Root canal treatment Amsterdam

A root canal treatment is performed when you are experiencing severe toothache caused by inflamed pulp inside the tooth or molar. To relieve your pain, the nerve must be removed, which also prevents further inflammation. That’s why a root canal treatment is also known as a nerve treatment.

How does root canal treatment work?

We perform a root canal treatment in a number of steps, and if necessary we spread it out over 2 appointments. We do this so that the treatment is as pleasant as possible. When multiple appointments are needed, we try to schedule them as close together as possible. We recommend that you put as little stress on your teeth as possible between appointments.

During the 1st appointment

First, we take an X-ray of your teeth to see how the roots are positioned in your jawbone. Then, you will receive local anesthesia to ensure you don’t experience any pain during the procedure. Afterward, the dentist removes the inflamed tissue by making a small opening in the tooth. The next step involves cleaning the root canals. Once this is done, we use files to prepare the canals for the new filling.

If we can complete the entire root canal treatment in one appointment, you will receive a permanent filling. If you require a second appointment, we will place a temporary filling that will be replaced in the following appointment.

During the 2nd appointment

During the second appointment, the dentist removes the temporary filling. Subsequently, the permanent filling is placed, which consists of cement that is well absorbed by the human body. To ensure a proper and stable closure of the root canal, a post is inserted into the cement, pressing against the canal wall. With the root canal now sealed, it can begin to heal.

What does root canal treatment cost?

If you suffer from a throbbing pain in your tooth, your teeth are sensitive to heat and cold, or your cheek is swollen, chances are you have an inflamed tooth. In case of these symptoms, contact us immediately. Our expert dentist will help you get rid of your symptoms quickly and painlessly with root canal treatment.

Will the treatment be reimbursed?

If you have only a basic health insurance, the treatment costs will not be reimbursed. With an additional dental insurance, the costs are covered. Coverage varies by insurer. It’s possible that the entire treatment is covered, but it’s also possible that only a portion is covered. For more information, it’s best to contact your health insurance provider.

Frequently asked questions about root canal treatment

We receive a lot of emails about root canal treatment. That is why we have listed the most important questions and answers.

Do I need a root canal treatment?

If you suffer from throbbing pain in your tooth or molar, if your teeth are sensitive to heat and cold or if your cheek is swollen, there is a good chance that you have an inflamed tooth or molar. If you experience these symptoms, please contact us immediately. Our expert dentist will help you get rid of your complaints quickly and painlessly with root canal treatment.

Is the treatment painless?

Yes, a root canal treatment is completely painless. Before we start, you will receive a local anesthetic. If you experience pain during the treatment, we will adjust the anesthesia so that you are no longer in pain.

What happens after the treatment?

The anesthesia usually lasts several hours. Once this has worn off, we advise you to be careful with hot food and drinks. Also be careful not to bite your tongue, lip or cheek.

You may also suffer from a sensitive tooth for about 4 days. This after-pain can be easily combated with a painkiller such as ibuprofen or paracetamol. There is also a small chance of swelling. If this is the case, you can contact contact us.
