Americans Would Rather Travel Than Pay High Costs

Affordable, quality care apparently trumps the commitment to travel. Approximately 50 million uninsured Americans are choosing medical tourism rather than pay for medical care in the US.

Root Canal

Root canal is a tooth-saving procedure for your decayed or infected tooth. In the process, nerve and pulp of the tooth are removed, and the tooth is sealed to prevent abscess.

This procedure is done by first applying an anesthetic cream over the gum followed by a local anesthetic injection. This numbs the surrounding area of the tooth making the procedure relatively pain-free. Nitrous oxide gas may also be used in some instances to reduce pain and to relax.

After the procedure, you may experience tooth sensitivity and pain for a day or two. This is taken care of by the medicines prescribed by your dentist.
