Come to Kata Beach for your root canal procedure – and make an unpleasant procedure much for palatable by combining it with a holiday. You can also save up to 90% - which will more than cover the cost of traveling here.
Infected tissue in the root of a tooth can lead to an abscess – and this is usually the first sign you will have of any problem. Root canal treatment removes the infected tissue and the root itself to prevent the loss of the tooth.
The procedure itself should be pain-free, feeling no worse than a filling.
The procedure is performed under a local anesthetic. A small opening is first made in the top of the tooth to gain access to the nerve in the tooth root. The infected pulp is removed and the canal cleared, cleansed and re-shaped. A temporary filling is usually put in place to ensure no sign of infection remains before the permanent filling or crown is fitted.
The procedure can usually be done in two weeks, but the number of visits you require to the dentist will depend on a number of factors, including whether you have an infection, the number of tooth canals, the complexity of your procedure, and whether you will need a crown restoration.
It is important to ensure you have your root canal done by a specialist in this procedure, called an endodontist. With Dental Departures you can see which of our clinics have an endodontist, so you are assured of getting an expert.
Dentists in Thailand undergo extensive training, just like dentists at home, with many also being members of other dental governing bodies overseas, as well as with the Thai authorities. Training is rigorous, and on a par with western training and so you need not worry that dentists in Kata Beach are inferior to our dentists at home.
In fact, many of our patients will say just the opposite. Thai dentists have been treating overseas patients for many years now – they are the world leaders in dental tourism. They have this reputation because they deserve it – and provide exceptional quality services in modern clinics. Thai clinics are equipped with dental equipment that is state-of-the-art, which may make your dentist’s office at home look outdated.
Dental tourism here creates healthy competition among the clinics for patients. This is good news for patients as clinics are constantly improving their services and skills, while ensuring their prices remain highly competitive.
Kata Beach is one of the most attractive on Phuket. Shimmering white sands, a crystal ocean and swaying palm trees offer an idyllic spot to recuperate after dental care - and with plenty of activities, restaurants and bars around you will not be short of things to enjoy in between your visits to the dentist.
