Each year thousands of patients from all over the world come to Costa Rica to have root canal treatments here because of the low costs of these procedures compared to those from their own countries and high quality of dental treatments abroad offered by dentists here.
What are root canal treatments in Costa Rica?
Teeth have a center, called the pulp chamber, where the nerves and blood vessels are found. When the pulp chamber is damaged, it grows inflamed or infected.
If a tooth is physically altered by an injury, there may be no symptoms a few days later or a longer amount of time. Lack of pain generally points out the death of the nerve. This is named necrosis. It is crucial to treat this condition with root canal (endodontic) treatments in Costa Rica.
What is the reason of root canal treatments?
When there is necrosis or another type of affection, anomalies like cysts can develop around the tooth roots, inside the bone and can be diagnosed by the dentist abroad only with x-rays.
Abscesses, granulomas, cysts and other infections can develop in the surrounding bone and soft tissues and some of these could even spread to significant structures, putting the patient’s life at risk. Injury affects tooth vitality and could also cause internal or external loss of the tooth root.
