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.

(888) 491-7315 Curridabat: Diagonal Esquina Noreste Plaza Jose Maria Zeledon, Curridabat
Rating from 88 Reviews A magician with making the best fitted crownLaura, Florida, 01 Sep 15

I absolutely loved Gia, Francisco, Marcella and the gal who performed my root canal. I had a number of procedures and was so impressed with their professionalism, care for their patient from my pick up at the airport and my first few days accomodations throughout the work needed to be done for me. I cannot say enough great things about my experience with them. I had lived in Alajuela, CR for almost 10 years and found with USA dental visit I needed to have a root canal, crown, etc. He only was interested in pulling the molar. I also nearly fell out when I heard the costs associated with the work to be done as pulling my tooth was not my option. I went to my usual sources for returning to Costa Rica and having my work done there. Even with the cost of airfare and few days of stay I came out way ahead in costs. I would recommend to everyone coming here for all dental work. Was totally painless and did not feel over tired from the 6 hours in the chair the first day. Marcella has little tiny hands and did not feel like my jaw was out of line or bruised from the work involved. Two days later she installed my crown and completed my work. Wow...only took 3 days and am so thrilled I came here. I have told all my friends/famaily here about my experience and am happy to escort them if necessary to get all their work done, my Spanish is not the best but way better than most. Excellent, excellent and thrilled to have work done economically, quickly and with obvious care in mind every step of my process. The clinic had all the most up to date equipment as any dental office I have been in the USA. The staff spoke excellent English and were concerned with me being comfortable and relaxed which with Marcella's suggestion (deep breathing) was perfect.The location in San Jose was perfect, not too busy and commercial but had lots of little stores to walk to. Francisco is a magician with making the best fitted crown, it was installed with NO CORRECTIONS. They were fast, careful and so professional for me. I loved them all and would go back to have more work done anytime! The entire staff made me feel like family and were so kind to me. Thank you.

Rating from 61 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!

Costa Rica Dental Services

Rating from 32 Reviews The Root Canal, Teeth Cleaning and Crown procedures were pain freeDevin, La Honda, 09 Sep 16

I had 3 root canals, and crowns (molars), and a cleaning, that needed to be done and I couldn't afford to have the work done in the United States, even at low income discount rates. It was scary having work done in a foreign country but everything turned out great! It was only $2000 and comparable services around here were at around $6000. It was great, all of the work was done in a week, Dr. Gadea was very professional, and the procedure was pain free and done with modern equipment. I couldn't be happier with the quality of work. It was quick, painless and I really feel like my crowns are VERY high quality. I will be back for all of my future dental work, you can count on that! If you're wondering if it's worth the risk to travel to a new country to get a break on dental services it totally is.

Jehovah Rapha Medical Center

(888) 277-1286 Guayabos, Curridabat, Curridabat, 11803
Rating from 30 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!

Ballestero Dental Care

(877) 304-0812 ext: 12677 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.

Rating from 3 Reviews Great customer serviceTerri, Costa Rica, 08 Oct 13

I have found the entire team at Costa Rica Dental Team to be knowledgeable and friendly, and experienced in all of their products and services. They provide a much needed service at a very affordable price, but then make it even better with great customer service, including follow-ups after your treatment. The fact that the dentists and staff speak both English and Spanish was a huge selling point for me.
