At only a few hours flight away from major North American cities Mexico City is convenient to visit. Good year-round weather and an array of cultural attractions make it an exciting destination for either a city break or a longer vacation.

The city provides generous opportunities for downtime and relaxation, with all modern conveniences including shopping malls, restaurants, galleries, museums and parks on the doorstep.
Medical and dental tourism is important in Mexico City with many health care providers ensuring they are accredited with the same professional organizations that their counterparts north of the border are.
This growing trend ensures that standards are high as patients will naturally be attracted to clinics and dentists who are reputable and have a good track record with verifiable credentials.
Modern dental clinics in Mexico not only offer well-qualified and expert dentists, but many clinics are state-of-the-art, using the latest dental treatments, diagnostics and technologies as well as the top-grade materials and brands used in dental offices in North America.
Something that is offered as standard by all Dental Departures clinics that is not offered as a matter of course north of the border is a guarantee or warranty - not only on the materials used by your dentist in Mexico City, but also on the actual procedure.
A root canal may be carried out in only one or two appointments – if there is no infection or other complication. However, if there is an infection it will need to be cleared up with a course of antibiotics for the root canal treatment can start. For patients traveling from abroad this will mean getting the course of antibiotics from your dentist at home to commence at least 10 days before you arrive in Mexico City if you want your treatment to start immediately.
The actual treatment will start with x-rays so your dentist can see where the infected root pulp is located. After this, the area will be numbed with local anesthetic and a rubber dam placed around the tooth to keep the area clean and free from debris. The dentist will then drill a hole to access the infected pulp and remove it. The empty chamber will be cleaned, sterilized and filled. If the tooth is large you will probably need a crown so a temporary filling will be used until the restoration (crown) is fitted. This will take a few extra days for the lab to custom-make your crown, after which time you will return to your dentist to have the crown permanently cemented in place.
A root canal following an infection could take up to two weeks, including post-core and crown.
Root canal treatments in the United States start from $1,280, and are around $400 in Mexico City. However, even greater savings are made if you require a post/core build-up and crown, with US prices coming in at around $2,200 and Mexico City prices around $1,000.
