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.

Ballestero Dental Care

Torre Medica Pacific Plaza Hospital Cima Guanacaste, Comunidad, 5001
Rating from 1 Review The experience was amazingMichael, Canada, 02 May 18

Two dentists in Canada recommended dental implants in place of my lower teeth. I was on vacation in Costa Rica and decided to get another opinion. I first approached another dentist in Coco but was turned off by his manner. I then sent my file to Dr. Ballestero. From that moment it was clear that Dr. B was different! He phoned me in Canada to discuss the recommendations and ultimately he recommended I do not go the full implant route. Not only was the cost less than 1/4 of the quotes I received in Canada - but the time, and care, and concern were far superior to what I had been receiving or have ever received from a dentist. I had the work done in March 2018 and the experience was amazing. Dr. Ballestero's professionalism coupled with his caring manner are unmatched. If there was a way to give him more than 5 stars I would! I would happily recommend Dr. Ballestero to anyone considering any level of dental treatment.

North Pacific Dental

Tamarindo, Royal Palms Plaza # 13, Guanacaste
Rating from 21 Reviews Instantly won my trustPam, US, 22 Jan 16

I contacted Dr. Diego to see if I could get a root canal while vacationing in Tamarindo. Prior to contacting him, I saw nothing but great reviews of him online. He was very prompt to reply to my messages and questions. He arranged for Ingrid Meza Conejo, Endo specialist for my root canal. I was a bit nervous being out the the USA and getting this done, but they made me feel very comfortable and spoke very good english. The facility was clean and comfortable. The procedure went very well, no issues, no pain beyond feeling uncomfortable from the Novocaine. While getting a root canal done on vacation isn't my idea of fun, I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Saved me a ton of $$$ over getting in done in the US. Great people and great service. I knew I needed a root canal but wasn't excited about paying a ton of $$$$ in the USA. I stumbled across a review on Trip Advisor for North Pacific Dental while planning a vacation in Tamarindo (Jan 2016). I told my husband if I wasn't comfortable with Dr. Diego or Ingrid I wouldn't go through with it. They instantly won my trust and made me and my husband feel comfortable about the whole procedure.
