Root Canal Treatment

My 1 tooth has deep decay, Doctor advised for R.C.T , he said that the decay might have reached the nerve. Though I am not facing any issues. Is it okay to wait for 5-6 months or I have to do the treatment right now? what would be the cost of whole treatment (RCT for 1 tooth and 6 tooth having little cavities.)

Do not wait for the problem to occur in a more severe way. Seek a treatment as soon as possible, and always trust your doctor for the advice they give. Rct starts from 1500 onwards depending upon shape of the toot, type of material used, no. of sittings amd doctor's experience. Restoration again ranges from 250 to 1200.

Tooth decay mean you have an unhealthy mouth, keeping it for long mean giving time for bacteria to spread further more, so it is advisable to get treatment done as soon as possible. As per the cost of RCT,2200/- for one tooth, and for restoration of one tooth from 400 to 700 .
