Why not? Dental care in the U.S. and Canada is too expensive. Another reason is that there are more or less one third of Americans does not have a dental insurance and that is a sad scenario. The difference in the cost of dental care in the U.S. as compared to Mexico is at least 70 to 75%!

Here are some examples:

The dental implants in the U.S. is $4,000.00

Price in Canada is $5,000.00

Compared to Mexico: $ 1,300.00/CAD $1,700.00

Root Canal in the U.S.: $1,300.00

Price in Canada: acad$1700.00

Compared to Mexico: $250.00/CAD $320.00

  • They have cheaper operating costs.
  • Lower standard of living.

Tips in Treating Dental Abscess

Dental abscess is an abscess at the base of a tooth. It is actually a pocket of pus, and it is possible that a bacterial infection could have caused this. The infection developed at the top of a tooth root. Thus, it should be given the proper attention because if not, it could seem like a bump on the gum close to the tooth.

Take note that this a serious state that could reach the face. This results to facial swelling which is also known as facial cellulitis. Do not take this lightly because once swelling starts it outspread rapidly.

A cavity in the tooth or a crack can start a dental abscess. The excruciating pain can worsen by drinking cold or hot drinks or masticating hard food. The difficult part is when it extend from your tooth to the ear or jaw on the same side as where the abscess is.

House care:

  • Do not eat or take hot or cold drinks and foods. If your teeth are sensitive then these change in temperature may make the pain worst. It would be good if you do not chew at the side where the abscess is.
  • In case of a cracked tooth or a big open cavity, you can apply oil of cloves to the tooth to ease the pain. It is available at your nearest drugstores. A few pharmacies have this “toothache kit” to use for first aid. It has paste for sensitive teeth and you could apply it to the open tooth.
  • To lessen the pain, put a cold pack on the affected area.
  • You can take medication you get from the counter but be cautious if you have kidney, chronic liver disease, GI bleeding or a stomach ulcer in the past before using a medicine that has ibuprofen or acetaminophen.
  • Antibiotic will be prescribed to you and follow the dentist’s direction. Do not skip any doses.

Follow-up care:

Do not skip on a follow up visit to your dentist or oral surgeon as was advised to you. Serious cases of facial cellulitis must be examined in 24 hours. Remember that  infection can continue to be a major concern until the infection has been discharged.
