Caries is one of the major oral and dental health problems. Rotting teeth can cause pain, as well as odor in the mouth and disruption of life order. How does caries go? What are the treatment methods of caries? What’s good for tooth decay in Turkey? We have compiled the answers to all these questions for you.

Caries is a condition that causes the structure of the teeth to deteriorate due to wear over time, the destruction of tooth enamel and the hard surface of the tooth, which causes it to turn into a darker color than its normal natural color. Caries can be manifested by discoloration. For this reason, it is also immediately noticeable. In addition, caries causes pain and leakage in the area.

Caries is not a reversible condition. For this reason, it is necessary to get professional help. However, if the decay does not progress, it is also controllable with interventions that will be performed at home. In this case, the progress of the tooth can be stopped without intervention. Antibacterial mouthwashes and toothpaste containing fluoride and calcium can prevent caries that do not progress.


Although caries can be controlled by traditional methods, the most accurate and effective answer to the question of how caries passes is treatment in Antalya and Istanbul Turkey. Dental caries can recur or become an even worse condition unless treated. Dental caries treatments are divided according to stages:

– In the first stage, you go to the method of applying fluoride therapy by diagnosing caries at the beginning.

– Filling therapy is performed in the middle stages of tooth decay. In this method of treatment, the caries part of the tooth is cleaned and the filling is restored to the appearance of the tooth. For teeth that are too bad to fill, the chrome plating method is applied. In both methods, teeth can be used for years in a healthy way.

– In the advanced stage of dental caries, the method of completely cleaning the nerve endings is applied with canal treatment. Root canal treatment is a precise and effective treatment for caries. This method is used if a certain part of the tooth is intact.

– When there is no treatment method left to be applied, tooth extraction by dentist in Turkey is carried out to completely eliminate the teeth and roots. In this way, the connection of the caries tooth with the mouth can be completely severed and replaced by implant treatment.


The most effective and only solution for tooth decay is medical intervention. Other methods are only used to relieve pain, not eliminate tooth decay. The Turkish dentist Antibiotic therapy and strong painkillers under the control of your doctor in Antalya can eliminate the negative effects of dental caries.
