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.

Rating from 29 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.

Dr Marco Muñoz Cavallini International Dental Clinic

(877) 519-4628 Calles 28-30, Avenida 3 bis 2841, San Jose
Rating from 60 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!

(888) 277-1286 Porvenir, San Jose, Desamparados, 10312
Rating from 28 Reviews Looking to get great dental work at an affordable price!Arturo, Davenport, 25 Jan 15

Dental crowns. I contacted Dr. Cotos' office and spoke with Olger Gonzalez regarding some dental work that I needed to get done. They were very attentive and knowledgeable regarding the treatment that I wanted to get done. In Florida, I received a finalized treatment plan which was for three veneers and abutment/crown for an implant, which was going to cost me about $7000. Dr. Cotos' office did it for far less, approximately $1400. Once I got to Costa Rica, I decided to do some preliminary procedures done as well like a root canal ($350) and four fillings ($250) since the prices were very affordable. Alexander Montero, which is the general orthodontist, did the root canal and the fillings; he was fantastic! Very professional, and made the entire procedure pain-free. Dr. Coto did the crowns afterward and I was very pleased with the end results. The staff is very professional, very knowledgeable, and their resources, such as materials and technology, are up to modern standards. I would recommend this dentistry to anyone looking to get great dental work at an affordable price!

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.

Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab

(888) 491-7315 Curridabat: Diagonal Esquina Noreste Plaza Jose Maria Zeledon, Curridabat
Rating from 80 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!!!
