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 more pleasedMiles, Canada, 18 11 20

Before I begin, readers need to know that my family, friends, and associates know me as a chronically grumpy, cranky, loud critic. I've never been accused of handing out compliments lightly. Years ago, my mouth, from what I was informed had absorbed some rare bacteria and become destroyed. It eventually became what can only be described as a "toxic dump." Not being wealthy, I researched (all-on-four implants for upper/lower) where I live, in Canada, the US (I'm a dual citizen), Argentina, Vietnam, Australia, etc., and of course, Mexico. I was extremely disappointed. I was evaluated locally with X-rays, etc., but then I'd be led into a tiny booth, and clearly, it was like I was buying some overpriced used car with not even a written statement of what I was going to receive. The obscene cost and their emotionally manipulative strategies were just plain offensive. I have modest savings. But mostly, I have no time for people I don't find trustworthy. I began communicating with multiple dental clinics in CR (Costa Rica). 'One clinic stood out like a "four-leaf clover" -- Urzola Dentistry. The administrator went back and forth with me by email, answering very tough questions. He was straight up, no-nonsense, honest, and after a week or so, we came to a detailed agreement. After flights, accommodations, travel insurance, and lots of rigamarole, I was met, as the clinic insisted, by someone with my name on a sign at the CR airport - 'good thing because San Jose driving is an "adventure." I smartly reserved a rental car for my third day. The very friendly driver took me to my accommodations that I made certain were within 15 minutes of the clinic. The next day, I'm picked up again, and we arrive at the tall building across the street from San Jose stadium. The building security only allows medical personnel or patients. Everyone entering is also required to follow strict medical measures for the safety of all. I think, "Hmmm. 'A good start." The driver escorts me up to the clinic. A wonderful lady, Adriana greets me. Shortly after, a man in scrubs comes out and introduces himself. Within seconds, I wish this guy was my next-door neighbor. He's real - genuinely friendly. No BS. It's Doctor Urzola. He takes me into the surgery room, and I get a detailed, thorough run-through of the next day/week schedule. He answers every pesky question I have. I am getting more relieved. Maybe, this won't wind up being something I deeply regret. I meet his very courteous, obviously very competent assistants, the same Adriana, and also Francheska. All three are making me feel more confident right away. It's not some Kumbaya. Everything is in the same building. Yes, just like the commercials you see on TV for other implant companies, the ones that charge a fortune. The Anesthetist prefers I not only not eat anything but also no fluids for 12 hours. It's unusual, and yet, again, I'm quite impressed. My medical safety is their first priority. 'Excellent. The next day I'm picked up and arrive for surgery. All the equipment is completely state of the art. Without even asking, Doc Urzola shows me my three-dimensional X-rays. Crazy accurate. And then, he demonstrates how he can take every single section of both upper and lower jaws where he is able to know exactly where he can place the metal inserts. He explains, while I watch, what length/width of insert he can choose for each particular section - the lines he draws display minute measurements. I have taught complicated software at a major University in Canada. I see Dr Urzola show off this software, specifically with my 3D image, and I am utterly impressed. The jaw inserts are what the implants will be secured to. It's time. I am monitored, with all equipment throughout that you would find in any hospital - pulse-ox, BP, etc., by the Anesthetist who gives me sedation. This is when the Doc and his team do what they do - focus like a laser and do their magic. I like professionals who know what they’re doing and just use the years of experience, along with a clear commitment to complete the mission. For a sceptic like me, I know I am in excellent hands. When done, a couple of hours or so, I am ready to chill and driven back to my accommodations. There's a reason for that. Don't believe that nonsense on TV commercials of "done in one day." This dental clinic intelligently spans the first process over 4/5 days. It's normal to go through a few days of some swelling. The Doc has gone over with me what antibiotics supplied (if needed), mild yet quite efficient pain killers for a few days. 'Normal. He's very detailed. Trust him. Follow his advice. The next day I discover, to my delight, examples of the prosthetics - teeth. They are stunningly natural-looking. Doc Urzola works with me closely, and he was right to convince me on a specific shade that matched my skin colour, and so forth. Perfect. A couple of days later, I get a temporary implant put in. Amazing. I get the next week off, head to the coast at a beautiful guest house, then come into the clinic on my airline travel back day for a final check and any adjustments - some minor grinding to get the "bite" at a premium condition. All included. I am back in four months; once my jaw bone has naturally merged with the inserts. At that point, new impressions are made; then, I will have the permanents. The permanents are exactly the same ultra-high, even stronger quality that you will find anywhere in the world at any price. I know. I have experienced Dentures. I wouldn't wish them on any person. And if you look closely at Denture costs and the constant adjustments; the Urzola clinic can deliver actual implants for about the same price (completely different, comfortable, no gagging, adhesives -- you can actually taste the food, etc.). Dentures can be a nightmare. So. Did I find that I saved tens of thousands of dollars and yet, discovered the proverbial, "You get what you pay for?" No way. I got the best, dignified communications, safe medical care, precise procedures, patient care, stunning workmanship, and ultimately, top-quality prosthetic elements. I couldn't be more pleased. I also, on my time off there, discovered the people of Costa Rica. No, I didn't do something stupid like park my rental car in a back alley and walk out there alone in the middle of the night. Uh, no! You nor I would do that in whatever country you live in -- right? I walked in CR neighbourhoods. I drove slowly (respectful of people/dogs/cats in busy small streets – the local's notice) – I said hi to complete strangers outside some tiny market, and all I found was the most hard-working, friendly, and helpful people I have ever met. I was greeted back with a big smile - and then, with my pathetic Spanish and hand signals, they would lead me to something I wanted to buy. I never ever once felt afraid in Costa Rica. The CR people, "Ticos" are one of a kind. Unique, hospitable, helpful, and also, quite funny. They love a good laugh! The point? I'm not writing here that Urzola Dentristy is excellent, but of course, Costa Rica is a scary place, so be afraid. NO! Exactly the opposite. Dr Urzola, his team – Adriana and Francheska, administrators, including the Anesthetist, Lab technicians, are people I sincerely like and respect; I also trust them implicitly. I can't wait to get back in four months. And there's a bonus. I get to be among the Ticos again, with my “permanent” smile back. "Pura Vida!"

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!

Dr Calvo and his staff were very friendly and professionalJames, US, 30 11 18

I started having problems with my 4 unit bridge becoming unglued from the anchor teeth. One of the anchor teeth had degenerated so much that there was no longer enough left to glue to .My dentist decided that we needed to extract the anchor teeth as well as the tooth behind it, insert implants and a new 5 unit bridge. After his price quote, I decided to look elsewhere. Through WhatClinic I discovered Jehova Rapha. I was given a quote of $4200 for the total job which was about a third of what I was quoted at home. Dr Calvo graduated from the U. of Frankfurt and was very professional and easy to work with. He extracted the 3 teeth and installed 2 implants. I return to his clinic in 4 months (after healing) to have the bridge installed. So far, I am very happy with the process. Dr Calvo and his staff were very friendly and professional.I was picked up at the airport and driven to my appointments free of charge. I used a B&B affiliated with the clinic and was very happy with it. I took my wife with me and we were charged $65 a day which included breakfast and dinner. The meals were delicious and sumptuous, the room very clean, and the staff very friendly. One thing I really liked about Jehova Rapha was that there was no waiting and they saw me right away. I look forward to returning in 4 month to have my bridge installed. I highly recommend Jehova Rapha...........James

Excellent, nothing short of amazing and all done within three daysIvan, US, 19 03 19

First off, I'm a retired Investigations Division Commander and graduate of the FBI National Academy. So I did my homework before choosing Dr Gadea and Dr Hernandez. I had a total of 7 root canals, one surgical root canal, two new root canals and four redos. I had a 5 tooth bridge and three crowns, total reconstruction of my teeth, CT scan and a number of composites. Was I sceptical before going all the way to Costa Rica, you bet I was? But I knew that the amount of work that had to be done would cost me a fortune in the US. In total, we probably saved close to 18 thousand dollars. So how was the work? Excellent, nothing short of amazing and all done within three days. Dr Gadea and Dr Hernandez (root canals) were the best Dentists I have ever had. Dr Gadea is UCLA trained and both Dr Hernandez and Gedea are a perfectionist. As for the staff, they treated us like a family, superior staff. So if you're worried or concerned that this may be too risky, put your mind at ease, send me an e-mail and I will respond to you. Oh yes, there is a four-year warranty if you still have concerns. Thank you Dr Gedea for taking such good care of us. Yes, Dr Gedea speaks excellent English.

I haven't been this happy and confident about myself and my smile in over 30 yearsMargaret, US, 06 02 18

I needed extensive dental work including 3 root canals, two dental implants bridge replacements and dental whitening. In the United States not only did my doctor make me feel uncomfortable and embarrassed but he wanted to charge me $32000. Of course, that was not obtainable so I thought I was going to have to live with my mouth this way or resort to dentures. From the moment I contacted Costa Rica dental laboratories the coordinator was extremely professional very thorough in looking at my case came up with a treatment plan and when I arrived she and the whole staff made me feel like family. All the treatments that I had which occurred in one day did not hurt one bit and they were thoroughly professional. Due to my work circumstances I had to leave one day early and the staff was so involved emotionally with me that they came in in the middle of the night to complete my case so that I could leave with my permanent zirconium dental work. Since I had the treatment they have still kept in contact with me making sure the dental work that was performed is working properly for me, that I'm comfortable and not in pain, and that I'm happy. This is something that my United States dentist would never consider doing. I highly highly recommend Costa Rica dental lab well over any of the dental labs in Costa Rica. There were many people in my hotel who were going through the same thing. I was at different dental outlets and were consistently having troubles regarding not having water, computer systems down, dentist not showing up, and they had to extend their trip for weeks on end. They said they where treated like cattle being dragged in and out like animals. When I told them of my experience they all switched to Costa Rica dental labs because they saw the beautiful work that has been done for me. I haven't been this happy and confident about myself and my smile in over 30 years. I feel like a new woman reborn confident and ready to take on the world and I have Costa Rica dental laboratories to thank for that.

Today I have a full mouth of beautiful teethDavid, US, 28 01 20

After doing extensive research I decided to have my dental work done at Dr. Cavallini’s office in San Jose Costa Rica. My teeth were in terrible shape! I had many cavities, broken, chipped, three missing teeth and impounded wisdom teeth. My thoughts had been I would need all teeth pulled and either implants or false. After flying to their office from Cincinnati, Oh I received a full assessment of my problems and my case was assigned to Dr Mora. Dr Mora assured me he could give me a full-mouth restoration. I was there my first trip for a week. My wisdom teeth were pulled plus two others. Three implants were put in and all my remaining teeth were ground to receive crowns at a later date. Temporary uppers and lowers were put in place until I would return in around 4 months. On my return for the completion of the restoration, I would have 26 zirconium crowns fitted and placed. Only 2 original teeth were kept in place as they were. Please understand this! When my original teeth were ground to receive crowns at a later date I was left with nerve sensation. Today I have a full mouth of beautiful teeth. I can sense pressure when chewing, my tongue touching my teeth, a finger touching them and when I use my water pic I feel the water hitting them. Dr Mora and his assistant Laura were simply amazing. The whole experience was beyond words. In my words, I must say my teeth are an absolute miracle. I want to express my greatest of gratitude for for my results! Please don’t be afraid to change your life. All my work was done with local anaesthesia and my pain was very limited. My restoration has now been completed for 1 year. They function as if they were my original teeth. Before I end this I need to complement the whole staff and office. They are kind, caring and very professional. Trust me if you are going to Costa Rica for dental your choice should start and end with Dr Cavallini’s office! PS My dental was done for a fraction of US prices!
