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.

It gives me so much confidence and I can finally smile like a beautiful butterflyWiebke, Germany, 27 09 22

I highly recommend Dr. Jehova Rafa without reservation! I have been at dentists around the world due to an accident I had when I was 11 years old. I had a lot of operations until I was 28 years old, but there were still some things to do on my lower jaw. I was looking for a relatively pain-free and affordable treatment. A dentist in Germany suggested implanting gum from my palate to give my lower jaw more stability. Others from the U.S suggested implants or bridges. All this means destroying additional teeth that are basically still healthy. Dr. Jehova Rafa on the other hand suggested veneers and he corrected four teeth within a week. I can't tell you enough how happy that makes me. Finally, a dentist who's not just seeing a "money-making-machine" in me, but has my best interests in mind! I love the result! It gives me so much confidence and I can finally smile like a beautiful butterfly! If you're looking for a trustworthy dentist, Dr. Jehova Rafa is the way to go!

I am very happy with the resultsWhitney, Bahamas, 28 03 21

I had great treatment. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. Had everything done within the time frame I set. They care about you and your smile and do everything in their power to make it the best possible one, even if that means sending 2 crowns back to the lab because they weren't fitting right. I had 4 crowns and 2 nerve treatments done and I am very happy with the results. Definitely recommend them.

I'm no longer in constant pain and my self-confidence is backJacob, US, 21 09 21

If you are seeking incredible dental work at an extremely affordable price, this is the place for you! I was in a tremendous amount of pain, extremely anxious, and struggling to make my travel plans work when I began the process with Geovanna at Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab. Not only was she incredibly professional, but she was also very understanding of the numerous obstacles that I had. After three cancelled appointments, I was finally able to travel from Cleveland, OH for my procedure. I was greeted at the airport by a friend of the clinic and taken straight to the office. From the moment that I arrived at the office, I was treated with compassion. The team answered every question that I had prior to beginning the work. I can't express enough how welcoming, patient, and compassionate this entire team was. I had originally planned to have them all on 4 procedures done but was informed that I was a great candidate for all on 6. The team worked with me to make it a possibility with my finances as well. Geovanna made sure that I was doing well throughout my stay in Costa Rica. When I received my temporary teeth I was moved to tears. My teeth look amazing! I'm no longer in constant pain and my self-confidence is back. I am so excited to return for my permanent teeth once the healing process is complete. After years of dental problems, high anxiety, and never feeling comfortable at a dentist, I have finally found the perfect solution. It is without a doubt Costa Rica Dental Lab Clinic!

I smile all the time and feel very confidentDonna, Costa Rica, 24 08 17

I have needed dental implants in my upper row of teeth. Besides this, I have needed inlays and minor but important issues too. Dr. Oscar Vargas did wonders and now I smile all the time and feel very confident my teeth won't get spit. From the moment I inquired about information to attending the clinic. All their personnel is very attentive. Every appointment I had was on the schedule. My time in Costa Rica would allow me to. Great value for they exceeded my expectations.
