Root Canal in Pattaya

The Ultimate Guide to Root Canal in Pattaya

Find a quality-checked dentist with Dental Departures for your root canals in Pattaya. We can save you around 85% on the equivalent costs at home - more than enough to pay for a holiday here.

Root canal treatment, also called endodontics, is a procedure used to treat infection at the center of a tooth. It is a specialist procedure and can be expensive but is necessary to save a tooth. In Pattaya root canal treatments are considerably less costly than in Australia and New Zealand and many patients are seeing the benefits of attending to their root canal treatment while here on holiday.

The procedure for a root canal may take up to two weeks to complete so being able to enjoy some quality relaxation time in between visits to the dentist may be just the thing to take your mind off it.

Pattaya provides a host of activities for holiday-makers, as well as low-key islands with secluded beaches if you really want to get away from it all – perfect for relaxing and recuperating after your dental treatment.

Why have Root Canals in Pattaya?

A properly done root canal will save a tooth that might otherwise have to be extracted. We work closely with dentists in Pattaya who are trained in endodontics and can undertake this specialised treatment.

Our dentists are quality-checked to ensure their qualifications and experience are as they should be so you can be confident in receiving the appropriate care.

Standards of dental care in Thailand are generally very high and they are seen as world leaders in dental tourism. In-line with this many clinics make sure they are providing first-class services so that they can attract patients in this growing area.

Root canal treatments are costly in many Western countries, but are considerably less in Pattaya, even taking into account flights and accommodation costs for a 2 week stay. 

How long do Root Canals take in Pattaya?

Root canal treatment can usually be completed over one or two appointments unless you have an infection which will need clearing up before the treatment can start. If this is the case we recommend patients obtain a course of antibiotics from their dentist at home before traveling to their dentist in Pattaya so that treatment can begin when they arrive. Antibiotics need to commence 10 days prior to the start of any root canal treatment.

When you attend your first appointment in Pattaya your dentist will need to get a clear picture of your root canals and will take x-rays. After the x-rays have been examined the procedure can begin. Your mouth will be prepared by placing a rubber dam over the infected tooth to prevent bacteria and water from entering the tooth. The area will be numbed with a local anesthetic. The soft tissue in the tooth will be accessed by drilling down through the crown of the tooth and removed. The cavity and root canal will be cleaned thoroughly and packed with a temporary filling. This is to ensure that there is no infection and the dentist will re-assess the situation several days later. If all is clear the tooth will be filled with a permanent filling and the procedure is complete.

If the tooth is large, or a lot of decay has been removed you may need to have a crown fitted. Your dentist can discuss the options with you. With new CAD/CAM technologies available to most clinics these days, crowns can be created and fitted within a couple of days.

What is the cost of root canal in Australia and New Zealand compared to Pattaya?

A straightforward root canal is around AUD $1,200 in Australia, but is around a tenth of the price in Pattaya starting from only AUD $129.

For more complicated root canals the savings are considerably more - and worth the trip to Pattaya rather than losing your tooth.
