Root canal treatment may be required to save a tooth rather than removing it if the nerve becomes damaged or infected as a result of cracks or cavities. In Cancun, a specialist dentist called an endodontist will undertake your root canal treatment, just as they would in North America.
The length of time root canal treatment can take to complete is dependent on whether you have had an infection. If you have, it may take up to 2 weeks to finish the treatment, so there are not many better places on earth to kill time for a week or two than Cancun.
Known for its amazing beaches and both on and under water activities,Cancun is much more than a beach resort. It is smart, chic and cultured, reflected in the array of fine restaurants, boutique shopping and historical sites that are in and around the area.
Finding a specialist dentist anywhere is difficult enough but with Dental Departures finding your specialist dentist in Cancun is relatively straightforward. Our background checks ensure you can see all our dentists’ qualifications and specializations, as well as their memberships of professional organizations including the American Dental Association (ADA) or its equivalent in Mexico the Mexican Dental Association (ADM).
You can be certain that professional standards in Cancun are as high as you are used to with all aspects of your care and treatment, including sterilization methods and the use of up-to-date dental technologies.
Your root canal dental treatment in Cancun will be the same as it would be in the States, except for one thing – the price. Here you will find the cost is only around a third of the price it is at home, giving you plenty of change to enjoy a really great vacation.
A root canal alone, with no complications such as infection, can be completed in as little as one or two appointments. If you have an infection this will need to be cleared with antibiotics before treatment is started, which is usually 10 days after the antibiotics have been commenced. In this scenario you should be able to start a course of antibiotics at home before you travel to Cancun and then your root canal treatment can be started as soon as you arrive.
After the root canal treatment you will need to have the restoration (crown) fitted. Your dentist will make impressions of your teeth and send these to the lab to make the custom-fit crown. Once your dentist has received the crown, after a couple of days, you will go back to the clinic to have it fitted.
For a simple root canal with no infection, including post-core and crown it will take around a week to complete, but it may take around two if there has been an infection.
Root canal prices may vary on a number of factors – bigger teeth such as molars (back teeth) are more expensive than a front tooth. A root canal starts from around $1,280 in the US, $250 in Cancun. A crown would cost an additional $1,000 but only around $350 in Cancun.
Traveling to Cancun for your root canal treatment could save you around $1,500 – which is more than enough to enjoy a fantastic vacation in this stunning resort.
