Root Canal Treatment in Goa

Filling the gap in dentistry.

Root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth that is painful instead of removing it. A well-executed Root Canal Therapy will be a lot less painful than what you assume it to be. We at Smile Craft pride on providing one of the Best and most Affordable Root Canal Treatment in Goa.

What  is a Root Canal Treatment?

A Root Canal Treatment is conducted by a Root Canal Specialist, Also known as an Endodontist when a patient comes in with a decayed or damaged tooth that might be infected. It is advisable to go through with the procedure rather than extracting the tooth as retaining natural teeth is always better than getting a false one after an extraction and not replacing teeth after extraction can affect the health of the remaining teeth. The soft inner chamber of the tooth known as the pulp –contains Nerves, Blood vessels and Connective tissue. When the pulp gets damaged or infected due to a chip in the tooth or dental decay that allows bacteria to enter, A Root Canal procedure needs to be performed in order to remove the infected pulp and clean and seal the inside of the tooth.

Root Canal Procedure?

How  Long Does a Root Canal Treatment Take?

The duration of a Root Canal Procedure varies depending upon the severity of infection. Some Root Canal Treatment can be completed in a single sitting and are known as Single Visit Root Canal Treatment however, If the tooth is badly infected it might involve multiple sittings as your Endodontist has to ensure that all the infection has healed prior to filling the tooth.

    After reading positive reviews, I wanted to give it a try, I must say I had a very good experience. I had a filling done with another dentist for my front tooth, it was not matching my tooth colour.When smiling people used to tell me I have lipstick on my teeth and I had to tell them that it’s a filling and not lipstick. Dr. Schuyler had replaced the filling which is matching my teeth colour. He is very informative and explains everything in details which is easy for the patient to understand. Very happy with their service. In future will be getting my implants done with him. Highly recommended.

    Cool Dentist period!!I am visiting this clinic from past 3 months, got the best treatment possible. I had a front chipped tooth which Dr Schuyler fixed and made it look as it was naturally ,which boosted my confidence in social and professional life. I was treated by Dr Anthea also she was the sweetest doctor ever taking care of her patients in the most professional way. The staff is too good with the patients , giving follow-up calls and reminders in a very polite and gentle way.Overall one of the best Dentist clinic. Worth it.

    With the pandemic in 2019, I never consulted a dentist until I moved back to Goa, India, last month (June 2022).As I was googling and looking for a good dentist in Margao, I came across - Smile Craft. Their website was nice and fancy among all the other dental clinics, but I wasn't sure if they were the best.Yet, I thought I would give them a shot. My primary concern was my molar which went wrong after I did a root canal years back. So I got my appointment booked and was consulted by Dr. Schuyler.The first thing I mentioned to him was let's extract the molar instead of fixing it, as I had no hope of improving it. However, Dr. Schuyler wasn't ready to extract it and believed it still could be fixed. Dr. Schuyler and their team always provide the best advice to get that beautiful smile crafted :)Well, If it could be all fixed - I was all up for it. After a couple of visits, my teeth are as good as they could be. Their team uses A1 quality dental filling; you can't even notice you have a filling. It matches your tooth color, unlike some dentists using cheap quality, which feels like POP stuck on your teeth.Also, they're very cautious while completing their dental procedure with no pain at all. I nearly dozed off once.I think the Smile Craft team is one of the best out there. I recommend it to everyone looking to get their smile crafted by the best team - SMILE CRAFT is the place!!

I have done 1 filling, and one tooth implant ,which was done with gentle care and no pain, during the implant Dr explain everything to me what he was doing which I think is very professional.Overall my experience in the surgery was amazing. I would like to say special thanks to Dr Schuyler ,and everyone who works at Smile Craft ,you all doing a great job.Highly recommend

    Dr Schuyler is one of the best dentists in Goa! Had visited him for a couple of tooth colored fillings and was very impressed. His work stands out, I cannot even tell that my tooth has a filling! It looks so natural! The clinic is clean and the staff is very polite and professional. Yes, it did take me time to get an appointment, but now I realize why. Certainly recommend Smile Craft to anyone looking at getting quality dental treatment done.
