Root Canal Treatment

Steps Involved in IVF:

Procedure Description:

A root canal treatment, commonly referred to simply as a "root canal", is a dental procedure designed to treat an infection or damage in the pulp (the innermost soft tissue) of a tooth. This often occurs when there's severe tooth decay, a cracked tooth, or perhaps an injury to the tooth that has allowed bacteria to penetrate the pulp. These infections can lead to severe toothaches, swelling, abscesses, and other oral complications if left untreated.

When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected or damaged, it can no longer repair itself. This means that the living tissue within the tooth can die, leading to further complications like abscesses and even loss of the tooth. A root canal treatment aims to remove this infected or damaged pulp, clean and disinfect the inner chamber of the tooth, and then fill it to seal off the space. This preserves the natural tooth structure and prevents the need for extraction.

Many people fear the thought of a root canal because they assume it's painful. However, with modern dental technology and anesthetics, most patients find that the procedure is no more uncomfortable than getting a filling. In fact, it's the pain caused by the infection or damage that's often more unbearable than the treatment itself.

Procedure Duration:

The duration of a root canal treatment typically depends on the complexity of the tooth structure and the extent of the infection or damage. On average, the procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes per session. It's worth noting that some root canals might require multiple sessions, especially if the infection is severe or if the tooth in question has multiple roots.

Following the procedure, most patients might experience some discomfort or mild pain, but this usually subsides within a few days. Over-the-counter pain relievers can alleviate these symptoms effectively in most cases. It's crucial to follow the dentist's aftercare instructions, including taking any prescribed medications and avoiding certain foods, to ensure a smooth recovery.

Recovery time is relatively quick. Most patients can resume their normal activities the day after the procedure. However, until the root canal-treated tooth is fully restored—usually with a crown—it's best to avoid biting down hard on that tooth.


  • Cost-Effective: Traveling abroad for a root canal can save patients a significant amount compared to prices in their home country. This includes both the procedure and associated travel expenses.
  • Highly Skilled Dentists: Many countries popular for medical tourism boast top-tier dental professionals trained at prestigious institutions.
  • Advanced Technology: Some destinations offer cutting-edge dental technology and facilities that might not be readily available everywhere.
  • Combining Leisure with Medical Needs: Many patients take advantage of their trip to explore a new country and enjoy a mini-vacation.

Potential Destinations:

  • Thailand: Bangkok and Chiang Mai are renowned for their advanced dental clinics and skilled practitioners.
  • Mexico: Cities near the U.S. border, like Tijuana and Los Algodones, are popular for American patients seeking affordable dental care.
  • India: Major cities such as Mumbai and Delhi have seen a rise in dental tourism due to the high standard of care at a fraction of the cost.
  • Hungary: Known as the dental capital of Europe, it attracts numerous European patients annually.

Risks & Considerations:

  • Quality of Care: Not all destinations guarantee the same standard of care. Thorough research is essential.
  • Post-Procedure Issues: Should complications arise after returning home, managing follow-ups with an overseas dentist can be challenging.
  • Travel and Recovery: Long flights after a dental procedure might be uncomfortable. Consider the logistics of your return journey.
  • Language Barrier: Ensure communication is clear and that you understand all aspects of your care.

How to Choose the Right Doctor and Hospital:

  • Accreditations: Check if the dental clinic or hospital is accredited by recognized international bodies.
  • Reviews & Testimonials: Previous patient feedback can provide insight into the quality of care.
  • Experience & Specialization: Ensure the dentist specializes in endodontics or root canal treatments and has considerable experience.
  • Transparent Pricing: Avoid hidden costs by ensuring the clinic offers transparent pricing for all aspects of the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

What actually happens during hyperstimulation of the ovaries?

The patient will take injectable FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) for eight to eleven days, depending on how long the follicles take to mature. This hormone is produced naturally in a woman’s body causing one egg to develop per cycle. Taking the injectable FSH causes several follicles to develop at once, at approximately the same rate. The development is monitored with vaginal ultrasounds and following the patient’s levels of estradiol and progesterone. FSH brand names include Repronex, Follistim, Menopur, Gonal-F and Bravelle. The patient injects herself daily.

What happens during egg retrieval?

When the follicles have developed enough to be harvested, the patient attends an appointment  where she is anesthetized and prepared for the procedure. Next, the doctor uses an ultrasound probe to guide a needle through the vaginal wall and into the follicle of the ovary. The thin needle draws the follicle fluid, which is then examined by an embryologist to find the eggs. The whole process takes about 20 minutes.

What happens to the eggs?

In the next step, the harvested eggs are then fertilized. If the sperm from the potential father, or in some cases, anonymous donor, has normal functionality, the eggs and sperm are placed together in a dish with a nutrient fluid, then incubated overnight to fertilize normally. If the sperm functionality is suboptimal, an embryologist uses Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection to inject a single sperm into a single egg with an extremely precise glass needle.  Once fertilization is complete, the embryos are assessed and prepared to be transferred to the patient’s uterus.

How are the embryos transferred back to the uterus?

The doctor and the patient will discuss the number of embryos to be transferred. The number of successfully fertilized eggs usually determines the number of eggs to be placed in the uterus. Embryos are transferred to the uterus with transabdominal ultrasound guidance. This process does not require anesthesia, but it can cause minor cervical or uterine discomfort. Following transfer, the patient is advised to take at least one days bed rest and two or three additional days of rest, then 10 to 12 days later, two pregnancy tests are scheduled to confirm success. Once two positive tests are completed, an obstetrical ultrasound is ordered to show the sac, fetal pole, yolk sac and fetal heart rate.


Built into this technology there is a microscope with a powerful camera that allows the uninterrupted monitoring of the embryo during its first hours of life. In this way, we can keep a close eye on the embryo, from the moment when the oocyte is inseminated and begins to divide into smaller and smaller cells, until it can be transferred to the uterus.
