Getting Root Canal in Mexico

What is Root Canal Therapy?

Endodontics is a minimally invasive and painless procedure to remove a damaged or infected dental pulp to save a tooth. At Advanced Cabo Dentistry, a root canal procedure takes an hour to complete, and it is always followed up by a restorative treatment like dental fillings or crowns.

Non-Surgical Root Canal

It is the most common endodontic procedure. Our endodontist performs root canals with local anesthesia and specialized equipment to restore your tooth.

Root Canal Retreatment

Our endodontist can perform a root canal retreatment if a previous root canal you got, failed. This is the same procedure as a non-surgical root canal.

Post & Core Build-Up

After root canal therapy, post and core build-up will be required if your tooth needs a dental crown. This treatment will be done by our endodontist and prosthodontist.


Also known as a surgical root canal, this treatment is performed when a root canal is not enough to remove the damaged pulp. Apicoectomy is painless microsurgery.

When is a Root Canal Needed?

You will need to have root canal therapy when you start filling a pain in your tooth that doesn’t go away. This is due to a dental pulp infection and inflammation that might be accompanied by other issues like deep decay due to cavities, hypersensitive teeth, bad mouth taste, and pain when chewing.

Endodontic Diagnosis for Root Canal Therapy

At Advanced Cabo Dentistry

Dr. Thomas Koty and an endodontist need to comprehensively evaluate your dental condition, especially to verify the vitality of your teeth. This process is done through cutting-edge technology to get an accurate diagnosis.

Dental Pulp Vitality Testing

To verify if a tooth is dead or alive, the root canal dentist will use a Waldent™ pulp tester. This procedure has minimum pain and takes a couple of minutes to complete.

Periapical X-Ray

To start your endodontic diagnosis, Dr, Koty and your endodontist will submit you to a periapical X-ray to determine if your tooth can be saved and see its overall condition.

Alternatives to teeth Whitening in Advanced Cabo

Dental Veneers

Veneers are the most sought-after cosmetic treatment at our clinic. It consists of thin porcelain, composite, or zirconia laminates that cover the front surface of a tooth to improve its aesthetics.

Dental Crowns

Sometimes, a smile makeover needs dental crowns. Crowns are a restorative treatment, done to save or replace damaged or missing teeth. This is the most effective dental treatment.


With traditional braces or invisalign® clear aligners, we can realign your teeth and solve biting problems. Braces are an excellent starting point for a full smile makeover treatment, to make your teeth look perfect.
