What influences the price of a root canal treatment?
One of the main factors in determining the amount the dentist charge is the time it will take to complete this procedure. Root canal treatment is an excellent example. The determining factor is the time required for the intervention of a tooth according to the number of roots and canals it has. Dentists charge more for the treatment of teeth with multiple roots and canals.
- The anterior teeth (incisors, canines) have one canal
- Pre-molars have one or two canals
- Molars have two or three canals and sometimes four
This means that each of these different types of teeth will take a different time to process. And these differences are reflected in the cost estimates.
What is a root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment is a dental procedure used to remove diseased pulp tissue from inside a tooth. The narrow canals located under the pulp chamber in the internal part of the tooth are hollowed out and cleaned with flexible nickel titanium files.
A tooth is made up of three main components: a hard protective shell called enamel, a softer and sensitive intermediate layer called dentin, and an inner layer of soft tissue called dental pulp.
The dental pulp is made up of nervous tissue, lymphatic tissue and blood vessels. It is considered to be the vital part of the tooth. If the dental pulp is sufficiently traumatized either by exposure to oral bacteria via deep tooth decay, a fracture of the tooth that enters the pulp or a severe blow to the face, the tooth begins to die and root canal treatment is often necessary to prevent or eliminate tooth infections.
The process of root canal treatment
The root canal procedure involves disinfecting the teeth and removing all debris (nerve tissue, lymphatic tissue, blood, bacteria and infection) from the coronal pulp chamber and its associated canals.
