Why it is Better to Take Root Canal Treatment?

Inside a tooth, a root canal is a pulp chamber. It contains nerves, pulps, and blood vessels. To your bone and gums, these connect your tooth. Some roots have more than one root canal while every root has a root canal. It needs a root canal procedure when a root canal becomes infected or inflamed to treat it.

The infection spreads to other teeth and other parts of your body if left untreated. You’re more at risk to experience heightened symptoms like pain because your tooth may turn black or yellow. The alternative to a root canal procedure is said to be Tooth extraction. You’ll lose the health benefits of your natural tooth and it can cause more pain, more expenses down the road.


What is the Root canal procedure?


The root canal procedure is mentioned below:

  1. The first step is numbing the entire area surrounding your teeth by your dentist. If you suffer from dental anxiety and you have difficulty getting numb, to keep you comfortable we offer sedation dentistry.


  1. To access the pulp chamber we’ll create a tiny opening in your tooth.


  1. We’ll carefully remove the pulp and infection.


  1. We’ll thoroughly rinse and disinfect the inside of your tooth. To complete the treatment we may place medication inside your tooth to kill off the infection and have you return for another appointment if necessary.


  1. To prevent reinfection and reinforce the structure of your tooth, your root canal will be filled and sealed with high-quality resin.


A dental crown may be recommended to protect your tooth from breaking and restore its function lastly. You may require an additional appointment to have the crown made and placed in this case. A crown may not be necessary in some cases. We’ll go over these expectations before we start your treatment.


how long does a root canal take?


How bad the infection is and how many roots your tooth has are the two factors on which the length of time a root canal takes. A root canal treatment requires one or two visits typically. On average each visit can vary between 30 to 90 minutes. On the average time it takes for each tooth, here’s a quick rundown:


Molars- they take 90 minutes or more. They are located in the back of your mouth and have up to four roots.

Premolars- They take 30 minutes only. They are located between your molars and anterior teeth and have one or two roots.


Incisors and canines- They take 45 to 60 minutes, They have only one root.


In case, if your tooth needs a tooth crown it’ll require more time and it may take up to 60 minutes. This step often requires another appointment, allowing time to guarantee your tooth has healed before the crown is permanently placed.


What is the cost of a root canal?


The root canal cost for a single-rooted tooth may be anywhere from $400 to $1000 and a multi-rooted tooth may be anywhere from $500 to $1400.
