Root Canal Treatment: Procedure, Benefits, Recovery And Cost

Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that is performed to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or has become infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed by a filling. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected causing abscesses. Patients need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth which is shown by symptoms such as pain when eating, drinking or chewing.

Root Canal Treatment Benefits

In a root canal treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed. The tooth is filled with a crown or filling for protection so that it continues to function like any other tooth. Root canal treatment is a virtually painless procedure and often leaves you with less discomfort during recovery than if you have your natural tooth extracted and is also cost-effective. With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment can even last a lifetime.

Root Canal Treatment Recovery

Root canal treatment is a highly successful procedure and has a success rate of more than 95%.  However, its still important that you look after your teeth when recovering from a root canal treatment. You should avoid biting on hard foods until all your treatment is complete. Over-the-counter painkillers also can be used to relieve any discomfort.

To prevent the need for further root canal treatment, follow these steps:

  • Maintain good oral hygiene

  • Avoid consuming too many sugary foods

  • Give up on smoking if you're a smoker

Root Canal Treatment Cost

Root canal treatment cost in Pakistan ranges from PKR 5000 - 25,000. It varies depending upon the dentist who does the procedure, materials used and hospital expenditure/equipment.

Root Canal Treatment FAQs

Since the anesthetic is given to the patient before the root canal treatment, so it is usually no more painful than a typical dental filling.
If you get to face severe toothache pain upon chewing or when you apply pressure, sensitivity or pain to hot or cold temperatures, discoloration or darkening of the teeth are also the signs tell that root canal treatment is required.
It can lead to severe consequences that can even be life-threatening. The infection in the root of the tooth, if not treated on time, can spread to the jaw bone and then also to the surrounding tissue which can become a severe issue.
