Home  /  Root Canal - Dental News  /  Root canal treatment cost way less than you think.

Got a tooth or two that are badly damaged. No need to give up on them – and here’s why.

Here at MyDental, we like to think of ourselves as a dental practice that listens to our patients when they tell us their concerns, their worries, or their ambitions for their smile. Very often, when we recommend a particular form of treatment, they’re quite happy to go along with it – and happily acquiesce to whatever we recommend.

Occasionally, however, this pattern is broken. And nowhere is this more obvious than when we have to recommend a root canal. It’s not the root canal cost that worries them (as it’s very affordable these days) but rather the misconception that this is some form of ‘dental torture’.

Time and time again, we hear the same fears coming to the fore. For whatever reason, root canals have the reputation of being a very serious process, with lots of pain involved. The truth is very different, and we know what we’re talking about, as we’ve had this treatment ourselves within the past six months.


What’s involved in a root canal?

Let’s start from the beginning and explain what the process involves – and what your dentist will do to make sure it’s not unduly uncomfortable.

First up, how long does it take? Well, the fact is that this is a two-visit process, with each visit taking over an hour. But with the brilliant repartee of our dentists plus our excellent choice in music, that hour will simply fly by.

Next, the issue of pain. In any procedure that might cause discomfort, your dentist calls on the miracle of modern anaesthetics to make sure that you don’t feel a thing. And even better, the quality of modern anaesthetics means that they wear off very quickly, meaning that you can attend a business meeting shortly after treatment.


Next up, the issue of spondulicks.

Root canal treatment cost these days is a fraction of what you might have suspected, as the process is very much streamlined here at MyDental. And remember that you don't have to shell out the full amount at once. You can avail of our 0% Dental Finance Plan, which lets you spread the cost over three, six or nine months.


So what is a root canal used for?

Well, your dentist may recommend it in cases where a tooth has become badly inflamed or badly infected. It can also be called on in case of an accident, or where the enamel on your tooth has become very badly worn.


Will you know there’s trouble on the way?

Yes – there are a number of warning signs to watch out for. It could be sharp pain, or a newfound intolerance of either heat or cold. Another ‘watch-out’ is tenderness or swelling around the gum area, or perhaps a growing discolouration in the tooth.

In some cases, however, you may not be aware of ANY of these symptoms, which s why it's so important to go along for regular check-ups, when your dentist can spot the impending signs of trouble.

If you DO have to undergo a root canal treatment but are worried about root canal treatment cost Ireland is a very affordable country when it comes to treatment – and here at MyDental, we take affordability to even newer heights.
