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.

The treatment was the perfect repair while in a pinch on holidayDorina, UK, 03 09 23

The treatment was the perfect repair while in a pinch on holiday. It was a Friday evening and I knew that if I didn't find something then, I would be stuck over the weekend in pain.

The staff are absolutely excellent in their treatment and careEd, Portugal, 21 02 20

Fantastic experience. The staff are absolutely excellent in their treatment and care. Dr. John McKean was wonderful in his explanation and treatment of my emergency. He saw me immediately with my dental emergency and a number of times afterwards due to the oddity of my case. Cannot say enough about this clinic doctors and staff. And, since we winter here, I will definitely have them do my routine care as well. Thanks, guys.

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)

The team are all lovely and fluent in EnglishPatricia, Ireland, 19 12 22

I had first consultation a week ago and the team are all lovely and fluent in English also which was a great help as I explained my phobia of dentists Had examination and xray done and a plan was made for follow up appointment for treatment under sedation with gas. Unfortunately for everyone on the day the sedation system just wouldn't work.The doctor tried for almost an hour to get it working but to no avail. They were left with no choice but to call a technician and to send me home. The dentist, nurses, doctor and receptionist were all so apologetic I felt bad for them as they had moved some appointments to fit me in for a 3-hour session. I will return when the system is fixed, hopefully soon. But with Christmas looming and holidays to be taken it may be next year.
