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.

Previdente Clinica Dentaria Unipessoal

308 803 547 Edifício Labisa, Bloco 3, Loja C , Ferreiras, Albufeira, 8200559
Rating from 1 Review Both the doctor and the dental assistant delivered a warm, friendly and caring patient experienceNigel, UK, 07 May 18

The Clinic's staff were very professional and helpful throughout. Fabio Tavares, the Endodontic Specialist, was extremely impressive - with regard to my treatment he definitely went that extra mile. Both Fabio and the dental assistant delivered a very warm, friendly and caring patient experience. From my personal experience, I would not hesitate to recommend an endodontic patient to Fabio Tavares.

Root canals from 150 €
Treatment consists of removing the tooth pulp (living or dead structure that contains, among other elements, nerves and blood vessels). It should be employed whenever there is an infection in the root and bone lesion visible in the X-ray. The bone inflammation may remain for several years without causing pain and harming health because our body’s defence mechanism is able to neutralise the toxins released by the bacteria. However, when our body’s resistance is weakened, these micro-organisms can cause acute inflammation in the bone, accompanied by pain and oedema (swelling) and penetration of the bacteria into the bloodstream (bacteraemia)

Cris Piessens Clinic

Rua dos Caliços, Cerro Malpique, Albufeira, 8200102
Rating from 5 Reviews I felt no pain whatsoever. My overall experience was outstandingAngie, UK, 19 Sep 18

I travelled from England to Portugal to have a root canal done. Because the dentist made me feel so comfortable I decided to have a hygienist session, as well as teeth whitening. We completed everything over three days and I felt no pain whatsoever. My overall experience was outstanding. This clinic is superior to any of the places I’ve visited in England. Clinic looked very professional. All the staff were nice and could speak English well. I just liked the atmosphere of the place. Follow up visits were not possible because I went home after the treatment. However, they encouraged me to call if I had any questions or wanted to discuss further treatments. It was unlike any of the usual dentist visits I’ve had. Very happy with the experience.

Sorriso Matinal

Rua Francisco Sá Carneiro, Lote D, Loja B, Lagoa, 8400
Rating from 5 Reviews I can honestly say the service I received was brilliantLynn, Portugal, 07 Aug 17

I broke a tooth off of my small denture whilst on holiday and I emailed Sorriso Martinal late at night. I received an appointment the next day and the problem was resolved within an hour of my visit to their practice. I can honestly say the service I received was brilliant and was far better than anything I could have hoped for. I now feel able to enjoy the rest of my holiday and can't thank them enough for the prompt attention to my dilemma.
