How Much Does A Root Canal Cost?

Root canal treatment cost Sydney varies greatly on the extent of infection, complexity of the procedure, location of the dentist, and the number of canals present per tooth.

Root canal treatment is a common procedure that aims to save an infected tooth. It is the recommended treatment for these situations:

  • Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures:

If you experience extreme sensitivity to temperatures, it may be an indication that a tooth is infected or damaged, it may have an opening to the pulp tissue.

  • Severe tooth pain:

If toothache does not go away with over-the-counter pain relievers, it may be a sign that the pulp has undergone irreversible inflammation and tooth restoration is not an option anymore.

  • Swollen gums or presence of gumboil:

This means that the tooth has caused swelling on its surrounding structures, which is caused by inflamed pulp tissue inside the tooth.

  • Discolouration or darkening of the tooth:

In this instance, if the dental pulp has become infected and necrosed, it stops the blood supply on the tooth which gives the tooth its natural colour. And because the tooth is not getting any nutrients from the dental pulp, it will begin to die, and slowly go black or grayish in colour. 

  • Cracked or chipped tooth:

A tooth that has been fractured can expose the dental pulp to bacteria which will then cause infection and inflammation.
