Root Canal Treatment
Advanced Dental Microscope For Best Results
Nothing is as good as a natural tooth! Sometimes your natural tooth may need a Root Canal Treatment for it to remain a healthy part of your mouth.
At Dr Joy Dental Clinic in Dubai, our highly experienced Endodontists treat patients requiring a root canal treatment with the latest Dental Microscopes, which allows for a more accurate treatment and results. If you’ve been told you need a root canal treatment, you can find the answers to your questions below.
What Is Root Canal Treatment?
To understand what a Root Canal treatment entails, it helps to know something about the anatomy of the tooth. Inside the tooth, under the white enamel, is a hard layer called the dentin and the soft tissue is known as the pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue, which forms the surrounding hard tissues of the tooth during development.
The pulp extends from the crown of the tooth to the tip of the roots, where it connects to the tissues surrounding the root. The pulp is important during a tooth’s growth and development. Once a tooth is fully mature, it can survive without the pulp, because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it.

Who is an Endodontist?
An Endodontist is dental specialist that has an additional three years of specialty training in endodontics (root canals).
With the lengthy education that an endodontist receives, they are able to perform all aspects of root canal therapy including routine and complex root canals, retreatments and endodontic surgery.
What are the signs of needing a Root Canal Treatment?
Signs to look for include pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness to touch and chewing, discoloration of the tooth, swelling, drainage and tenderness in the lymph nodes as well as nearby bone and gingival tissues.
How does a Root Canal Treatment save the tooth?
The Specialist Endodontist removes the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully cleans and shapes the inside of the canal, and then fills and seals the space. Afterwards, the Specialist Endodontist will place a crown or other restoration on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.
Will I feel pain during or after the procedure?
Many Root Canal procedures are performed to relieve the pain of toothaches caused by pulp inflammation or infection. With modern techniques and anesthetics, most patients report that they are comfortable during the procedure.
For the first few days after the treatment, your tooth may feel sensitive, especially if there was pain or infection before the procedure. This discomfort can be relieved with over-the-counter or prescription medications.
What is the cost of Root Canal Treatment in Dubai?
The cost of root canal treatment in Dubai varies depending on how complex the problem is and which tooth is affected. Molars are more difficult to treat, this is why the fee is usually more.
Generally, a root canal treatment and restoration of the natural tooth is less expensive than the alternative of having the tooth extracted. An extracted tooth must be replaced with a dental implant or dental bridge to restore chewing function and prevent adjacent teeth from shifting. These procedures tend to cost more than endodontic treatments and appropriate restoration. With a root canal treatment you can save your natural teeth and money.
Will the tooth need any special care after a Root Canal Treatment?
You should not chew or bite on the treated tooth until you have had it restored by your dentist. The unrestored tooth is susceptible to fracture, so you should see your dentist for a full restoration as soon as possible.
Otherwise, you need only practice good oral hygiene, including brushing, flossing, and regular checkups and cleanings.
Most treated teeth last as long as any other natural teeth. In a few cases, a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment does not heal or the pain continues. Often when this occurs, the Endodontist redoes the procedure, saving the tooth.
