Why should you travel to San Jose?

San Jose, meaning “Saint Joseph” is the capital and also the largest city in Costa Rica. The city is located in the western province of Costa Rica and is currently the seat of their national government. Aside from this, dental tourism at San Jose is at its peak. The reason: low cost on dental care services and its accessibility to international patients. Some insurance companies do not cover the costs of the treatment or it is very expensive in their respective home countries. It is very hard to enjoy your vacation if you have a budget to worry about but in San Jose, you can enjoy your vacation without the slightest worry on your budget.

What is a root canal?

As tooth decay worsens, your root canal will most often get damaged or even get infected. This is very painful because there are nerves on the soft tissue inside the root canal and once infected, it may create an abscess and very uncomfortable swelling. Dentists would then perform a root canal treatment in order to save the tooth.


How is a root canal treatment performed?

The process can take up to 2 weeks from the beginning until the end of the treatment. Patients should be given antibiotics before the procedure is performed, if not it might take longer. The first visit is for assessment and the procedure and the second visit is for the final checkup.
