Root Canal Costs in Dubai and why they vary
May 03 2017 By Dr. Iyad Estoiny - General Dentist, Implantologist
A lot of people get a root canal treatment at least once in their lifetimes. The procedure is generally considered a basic one and only in certain cases and situations does it take major role. The whole ordeal may sound painful to some as it involves your teeth but a root canal is usually the solution to tooth pain and discomfort.
A Root Canal Treatment (RCT) or Endodontic treatment as they are professionally called, is the treatment of tooth pulp. This pulp can sometimes get infected, inflamed or die and when that happens, you will need to have it removed to relieve yourself of any pain you could be experiencing. Root canal costs in Dubai are generally varied and gives you plenty to choose from. GMC Clinics has a dedicated dental service section that offers everything from general dentistry to cosmetic and paediatric dentistry.
So why is it that different clinics or dentists charge different amounts for RCT? There are a lot of aspects to consider when getting an RCT. Here are a few of the deciding factors.
General dentists can perform routine RCT on patients however when there are complications or if the patient’s condition has had some time to set in, they may have to call an Endodontist. Since Endodontists are highly skilled and have more years of experience, they may end up charging a different rate than if you were to be with a general dentist.
Where your RCT needs to be performed is also a factor that affects how much it will cost you. We have three types of teeth which called Front, Bicuspids and Molars. Front teeth generally have a single canal and are therefore easy to perform while bicuspids and molars have anywhere up to three canals.
What your RCT includes may also affect pricing such as X-rays to identify where and what the problem is with your teeth. Dental crowns are sometimes used alongside tooth fillings to cover up teeth that have been through RCT. This too can add to the price of an RCT. Finally, any follow-up visits to your dentist so that they can keep a track of your treatment may also affect the cost of an RCT.
These are a few of the reasons why root canal costs in Dubai vary from one clinic to another. When coming to GMC Clinics, you can be sure that you are getting the most professional services at the best rates in the region. Caring about health, it’s in our DNA.
