What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is the type of treatment option in which the pulp tissue (found in the innermost chamber of the tooth) is removed and the root canal filling material is placed within. This is a kind of filling procedure which is carried out in case of an infected pulp that will not heal or recover due to permanent damage.

Our teeth may appear like single square bits of white solid material. Truly, our teeth have different layers. The first layer from the outside is enamel which is also known as the toughest part of our body. Inner to enamel is dentin that fortifies our teeth.

The core of the tooth is basically an empty chamber that houses the pulp tissue. Pulp is responsible to keep the tooth alive as it is a complex formed by tiny blood vessels and nerve fibres.

Why do I need Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal treatment is the most recommended choice of treatment when the pulp gets contaminated and infected to an extent that it cannot be repaired with a simple filling.

Root Canal Treatment Cost

Root canal cost varies from tooth to tooth depending on several factors.

The cost of root canal treatment starts from $950.00.

We suggest root canal therapy for the following cases

  • Broken tooth

    A severe blow on your face due to an accident or fall, can fracture your teeth. Deep cracks can expose the pulp tissue that will eventually cause the pulp to get infected. In this case, root canal treatment is mandatory to save the tooth from being pulled out

  • Deep pits

    A deep dental cavity causes pulp exposure. In this case, conventional fillings like silver amalgam or composites are strictly contraindicated. Root canal treatment is the most desirable choice of treatment.

  • Dead tooth

    If you discover a tooth that is darker when contrasted with the rest of your teeth, the tooth may have turned non-vital (dead).This is caused due to the degeneration of the blood channels within the pulp tissue when it turns non-vital. It is always recommended to carry out root canal treatment for such teeth as soon as you find out about them even if they don’t cause pain at that moment. Once your dental expert performs a root canal treatment for the tooth, a cap can be placed that matches with the shade of the rest of your teeth.

  • Badly worn down teeth

    For those who have the habit of grinding their teeth or clenching them unknowingly, there is a high risk of developing pulp exposure. This is due to the wearing down of enamel and dentin due to unusually heavy biting or crushing forces. It starts with mild sensitivity while having cold or hot food and then progresses to sharp pain as more and more tooth layers wear off. The first line of treatment, in this case, would be habit correction followed by root canal treatment for teeth that are severely affected
