Root Canal Treatment: Your Path to Relief at formedi, Antalya, Turkey
What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a dental procedure designed to save a tooth that has been badly damaged or infected. The name "root canal" refers to the natural cavities within the tooth's core. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it, and then filling and sealing it to prevent further damage or infection.
