Root Canal Treatment Abroad - cost, prices, reviews
What is root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment also known as endodontics is required in situation when the nerve or blood supply of the tooth (also called the pulp) is infected through injury or decay.
What is the purpose of root canal treatment?
When the pulp becomes infected, the infection can spread through tooth root canal system. This may at the end lead to an abscess. In case root canal treatment (RCT) is done, the infection will spread out and the tooth may need to be extracted.
Does root canal treatment hurt?
As the procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic patients should feel no difference to having an ordinary filling done.
What does root canal treatment Poland involve?
The objective of root canal treatment is to remove infections from the root canal. The root is cleaned afterwards and filled in order to prevent any further infection. Root canal treatment procedure is time-consuming and skilled. In most of the cases the treatment involves two or more appointments. At the first visit, the infected pulp is removed. All abscesses, which may be found, can also be drained at the same time. Next the root canal is cleaned and shaped ready for the filling. A temporary filling is installed in and the tooth is left to settle. The tooth is checked at the later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled.
How will my tooth look like after the treatment?
With older techniques, a root filled tooth often darkened after treatment. However, with techniques used these days this does not happen any more. In case there is a discolouration, there are multiple treatments available to redeem the natural appearance.
What is the alternative to root canal treatment?
Tooth extraction is the alternative to root canal treatment. After the pulp is destroyed, it cannot heal. It is highly not recommended to leave the infected tooth in the mouth. Even if some patients prefer tooth extraction, it is recommended to keep as many own natural teeth as possible.
What will happen with the tooth after treatment? Will it be safe?
Yes. However, it is recommended to install a crown on the tooth to provide extra strength and support to the tooth. In most of the cases a post/core should be installed after the procedure.
What is a post?
A post also know as core is a metallic structure which is being placed in the body of the root of a tooth after root canal treatment has been finished.
