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.

This was all exceptionally good valueAdele, UK, 16 02 17

My husband had a broken tooth and as we still have 4 weeks left in Penang we decided it was better not to wait. Whilst in the surgery the dentist Dr Brenda Sim also mentioned another cracked tooth. If this was in the UK I'd have thought it was just a way to get more money, but as it happens my husband was aware of it. She offered to fix that and also asked if he wanted his teeth cleaned. As he was due a visit to the hygienist in any case he just said yes. This was all exceptionally good value and the price substantially below what we expected and what we would have paid back home We checked out what dentists were available locally (turns out there's lots) but we decided to look at 2 in Pulau Tikus as it's close to where we're staying. We originally went to Penang Dental but then decided on Wong & Sim. We'd read reviews and to be fair both had very good reviews. But Wong and Sim not only were able to see my husband that day but we were very impressed with the surgery itself - very new and it looked like it had all the very latest equipment. Dr Sim was a very friendly, approachable but professional and clearly highly skilled dentist. She was assisted ably by 2 other members of staff who were equally friendly. Both me and my husband were very glad with our choice, and especially so when contacted afterwards to make sure everything was ok. If I was living here Dr Sim would be my dentist and I'd be going there for the cosmetic treatment I want too. Wish she was my local dentist.
