Root Canal Treatment in Singapore

Also known as endodontic treatment, this procedure is indicated when a cavity on a tooth is too deep to be fixed with a dental filling. This usually happens when the cavity has gone too close to the nerve of the tooth, resulting in pain and discomfort in the tooth.

It can also be required when a tooth has been traumatised (i.e. a sports injury or a fall).

Ashford houses experienced root canal specialists in Singapore. Root canal treatment is done using magnification equipment and single-use materials at our dental clinic in Singapore to ensure the following:

  • Efficiency
  • Safety
  • High success rate
  • Comfort for all our patients

Root canal treatment is indicated when:

  • There has been a crack in the tooth, and the crack extends too close to the pulp or nerve in the tooth. 
  • There has been decay in a tooth and the decay extends too close to the pulp chamber.
  • There has been any cavitation (e.g. from erosion or abrasion) where the cavity extends too close to the pulp chamber.
  • Severely worn down teeth where the wear has extended or exposed the pulp chamber. 
  • There are overly sensitive teeth. 
  • There has been trauma to a tooth or teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions About Root Canal Treatment in Singapore

Is It Painful?

Not at all. Root canal treatment at our dental clinic in Singapore is always done under local anaesthetic, so you will not feel a thing. It is a comfortable and pain-free process.

How Many Visits Will I Need?

It is generally not recommended that root canal treatment be completed in 1 visit. This is because the tooth requires a little bit of time to heal with the medication inside it before the root canal treatment can be completed.

Most root canal treatments are completed within two visits to a dental clinic in Singapore. More complicated cases may require three visits. Each visit can be a week apart, two weeks apart, or even a few days apart. It ultimately depends on your convenience. However, we generally recommend that the duration of root canal treatment does not exceed one month; otherwise, new bacteria can ingress into the tooth, causing further infection.

Does Root Canal Treatment Really Work?

Yes, it does. Studies indicate that root canal treatment done under the right conditions and to a satisfactory standard carries a 98% success rate. At our dental clinic in Singapore, you can expect a high success rate for your root canal treatment.

Do I Need To Have A Crown After My Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment involves removing the pulp and infected tissues from the inside of your tooth and the roots. This tends to make the tooth more brittle and prone to fracture. To avoid this, we recommend that a dental crown (or full coverage cap) be done after your root canal treatment.

However, you do not have to do this immediately. It can be delayed as long as you are aware that the tooth may be in a weakened state, and hence should avoid putting too much pressure on it.

Which Doctor Is Best For Root Canal Treatment?

To receive the best possible care, you should visit a root canal specialist in Singapore that is professionally trained in root canal therapy and dental trauma management.

Is Root Canal Treatment Covered By Medisave?

Unfortunately, root canal treatments cannot be claimed from Medisave in Singapore. The only exception is if your treatment requires a periradicular surgery.

Does CHAS Cover Root Canal Treatment?

Patients with CHAS Orange and Blue cards can receive dental subsidies for root canal treatments in Singapore. Do get in touch with Ashford’s team to find out more about the subsidies you are eligible for and how much you can save.

How Long Is The Root Canal Procedure In Singapore?

An average root canal treatment can take from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on how badly the tooth is damaged. If the infection has spread or if you are having treatment on a larger tooth with multiple roots, more work has to be done and will require more time.
