Root Canal Treatment in Thailand
Root Canal Treatment in Thailand

In dental practice, Root Canal Treatment concerns the identification, therapy and prevention of dental pulp conditions. Because of this area of expertise, teeth can be saved, and those which are problematic no longer need to be removed right away.

If you are planning on coming to Thailand and want the best dentists for your root canal treatment, we at MedAsia Healthcare Complex located in Sukhumvit, Bangkok, offer you professional root canal treatment. In terms of quality, the facilities and dentists or staffs are on par with the highest international standards of healthcare anywhere in the world.

Dental pulp is comprised of blood vessels, connective tissue and nerves – all of which play a big role in the development of teeth. Each tooth usually has miniscule holes, and they can become infected, especially in a person with poor dental hygiene. Inflammation and pain are the usual telltale signs that you have an infected tooth pulp. Some people might not experience pain, but a diseased pulp can product derivatives that can cause bone injury.

An endodontist is a special type of dentist who performs Root Canal Treatments, and at MedAsia Healthcare Complex, we have some of the best endodontists.

The endodontist removes the infected root, and then shapes the tooth after cleaning it. After filling the tooth, the dentist will reseal it to prevent contaminants from infecting your incisor. This way he can save your tooth and eliminate the need for dental extraction. Root Canal Treatment usually spans one to three clinic appointments.

How Root Canal Treatment is done
  1. The endodontist will perform a dental examination and take several X-rays prior to the procedure. Afterwards, he will apply anesthetic around the affected area. He will also place a dental dam to separate the tooth, and to make sure saliva is diverted away from the area where he is going to perform the treatment. He will then use a dental drill to gain access to the pulp, either at the side or the rear part of the tooth. Antiseptic will be used to clean the pulp, and special dental instruments will be employed to create a space for the treatment filling.
  2. After the root canal is cleansed and molded, a biocompatible substance also known as gutta-percha will be used to fill the canal, making sure that all holes are filled. This flexible substance is made of plastic. A temporary filling will be put near the root opening. It will be removed by the endodontist prior to restoring your diseased tooth.
  3. Once the procedure is finished, you need to set a repeat appointment with your endodontist so he can start the tooth restoration. If there are no signs of crown infection, the specialist will fill the canal with a permanent substance.
Frequently asked questions

Will I feel pain after Root Canal Treatment?

Some discomfort is expected after Root Canal Treatment. Should you feel any soreness, remember to keep your head elevated at all times. Avoid vigorous activity as well in the meantime.

Take ibuprofen to relieve the pain associated with Root Canal Treatment. Remember to follow the directions given by the dentist. If pain does not subside after taking ibuprofen, contact your endodontist right away.

Are there any dietary habits I need to change after the treatment?

Immediately after Root Canal Treatment, you should remember to temporarily remove hot or hard foods from your diet. Because sensation is temporarily lost due to the effects of anesthesia, you might not feel the heat in your mouth and that may lead to burns.

A few days after the treatment, consume soups, eggs and milk shakes. Munch on foods thatdo not require you to chew frequently.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment
  • It prevents the harmful effects that follow a tooth infection.
  • You don’t need to have your tooth pulled out even after it has become infected.
Drawbacks of Root Canal Treatment
  • On some occasions, treatment results in the pushing of infected flesh to the root ends, thereby affecting the gum. Although this can be treated right away, you will experience a little pain until the gum infection is fully cured.
  • Since canals are asymmetrical in shape, proper cleaning and filling will not be done if the measurementsare not accurate. Wrong measurements can result in infection recurrence. If this happens, you will need to undergo another round of Root Canal Treatment.
