Why Root Canal treatment?
Precision & Accuracy
As an advocate for Modern Dentistry, we always rely upon the latest, most innovative technology that aids to provide our patients with quality dental care. Hence, for root canal treatments we keep global dental microscopes and endodontic microscopes in our arsenal. Our advanced root canal treatments are virtually painless.
Global Dental Microscope
We’re leaving no spot unexamined. Global dental microscope provides enhanced visualization and access to even the most difficult angles of the teeth, mouth, and jaws, and allows for a better and more accurate diagnosis and treatment of many dental conditions. With its unmatched precision, the need for x-rays is reduced without compromising a procedure. That alone significantly improves the quality of treatment, and no one must stay long hours for treatment.
The endodontic microscope greatly enhances the endodontist’s ability to view the most minuscule details inside a patient’s tooth, with clarity. The powerful magnification provided by these microscopes would enable the dentist to obtain visuals that are 25 times smaller, and invisible to the naked eye. As a pivotal element of modern dentistry, our clinic provides endodontic microscopes to simplify complex root canal treatments.
Root Canal Treatment Procedure
Firstly, our endodontist will conduct an X-ray oral examination for your teeth and gums. Upon analysing the extent of damage on the impacted tooth, the dentists will then determine a suitable course of root canal treatment.
Next, dentists will numb the area of the infected tooth using local anaesthesia. Other sedation options such as IV or oral sedation are provided upon patient’s request.
Dental Dam Placement
Before commencing the root canal treatment procedure, a dental dam is placed upon the area of the procedure to isolate the tooth and keep it dry during the process.
Access Hole & Pulp Removal
After making a tiny incision on the crown of the tooth, the pulp is then removed using small dental instruments, to remove the nerves, blood vessels, and tissues inside the infected tooth.
Shaping & Filling the Canals
Successively, the visible pulp chamber and root canals are cleansed and disinfected. Then they are covered with a temporary filling material called gutta-percha, a flexible, rubbery dental substance.
Sealing the tooth
Following, a temporary dental filling is positioned in place to seal the tooth, and to prevent any bacteria from re-entering the tooth.
Positioning the Final Restoration
If dental crown is needed for permanent filling, our endodontist may prepare it suit the patient’s tooth. Once the dental crown is prepared, the dentists will remove the temporary fillings and position the crown in its place.

Most frequently asked questions
The cost for a root canal procedure would vary based on several factors: the complexity of the case, as well as the additional restoration methods involved. Endodontic treatment is less expensive than the alternative of having the tooth extracted and replacing it with an implant or dental bridge. These restorative procedures tend to cost a lot more.
Endodontic treatment is necessary when dental X-rays show the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, has been infected by a bacterial infection. The pulp may become inflamed, allowing the bacteria to multiply, and spread if not treated. Symptoms of a root canal infection include pain when biting, eating, chewing, and drinking, loose tooth, sensitivity etc.
A dental crown may be necessary after a root canal treatment if the tooth suffered from severe damage or if it was a molar. The crown can be customised to match the colour of the tooth and adds strength and stability. Once placed, the tooth’s chewing and biting function gets restored.
