Root Canal in Tunisia

The Ultimate Guide to Root Canal in Tunisia

Last fact-checked: 7 February 2020

Pay far less for a root canal in Tunisia at one of Dental Departures’ first-rate dental clinics. We’ve helped over a hundred thousand patients receive great quality dental care abroad—so trust us to find the best clinic for you.

Why Would I Need a Root Canal?

A root canal procedure is the only way to save a tooth if harmful bacteria reach the soft centre where nerves and connective tissue are housed. Bacteria are present in our mouths all the time. However, over time, harmful, acid-producing bacteria erode the tooth’s enamel, causing tooth cavities .

If the cavity is not treated by removing the decay and sealing it with a filling, the bacteria will continue to erode the tooth until the centre is breached. Once this soft centre becomes infected, there is no other way of preserving your tooth other than with a root canal procedure.

Is a Root Canal Painful? 

Root canal treatment isn’t painful, but you may experience discomfort or pain before the procedure as the infection may cause irritation to your tooth nerves, as well as the surrounding gum tissue. A root canal procedure is typically carried out under a local anaesthetic so you shouldn’t feel anything while in the chair (apart from the initial needle pricks). Afterward, you will need to wait for the numbness in your mouth to subside before you feel comfortable. In effect, it should feel just like a filling.

What Is the Procedure for a Root Canal? 

Before a root canal can be carried out, you will need to go on a course of antibiotics. The course will typically last for seven days, but the procedure cannot be carried out until the infection has been cleared. If you are worried about the amount of time you will need to spend in Tunisia, then you may want to go to a dentist at home for a course of antibiotics, and plan to see a dentist in Tunisia just before the course finishes.

The root can procedure starts with the administration of local anaesthetic. Once your mouth is numb, the dentist makes a hole in the top of the tooth to allow access to the pulp chamber. The dentist begins to remove the infected material in the pulp chamber, moving down each tooth root to clear the infected debris from there, before moving on to the root canals and getting rid of the infected material there, too. This may process may take several hours, depending on how many tooth roots and root canals your tooth has. It could be as much as three roots with three root canals; or as little as one root with one root canal.

Once all the debris has been removed, the inside of the tooth is cleaned and an antibiotic tablet placed inside the cavity. The tooth is sealed with a temporary filling. You will need to return to the dentist after several days to have the temporary filling removed and tooth inspected. If no sign of infection is present in the pulp chamber, the dentist will place a permanent filling.

In some cases, this will mark the end of your treatment. However, if your dentist has removed a large amount of decay from your tooth, it may need to be strengthened with a crown.

In this case, the dentist will take impressions of your mouth to send to an external laboratory that will make and send your new crown to your dentist a day or two later. Alternatively, if your dentist has CAD/CAM , you can be measured up and have your crown fitted on the same day, as the crown is manufactured onsite.
