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.

Root canals from €320
At Reva Dental in Kilkenny City our aim is to assist patients in retaining the natural dentition whenever possible and a very useful treatment for retaining badly broken down or symptomatic teeth is root canal treatment. Root canal treatment is a procedure to remove the pulp (nerve) when it is either inflamed, dead or infected. The pulp extends along small canals inside the tooth. The pulp of a tooth can become damaged due to dental decay, trauma, fractures or leaking crowns and fillings. Where the damaged or dead pulp is not removed, it will often become infected and may result in a dental abscess. Root canal treatment is a pain free procedure and while there may be occasional post-operative symptoms from this treatment the vast majority of cases resolve without post-operative pain. Following root treatment it might be necessary to crown a tooth but this would be discussed before any treatment would commence.
Dentist Consultation from €30
Regular check ups and professional cleaning are essential to protect the health of your teeth and gums. At your dental consultation your teeth, gums and mouth will be carefully examined to ensure you are in good oral health. After the examination we will discuss with you any requirements you may have and offer advice on how to protect your teeth. Depending on the condition of your teeth and your previous dental treatments your dentist will usually recommend a dental check up at least once a year. At your check up appointment a full examination will be carried out on the oral soft tissue to ensure that it is healthy. 
Dental Crowns from €500
On occasion a tooth may have significant damage which can not be repaired using a filling. As we recommend retaining the natural tooth where possible a patient can consider the option of crowning a tooth. This involves placing a crown over the damaged tooth. There are many different types of crowns and at Reva Dental in Kilkenny our preference is to recommended either all porcelain crowns or porcelain bonded to white gold crowns. This is consistent with our philosophy of using only the highest quality materials to ensure the best and longest lasting result. All crowns look like natural teeth once complete and are matched to your own dentition. If a tooth has been previously root treated it is often necessary to increase the strength of the tooth by placing a fitting called a ‘post and core’ in the tooth. These posts improve the strength and durability of the restored tooth. It is our policy to use laboratory fabricated white gold posts for the best clinical results. Our dentists will be happy to discuss all of your options with you and provide a written quote before any treatment is carried out.

I felt 100% comfortable on every visitCatherine, Ireland, 03 10 17

I needed work done and wanted my teeth sorted before my upcoming wedding. I have a living fear of dentists hence needing all the work Meave could not have been nicer or made me feel any more at ease. She spoke to me about everything that needed to be done and we worked out a timetable to get it done before the Wedding. I felt 100% comfortable on every visit.

The clinic is really clean and the staff are so professionalMaria, Ireland, 17 01 21

Dr Madden is the ONLY dentist in Carlow town that I would go to. He is an excellent dentist and is the only dentist that could figure out what was causing the pain I had in my jaw. The clinic is really clean and the staff are so professional. They are always so booked up in there but they always try to find an appointment for their patients. They are also the best prices in Carlow town. HIGHLY recommend this Dental Clinic.
