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 couldn’t be happier with the results of my new teethTheresa, Costa Rica, 17 11 21

I was treated by Dr Urzola for two crowns on my two front teeth. I became aware of this clinic because my husband was also a previous patient and received a full set of upper and lower implants. Which turned out great. I chipped my teeth and received two crowns and a laser whitening procedure and I couldn’t be happier with the results of my new teeth! The service was excellent and everyone was friendly and extremely attentive to my needs. I was amazed at the value of the service I received from Dr Urzola and he saved me thousands of dollars on my procedure compared to the costs in the US

The clinic was clean and the equipment very advancedShelia, US, 13 05 19

I went for porcelain veneers, however, after I got there he also took all the metal fillings out and replaced with white(6). Put a post and crown in an old root canal, bleached the bottoms and replaced my bonding with the porcelain veneers. They did it all in 4 days. He has several dentists working in different areas. Transportation was provided in both ways. The clinic was clean and the equipment very advanced. The dentist all spoke English, the rest of the staff tried. San Jose on the side we were on is a very run down area. Bars and night time security. However, we felt safe but we did not wander. Prices on everything is higher than the States except the dental work. Price was about 1/8 of what I was quoted in the USA.

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…
