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.

Jehovah Rapha Medical Center

(855) 501-5798 Plaza Express Guayabos, Pozos, 11803
Rating from 37 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!

Rating from 38 Reviews I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a first class clinicJim, Buffalo, 22 Apr 16

Root Canal, Tooth Extraction, Bone Graft, Two Dental Implants. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a first class clinic that can take care of all your dental needs. The value was exceptional. I narrowed it down to three clinics eventually choosing Costa Rica Dental Services and Dr Gadea Ramirez. My emails were promptly answered, I was able to email X-rays for review prior to my trip and all my questions were answered promptly. Walking into the clinic for the first visit immediately put my mind at ease and I realized I had made the right choice. Make no mistake this is a modern up to date dental clinic staffed by highly professional personal. Dr Gadea personally goes over your treatment and reviews all the cost with you prior to treatment. His follow up is as exceptional as his work. How many times has a medical professional told you how much he loves his profession and then gives you his cell phone number in case you need to reach him over the weekend. Couldn't be happier with my decision. Going back in the fall to complete the treatment really looking forward to it.

I had three done quickly and painlessly by Dr.Urzola. I chose Dental Pluss because it is not a factory, I was treated like family.

Vitality Imagine Dental Clinic

(202) 759-8037 Barrio Escalante, 15 Avenue, San Jose
Rating from 2 Reviews She was genuinely concerned for my well beingBruce, Canada, 10 Oct 17

The staff was very friendly and speak good English. My dentist Andrea gave me her best advice of what I should expect and my requirements, after reading the X-rays. She suggested 2 extractions, one I expected. They installed 6 implants, 2 into the extractions, and 1 bone graft as I had eye tooth extracted. The Surgeon was trained in Germany, I forget his name. He explained the procedure saying it was very simple. Unfortunately, I didn't keep track of time in the chair, but it was not very long, and my only little discomfort, mostly from extractions, which is normal. The implants were easy. I have already told a friend and the value is beyond compare. I chose this clinic after consulting via email, and they booked hotel along with Taxi service to and from hotel, and airport made it very easy. The staff speak very good English and were very helpful with restaurants or anything. Andrea my dentist called my Hotel after my surgery to be sure I was doing well, she was genuinely concerned for my well being, something I have never experienced from a dentist. I would highly recommend Vitality, furthermore, I will be returning to complete my required work.

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.

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!

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.

8 implants and a nice smile I was very pleased with the treatment, the staff were great. Friendly atmosphere. A must visit if you are looking for a nice smile. I was working in Costa Rica and I found Dr. Rubinstein on the web. Dr. Rubinstaein works with Dr. Coslada, who in 1 hour and 15 minutes placed 8 implants in my mouth (zero pain) in both clinics. I thank them both and salute them from Adana Turkey, where I am at present.
