If a root canal is indicated by your dentist, then you have two options: undergo treatment, or have your tooth extracted.

Unfortunately, once the tooth pulp becomes infected it will recur unless the infected cavity is cleaned out and filled. Bacterial infections from dental abscesses can be dangerous. Infections can quickly spread to the jaw, neck or brain because of their close proximity.

With a dental trip to San Jose, Costa Rica, it's possible to save two thirds on the price of treatment with Dental Departures. Keep reading to find out more. 

Is San Jose a Good Option for Dental Tourists?

For those based in North America, the answer is a firm “yes.” Most people fly into Costa Rica via the airport in San Jose, meaning you could stay in the city to get your dental work and then head elsewhere in the country afterward. Costa Rica is a small country and San Jose is well connected so it’s reasonably easy to get places.

San Jose might not have the same draw as other capital cities around the world, although there are plenty of parks and museums, as well as restaurants, bars and other nightlife options. Some interesting neighborhoods include the upmarket Escazu, only around 7 km west of downtown San Jose with a large expat community. Set out on a hill overlooking San Jose, here you’ll find bowling alleys, a country club, an English movie theatre, a championship golf course, a modern shopping mall and excellent restaurants—all you really need for a comfortable city stay.
