Worried about the cost of root canal treatment and how you can afford it? WIth Dental Departures you can save around 80% on root canals in Agua Prieta with our quality-checked dentists. Read on to find out more.
Root canal treatment may be quite a long procedure in some instances and is, therefore, quite expensive. It also requires the services of a dentist who is specialised in this treatment, called an endodontist. Traveling to Agua Prieta to have your root canal procedure done by an endodontist will save you money - and even your tooth if you cannot afford to have it done at home.
Very often the first sign that you may need a root canal will be because you have in infection. Before any root canal treatment can be embarked upon it will be necessary to ensure the infection is cleared first. You may need to make multiple trips to the dentist to complete the procedure, so traveling to somewhere reasonably accessible – and that doesn’t cost you too much in flights and accommodation costs, may be prudent if you want to save money.
Agua Prieta’s close proximity to the US border makes this possible for many Americans – and it is a particularly scenic part of the world to spend some time in between visits to the dentist.
Finding a dentist in Agua Prieta who specialises in root canals is simple using the Dental Departures website. We have quality-checked our dentists, so you know you will be getting the appropriate care and expertise that you require.
The days when Mexican dentists did not have the qualifications or knowledge to carry out some dental treatments is long-gone, and you will find our dentists in Agua Prieta have training by and professional memberships of the same institutions dentists in the United States have.
Of significant importance is the cost of root canals in Agua Prieta. Many people are faced with losing their tooth because they just cannot afford the price their dentist in the United States is charging. They are then faced with having an ugly gap in their dentition because other dental treatments designed to fill the gap are also too
No root canal is the same. Some teeth only have one root, but others three or four. This will affect how long the treatment takes. Also, additional time may be required if an infection needs to be cleared up, and yet more time if the tooth requires a crown restoration.
A straightforward root canal can usually be completed in one or two appointments. Antibiotics to clear an infection need to have been commenced 10 days prior to any root canal treatment.
The actual procedure involves your dentist drilling down into the soft pulp of the tooth and removing the infected material from the pulp chamber and the root canals. The ensuing chambers are cleansed thoroughly and ultimately filled.
The tooth is usually given a temporary filling as your dentist will want to ensure there is no sign of infection before the tooth is filled permanently, which would cause you further damage and pain if any infection did remain.
You will return to your dentist after a week or so, and if everything is satisfactory the tooth will be permanently filled. If you require a crown impressions will be made at this point and you will have to return again a few days later for it to be fitted.
In some cases it may take up to 2 weeks to complete the whole procedure.
Bigger teeth (i.e. the back teeth) are usually more expensive than a front tooth. In the States the price is around $1,280 just for a root canal, but starts from as little as $150 in Agua Prieta. If you need a crown too the price will be around $1,000 more in the US, but only $550 in Agua Prieta.
Obviously there is a significant difference in the price, but our Agua Prieta dentists will save you a considerable expense, as well as ultimately saving your tooth.
