. This can lead to an infection in the pulp.
  2. Damage: Traumatic damage, repeated dental procedures on a tooth, or even a chip or crack can lead to pulp damage.

When the pulp is infected or damaged, it breaks down, leading to the multiplication of bacteria in the pulp chamber. This can cause an abscess or pus-filled pocket at the end of the tooth’s root. Left untreated, this can cause swelling, bone loss around the tip of the root, and other systemic complications.

Procedure Steps:

  1. Diagnosis: The dentist starts with an X-ray to see the shape of the root canals and determine if there are signs of infection in the surrounding bone.
  2. Local Anesthesia: To ensure the patient is comfortable and pain-free during the procedure, local anesthesia is administered to numb the tooth.
  3. Tooth Isolation: A dental dam, which is a small sheet of rubber or vinyl, is placed around the tooth to keep it dry and free of saliva during the treatment.
  4. Access Opening: An opening is made in the crown (top) of the tooth to access the pulp chamber and root canals.
  5. Cleaning and Shaping: The infected or damaged pulp is removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and shaped. This involves removing bacteria, nerve tissue, and debris.
  6. Filling: After cleaning, the space is filled with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha to seal the space. The tooth’s opening is then sealed with a temporary or permanent filling.
  7. Restoration: Since a tooth that needs a root canal often has significant damage, it may need further restoration like a crown to restore its function and appearance. A crown also helps protect the tooth from breaking in the future.

After the Treatment:

It’s common to experience some discomfort or mild pain, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications and should subside in a few days. If symptoms persist or if there is severe pain, it’s essential to contact your dentist.

Benefits:

  1. Pain Relief: One of the primary reasons to undergo a root canal is relief from the painful symptoms of pulp infection or damage.
  2. Tooth Preservation: The procedure helps save the natural tooth, which is always preferable when functionally and aesthetically possible.

Myths & Misconceptions:

Root canals have a reputation for being extremely painful. However, with modern techniques and anesthesia, most patients find that the procedure is no more uncomfortable than having a filling placed. The pain often associated with a root canal is due to the infection itself, not the treatment.

In conclusion, a root canal is an essential dental procedure that treats and saves an infected or damaged tooth. With proper care, a tooth that has had a root canal can last a lifetime.
