Root Canal Treatment
It is a treatment of the canal inside the root of the tooth. Each tooth has a root/roots which has a canal/canals that are filled with nerves and blood vessels. When these tissues get infected, they need to be removed and the inside of the root needs to be cleaned and sealed. In layman terms, Root Canal Treatment (RCT ) is a procedure to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or that has become infected.
At Apex, a root canal is done with the precision it deserves to treat and save a tooth that is damaged, infected or badly decayed. Done in two stages, the nerves and pulp are first removed and the infected area inside the tooth is effectively cleaned and sealed.
Root Canal Treatment
Why do you need a Root Canal?
A seemingly harmless cavity in the tooth leaves an opening where bacteria can enter, reside and multiply. If left untreated, these bacteria cause infections and form pockets or abscesses filled with pus up at the roots of the tooth.
This may cause severe pain and swelling that could spread to other areas of the face or head. In fact, some infections can bring about bone loss around the tip of the tooth’s roots. Constant pain, tenderness, and swelling of the gums, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold and discoloration of the tooth are signs that one may need a root canal. A Dental consultation would be the best way to determine the best way to deal with each individual case.
How much does it cost?
The cost of the procedure largely depends on the factors such as the severity of the damage, the number of canals and the restoration method.

Facts you ought to know
What you must know about Root Canals:
- Tooth aches can be painful. Root Canals are not. Root Canals are carried out to alleviate that dreadful pain
- Many may say “Extraction is better than a Root Canal “. Our primary objective is to save your natural teeth if we can help it because that is always the best option.
- Root Canals are thought to be very lengthy and need several visits. Our dentist will strive to complete the entire procedure within 1 or 2 sittings. Complex cases may need an additional sitting.
- Some opine that only a painful tooth requires a Root Canal. That is far from the truth. Teeth that require a Root Canal may not always be painful.

Excellent experience. Great customer service and aftercare (even whatsapp follow ups on pain and recovery). Had issues with a molar I had previously done a root canal on at another clinic and Dr. Neha and Dr. Shyam were very knowledgeable and honest and helped me select the best treatment solution. Highly recommend to anyone. Best dental experience to date for me.

Firstly I am so glad that I have come across such an amazing team at Apex. It was my first time to try a dental clinic in Dubai and I was ready for the trial and error task ahead. I done some research on the Internet and found excellent reviews on Apex so that was my starting point and I can confidently say my ending point. I will not be trying any one else. My experience started from entering the reception to lovely smiling and welcoming faces. Then I had 3 visits with Dr. Neha whom performed a root canal. She was so informative as she carried out the procedure, knew exactly how to make her patient comfortable and never over looked any discomfort that I could possibly experience or was experiencing. Absolute empathy. This is as enjoyable experience could be at a dentist when going through such a procedure. Then my 5 year old had to be seen a couple days later and Dr.Neha was not available but daughter needed a filling and she was in pain so had no choice but to take the doctor available whom was Dr. Mays Al Ajeel who was also amazing with our daughter. She used patient relaxing and distracting techniques on my daughter to examine her and it was such a pleasant for her. Dr Mays also another great practitioner. We were so worried how our daughter would be and that was also made a walk in the park thanks to the professional staff at Apex. And last but not least I need an additional letter from patient relations for my internal use which could be regarded as a request outside of the service offered by Apex and they also satisfied my request so a big thank you Dr Sruthi on that. Honestly I’m not no unverified review but am truly a very happy customer and could not recommend Apex anymore especially for the ones I have mentioned names and vouch for above. I’m not blowing no ones horn but if you want to feel confident that you will be dealt with as someone should when in need of such services GO SEE APEX...you will not be let down. Good luck as I’m still smiling! 😊.

Apex Medical and Dental clinic is one of the best health care experience I have had in Dubai. Dr. Neha in particular is a brilliant expert at what she does. I went to her with an extremely painful root canal and infection situation. Not only did Dr. Neha give me a completely painless treatment; her care, walking me through the process at every step and regular proactive check ups after each session are an example of top class over all health care experience. Certainly recommend Apex clinic and Dr. Neha to any one looking for an excellent dental facility in Dubai.

I've been in Dubai for 10 years and I must say this has been my best experience with regards to dental work. Apex medical staff take a real interest in their patients and deliver a service that suits the individuals needs. I've had various appointments with Doctor Neha Singh and she was excellent. She was professional and cared about my well being. She followed up to check on my condition after every visit. I would recommend them to everyone.
