When Do You Need A Root Canal Treatment?

Among the reasons why a root canal treatment is necessary include tooth decay, trauma, crack, large-scale tooth decay, and a noticeable abscess. When the nerve inside the affected tooth starts to die, becomes abscessed, or infected, applying a tooth filling or a crown will not save your tooth. There is a risk of constant reinfections occurring. Eventually, this will cause tooth loss.

The Root Canal Procedure

Root canal procedure take place in three stages, which we can complete in two or three visits depending on the severity of the infection. Of critical importance to us is to relieve the pain our patients feel when they come to our practice. The three stages of root canal treatment are:

Step #1: Deal With The Pain 

When a patient walks into our clinic in suffering from pain and discomfort as a result of an infection or other dental issue, our first step is to deal with the pain. We do this by drilling a small hole through the crown to the roots under local anaesthetic conditions. We remove the infected nerves, apply antibiotics, and then temporarily seal the tooth.

Step #2: Thoroughly Clean The Infected Tooth

After the pain subsides, we clean the nerve canals, ensuring we eliminate all bacteria. The sterilised tooth is prepared for permanent filling and sealing.

Step #3: Fill And Seal The Canals

The final stage of the process is to seal the canals permanently. The special filling material used help deter further infections while giving the tooth structural stability.

Root Canal Treatment Cost

The root canal treatment cost varies based on individual circumstances and the amount of work that goes into the treatment. In this regard, the treatment cost for types of teeth varies.

Endodontic Treatment Cost For Molar – Root canal treatment tends to be priciest when dealing with molars. Molars have a larger and more complicated anatomical root canal system. They take much more time to treat while utilising more complex treatment procedures.

Endodontic Treatment Cost For Incisors – Due to their smaller size, treating incisors tends to cost less. However, the actual price will depend on the restorative work that goes into treating your teeth.
