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.

Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab

(888) 491-7315 Curridabat: Diagonal Esquina Noreste Plaza Jose Maria Zeledon, Curridabat
Rating from 91 Reviews Everyone working on every aspect of my care made me feel at ease the whole timeChet, Costa Rica, 30 May 18

I got a (painless!) Root canal and crown, buildup and post, scaling and planing, and zoom whitening here in may 2018. I cannot recommend this team enough. My teeth came out perfect! Their office has everything my dentist at home (NC USA) has and more. Everything was clean and sterilized there were absolutely no worries. One of the best experiences I have ever had with a dentist and I am a person who has a lot of anxiety about the dentist. I showed up to my appointment ridiculously early (like before they were even open) and Geovanna actually called the team of specialists and they came in early for me. Everyone working on every aspect of my care made me feel at ease the whole time. The lovely miss Geovanna helped me through everything including getting an Uber to the office. I took a leap of faith and it definitely paid off. My dentist in the US wanted over $3500 for the work had done and he is one of the least expensive dentists in my relatively large city. The price for all that work at Costa Rica Dental Clinic: $1200.00! I got my work done and an amazing vacation for half the price of seeing my dentist at home. If you are on the fence or unsure I would say to you: Do it! You will not regret it. I am more than satisfied with my results. In fact, I am bringing my wife back for an implant in a couple of months.

Rating from 2 Reviews Hygienically clean and up to the professional standardsTariq, Costa Rica, 27 Jul 18

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.

Costa Rica Dental Services

(866) 260-9546 Calle 1, Avenida 6, San Pedro, Montes de Oca, San José, 2050
Rating from 35 Reviews I’ve found my courage and my dentistJody, BOCA RATON, 30 Apr 18

I grind my teeth at night when I’m sleeping. This has ruined my teeth, given me headaches and damaged the Dental work I’ve already had. If that’s not enough I’ve had a disastrous encounter with an endodontist that resulted in 2 surgeries, a root canal, 2 crowns and finally the loss of the tooth. The pain was so traumatic that I’m afraid of the dentist. Thank goodness my moment of courage occurred at Costa Rica Dental Services. After careful consideration, we (yes, I was included) determined I needed 2 root canals redone (because 2 different US dentists failed to notice roots with more than 1 nerve.) A broken tooth needed a root canal (that was the reason for the courage) and 3 implants - 1 from the endodontist nightmare and 2 from root canals that couldn’t be completed without agony. (I’m wondering how many other teeth I had with 2 nerves per root.) Before I left I had a largely failed filling replaced and small worn places on my front teeth filled so I could smile. Up to this point, any exceptional dentist could have done the work I had. I have never met an exceptional dentist before but I’m sure they exist somewhere other than this office. In addition to bonding (my word not the dentists), my front teeth to fill the worn off enamel Dr. Gadea built up a tooth that was pushed behind the other front tooth and blended the effect so my crooked teeth look straight. Not straighter - straight! He also used that same bonding to make a rough line on the bottom of my teeth smooth and even. When I gasped and stared at him unable to speak from shock at my suddenly improved appearance he said,”This is what I love to do. When I get started I just have to make the teeth look better.” I have to go back to have the crowns when the implants have healed but I’ve found my courage and my dentist. I would dream of going anywhere else. In a scale of 1 to 10, Costa Rica Dental Services is a 20.

Jehovah Rapha Medical Center

(888) 277-1286 Guayabos, Curridabat, Curridabat, 11803
Rating from 34 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!

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 $200  -  $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.

Root canals from $250
Root canals save teeth that would otherwise have to be extracted. Many patients who need root canal therapy arrive in pain, treatment relieves that pain, they don't hurt. The causes of the need of this treatment are: The pulp has been irritated beyond natural healing and is causing pain. The pulp has died and is causing inflammation or swelling. There is an abscess at the end of the root.

Rubinstein Dental - Curridabat

700 mts sur de McDonald´s Plaza del Sol, Curridabat
Rating from 3 Reviews Absolutely recommended.Elena, Germany, 23 May 15

I went to Dr. Rubinstein because I had stronger tooth pain for a longer time. He suggested what to do and that really helped. The price was good and fair. He did what I needed and not too much. The clinic has very modern equipment and it is very clean and professional. The assistants are very friendly. Dr. Rubinstein is working really well. He explains a lot and replies to all the questions I had. I have been at other dentists in Costa Rica but I felt best with him. He offered some opportunities and suggested what to do. The work was done really quickly. Because I am travelling, Dr. Rubinstein offered to have my consultation at this time. And he did that. He replied to some questions I had and I am really happy about that. I can absolutely recommend him as a dentist.
