The root canal treatment, also called endodontic treatment, consist in removing the dental pulp infected due to a fracture, caries or trauma.
This procedure allows saving the tooth that would otherwise be lost. Moreover, if the infection is not treated it can expand through the root canal creating a hole in a jaw bone.
The material used for filling the root canal will probably last for a lifetime, however in long term it may be necessary to replace the amalgam or the crown. A good oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist are very important since the caries can attack the devitalized teeth also.
The price of a root canal treatment depends on a number of tooth canals that has to be cleaned.
Prices in Serbia are from 9 Euros for incisors or canines to 26 Euros for molars.
