Root Canal Treatment in Dubai
Preserve your oral health and avoid extraction
Root canal treatment is a dental procedure designed to eliminate bacteria from an infected root canal and save the natural tooth. Additionally, the treatment is structured to prevent future reinfection. During the procedure, the inflamed or damaged pulp is removed, and the core of the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, filled, and sealed. By preserving the natural tooth, root canal treatment can alleviate dental pain and prevent the need for extraction.

Let’s get to the root of the problem
Why Root Canal treatment?
The “root canal” is the natural cavity in the middle of the tooth that contains the pulp chamber and canals. These canals provide nutrients and nerves to each tooth, but bacteria can enter the tooth roots through cavities. If left untreated, the bacteria can result in infections and abscesses that cause excruciating pain and swelling, which may extend to other parts of the head or face.

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
What is the cost of root canal treatment in Dubai?
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.
When do I need a root canal treatment?
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.
Is a dental crown necessary after a root canal treatment?
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.
Are Root Canal Treatments painful?
No, our Endodontists ensure that with our root canal dental procedure, you will be comfortable and virtually pain-free. With modern techniques and anesthetics, most of our patients report that they are at ease during the procedure.
What should I expect after a root canal?
For a few days after the root canal treatment procedure is done, you may experience sensitivity to your teeth. This is normal and can be easily managed with some pain relievers. Our dentists or endodontists mention that these side effects would gradually lessen within a week or two.
