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 88 Reviews I know they would care for you as well as they cared for meJasper, US, 18 Feb 18

I had a root canal on an urgent basis with a follow-up crown. This was done to treat a severe toothache. I also had 2 titanium implants and will return in 4-6 months for crowns. In my estimation, I was able to save enough on the first procedure to pay for airfare and moderate lodgings. I have already encouraged several people to go to this clinic for their dental care. After being sent by 2 different dentist in Texas to a root canal specialist that only comes to my small town twice a week. It was quite literally quicker to see a specialist in Costa Rica. I emailed this clinic through the website and received a call from the lovely and talented Geovanna Acosta within 1 hour. This was on a Thursday and I was able to be seen the following Monday morning. On arrival, I was greeted by the Drs. Monge and Dr. Andrea Gonzales personally. I am a healthcare professional myself and recognized the whole staff's skills and caring attitude. Their English was very good and my Spanish is very bad. I would recommend this clinic without reservation knowing that they would care for you as well as they cared for me.

Costa Rica Dental Services

(866) 260-9546 Calle 1, Avenida 6, San Pedro, Montes de Oca, San José, 2050
Rating from 32 Reviews They are very friendly and have a great serviceMichelle, US, 06 May 18

I was there for my sister who got a wonderful job done. She had 7 root canal treatments, and 18 crowns put on. She now has a gorgeous smile and no pain! I only had my bond in my front tooth re-done, it's okay, but a little rough in places, and a little uneven. I'll survive. All in all, I highly recommend this clinic! They are very friendly and have a great service. However, the front staff has a little bit of a language barrier. The owner speaks and understands English perfectly, but he is doing the work in the back.

Jehovah Rapha Medical Center

(888) 277-1286 Guayabos, Curridabat, Curridabat, 11803
Rating from 31 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.
Single Visit Root Canal $100  -  $300
All our Root Canals will be performed in 1 visit if the condition of the tooth allow it.
