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.

Dentalestetic Dra. Melisa Meneses - Dental Clinic in MexicoFeatured

I was delighted with the work. She is an efficient, very talented dentistAlan, Canada, 29 01 20

I attended Dr Meneses clinic in 2017. I am from Vancouver, BC. I needed extensive work to change my bite. That said, I could not afford the rates in BC. I had had a root canal and it had become infected and I was in pain. This was not the first time. I had heard of Dr Meneses and her clinic from a friend that had a good result. I decided to take the plunge and set up an appointment. Dr Meneses did extensive work and a number of crowns as well as repairing the painful root canal. I had gone to Mexico with all of the “normal apprehensions” of going abroad for medical work. I was delighted with the work. She is an efficient, very talented dentist. My pain stemmed from an abscess (sorry) that required more work than anticipated but she took it in stride and did not charge extra beyond her more than reasonable quote. One of the crowns did not fit quite right and she had it redone overnight. She could have just ground it to make it “work” but took the extra time and had me come back and did an excellent job. Not sure it’s relevant but it is an all-women clinic. Her assistant would drive me to and from the clinic from my hotel which is very helpful when undergoing extensive dental work. She is a lady of her word and very professional. I can, and have recommended Dr Meneses without reservation. I shall continue to do so.

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.

It was virtually pain-freeTom, Canada, 15 06 19

I am very happy with the service provided by Dr Liliana and her team. Located in Bucerias, she is a dental implant specialist. They use the world's best, Straumann, titanium implants. During the first consultation, she explained the procedure, answered questions and took an x-ray. Several days later, once the implant arrived, she did a great job of inserting it in place. It was virtually pain-free. I look forward to seeing her again to get a crown placed onto the implant. Of course, this was all done at a significantly lower price than in BC, Canada. Thanks!

They were so kind and caring to do this on their day off and on a SundayDon, US, 11 09 18

Follow up to Implant Review. I had mentioned in a prior post how my procedures went very well. So, three days after receiving my treatment I was eating a meal and the temporary crown became loose. Most likely my fault but nonetheless I luckily had already booked a return flight to Vallarta for the weekend. I contacted Dr Claudio T and told him about my problem. He and Dr Arlette met me at their office on a Sunday afternoon. We decided it was best to change courses and construct multiple mouthguards with a tooth embedded to replace my missing tooth for the duration of the healing process. They worked on these items for over two hours and made perfect fitting mouthguards. They were so kind and caring to do this on their day off and on a Sunday no doubt. To top it off, there was no charge. I cannot imagine this happening in the USA on a Sunday, let alone for no extra charge. They felt it was their responsibility to take care of me as a patient. I cannot express my gratitude fully for all they have done thus far. The experience has been wonderful! Thank you very much, Dr Claudio T and Dr Arlette!
