The cost quoted above is indicative and should not be taken as the final cost of the surgery. The final cost can be ascertained after the surgeon has evaluated the patient. The cost in Indian Rupees can vary based on exchange rate.
Root Canal Treatment Cost in India starts from US $80 and varies depending on the material used, your oral health, medical history-if any, dental surgeon, facility and the city where you choose to get the root canal treatment done.
Factors that affect Root Canal Treatment Cost in India
Dental Surgeon's Fees
An important expense when it comes to your dental treatment is going to be your dental surgeon's fees. IndiCure recommends only experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering great results. Although the cost may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, the results will be amazing.
There are many different types of tooth materials that the dentist can use for root canal treatment. Each has its pros and cons and the type of material the dentist uses will depend on the needs of the patient. More often than not, opting for good quality material makes financial sense in the long-run rather than going in for a cheap material that will not last long. During your initial consultation, your dentist will help you decide which materials are an option based on your oral health, tooth concerns, and budget.
Number of Teeth to be treated
More the number of teeth to be treated, the higher the cost of your overall treatment will be. Besides, the cost of the tooth crown will add to the overall cost of the treatment.
Extent of Tooth Damage
The higher the level of decay or damage to your tooth, the higher the cost of your treatment. If you choose a tooth crown to repair damage after root canal therapy, the cost of your procedure will be higher because your dentist must first remove the infection from your tooth.
Having your tooth crown treatment in an accredited dental facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility also affects the initial quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be affordable.
Properly done RCT will last a lifetime with a proper crown accompanying it. Therefore, one would opt for a suitable dental crown. There are specific reasons and conditions for crown requirement such as after RCT, since the tooth is without nerve, and blood supply is brittle. Gross dental caries covering 2/3 of the crown portion of natural teeth are required. The more crowns you have to place, the higher the quote.
We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is inclusive and affordable at the same time.
Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the surgeon.

What is Root Canal Treatment ?
Root Canal treatment in India, commonly known as RCT is an endodontic treatment in which the diseased or damaged pulp tissue at the centre of the tooth is removed and the space is filled and sealed, to remove infected tissue and prevent future infections. This procedure treats the infection of the blood or nerve supply of a tooth (called pulp) caused due to tooth decay or injury.
Root Canal treatment in India is an advanced version of RCT which is done through lasers, and helps the procedure to be completed in just one painless sitting, ensuring complete sterilization of infected root canals.
Disease causes leading to Root Canal Treatment:
Tooth consists of a pulp chamber at its centre which has a nerve ending. Trauma or infection to this nerve leads to RCT. Causes for RCT include:
Trauma to the tooth or previous trauma that was left untreated
Tooth abscess and infection
Signs and symptoms indicating an RCT
Severe tooth pain on chewing
Sustained sensitivity or pain to heat or cold after the stimuli is removed
Swollen tender gums adjacent to it
Am I a good Candidate?
Cases where tooth can be retained even though caries were involved with the dental pulp, gross tooth destruction with pulp involvement and good bone support to the pulp involving tooth is the criteria for RCT.
How is Root Canal Treatment done?
An x-ray of the entire tooth is called a periapical x-ray. Then a rubber dam is placed for isolation of the area. An opening is made directly above the pulp chamber to give access to it. Tiny instruments called files are used to remove diseased tissue and nerve manually or by slow speed rotary instruments.
An x-ray is taken again to determine the root length. After making sure that the entire nerve is removed so that there is no re-infection or pain, the apex of the root is closed. The root canals are then cleaned and dried completely with absorbent paper points.
Gutta Percha points are used to fill and seal the tooth roots. Any remnant caries are removed and a temporary filling or permanent filling is done. A crown is later placed on this RCT tooth since it becomes brittle with time due to lack of blood and nerve supply.
What is the Recovery after Root Canal Treatment like?
There is a possibility of mild pain or discomfort which can be relieved by painkillers. Antibiotics are given to prevent uneventful healing without infections.
What Results Can I Expect from Root Canal Treatment?
RCT helps you maintain your natural smile, continue eating the foods you love and limits the need for ongoing dental work. With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment can last a lifetime.

Got my teeth fixed and boob job done with IndiCure in India. I am extremely satisfied and definitely plan to come back again for my tummy tuck as well. Great Job!
My visit to India for my dental treatment has been very fruitful and I would certainly like to thank IndiCure for the same. They have been highly professional and arranged everything very well. Shweta was great with her replies and my doctor was extremely nice and accommodative.
Good work done.
I've had extensive treatment done to basically fix my entire mouth. Dr. Karishma impressed me with her thoroughness, gentleness, and genuine concern for her patients. I made the right choice by coming to India with IndiCure.
I'm quite pleased with my current smile. I'll just say that the doctor is fantastic and quite helpful. What I obtained today is a treasure for the rest of my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you IndiCure!

Frequently Asked Questions
1. How long does it take to recover from Root Canal Treatment?
Most patients are able to resume their daily work and routine activities after around 10 days to 2 weeks of the surgery. However, you will need anywhere between 8 to 12 weeks for full recovery. Strenuous exercises and rigorous activities should wait for at least 10-12 weeks even if you feel you have regained the strength and are up to it.
2. How painful is Root Canal Treatment?
The surgery is done under general anesthesia and you will have moderate to severe pain when you wake up. Your surgeon will prescribe you pain medication to control the pain. It is normal to feel tired after the procedure. Your breasts will probably feel tender, sensitive, swollen and bruised for a few days after the surgery. But you can expect to feel better and stronger each day and should be able to return to routine activities within 10-12 days of the surgery.
Our nursing staff is extremely supportive and would be there to help you 24*7 during your hospital stay.

Thank you IniCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in selling up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare team. Your Professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I have never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated my Dad and we are so grateful for that.

Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.
Steve Gofast recommends IndiCure Health Tours. May 21, 2019
The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
