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.

Explained every single detail before treatmentMok, Malaysia, 15 07 15

Had one tooth extracted, very professionally done. No pain at all. Dr Chew patiently explained every single detail of the procedure before treatment was executed. Dr Chew was also very patient to explain some questions I asked him on general oral care while waiting for the anaesthetics to take effect. Overall, the location of the clinic is superb-parking is free at All Seasons during the day (on weekdays) and we parked the car right below the clinic. The clinic assistant was also very friendly and of course Dr Chew is young and good looking. More importantly, I was impressed with his professionalism of running the clinic and the reasonable fee the clinic charges. I made an appointment for scaling the following week right after the treatment. Highly recommended to visit this clinic. Maybe the clinic should play soft background music to spruce up the atmosphere.

We could not be happier with the expert care & treatmentshirley, Australia, 16 03 20

My husband and I have just had major dental work (me 6 crowns, my husband 12 crowns of front upper & lower teeth needed due to teeth grinding). The work was done by Dr Lim Han Chuin. We could not be happier with the expert care & treatment from Dr Lim, her beautiful gentle assistants and the crown makers. Thank you so much to Dr Lim and her team. And the other big bonus, this treatment would have cost 3 times as much done here in Australia.

She explains before she proceeds with the treatment, No pain at allNuurhidayah, Malaysia, 05 12 17

Dr. Christine was a very kind person. She explains before she proceeds with the treatment. No pain at all. After treatment, her assistant called to follow up my condition. This is the good service and practices after treatment I had. I did my root canal treatment. Price is reasonable - X-ray + 4x treatments. No lump sum payment, we can pay for each appointment. Clinic beside the road, easy access, easy parking. The clinic was a comfort and equipped with advanced machines and technologies.
