Root Canal at Randwick Dental Clinic

What is a Root Canal?

You can think of it like a filling that extends deeper into the tooth, sealing off the hollow chamber inside (where a nerve once rested). We recommend them on teeth affected by:

  • Abscesses
  • Severe pain and hypersensitivity
  • Large fractures
  • Deep areas of decay
  • Cracks extending into the root

As with a filling, the tooth gets numbed beforehand to eliminate the risk of any sensitivity. After an opening is created, the diseased nerve is removed and the hollow chamber inside is medicated then sealed off.

Many root canal teeth will benefit from a crown afterward to protect the brittle tooth from breaking. Together, your new restoration and completed endodontic procedure will help you to preserve your tooth for several more years. The dentist can place a provisional crown on the day of your treatment, with a permanent restoration ready to bond in place later. Plus, with our digital scanning, there’s no need for a gooey impression!

Advantages of Rotary Technology

Traditional root canal therapy used to mean making multiple trips to your dentist’s office for treatment. Not anymore! We’ve invested in the most advanced resources available, including rotary tools that allow us to work more efficiently.

As a result, you can enjoy a gentler experience and complete the root canal in just one appointment. Feel free to request a sedation option or watch your favourite movie on one of our ceiling-mounted televisions while you’re here.

Root Canal Treatment Cost

The cost of root canal treatment varies depending on how many canals the tooth has inside. There can be one to four canals and therefore a price range of $1,000 to $2,296.

If you have a Health Fund, you can contact them and learn in advance the rebate amount for the item number for the root canal.

It would usually be some of the following item number: 415, 416, 417, 418.

We offer flexible payment options. On the spot direct rebate is available using HICAPS Health Fund insurance, and offer financing through Denticare and Afterpay. Thanks to our clear estimates, you’ll know exactly what fees are involved before you ever agree to treatment. Easily budget your Invisalign clear aligners with our affordable monthly payments.
