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.

My full restoration has left me with a beautiful smile and renewed self-confidenceSean, Costa Rica, 19 03 19

I have had two trips to Star Dental. My first trip lasted 2 weeks and during that time I was evaluated by Dr Sevilla and had an implant, 2 root canals and crown lengthening. I was fitted with a set of temporary crowns and then returned home after 2 weeks. I had a severe case of bruxism and the evaluation period with the temporary crowns was needed to determine my wear patterns. I was quite happy with the work done by Dr Sevilla and the specialists, an Endodontist and Periodontist, who were brought to the office to facilitate the additional procedures. After healing for three and a half months back in Denver, Colorado, I returned for the completion of my full mouth restoration. I had final crowns made, all the occlusion adjustments necessary made, and a new night guard made for my protection. My full restoration has left me with a beautiful smile and renewed self-confidence!

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!

They completed the work quick and efficiently and did a good jobEric, US, 05 07 18

The treatments from Dr. Coto and Dr. Adriana were done with professionalism and I can give them a good recommendation based upon my experience. They were very accommodating with scheduling and speed of service. Above all their pricing was extremely fair and I was happy. I scheduled this appointment to address what I thought would be major problems since I had not gone to the dentist in 26 years. My childhood memories had me terrified of the dentist. Anyway, they did an evaluation and came up with a treatment plan that was far less work than what I expected so I was very pleased. Dr. Coto was very honest in what I needed and told me that I did not need the services that I had told him I needed. They completed the work quick and efficiently and did a good job at making me feel comfortable in the chair.

Root Canals $100 - $300
This treatment is performed by Dr. Esteban Ulate or his wife Dra. Bianca Amaya both highly trained root canal specialist. The root canal therapy is require when a tooth has an infection or is in constant pain, also can be performed to help to recover the height of the tooth for a crown preparation.
Complex Root Canal $100 - $300
Anything is complex when you have the right staff in your office. We have 2 highly trained root canal specialist and it is very unlikely that both of them cant solve a situation in a perfect way. So I really recommend to choose our clinic because 2 brains thinks better than 1.

I couldn't be happierIvan, US, 17 09 19

I'm a retired Law Enforcement Commander and I can tell you that if you are thinking of utilizing Dr Gadea's services, you have made an excellent choice. I researched and researched before selecting Dr Gadea. Frankly, it took me just over a year before I decided to take the risk For me, it was a huge risk. No dental insurance at all and certainly not the money to have the work done that I knew I needed. I corresponded with Dr Gadea and his office coordinator Gaby numerous times before making my decision. I sent emails to former patients and even spoke with some on the phone about the services they received. Each time, Dr Gadea came out on top. So, what did I have done? How about 6 root canals redone, two new surgical root canals, a five tooth bridge, three crowns and my bottom teeth received several bondings and cosmetic improvements. I must add that Dr Hernandez (Endodontist) at the clinic did all of my root canals including the surgical root canals. Dr Gadea and Hernandez are perfectionists, the best Dentists I have ever had and frankly, much better than any I have had in the USA. Dr Gadea also offers a warranty on his work and his word is his bond. I couldn't be happier.
