No one looks forward to a root canal. They’re painful, inconvenient, and if you live in a western country like Australia, New Zealand, or the UK, they are also terribly expensive. In fact, many people avoid the dentist, and simply suffer through their ailment, because they don’t think that they can afford to get the issue fixed. But this is not necessarily the case. Every year, people are packing up and heading abroad to get the dental care that they so desperately need, but can’t afford at home. In this article, you will discover how a Johor Baru root canal can save you some serious money!
What is a root canal, and do I really need one?
A root canal, is a dental procedure in which a tooth that is rotting or infected is restored to a comfortable and functional state. The “canal,” or cavity, in a tooth, is prone to infection and decay if not cared for properly. The inside will essentially deteriorate, eventually causing the patient to feel discomfort or pain radiating from the tooth. It is quite an inconvenience to patients, and will get worse over time if left untreated. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may be in need of a root canal: extreme toothache or pain when eating, abnormal sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, dark color forming on tooth, or swollen gums are all indicators of a problem.
What is the procedure?
During a root canal, a dentist will first x-ray the tooth, and administer an anesthetic. Then they will go into the mouth, and drill out the center of the tooth, removing the rotten pulpy bits, and shaping the cavity for the filling. Then a material will be injected into the open tooth cavity and sealed, thus restoring functionality to the tooth. A root canal is not considered to be a serious or dangerous procedure, and patients should expect the treatment to be completed in less than 1 day.
