What is Root Canal Treatment?

There are three layers to natural teeth. When the cavity or decay is present in the first two layers called as the Enamel and Dentin a filling would suffice. But once the decay reaches the third layer called as the pulp, a root canal treatment is performed. It involves cleaning of the contents of the pulp with the removal of the infection. These treatments are also performed in conjunction with various other dental treatments especially in cases where the tooth or not in proper position and need moderate to severe corrections.

Why does one need Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment prevents spread of the infection into the bone and also prevents the spread of infection to neighbouring teeth. Certain common dental diseases like gum diseases, cavities, capping procedures and cosmetic alignment do require root canal therapy so as to prevent pain or sensitivity in future.

Deep decay: When a cavity is left untreated, it can eventually reach the pulp, allowing bacteria to infect the tissue.

Trauma: A tooth that has been cracked, chipped, or broken can expose the pulp, making it vulnerable to infection.

Gum disease: Gum disease can cause the gums to recede, exposing the roots of the teeth and making them more susceptible to infection.

Large fillings: Large fillings can weaken the tooth structure, making it more prone to infection.

Repeated dental procedures: Repeated procedures on a tooth can irritate the pulp tissue, leading to inflammation and infection.

What will happen if you don’t get one on time?

We commonly associated pain with infection. But this might not always be true in the case of dental diseases. Once the infection has invaded into the pulp and has destroyed the nerves the infection would still spread but it would not pain until it has started to cause swelling in the bone of the natural tooth. By this time the crown portion or the portion which we see in the mouth would be destroyed and the treatment would get more complex. Hence it is always advisable to get a filling done for a cavity and once that is not possible then the tooth needs to be root canal treated and saved.

Price of a root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment is usually performed along with the crown or prosthetic procedures. The cost of the root canal usually depends upon the complexity of the case and the experience of the dentist. In cases of re-root canal treatments or complex solutions the cost of the treatment may increase. But the value of saving a natural tooth is always higher when compared with the cost.

The price of a root canal treatment can vary depending on several factors, including the location of the dental practice, the complexity of the procedure, and whether additional procedures such as crowns or fillings are required. In general, the cost of a root canal treatment can range from $500 to $1,500 per tooth.

Why did root canal treatment take time?

The length of time a root canal takes typically varies on two factors: how many roots your tooth has and how bad the infection is. Typically, a root canal procedure requires one or two visits. Each visit can vary between 30 to 90 minutes on average. There are many reasons why root canal treatment is used to take time before some of them are listed below:

Complexity of the tooth: Each tooth has a unique shape and size, and some teeth have more roots and canals than others. This means that some root canals may be more difficult to access and clean than others, which can increase the time needed for treatment.

Infection severity: If the infection in the tooth is severe, the dentist may need to spend more time cleaning out the canals and removing infected tissue. This can prolong the treatment process.

Patient comfort: Root canal treatments can be uncomfortable for some patients, so the dentist may need to take breaks or administer additional anesthesia to keep the patient comfortable throughout the procedure.

Follow-up appointments: After the initial root canal treatment, patients typically need to return for follow-up appointments to ensure the infection has been fully cleared and to place a permanent filling or crown on the tooth. These appointments can also extend the overall treatment time.
