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.

I was thoroughly amazedDelvin, Bahamas, 10 11 23

My trip to Costa Rica was exceptional, from the moment I landed, I felt welcomed. Having a representative greet me, walked me through immigration to getting me to Gabriel, I was thoroughly impressed. After getting me to my hotel, getting checked in and getting to the clinic all in the same day, I was excited to get my dental work done. After consultation with the doctor and his finding cavities that my previous dentist did not identify, he filled them with ease. Getting me prepared for the crowns was an easy and painless experience. I was thoroughly amazed; the crowns were ready to be installed in less than 48 hours. The very reasonable cost, speed and efficiency of doing my dental work here in Costa Rica has led me to recommend this service to several of my colleagues and family who have already booked their visit here to get their dental work done. I would 100% recommend Clear Choice Dental Costa Rica to all my family and friends. Thank you, Gabriel and Dr Cubero, Great work I am thoroughly pleased.

Toothlessness and unfixed tooth replacements can cause problems while eating and speaking. It is common for those who wear dentures to lose their taste sensations (salty, sour, bitter, hot) as the taste buds are covered by denture adhesive. In addition, chewing can be difficult resulting in severe digestive problems. Dentures start to move after a while due to jaw bone loss. Moving dentures can cause bruising and sores in the mouth, making everyday life uncomfortable. Dental implants are very similar to natural teeth in function and appearance. Implants improve the ability to taste and chew, another reason why implants are an ideal replacement for missing teeth. Dental implants act as artificial roots, which have been inserted into the jaw bone to fuse together with the bone and are then loaded with crowns or a bridge to provide firm, stable teeth.

The office is well equipped and very cleanCathy, Costa Rica, 20 04 23

Seven of my family members and a few coworkers have gone to Dr Calvo for dentistry work. So while my sister was travelling to have work done that she was quoted $31,000 in the USA, I decided to go with her and have some minor work done. I was so amazed how smooth the whole process is. From the second you land at the airport and Olger picks you up, through the initial check-up by Dr Calvo and the estimate to go the work to the work being done for a fraction of the cost of US dentist. Dr Calvo and his staff are very professional, speak fluent English explains everything he can do for you and the price. While having the work done they are caring and gentle. My sisters total price was $3400 compared to the $31,000 estimate she received in the USA. She didn’t need as much as she was told by the US dentist but did receive four root canals and a bridge with six teeth, as well as a deep cleaning. All done within two visits/ two days. Surprisingly she had NO PAIN whatsoever. I just had a deep cleaning, three silver/mercury fillings I got when I was a child replaced, and a whitening treatment and paid right at $500 No pain and now I have the most shiniest teeth that I have had in years. The office is well equipped and very clean. The shopping centre is very nice and clean At the end of the shopping center is a very nice grocery store that has everything you could possibly need. So happy I finally decided to come to see for myself how wonderful Dr Calvo and Olger are. Absolutely the BEST.

My teeth look natural (not extremely white) which is what I asked the doctor forAndrea, US, 11 09 21

Traveling to Costa Rica from Los Angeles for dental work for the first time was absolutely terrifying. But after deep comparisons and research, Dr. Gadea’s dental work looked the best and the most natural by far. I’ve been dealing with my gummy smile all my life, and had misshaped and miscoloured teeth from some bad bonding work that I had gotten about 15 years ago. I was determined to get this fixed, but knew that I could not afford a local dentist. I contacted Gadea’s office and began coordinating with his staff immediately. It took me months to finally book my trip, but I’ve got to tell you this was the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. The procedure was painless, there was some swelling to my face, but it subsided after a few days. After getting my dental work (8 veneers, and lessened my gummy smile, straighten a few teeth)I can smile naturally without covering it. I’m so much more confident than before. My teeth look natural (not extremely white) which is what I asked the doctor for… I was afraid I would have some big drastic change to my mouth and people would know immediately that I had work done. I didn’t want to look like someone else. After I returned to the US, my friends never brought up my teeth. They just say wow you look so good. Because I still look like myself, just a better version. If I would have gotten this work here in LA, there is no way that I would be able to afford it. And I’m certain that it would not look as good. I highly recommend Dr. Gadea’s office to you if you’re reading this…
