Root Canal Treatment (RCT)

We will ease your stress by providing clear and detailed information

A Root Canal Treatment (RCT) is a specialised procedure performed when a tooth is infected.

This treatment provides an alternative to removal of the tooth by thoroughly cleaning out any infection and bacteria from the root canals of the affected tooth. Untreated tooth infections may lead to pain, swelling, and abscess formation, and in some cases, the infection may remain dormant for an extended period before being detected.

Amidst the confusion and misinformation surrounding Root Canal Treatments, we strive to alleviate stress by offering clear and detailed information. Our goal is to empower you to make an informed decision about your dental care.

We also have a variety of payment plans available – giving you the flexibility of paying for your dental procedure later.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are Root Canal Treatments so expensive?

Root Canal Treatments are essentially microsurgery internally on the tooth’s nerve tissue. If you saw the breadth of the set up required for a Root Canal Treatment, you would be gobsmacked!

It is a complex procedure that often takes multiple appointments and longer appointments. The equipment and materials used are very specialised including, rotary nickel titanium files, medicament for the canals, an electronic apex locator etc.

The cost of the treatment will vary according to the complexity and the number of canals which are in the teeth.

Some molars can have up to 4, 5, 6 or more canals and have very complex anatomy and hooks and curves!

Sadly, Root Canal Treatments have a very bad reputation and it is a very misunderstood procedure.

More often than not, people will wait till the tooth is very painful and infected and sometimes with an abscess/facial swelling before they come to see their Dental Professional. Unfortunately, once severe symptoms set in, it is harder to numb up the tooth and recovery may also take a couple of days. It is still relatively well controlled with pain relief.

Generally speaking, if you get treatment in a timely manner, the discomfort after the appointment is manageable with normal pain relief. The discomfort (if any) is usually after the very first appointment. Subsequent appointments for a Root Canal Treatment do not result in much discomfort.

The key to avoiding pain is to come in when you notice the first signs or symptoms. The earlier the procedure is started, the better the recovery and the better the success rate.
