Root Canal


Root canal treatment is the removal of the tooth's pulp, a small, thread-like tissue in the center of the tooth. Once the damaged, diseased or dead pulp is removed, the remaining space is cleaned, shaped and filled. This procedure seals off the root canal. Years ago, teeth with diseased or injured pulps were removed. Today, root canal treatment saves many teeth that would otherwise be lost.

 

The most common causes of pulp damage or death are cracked tooth, cavity, an injury to a tooth, such as a severe knock to the tooth, either recent or in the past. Once the pulp is infected or dead, pus can build up at the root tip in the jawbone, forming an abscess. When an abscess built up is present, it can destroy the bone surrounding the tooth and cause unbearable pain.

 

How is a Root Canal Done?

Root canal treatment consists of several steps that take place over several office visits, depending on the situation. First, an opening is made through the back of a front tooth or the crown of a molar or pre-molar. After the diseased pulp has been removed, the pulp chamber and root canals are cleaned, enlarged and shaped in preparation for being filled.

If more than one visit is needed, a temporary filling is placed in the crown opening to protect the tooth between dental visits. The temporary filling is removed and the pulp chamber and root canal permanently filled. A tapered, rubbery material called gutta-percha is inserted into each of the canals and is often sealed into place with cement. Sometimes a metal or plastic rod is placed in the canal for structural support.

 

In the final step, a crown is usually placed over the tooth to restore its natural shape and appearance. If the tooth is very broken down, a post visit may be required to build it up prior to placing a crown. Your treated and restored tooth/teeth can last a lifetime with proper care. Because tooth decay can still occur in treated teeth, good oral hygiene and regular dental exams are necessary to prevent further problems.

 

As there is no longer a pulp keeping the tooth alive, root treated teeth can become brittle and are more prone to fracture. This is an important consideration when deciding whether to crown or fill a tooth after root canal treatment. To determine the success or failure of root canal treatment, the most relied-upon method is to compare new X-rays with those taken prior to treatment. This comparison will show whether bone continues to be lost or is being regenerated.

European Dental Tourism Treatments Overseas

Dental tourism is a term that describes seeking dental treatment in another country. The necessity for travel may be the sole or primary motivation for the dental treatment sought. The internet and internet advertising may also be an important source for accessing and researching affordable dental treatment possibilities overseas. Affordable dental care can be a significant Center-3.jpgproblem for some in the US population and that is why more and more patients have been turning to dental treatment overseas as an option, instead of getting very expensive dental care at home.

The affordability factor is a significant issue as a procedure may be performed abroad at a much lower cost compared to the amount that a patient would pay in the US. This affordability has been made even more attractive recently, especially if you compare dental care prices to European countries like Hungary or Austria. Both countries have high standard of dental services. Improvements in the standard of care overseas may also play a role.

There are definite benefits for accessing dental care outside the US. The most important is the affordability, high completion of treatment plans, convenience of treatment, combination of treatment with some leisure activity or visiting family and avoidance of waiting lists.

Szechenyi thermal spa was the first thermal spa in Pest opened here as a temporary establishment in 1881. As it became more and more popular, construction began to expand the termal spa. The medicinal baths were built in 1913, and the northern wing, with a beautiful Neo-Baroque interior, was completed in 1927.

Today, there are 18 pools, of which 15 are spring fed. In one of the large outdoor pools. You can witness the surreal spectacle of people playing chess while immersed up to their chests in steaming water. As Szechenyi is one of the largest public thermal spas in Europe, it has more than one entrance.

The grandiose main entrance beneath the baroque dome (facing the City Park), leads to the indoor thermal baths, the side entrance leads to the sauna baths and the rear entrance (opposite the circus) leads to the outdoor pools. Although everything is interconnected and visitors have access to all areas once inside, it is recommended using the rear entrance, where the private changing cabins are located.
