Root canal therapy in Turkey is a popular and affordable dental treatment option for foreign nationals living in or visiting the country. It can often be completed in one day, with patients typically returning to their normal daily activities within 2-3 days post-procedure. Root canal therapy costs vary from clinic to clinic, but it is generally more affordable than in many other countries.
Moreover, many clinics use computerized technology and equipment that are up to international standards when performing these procedures, ensuring successful results every time. Furthermore, due to its high efficiency, there’s no need for general anesthesia during any root canal treatment compared to traditional methods used elsewhere, which usually involve intense dental drills.
What Is Root Canal Treatment?
Root canal or endodontic treatment is a dental procedure performed to treat an infected or damaged tooth pulp. The pulp is the soft tissue in the centre of the tooth containing nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. When the pulp becomes infected or inflamed due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures, cracks, or trauma to the tooth, it can cause severe pain and lead to tooth loss if left untreated.
A root canal treatment aims to remove the infected or damaged pulp, clean and shape the root canals, and then seal them to prevent further infection. The procedure is typically performed by a dentist or an endodontist (a specialist in treating dental pulp and root canal-related issues).
Here is a general overview of the root canal treatment process:
Anesthesia: The dentist administers local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth, ensuring the patient’s comfort during the procedure.
Access and pulp removal: The dentist creates a small opening in the tooth to access the pulp chamber and root canals. They carefully remove the infected or inflamed pulp from the tooth using specialised instruments and clean the pulp chamber and canals.
Shaping and disinfection: The dentist uses files of increasing size to shape and smooth the root canals, making them ready for filling. They also use antimicrobial solutions to disinfect the canals and eliminate bacteria.
Filling: After thoroughly cleaning and drying the canals, the dentist fills them with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. This material seals the canals and prevents recontamination.
Restoration: In most cases, a tooth undergoing root canal treatment becomes more fragile and requires additional protection. The dentist may recommend placing a dental crown or filling to restore the tooth’s strength, function, and appearance.
Root canal treatment is generally completed in one or two visits, depending on the severity of the infection and the complexity of the tooth’s anatomy. Following the procedure, patients may experience temporary sensitivity, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
It’s important to note that root canal treatment saves a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted. It alleviates pain, removes infection, and allows the tooth to remain functional for many years with proper care.

FAQs About Root Canal Treatments
Is Root Canal Therapy Painful? With the help of local anesthesia, we can numb the tooth and surrounding area. Most patients report no discomfort during the procedure.
What Are the Advantages of Root Canal Therapy? Root canal therapy is an effective way to save a tooth. It is also a less expensive alternative to replacing the tooth with a dental implant.
When Would I Need a Root Canal? If the pulp tissue becomes infected, we recommend root canal therapy. A dental implant might be the only option once the infection has spread to the bone surrounding the tooth.
