A Root Canal in Thailand is a dental procedure to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases or injuries to the centre of your tooth. With the help of a Thailand root canal treatment your dentist will attempt to save your tooth by removing the bacteria from the root canal system.

The most common  cause of nerve death is extensive decay, deep fillings, trauma (such as falling  over or a hard bang to your tooth), a  cracks in your tooth or diseased gum.

Signs of symptoms for possible root canal therapy:

  • An abscess (or pimple) on the gums.
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold.
  • Severe toothache pain.
  • Sometimes no symptoms are present however an xray may indicate there is an issue - eveb when you are not expereincing any pain.
    With an X-ray your dentists may be able to pick up disease of the tisssue around your tooth..
  • Swelling and/or tenderness.

Root Canal Treatment in Thailand

We arrange many, many Root Canal Surgerys in both Phuket and Bangkok and can assist you in these locations.

A Thailand root canal procedure requires one or more appointments.

An access opening is made on top of the tooth and a series of root canal files are placed into the opening, one at a time, removing the pulp, nerve tissue, and bacteria.  If tooth decay is present, it will also be removed with special dental instruments.

Once the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, it will be sealed with a permanent filling.

Approximately a week later the roots and the inside cavity of the tooth will be filled and sealed with special dental materials (Endocal). 

A filling will be placed to cover the opening on top of the tooth. In addition, all teeth that have root canal treatment should have a crown (cap) placed.  This will protect the tooth and prevent it from breaking, and restore it to its full function.

Root canal surgery is safe and it is the correct approach to saving teeth that wihtout treatment will be lost.

What is the success rate of Thailand root canal therapy?

Properly done root canal treatments are about 95% successful - (at home or in Thailand). Failures do sometimes occur.Those people willing to have re-treatment usually experience a 85% success.

What are the alternatives to root canal treatment?

The simple answer is there is not alternative treatments if you want to save your teeth. Whilst some patients suggest extraction this is in fact not a fesible option as an extraction  very frequently cause your teeth to shift and crowd. An Extraction will end up costing you more in the long run.

Thailand Dental Crowns are thicker than dental veneers. In order to use a crown your dentist will reduce the tooth size and shape it to a tapered nub. The dentist's aim is that when your crown is cemented on it becomes the new outer surface of your existing tooth and looks completely natural.

In doing this procedure the dentist can also select the colour of the crown ie: to match existing teeth. Crowns are very strong and durable. They are used when you need to create a significant shape change for a tooth and also when it is necessary to construct broken teeth and also teeth that need to be strengthened or teeth require strengthening because of decay.

They make an excellent choice in areas of your teeth where there is heavy chewing or biting forces and are often used for patients that grind teeth (bruxism) and clench teeth.

covering your tooth to restore itsA Crown - as you can see from the above image, encases your entire tooth.

Once a crown is used on your tooth you will always require one. Prior to Crown Treatment Gingivoplasty is often recommended prior to multiple crown procedure, for the upper front teeth, to make the gums even. Gingivoplasty for multiple crowns and bridges takes at least 3 weeks to complete. ie: prior to coming to Thailand for crowns it if often advisable to have gum work completed.

If you provide us with dental images we will be able to speak to your surgeon and ascertain if you require Gum Treatment .

Veneers

Veneering your tooth means to cover up the front surface / the dental face. A good analogy is to compare it to placing on acrylic fingernails except veneers are permanent.

Dental Veneers are used to enhance shapes, enhance the colours of your teeth as well as to closing the spaces between teeth. Veneers are also excellent solution of broken teeth or teeth that have bee chipped and also to cover up awfully stained teeth. Using venners may mean that we can improve the alignment of your teeth so as to give you an ‘even’ smile.

A veneers is a more conservative treatment compared to a crown as a veneer requires minimal reduction of the tooth size.

TYPES OF VENEERS

There are two types of veneers: Porcelain and Composite

A Composite veneer is a quicker and cheaper but not as long lasting.

Composite Veneer Procedure

An advantage with Composite veneers is that they only require one visit and additionally there is minimal or no tooth reduction. Another great advantage is that normally you do not require an anaesthetic. Composite veneers allow for re bonding if so required later.

Porcelain veneers resist staining, reflects light and are among the strongest and most natural looking restorations available.

In some cases porcelain veneer placement may be reversible. In most cases, however, once a veneer has been applied, the tooth will always require a covering ie: a veneer or else the tooth could be provided with a crown later.

Porcelain Veneer Procedure

This is a two appointment procedure which requires some minor irreversible tooth preparation. It does howeverproduce the strongest, most trouble-free, most esthetic and long-lasting conservative restoration.

First Appointment(VENEER PREPARATION PROCEDURE)

  • Shade Selection - You will select a tentative shade. Most patients want their teeth to be light. Many veneers are made with B1 porcelain since it is easier to darken the veneers when bonding than it is to lighten them. The B1 porcelains can block out the darkest stains.
  • Tooth preparation - For normally aligned teeth you will only require moderate colour changes. If there are misaligned teeth they can be recontoured and brought into better alignment through the preparation.
  • Impression - Are made using a polysiloxane or polyether material.

Temporary Veneers - A great majority of patients do not require temporaries. If they are necessary or desired, they are hand sculptured, using composite and attached by spot etching the enamel in the center of the tooth away from any margins.

Second Appointment (VENEER CEMENTATION PROCEDURE)

  • Remove temporary - The temporaries are removed if they had been previously placed (not usually needed).
  • Evaluate fit and esthetics.-All veneers will be placed without bonding medium in order to assess the fit( glycerin is used to hold in place on a temporary basis).
    Single veneers sometimes require shade modification with tints and modifiers or shaded cements.
  • Preparing the restoration for cementation - Your teeth will be cleaned prior to adhesion of the veneers.
  • Light cure veneer from the facial surface for at least 60 seconds. You cannot overcure these restorations.
  • Finishing and polishing procedures.

Meeting Your Expectations

During your veneers consultation, you will actively participate in the "smile design process." By sharing your preferences for the shape, length, width and colour of the veneers and the change in the appearance of your smile that you want them to create, you help ensure that your veneer treatment will meet your expectations.

Veneers
before and after implants

The loss of teeth is a very dramatic event. It can lead to a reduction in the quality of your life – disappearance of a smile or will stop you enjoying a tasty meal.
Dental Implants simply improve the quality of your life – without damaging adjacent teeth.

Dental implants in Thailand are an alternative to dental dentures or bridgework for replacing teeth.

A dental implant is made from titanium and is surgically implanted in your jaw bone so as to act like the root of your missing tooth.

Usually, there is less discomfort or post-operative pain.

Tooth Replacement

implant cap

Unlike dental bridges and dentures, dental implants more closely mimic natural teeth in appearance, feel and function.

Unlike, for example, a conventional three-unit dental bridge used to replace a single tooth, the healthy adjacent teeth do not have to be modified to support the bridge.

An Implant is placed in bone and covered with a protective cap whilst healing.Depending on the amount of bone, your dentist may need to complete an additional procedure to build up the bone.


One Visit Dental Implants

I'm afraid we don’t recommend 1 visit implants (immediate loading) because of the poor prognosis (poor success rate). This is the case whether the implant procedure is done in Thailand, Australia or anywhere in the world.

We always practice at least 2 visit implants with a 4 months interval between initial visit and final visit. Allowing time between visits so that the implant and the bone will adapt properly and that it can withstand pressure during function.

For some patients a return visit to Thailand for the balance of their surgery may not be practical. It is therefore not uncommon for patients to have the initial work completed in Thailand and the balance of the implant work concluded at home – 4 months later. At least this way you are still have a singnifcant cost saving on most of the work.
