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.

There is no other place in the world you will be better cared forApril, US, 02 02 20

I have just returned from the beautiful country of Costa Rica After spending 2 years of misery and lots of cash on dental implants in the states, when I was told I needed further Implantology I decided to look outside the US for better care. There are too many General Dentists in the good old USA trying to make money off patients who need Dental Implants. This time I decided to get my implants from an expert. Dr Urzola and his team are Dental Experts! Dr Urzola had my 2 implants placed in an hour. He even came to my hotel later that evening when I needed additional pain control. I would have never received that kind of personal caring care in the states. Additionally, I need to shout praises from the rooftop on the amount of hospitality showered on me before, during and after my trip from Andres. He called me personally and answered all my questions to aid me in my decision to come to Costa Rica for care. His answers to my questions came swiftly. Once I was in Costa Rica he made sure all my needs were met from picking me up at the airport, making sure I got my rental car with no hassles and the knowledge that he and his team were there to help every step of the way when travelling in their country. Believe me, this was a huge comfort as I was a single woman travelling alone in a country I have never been to. I have to say, Samara and Carillo's beach are two of the most beautiful places I have ever been (and I have travelled extensively throughout my life but never alone). If you are considering a Dental Vacation, look no further than Dental Solutions, there is no other place in the world you will be better cared for! P.S. I saved over $5000 USD.

I'm very happy to be able to smile againBrittany, US, 03 08 19

My name is Brittany and I'm 37. I have had progressively bad teeth for the past 15 years. I kept having them fixed but they started getting very painful the last couple years. I saw several dentists in the states who recommended having them all pulled and getting dentures. I didn't like this suggestion at all and started searching for an alternative. That's when I came across Gabriel and Dental Pluss. After several months of us planning, we flew with our son to Costa Rica! I had 7 implants on the top and 9 root canals on the bottom along with four fillings. Everyone there was very kind and accommodating! They called in an anesthesiologist and a root canal specialist. They did an excellent job of keeping the procedures pain-free which was one of my main concerns. I loved being able to recover by the pool at the beautiful hotel! I'm very happy to be able to smile again and excited to continue my treatment in a couple of months! Thank you so much, Gabriel and everyone at Dental Pluss for all you did! We loved our experience and so glad God led us there!

A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighboring teeth.

I’ve found my courage and my dentistJody, BOCA RATON, 30 04 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.

Dental implants are artificial roots that can be place in the maxilla or in the mandible creating a solid base where it can be perform either individual or a whole mouth restoration. The implants will allow you to chew, smile and talk secure and comfortable. This is the most natural, new and healthy way to replace lost teeth.The dental implants are made of titanium because it doesn’t reject tissues and fits perfectly with the bone. At Costa Rica Dental Services we use only the best implants on the market such as ZIMMER, 3i or MIS.

The experience was amazingMichael, Canada, 02 05 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.

I am very pleased with the way the procedure went and the resultsJeanette, Atlanta Ga, 22 10 19

I have been going to San Jose Costa Rica for years. Dr. Castro and Dr. Anglada are my dentists. I have had implants for over 7 years, no problems. Every dentist in the US who see my work always compliment the professionalism and the great results. My last visit I got (5) porcelain crowns (1) Root Canal (1) filling and (3) post and I am very pleased with the way the procedure went and the results. I now have beautiful crowns in front of my mouth. Dr Castro and his daughter Juliane were both very easy to work with.
