Root Canal in Mexico

If you have a cracked tooth, a deep cavity, or issues from a previous filling, then a root canal treatment may be required. 

This dental treatment involves removing the infected pulp and nerve in the root of the tooth, then cleaning and shaping the inside of the root canal, then filling and sealing the remaining space.

With over 5,000 root canals performed for over 20 years with a Board Certified Endodontist expert that can complete a root canal dental treatment in less than 1 hour.

What Are The Benefits?

When tooth decay progress to the pulp tissue, the pain increases due to inflammation of the nerves and blood vessels supporting your pulp tissue, making the root canal treatment necessary to disinfect the pulp and limit bacterial progression.

Tooth Decay

Tooth decay or dental caries is one of the main sources of pulp irritation and infection. When bacteria stick to your teeth, they begin to invade the tooth structures including enamel (the outer protective layer of the tooth), dentin, then pulp.

Periodontal diseases

Tartar and plaques are sources of infection that can lead to pulp inflammation even if the tooth is sound with no decay, this occurs through lateral or accessory canals present in the teeth root that might deliver bacteria directly into the root canal


Trauma is another cause that can lead to the sudden death of pulp tissue, trauma occurs as a result of fights, sports injuries, or car accidents. The patient might not feel any signs of pain after the trauma as the pulp becomes necrotic or dead.

Pain Relief

Pain, discomfort, and headache are the most common annoying symptoms for the patient as they decrease his quality of life. The dentist removes the inflamed pulp during the first visit, making the patient feel more comfortable and relieved

Cracked or fractured teeth

Cracks or fractures occur as a result of some habits like clenching, bruxism (grinding teeth) or sudden biting on hard foods. They could be a potential portal of entry for bacteria, invading tooth structures, which can lead to pulp infection or inflammation.

Affected Root Canal

If you feel pain in your tooth while you’re drinking or eating something hot or cold you might need a root canal. The sensitivity can manifest itself as a sharp pain or a dull ache, and if you can feel it for a longer period of time, even after you finish drinking or eating.

Possibility for bone resorption

If the tooth with inflamed pulp is not treated, the bacteria invade the bone surrounding the tooth, decreasing the quality and density of bone

Abscess around the affected tooth

Once the pulp is dead and necrotic, a swelling filled with pus might be formed around the root of the affected teeth. Abscesses might lead to severe complications, especially for patients with suppressed immunity like diabetics.

Tooth mobility

The bacteria then spread into the periodontium attaching the tooth to the surrounding bone, which can lead to loss of attachment, and the tooth becomes mobile and liable for loss

Complete Tooth Loss

Leaving your root canal intread could result on the complete loss of your natural tooth due to severe infection.

High risk of plaques

The patient might also develop a perio-endo lesion due to the bacterial invasion through the lateral canals of teeth, making the patient more liable for a further breakdown of the periodontium, multiple teeth loss, and poor oral hygiene.

Increased Cost

Cost will increase should a root canal is not longer an option adn the tooth needs to be extracted and a dental implant placed. Cost will increas by at least 200%.

Two months later after extensive research, I choose him over several other great dentists because he was the only...

With too many dentists to choose from in Mexico, I knew I wanted to get the best possible dentist for my treatment. Since I was already saving over 80% of the cost compared to what dentists charge in the USA, I spend a great deal of time and effort contacting several dentists. Some were great, other lacked experience, but when...

Root Canal Applicable
On Multiple Teeth?

The simple answer is yes, Root Canal treatment can help you save the remaining teeth, these teeth are beneficial for the following functions.

Foundation for overdentures

The remaining teeth could be used to support an overdenture, they are prepared to carry the overdenture, giving a more stable prosthesis

Maintain the quality of bone

The presence of natural teeth delivers the chewing forces to the surrounding bone, which makes the bone still not resorbed, it preserves the bone quality and density for so long, giving the patient a better chance for doing dental implants in the future.

Our innovative 3 On 8 dental treatment provides three zirconium bridges in each jaw; a six-unit single anterior bridge carried by four dental implants from canine to canine, a four-unit single posterior bridge carried by two implants on the right side, a four-unit single posterior bridge carried by two implants on the left side.

Process of theRoot Canal

Taking the medical & dental history enables the dentist to assess your medical condition if have any chronic conditions, the drugs you might be allergic to, the previous dental treatments, and how successful they were.


Digital X-rays are taken to evaluate the affected tooth and the progression of the disease

Clinical Examination

Before proceeding to the Root Canal Treatment, the dentist can do some tests like the vitality test and others to make sure of which tooth is the main source of infection to be treated.

Under profound anesthesia, the dentist tries to get access to the pulp by drilling the affected tooth, this process is done to remove all the inflamed and infected pulp which is the source of pain & infection

Disinfection of the infected pulp

After complete removal of the inflamed tissue, the dentist prepares the root canal space to receive the disinfectants, the root canal is well cleaned and disinfected to be ready for filling

Filling the root canal space

The root canal space is then filled with gutta-percha to prevent any bacterial invasion into the space

Post Placement

In some cases, the dentist could place a fiber post in the root canal space to provide sufficient strength and durability for the treated tooth

Final Restoration

It’s considered the final step after Root Canal treatment, the dentist restores the crown part with a composite resin filling, getting the natural esthetics and function back again!

Implant Failure

There is a risk that 3 on 8 dental implants can fail. This happens in about 1 percent of patients. It occurs when the implants do not fuse with the bone, primarily due to patients not waiting the required healing time, poor hygiene, or drinking alcohol.  Most of the time, this can be resolved with a new implant.

Reducing this risk is hard to do since the dentist, and researchers don’t always know why one implant fails, and others do not.  However, if the patient follows all care instructions before and after the dental implant procedure, it’s less likely to occur. This means maintaining good oral hygiene, eating soft foods, and avoiding smoking.

The Risk of Infection

Any type of surgery carries a risk of infection. Good dentists do everything necessary to minimize this risk. However, infections do occur for various reasons. One of the most common results is the existence of peri-implantitis, a type of infection.

Knowing the signs, like the following, is a good way to get the help you need:

  • The dental implants are loose or wobbly
  • Bad breath
  • A bad taste in the mouth
  • Gums that are puffy, red, and inflamed around the dental implants
  • Pus exists in the gums
  • Fever
  • Excessive bleeding while brushing
