What is a Root Canal
A root canal consists in the extraction of the tooth pulp, which is a small tissue located in the center of the tooth.
Once the damaged pulp is removed; the remaining space is cleaned, reshaped and filled. This seals the root canal procedure. Years ago, teeth with diseased or injured pulps had no other option but to be extracted.
Teeth that are restored by this procedure can last for several years if they are properly cared.
Since treated teeth don’t have natural structure that has kept them alive and hidrited since they first came out, they become much more fragile and prone to fracture.
This is always important to take into consideration when making the decision to place a tooth crown instead of a regular filling after root canal treatment in Tijuana.

Root Canal Procedure
Depending on the situation the treatment consists of several steps to be performed during one or more appointments to the dentist. These steps are:
- First, a cavity access must be created, depending if the treated tooth is a molar, pre-molar, anterior or previously restored with a crown this access in most cases is towards the back or on the occlusal surface area.
- Then the diseased pulp is removed; using several instruments and equipment such as an endodontic microscope the root canal is cleaned and shaped before we proceed to fill.
- For treatments that require more than one visit due infection, the cavity access will be restored with a temporary filling or crown, this to protect the tooth until the next visit nomally programed a week after.
- On the next visit, temporary material is removed and we proceed to fill permanently with a material that prevents bacteria from re-entering the root canals. This step involves inserting a material called gutta-percha in each of the canals and seal them in place with cement.
- The last step of this procedure is to place a dental crown over the tooth to restore its shape and natural appearance.

What Patients Say
Had a great experience. Went in to have 3rd molars extracted. Had them both out in about 10 minutes! Felt very comfortable there. They have underground parking, so you don’t have to leave your car on the street. The price was great (compared to U.S. costs). They were very professional. I’ll be back soon for the other side!
Again I have to say the best place for dental work. Amazing staff, dentists, and assistants. I’m a huge chicken when it come to dental work. Not once did I feel uneasy or even pain. I had 8 lower teeth pulled. Go back in November for implants.
