Do I Need a Root Canal Treatment?

Most people typically show some symptoms that may indicate that a root canal is required. A tingling sensation in the gum quickly develops into a small swelling which may be painful. Sometimes pus will be released from the swelling.

However, some people are asymptomatic (show no symptoms) and the problem may only be evident if your dentist takes a routine x-ray.

A root canal is required when the pulp chamber in the centre of your tooth (which contains soft tissue, such as nerves), becomes infected. This is because bacteria has entered the pulp chamber, typically through a decayed tooth.

What Happens If I Don’t Have Root Canal Treatment?

 

Initially, your dentist will usually prescribe antibiotics to try and clear up the acute infection. In some cases, the infection can spread to other teeth and other parts of your body, including the brain, so it is prudent to get it dealt with as soon as you can.

Once the infection has been cleared, the root canal procedure can be carried out. If you don’t have the procedure carried out then the only other option is to remove the tooth as the tooth is likely to get recurrent infections.

Left untreated, an infected tooth will continue to fester, causing great pain and eventually harm.

Is a Root Canal Treatment Suitable for Dental Tourists?

While most dental treatments are suitable for dental tourists, a root canal treatment does require several steps to complete the procedure, so you should bear in mind that you may have to be in Budapest for at least a few days. However, you will probably only need to stay for up to two weeks if you did not start a course of antibiotics to clear the infection before you arrived in Budapest.

Contrary to common belief, root canal treatment is often not painful, either before or after your procedure. In fact, it is no worse than a filling, although procedure takes longer, depending on how many roots our tooth has, and how many root canals in each root. Some teeth have only one root canal, whereas others may have six.

What Happens During the Root Canal Procedure?

An x-ray will be taken at your first consultation so the dentist can check for any signs of infection, and also to determine the number of tooth roots. A rubber dam is placed over the tooth to be treated to keep the area dry while the dentist works on it, and local anaesthetic is injected into the gum around the tooth.

A hole is then drilled into the top of the tooth so that the dentist can access the pulp chamber. Carefully, the infected matter is removed from the pulp chamber, and then along each root canal. Once complete, the dentist thoroughly cleans the root canals, and pulp chamber, and may insert antibiotic medication. The tooth is sealed with a temporary filling. This is a precautionary measure to ensure no infection remains, as a temporary filling is easier to replace than a permanent one.

You will be asked to return to the dentist after a few days. If you are infection-free, the dentist removes the temporary filling, replacing it with a permanent one, and the procedure is complete.

However, if your tooth was badly decayed and required a large filling, you may need a crown to provide strength to the tooth. This may require taking impressions of your mouth, which can be sent to the lab where your crown is made. Once the crown has been received by your dentist, you can return to have it permanently cemented in.

Alternatively, if your dentist has CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture) technology, your dentist may be able to measure and fit your crown in the same day. 3D images of your mouth are taken and fed into the computer and the dentist can design your crown on the screen. Once you are both happy with it, the information is sent to an onsite laboratory where your crown will be milled while you wait.

Will the Quality of a Root Canal in Budapest Be as Good as Home?

 

Dental care in Hungary is exceptionally good. The country has long been a medical and dental tourism destination and dentists in Hungary are accustomed to welcoming international patients. Dental training in Hungary is thorough and the clinics are contemporary with all the latest diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, including 3D/CT scanning and panoramic x-rays, to ensure patients receive accurate diagnoses and treatments.

However, you should always choose your dentist with care, whether at home or abroad. Obviously, we understand how difficult it is to assess whether a dental clinic is reliable in another country, which is where Dental Departures comes in. The clinics featured in Dental Departures’ listings have all been verified by us, ensuring they meet the required standards and benchmarks. Our background checks include criminal/legal records, onsite visits, confirming dentist qualifications and verifying professional organizations. Our listings also include patient reviews, maps, prices and much more, so you can choose with confidence.

What’s Happening in and around Budapest?

Budapest is one of the world’s greatest cities, with more than enough to see and do while you are in town attending to your root canal treatment. As well as historical architecture and a wealth of neighbourhoods and districts ripe for exploring, you will quickly discover a lively bar scene and unique attractions, such as the Sandwich of Death (it isn’t something you can eat!) and the House of Terror (which isn’t a fairground ride!).

And of course, there are Budapest’s famous thermal spas, both indoor and outdoor, dotted all over the city; you may even fancy one of the bath parties with disco lights and music.
