What is a root canal procedure?

Root canal procedures, or endodontics, is a treatment for the inner pulp of the tooth. They are performed to save teeth from extraction. The dentist or endodontist, a root canal specialist, cleans out the decayed or damaged pulp without breaking the exterior of the tooth root. The cleaned root canal is filled with a bio-compatible rubber-like material called gutta-percha. They are also performed for patients with damaged teeth caused by accidents or fractures. The procedure takes one to two hours to complete.

What are the types of root canal procedures?

Primary root canal treatments are performed using stainless steel files. Stainless steel files could remove only a small amount of infection and could easily break. The more advanced and flexible nickel titanium files do not break easily and are able to clean the entire infected area easily. Rotary instruments used to clean the root canal are quicker than manual instruments. Other advanced root canal procedures make use of ultrasound or laser to effectively clean the root canal.

Is a root canal procedure painful?

Root canal procedures are performed under local anaesthetic. Patients will not feel pain during the procedure.

What is the recovery time after having a root canal procedures?

Patients take about three days to recover after a root canal procedure. Some patients require a week to recover from a root canal procedure.

When can I travel by air after a root canal procedure?

It is safe to travel by air one day after a root canal procedure. Patients should check with their dentist before embarking on their journey. If they feel pain or discomfort, they should postpone their journey until it abates.

What care is required after a root canal procedure?

Patients should take all prescribed medications correctly. They should not eat until the anaesthetic wears off. They should not eat or drink very hot or very cold food for at least a week. They should avoid eating hard food or sticky food. If swelling occurs they should sleep with their head raised for a few days to bring it down.

What are the alternatives to root canal procedures?

Alternatives to root canal procedures include extractions and pulp capping procedures.

Really looks so naturalMaria, Australia, 04 01 16

I had veneers that really look so natural. So happy with the result! More than what I expected. And the cost is very minimal for the above average service of the dentist and the whole staff. Everyone is friendly and accommodating. The clinic is maintained well. I like how they organized everything in the premise. Very clean, neat and modern. The equipment and other materials are obviously sterilized. Thumbs up to the cleanliness and great appointment!

Following Fillings, Teeth Cleaning and Fluoride Therapy I would definitely recommend this clinicHelen, Australia, 06 09 16

I had two urgent fillings and then booked in the following week for a new patient package, which included an x-ray, clean and fluoride treatment. I now have a plan for the next 6 months and a great dentist. Having been to two appointments now at Dickson Park Dental Surgery I've found myself actively recommending it to others. The appointments started on schedule (no waiting around for half an hour), the prices were clearly explained and comparable (possibly slightly cheaper) than my old dentist and the team were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable without being preachy. The availability of appointments originally drew me to the clinic (my old dentist had a waiting time of about 6 months). When I rang to book my appointment Rose (one of the admin team) was friendly and I found the same when I arrived the following day. Based at Dickson,parking is easy. The dentist (Dr. Lucille Pereira) was kind (despite my poor dental health and the need for 2 fillings) and made me feel like there were easy things I could do to take better care of my teeth without being in trouble (floss, limit sugar to meal times etc). She explained everything as she went and by the time I left I was happy to have a new dentist. Their rates are competitive but it's their service that has made me recommend them (several times in the last two weeks) to friends and family.

Very soothing and encouragingJodie, Australia, 02 06 15

I've been experiencing extreme nerve pain on the right side of my face for several months and have been to several dentists, a maxillofacial surgeon and my GP and no one was able to make it go away. Dr Davies gave me the first stage of a root canal today and he's hopeful that that should fix it! Will be so excited if he's right. Even if not, it was infected so had to be done, and the whole team were wonderful, very soothing, very encouraging, really good for someone like me who is very nervous about dental procedures. The happy gas helped a lot, as did the pre-procedure meditation that Dr Davies took me through. Big props to Suzie on reception, who was super kind and considerate in talking me through the ongoing treatment plan. It's obviously expensive, but certainly comparable to anywhere else in Canberra, and I really appreciated, as a full time student, that they have student discounts. Office is centrally located - parking a bit tricky (unless you have an ANU parking permit) - but their website does give you lots of options to help with that. Waiting room is comfy, procedure rooms are clean and well appointed. I liked that Dr Davies suggested that I might like to bring my headphones next time, as listening to soothing music would aid the happy gas in bringing me relaxation. Nice tip. All good :) Thanks for taking care of me Dr Davies and team!
