Root Canal Treatment cost in Hyderabad, India, is a frequently asked question by many patients. It is difficult to say the exact cost of RCT of teeth because multiple factors influence the price of Root Canal Treatment which we are going to discuss here.


Tooth Decay Progress & Treatment

Tooth decay is caused by bacteria and the acids produced by these bacteria erode tooth enamel. This decay can progress deep in to the vascular and nerve supply of the tooth if left untreated quickly. Various stages of tooth decay includes initial demineralization of the enamel, enamel decay, dentin involvement and pulp infection. Early stages of tooth decay are often asymptomatic and the treatment varies based on severity. For early decay, improving oral hygiene and fluoride use can help remineralize teeth. Teeth cavities may require fillings and advanced cases might need root canals to treat infected pulp, followed by crowns for protection. So, when tooth decay has reached the pulp, severe tooth pain is the most common symptom and the tooth needs ROOT CANAL TREATMENT to save it. Regular dental check-ups aid in early detection and less invasive treatments. Preventive measures and prompt intervention are vital to halt tooth decay’s advancement.

Tooth Decay Progress & Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

RCT or Root Canal Treatment is a dental procedure used to treat a tooth with infected or damaged pulp and eliminate the bacteria. During RCT, the infected pulp is removed, and the interior of the tooth is cleaned, disinfected and sealed with gutta-percha, a rubber like material, to prevent further infection. This procedure saves the infected natural tooth and a crown is usually placed on the RCT treated tooth to strengthen it. Root Canal Treatment when performed by an experienced endodontist (Root Canal Specialist), has a high success rate and restores the appearance and function of the tooth, preventing the need for extraction. RCT is a painless procedure and is performed by senior endodontists at FMS Dental.
