Root canal treatment
There is a living nerve in the middle of teeth and molars. This nerve can be damaged by a leaking filling, tooth decay, overload (grinding/clamping) or when the tooth has received a hard blow. Nerve pain often manifests itself in a toothache, for example spontaneous pain or pain when drinking cold or biting. At that time, the nerve is so inflamed that the pain can only be remedied with a root canal treatment. During this treatment, the nerve is removed from the tooth and the empty space that is created is thoroughly cleaned and filled with a special root canal cement. In this way, the source of inflammation is removed and the inflammation is prevented from spreading further.

What does a root canal treatment cost?
The costs depend on the degree of difficulty of the tooth to be treated and the number of nerve channels. Consult your dentist for a tailor-made budget. To find out whether you are entitled to reimbursement, please contact your health insurance.
