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.

Costa Rica Dental Services

Rating from 35 Reviews I’ve found my courage and my dentistJody, BOCA RATON, 30 Apr 18

I grind my teeth at night when I’m sleeping. This has ruined my teeth, given me headaches and damaged the Dental work I’ve already had. If that’s not enough I’ve had a disastrous encounter with an endodontist that resulted in 2 surgeries, a root canal, 2 crowns and finally the loss of the tooth. The pain was so traumatic that I’m afraid of the dentist. Thank goodness my moment of courage occurred at Costa Rica Dental Services. After careful consideration, we (yes, I was included) determined I needed 2 root canals redone (because 2 different US dentists failed to notice roots with more than 1 nerve.) A broken tooth needed a root canal (that was the reason for the courage) and 3 implants - 1 from the endodontist nightmare and 2 from root canals that couldn’t be completed without agony. (I’m wondering how many other teeth I had with 2 nerves per root.) Before I left I had a largely failed filling replaced and small worn places on my front teeth filled so I could smile. Up to this point, any exceptional dentist could have done the work I had. I have never met an exceptional dentist before but I’m sure they exist somewhere other than this office. In addition to bonding (my word not the dentists), my front teeth to fill the worn off enamel Dr. Gadea built up a tooth that was pushed behind the other front tooth and blended the effect so my crooked teeth look straight. Not straighter - straight! He also used that same bonding to make a rough line on the bottom of my teeth smooth and even. When I gasped and stared at him unable to speak from shock at my suddenly improved appearance he said,”This is what I love to do. When I get started I just have to make the teeth look better.” I have to go back to have the crowns when the implants have healed but I’ve found my courage and my dentist. I would dream of going anywhere else. In a scale of 1 to 10, Costa Rica Dental Services is a 20.

Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab

(888) 491-7315 Curridabat: Diagonal Esquina Noreste Plaza Jose Maria Zeledon, Curridabat
Rating from 91 Reviews Thank you all at Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab!!!Shirlean, US, 20 Oct 16

I was a patient at Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab in September 2016. My treatment was amazing. The staff is very friend and also very knowledgeable. They had just returned from a week's training the day before I arrived. I had a whole smile makeover which included 2 root canals, an implant and removal of two top wisdom teeth. Everything possible was done to make me comfortable and calm during my visits. I left with a wonderful smile that feels more natural every day. The only surprise I had was not realizing it would take a couple of weeks to get adjusted to everything and I should have realized that myself. I would highly recommend (and have) this clinic to all my friends! I truly believe that having Francisco the lab tech there in the clinic to work hand in hand with the dentists made all of the difference in the way my final crowns fit and looked. Also, they worked on me until 8:00 at night on the day I arrived with the implantologist coming in at night to do my implant. I had absolutely NO issues and more importantly NO pain whatsoever! Even the temporary denture they put in during my stay was comfortable and looked good enough to go out in public. They got everything done so that I could enjoy 5 days off while they crafted my crowns which they placed the day before I left. All in all this was an amazing experience which continues to get better as I settle in and become more comfortable daily with my new smile. Thank you all at Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab!!!

Dr Marco Muñoz Cavallini International Dental Clinic

Rating from 62 Reviews I am finally done and cannot be happier with the resultPaula, Canada, 18 Dec 15

I looked for a clinic in Costa Rica after getting 2 failed bridges done in Cozumel. I decided to go with this clinic due to the amount of experience these doctors have and the team in place. I started my treatment for 3 implants in May 2015. When I finished in Dec 2015, I had 4 implants, 7 crowns. I am finally done and cannot be happier with the result. It cost me way less than it would have in Canada (50%) and I had 2 amazing vacations in Costa Rica! My initial experience was just ok. The office staff was a little cold at first. I expected a warmer, friendlier greeting. I had a root canal and 3 implants. I had a lot of pain one of the nights due to too much work on one side. Mainly from the root canal....The implant surgery was fast and fairly pain free. But, after returning home, my tooth broke...that had the root canal done. On the second visit, I had to have an extraction, of the failed root canal and an implant put in place, plus 7 crowns. (they kindly deducted the amount paid for the root canal) The worst part was the extraction. I found the office staff very pleasant this time. Expect to wait sometimes. If you are told 2 pm, your apt can be more like 4pm, There is not always a dentist available due to surgeries and high volume. I would have liked to have the stages explained to me as I went along - I had no idea what to expect when.. I stayed at Barcelo San Jose Palacio. It is only 8 km away. It was a great choice, comfortable, great food and an awesome pool area to help 'get away' in the middle of very busy, bustling San Jose and dental work stress. Make sure you stay on a higher floor though due to ballroom noise....The drivers for the clinic are very good, know where they are going and it is a great worry free service they provide around the clock. They were available of the time and are very friendly. Over all, I am so happy with the end result. My teeth look and feel amazing! Dr. Marco Jr. did my implants. He was fast and funny. Dr. Trueblood did the rest and he was excellent, very skilled and kind. My bite is perfecto! I felt very comfortable with the staff. For a near perfect end result with your dental issues and a great vacation (if you add in a week or so to travel...) I would not hesitate to recommend this clinic to anyone. Thank you to Dr. Marco Jr. and his outstanding TEAM! Muchos Gracius!

Dr.Edwin Valverde and Associates

(360) 215-3243 200 mts south west from Correos de Costa Rica,Zapote., San Jose
Rating from 2 Reviews Hygienically clean and up to the professional standardsTariq, Costa Rica, 27 Jul 18

Fantastic professional. Having very good knowledge and expertise. He is very good experienced though during talk maybe you will not feel it, after treatment, you will find him the best dentist. Easy access to his clinic from San Jose, Costa Rica. Use maps me, an offline map if don’t want to use Taxi or Uber and in this way. You will also get the information and knowledge about the city. I found this doctor the best and the price is good. I will highly recommend this doctor. He has very good services and standards are not less than the USA or Canadian. I am from Calgary, Canada and I think if you don’t have insurance for root canal treatment etc. this clinic is the best choice. Hygienically clean and up to the professional standards. Thanks, the doctor for all your professional treatment. I really appreciate it. Thanks.

Jehovah Rapha Medical Center

(888) 277-1286 Guayabos, Curridabat, Curridabat, 11803
Rating from 35 Reviews I have healed perfectlyDavid, playa del rey, 12 Feb 16

Treatment was just like any other dental treatment in the USA. I felt the tools were clean. The dentist was professional. I didn't feel like they were trying to up-sell me any unneeded services. They picked me up from my hotel and dropped me off all at no additional cost. If you don't have dental insurance in the US why not spend the extra money you would save on a flight and have the work done in Costa Rica I was nervous about getting dental work in a foreign country but Jehova Rapha made me as comfortable as possible. It's been a month since having two root canals and two extractions and I have healed perfectly and I saved hundreds of dollars. If I ever need dental work in the future I know where I'll return!

Root canals $100  -  $300
This treatment is performed by Dr. Esteban Ulate or his wife Dra. Bianca Amaya both highly trained root canal specialist. The root canal therapy is require when a tooth has an infection or is in constant pain, also can be performed to help to recover the height of the tooth for a crown preparation.
Complex Root Canal $200  -  $300
Anything is complex when you have the right staff in your office. We have 2 highly trained root canal specialist and it is very unlikely that both of them cant solve a situation in a perfect way. So I really recommend to choose our clinic because 2 brains thinks better than 1.

Cleo Dental

Avenida 14, Cale 42, 100 S McDonalds, Sabana Sur, 1007
Rating from 1 Review The best of the bestAngela, Costa Rica, 24 Jun 17

I needed extensive work on my bottom teeth- 2 root canals, a bridge, 2 veneers, and caps. As well as, a gum scaling. The best of the best. Dr. Castro and his team are perfectionists, and gave me a level of care second to none. I've had similar work done in the U.S., for three times the price, dragged out over a period of years. My time in CR was limited, Dr. Castro and his team worked overtime on two separate nights, so I could leave CR with a beautiful smile. From the girls at the front desk to Dr. Castro and the rest of his team, professionalism at its finest. Thank you, CLEO Dental!
