What is root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure performed to treat an infection or inflammation within the pulp (innermost of a tooth).

Root canal therapy is recommended as a way to save a tooth that might otherwise need to be extracted. The procedure involves removing the infected or damaged pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the root canals, and sealing the space with a filling material. The tooth is then often restored with a dental crown to provide strength and protection.

Cost and subsidies

The cost depends on various factors. Amount payable by patient = total clinic charges - CHAS subsidies. MediSave typically does not cover general dental treatments unless they involve surgical procedures deemed medically necessary. Non-surgical dental treatments, including root canal treatment, are not eligible for claims under the MediSave.
