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.

Rating from 29 Reviews The Root Canal, Teeth Cleaning and Crown procedures were pain freeDevin, La Honda, 09 Sep 16

I had 3 root canals, and crowns (molars), and a cleaning, that needed to be done and I couldn't afford to have the work done in the United States, even at low income discount rates. It was scary having work done in a foreign country but everything turned out great! It was only $2000 and comparable services around here were at around $6000. It was great, all of the work was done in a week, Dr. Gadea was very professional, and the procedure was pain free and done with modern equipment. I couldn't be happier with the quality of work. It was quick, painless and I really feel like my crowns are VERY high quality. I will be back for all of my future dental work, you can count on that! If you're wondering if it's worth the risk to travel to a new country to get a break on dental services it totally is.

Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab

(888) 491-7315 Curridabat: Diagonal Esquina Noreste Plaza Jose Maria Zeledon, Curridabat
Rating from 80 Reviews Thank you all at Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab!!!Shirlean, US, 20 Oct 16

I was a patient at Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab in September 2016. My treatment was amazing. The staff is very friend and also very knowledgeable. They had just returned from a week's training the day before I arrived. I had a whole smile makeover which included 2 root canals, an implant and removal of two top wisdom teeth. Everything possible was done to make me comfortable and calm during my visits. I left with a wonderful smile that feels more natural every day. The only surprise I had was not realizing it would take a couple of weeks to get adjusted to everything and I should have realized that myself. I would highly recommend (and have) this clinic to all my friends! I truly believe that having Francisco the lab tech there in the clinic to work hand in hand with the dentists made all of the difference in the way my final crowns fit and looked. Also, they worked on me until 8:00 at night on the day I arrived with the implantologist coming in at night to do my implant. I had absolutely NO issues and more importantly NO pain whatsoever! Even the temporary denture they put in during my stay was comfortable and looked good enough to go out in public. They got everything done so that I could enjoy 5 days off while they crafted my crowns which they placed the day before I left. All in all this was an amazing experience which continues to get better as I settle in and become more comfortable daily with my new smile. Thank you all at Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab!!!

Dr. Andres Furchtgott Barrios

Clínica San Angel, Guadalpue
Rating from 1 Review I can't recommend anyone better.Eric, Costa Rica, 12 Jan 15

Caps, crowns, root canals. Dr. Furchtgott is fantastic, painless, quick and extremely reasonable. If you are a tourist, this is the guy you want. One dentist here, Dr. Suzanna Roja, took six appointments to do a root canal and cap my tooth; Dr. Furchtgott took two for the same thing. He's in Guadalupe which is a bit inconvenient to the airport but well worth the extra taxi fare to get there. I can't recommend anyone better, I live here and have used him for about twelve years. I'd never go to anyone else. Eric Robinson

Costa Rica Dental Team

(888) 848-7639 ext: 69773 2, Provincia de San José, Curridabat, 11801
Rating from 3 Reviews Everything healed perfectlyErin, US, 17 May 12

I recently had 11 root canals and crown lengthening surgery on three quadrants of my mouth from the professionals at Costa Rica Dental Team (returning in 2 months for 28 crowns). The professionals here make even the most dreaded dental work seem like a breeze. The day after having surgery on 75% of my mouth I was able to take an all day excursion to the Arenal hot springs! I did not have any pain or discomfort and everything healed perfectly. I will be saving $40k on my dental work and have had time to squeeze in some beautiful sites of Costa Rica. Their technology is as good, or better, than my dentist in the U.S. And of course the price savings is more than worth the trip. The most important thing for me is that everyone at this dental practice treats you like family and actually considered my preferences when working up a treatment plan.
