  1. How is a quality Root canal performed?

When a tooth is having problems the ideal way to save it may be a root canal! The problem is usually decay in the cavity at the center of the tooth or the root canal itself that has become infected or damaged. The soft tissue in the root canal contains nerve tissue and pulp that could over time result in an abscess at the root of the tooth. The result is pain and swelling around the tooth. This could in some cases spread to the neck and face. Bone loss in the result is also possible.

An access hole is drilled to enable the dental staff to remove all the debris, pulp and nerve before cleaning the cavity and filling it. Antibiotic medication is placed inside before filling begins. After a week the temporary filling is replaced with a permanent one if no complications are observed.

  1. Why Costa Rica?

This rugged forested country is the best place to visit if you want to go bird watching since there are a lot of varieties of wild birds that you can only find in Costa Rica. Besides bird watching, international patients should visit the beaches that you can find anywhere in the country. The coastline of the country is on the Caribbean and Pacific.
