Root canal treatments in Argentina are a type of endodontic treatment offered at very competitive prices, this country being a reputed dental tourism destination. The term “endodontic” derives from the Greek “endo” which means “inside” and “odont” which is “tooth”. These dental treatments abroad are undertaken in order to treat the inside of the teeth, saving them from extraction.
How do root canal treatments in Argentina save the teeth?
The dentist eliminates the inflamed or infected tooth pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth), attentively cleans and shapes the inside of the root canal, then fills and seals the tooth. After this, a second visit might be required in order to have a crown or another type of tooth restoration placed to protect and reinstate full functioning. After being treated, the tooth functions normally as a healthy one.
Root canal treatment procedure
Root canal treatments in Argentina usually require one or two visits to the dentist while taking a dental tourism holiday and consist of the following steps:
1. Examination: the dentist examines and x-rays the tooth, after which he or she administers a local anesthetic. When the tooth becomes numb, the dentist puts a little protective sheet (a dental dam) over the area to isolate the tooth and maintain it clean from saliva.
2. Opening in the tooth crown: the dentist opens the crown of the tooth. He or she utilizes extremely small devices to clean the pulp from the pulp chamber and root canals and to form the space for filling.
3. Root canal filling: the dentist fills the root canals with a biocompatible material – commonly a material similar to rubber called gutta-percha. This material is placed with an adhesive cement to secure the total sealing of the root canals. Most of times, a provisional filling is placed in order to seal the opening. The provisional filling will be removed before the restoration of the tooth.
4. After the last visit to your dentist abroad, you have to return to have a crown or another restoration placed on the tooth in order to protect it and give back its normal function.
