Root Canal Treatments in Hungary Image
Root canal treatments in Hungary, also known as endodontic treatments, are dental treatments abroad which treat infections at the center of the teeth. By undergoing a root canal treatment, dentists try to save the tooth that is damaged by trauma or decay by eliminating the bacteria from the root canal system.

Tooth anatomy 

In order to fully comprehend the root canal treatments in Hungary, it is helpful to know a little bit about the tooth anatomy. A tooth is made of two parts:

•    The crown: the part which is visible from the mouth;
•    The root: it extends into the jaw bone, fixing the tooth into its place. 

The root canal system comprises the dental pulp (made up of soft tissue which contains nerves and blood vessels) which spreads from the crown to the end of the root. 

A tooth can have more root canals. 

What does the root canal treatment in Hungary consist of?

If a tooth is threatened by decay or cracking by a possible future infection, a pulpectomy (removal of the dental pulp tissue) can be performed in order to avoid such an infection. 

The root canal treatment in Hungary is a procedure that requires skills and takes time. Most treatments will require several visits to the dentist abroad. After the infected pulp is removed, any abscesses will also be drained. Then, the root canal is cleaned and shaped so that it can fit the filling. A temporary filling is fixed in and the tooth is left to heal. At a later visit, the tooth is checked in order to verify that all the infections have cleared, and then the tooth is filled with a permanent filling.
