The pulp tissue is a connective tissue containing nerves and vessels in the inner part of the tooth that provides nutrition and protection of the tooth.
Pulp tissue is disturbed for some reasons (traumas, bruising, abrasions, etc.). Usually, the symptom is severe pain.
When the pulp is disturbed, root canal treatment is needed. Root canal treatment is a very complicated procedure. The anatomy of each tooth is different. Although root and canal numbers are known by general rules, they may differ.
All canals are emptied with the help of hand tools and rotary tools, and the canals are shaped to make them easy to fill. It is washed with various solutions and filled in such a way that there are no gaps. Sometimes it is a single session, sometimes it takes several sessions.
In addition, sometimes old root canal treatments are performed again, corrected and refilled. With this process called retreatment, the aim is not to lose the tooth.
