Although root canal treatment has a high degree of success, it is a biological procedure, so it cannot be guaranteed to be 100% successful.
In cases where the treatment has not been successful (ie the infection has not resolved), the tooth may require an extraction, re-treatment or surgery (remedial work is not included in the cost).
Instead of root canal treatment, an alternative treatment option is an extraction (removal of the tooth) or to monitor the tooth and extract when problematic.
We are obliged to make you aware of possible unforeseen complications that may occur during/after treatment:
A crown is recommended after root canal treatment to prevent fracture of the tooth (and possible loss of the tooth as a result). You will be referred back to your own dentist for the provision of this. The cost of this should be discussed with your own dentist.
An estimate for the treatment has been provided, however, if unforeseen complications occur which would result in further treatment, then you will be informed if extra charges apply.
