What is root canal treatment?
Root canals are very common in the world of dentistry as they are a well known means of saving the tooth from death. Removing the nerve saves the tooth. Some of the best dental clinics offer root canal treatment in Dubai. Although many people end up having their teeth pulled, others resort to root canals. Many do not prefer this dental procedure as it can take a long time, usually around 3-4 hours. If the abscess is severe, it will take longer because the dentist will have to scrape out all the dying pulp from inside the tooth.
Cause of toothache
Sometimes when you have a toothache, the cause is that the tooth is badly rotten. If your toothache is causing you severe pain, the tooth within the tooth may be dying or may already be dead. If this is the case, you will need to extract the tooth or remove the nerve from the tooth to remove the abscess.
Modern root canal treatment
Today, dentists are beginning to use machines to do much of the scaling and probing associated with root canals. In the past, the dentist had to do everything himself, which required time. Now the dentist can use a machine to drill the hole in the tooth and then let the machine do the scaling. This reduces the time needed for root canal treatment and ensures that all dead or dying pulp has been effectively removed.
Cost of Root canal treatment.
The cost of root canal in Dubai can range from AED 2,000 to AED 5,000 depending on the condition and severity of the tooth. Rather than pay a high price for a root canal, most choose to pay a lower price and simply extract the tooth.
What should you choose?
The decision you must make when considering root canal treatment is whether or not you want to save the dying tooth. Sometimes a dentist will recommend a root canal, especially if he believes saving the tooth is in your best interest. Other times it lets you make the decision and decide if you want to save it or just review it.
You should be able to continue your daily routine tasks one day after the treatment. Avoid chewing the damaged tooth before a permanent filling or a crown placement. Within a few days of your root canal treatment, you will see your regular dentist. They will take x-rays to make sure there is no infection. They will also replace the temporary filling with a permanent filling.
Although root canal treatment is a procedure that many fear, it is also a procedure that can save the life of your tooth. If you have a dying tooth, you should consider this procedure. It’s not really painful because you’ll be numb the entire time. The only thing that is really frustrating is the time it takes to complete the root canal. Although it may take time, it is still an effective way to save the life of your tooth.
