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.

I experienced no pain at all during and after the proceduresKaren, US, 21 12 18

Dr Karen using both x-rays and palpating skills quickly determined that I needed a root canal in the area that I was experiencing pain. I also had a chip in a bridge that I needed to replace. There was a floating root that needed to be extracted as well. I decided to get extensive work done, ending up with 13 crowns, an Implant and a root canal. I am very happy with the results. I experienced no pain at all during and after the procedures. For the root canal and the implant surgery, professional experts were brought into the clinic along with their assistants. My bottom teeth were very crooked and ground down, and Dr Karen managed to fit crowns expertly so that they have a straight appearance and they look beautiful. Jose picked me up several times at my resort and took me to the office which made it much easier for me to find since I wasn't familiar with the area. Thanks to all of you at the clinic I have a new smile and problems taken care of. The Dental Office was very quick to respond and fit me into their schedule. I was impressed with the quiet professionalism of the clinic. I was experiencing some pain in my teeth and decided to get the work done during my vacation in Mexico. I looked up several dentists’ office and chose a few to contact based on reviews here.

I highly recommend this office and will be back for treatmentTom, Mexico, 19 08 19

I had a cleaning and a full mouth exam. What a wonderful experience. Very professional and pleasant staff. Honestly, I thought this would be a good starting point to get to know them. Everything they found was thoroughly explained. Costs and timing were reviewed with me with no pressure at all. I got an email by day end with a treatment plan, x-ray copies and costs per tooth. Costs came out to be 1/3 to 1/4 of the US prices I was quoted. Cleaning was painless and very professional. I highly recommend this office and will be back for treatment. I just did not have enough time on this trip to complete any more treatment.

Please check him out and you won't be disappointed.Cheryl, Zwolle, LA, 05 06 16

I had my teeth cleaned ($50 USD) and it was one of the best and easiest I have ever had - the dental hygienist was great. I also had an old crown removed and a new all porcelain crown put in place ($550 USD) - the hardest part of the whole procedure was getting the old crown off. I also had a 4-tooth partial made ($700 USD) and my husband and I both had night guards made ($100 each USD). For a total of $1500 USD we were so very pleased - at my local dentist in the US, the crown alone would have been $1500 for all porcelain. At one point Dr. Hernandez thought I might need a root canal so he set up the appointment and drove me & my husband to meet with the specialist. As luck would have it, it turned out I did not need a root canal. Dr. Hernandez also is so very gentle with his work - he gives the best shot I've ever had from a dentist - I never even felt it. I first spoke to Dr. Hernandez over the phone and just had an overall good feeling after speaking with him about my procedures. My overall experience with the International Dental Center and Dr. Hernandez was 100% wonderful. The clinic is very clean and he has state of the art equipment. Also, the prices he charges are unheard of, especially in the states. If you are in need of a really great dentist you won't go wrong by going to Dr. Hernandez. I will go back to see him on our next trip to get my teeth whitened. Please check him out and you won't be disappointed.

If you are missing a tooth but you are in good general health, with healthy gums and a jawbone that can support an implant, implant treatment may be an option for you. (However, keep in mind that in many cases, third molars called "wisdom teeth" do not require replacement.)Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.Health is more a factor than is your age. For example, chronic illnesses, such as diabetes or leukemia, may interfere with healing after surgery.And if you use tobacco, you are at greater risk of experiencing gum disease, which can weaken the bone and tissues needed to support the implant.Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by your dentist will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.

My smile is sparkling and beautifulBarbara, Mexico, 29 03 19

The Best dentist in Bucerias. I am Canadian from Vancouver and had a bad headache. I found him from the internet and was open, took me right immediately. I was to have a couple of implants, but found some Dentists are very expensive expecting only tourists, who are being charged so so much more because you are a tourist. Dr Felipe has been the most professional dentist I have ever had in my life. My uncle was my dentist most of my life until he retired. I have had crowns and implants. My have been going to him now since December. My boyfriend has had many new crowns as well. We have become friends, I have met his lovely wife and son. I highly recommend Dr Felipe Lopez Rojas. My smile is sparkling and beautiful.
