Root canal treatment is often a simple and consistent procedure. The purpose of a RCT is to provide patients with the relief of pain and to save the tooth. Inflammation or infection at the root of a tooth is often the leading driver behind patients requiring RCT treatment.
During treatment, the pulp inside the tooth is carefully removed. The area is then cleaned, disinfected and shaped in such a way to prepare for the root filling material. A root filling material is placed to ensure reinfection does not occur. Finally, your dentist will fill and seal the tooth.
Please be aware that several appointments are required for the successful completion of an RCT treatment.
Root canal therapy does range in price, depending on how many canals there are in a tooth, how large the infection is and complexity of the case. Generally prices range from $1,200 – $2,500.
From as little as $43.53 a fortnight per root canal. Visit our Payment Options to find out more.
