Root Canal Treatment

Doctor talking to patientMore than 14 million root canals are performed every year. Though in years past, the words “root canal” may have conjured up ideas of pain, in reality, it’s a simple procedure that is virtually free from discomfort. The Worldwide Beauty and Dental Hospital team offers this easy treatment to save a natural tooth and prevent you from needing a dental implant or bridge.

What is a root canal?

This common dental procedure involves treating pulp that has been infected. The pulp, which is inside the soft tissue of the root canal, is made up of a group of blood vessels. Because of damage, bacteria can invade the pulp, leading to swelling, sensitivity and pain.

What does root canal treatment involve?

When you receive this nonsurgical solution, it begins with a cleaning of the infected pulp and root canal, then sealing it off. Local anaesthesia is used, and one to two visits are necessary. There is a high success rate of about 90%; though if we feel another option is more suitable, we’ll let you know at your first appointment.

What can I expect after treatment?

Your records can be sent to the dentist you normally see for checkups, and you can contact them to book a follow-up visit after your root canal treatment with us. They will then discuss which type of restoration will best protect the tooth after the root canal.

Complications are rare, but rest assured that we’re available to respond to your needs at any time of day. Remember to practice healthy oral hygiene habits to lessen your chances of future infection.

What is the cost?

The fee for a root canal will vary depending upon the amount of damage and which tooth requires treatment. It’s important to consider that this form of treatment is more cost-effective than tooth removal and replacement.
