ROOT CANAL COST
THE MOST ADVANCED LASER TECHNOLOGY
What is Root Canal
Root canal treatment is a therapy done on severely decayed and infected teeth that can no longer be saved through dental restorations. Patients that need this treatment present with an infected and inflamed dental pulp.
When this happens, we carefully remove the pulp and use instruments to clean and shape the root canal/s of the affected tooth. Once that’s done, we place a dental crown as the final restoration.

Each case varies. Depending on the infection, we may do a single visit root canal treatment or it may take multiple appointments to ensure success.
All dentists are trained to perform root canal treatment. For troublesome cases, an endodontist may be needed.
Endodontists are dental specialists that have a focused practice in treating diseases of the pulp, root canal, and surrounding structures.
We have accumulated formidable experience in endodontics as a special interest field. Though we’re not specialists in the strict sense of the word, we are equally adept at treating endodontic conditions. Compared to endodontists, the root canal cost in our clinic is very affordable, & one of the reasons our clients choose us to help them with their root canal treatment.

What is the emergency management of root canal pain?
For emergency cases like swelling or excruciating pain, you may call us immediately at 02 8331 6677 for an appointment.
Pain medications will only provide temporary relief.
Seek dental treatment as soon as you can to make sure the infection gets appropriate attention from a trained dentist.
What can happen if you wait too long before starting treatment?
Prevention is better than cure. Avoid stressful complications through regular dental visits. With a decayed tooth, we recommend that you set an appointment as soon as you feel the symptoms and notice the associated signs.
Delaying dental treatment can lead to swelling and severe pain. The worst consequence would be an unrestorable tooth which would lead to extraction.
It’s also wise to note that delaying treatment can lead to an increase in future root canal cost.
Why do we need to remove the pulp during root canal treatment?
When and if the pulp is already exposed or infected, the only choice would be to remove it to save the tooth.
Because we find the pulp in both the crown and roots of the tooth, its infection may lead to swelling of the surrounding areas of the teeth, bone, and face.

What are the symptoms that show you need root canal treatment?
The most common symptom of pulp inflammation is constant throbbing pain.
Many patients describe this as a very discomforting experience that affects daily life, including sleep. Severe cases may present with swelling.
What causes root canal pain?
Because the dental pulp contains nerves, it is a highly sensitive organ.
A severely decayed or fractured tooth may expose the pulp to the outside environment or bacteria. This results in intense pain for the patient.
At Smile Concepts, we give you the best care and provide a comfortable and painless treatment throughout your appointment.
What is the dental pulp?
The dental pulp is found in the pulp chamber and root canals of teeth. It is a soft tissue that is comprised of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. A vital tooth depends on the pulp for nourishment.
When the pulp is severely infected, we do a root canal treatment to save the tooth. Gone are the days when an infected pulp immediately warrants a tooth extraction. By only removing the dental pulp, we preserve the remaining tooth structure.
- Your comfort is our top priority. We will first administer anesthesia to ensure a painless procedure.
- We place a rubber dam to isolate the infected tooth. We do this to ensure safety of the patient and the success of the treatment.
- We create access to the dental pulp by drilling through the tooth to reach the pulp chamber.
- We remove the infected pulp is and the root canals are cleaned and disinfected to prepare for a special root canal filling.
- As mentioned, all cases are unique. We can finish some in one sitting while some need several appointments to drain the infection properly.
- If this is the case, we place a temporary filling on the tooth until you come in for your next visit.
- When the tooth is completely disinfected and cleaned, a special filling called a gutta percha is placed inside the canals.
- Then it will be sealed.
- As a last step, we place a crown to seal the tooth properly. This is important to prevent fracture and guarantee that your tooth lasts for a long time.

What is the Root Canal Cost?
The cost of root canal treatment varies in the same way that no two teeth are exactly alike. The root canal cost also depends on several factors like:
- Position of the tooth in the oral cavity
- The number of tooth roots
- The curvature of the roots
- The difficulty of the case
A standard root canal treatment cost starts FROM $950 and can range up to $2500 AUD depending on the complexity of the case, the number of roots involved and most importantly, the experience & expertise of the clinician. We are also partnered with unique companies that can help you divide the root canal cost over several months, interest-free, so that you can make sound decisions on the health of your teeth, with no financial stress.

Have you had root canal done before?
Patients that have had a root canal treatment done in the past & present with a re-infection should expect an increased rate because of the complexity of redoing the case.
Patient satisfaction & safety are always our predominant concerns. If the success of the treatment is questionable, we may suggest extraction and dental implants instead.
How long will the restored root canal treated tooth last?
There is no specific assurance for how long a root canal treated tooth can last. Patient compliance coupled with our expertise can make it last a long time. This can only happen if the patient commits to regular dental check-ups to maintain a healthy oral cavity. g time
What happens after root canal treatment?
After root canal treatment, the most ideal tooth restoration would be a crown. This would ensure the proper seal of the tooth from further infection and it also serves as a strong protective covering to avoid fracture.
