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.

He welcomed me with a warm smileNozipho, South Africa, 17 07 20

I had 6 crowns and a root canal treatment done which was an experience I’ve dreaded but also needed because I didn’t like how my teeth looked but today I’m happy with the end result, I have to say, Dr Ismail(The senior Dr) has to be one of the best Dental Dr’s I’ve come across, not only because of his experience and skills but how he interacts with his patients and makes you feel calm even with the drilling sound in the background. He listens to what your expectations are for your teeth and makes adjustments accordingly whilst paying attention to finer details of your teeth structure. I had quite a long journey with my treatment but every time, he welcomed me with a warm smile. I would absolutely recommend the practice, the prices are reasonable, the practice is clean and the Dr’s, as well as the staff, are friendly. Definitely value for money.

Extremely happy with the service, and efficiencyPhil, South Africa, 13 10 22

TMJ assessment- found issues with Jaw alignment. First step is some exercises to try, to determine if this helps and if it is an answer to long term issues I have been experiencing with earache, ear 'fullness', extreme tinnitus, neck pain. Also discovered a previous tooth restoration had been rotting from the inside, so scheduled an immediate follow up to open it clean it and restore it. Extremely happy with the service, and efficiency and full explanations of what was going on, and what to do. Thanks team!!!

The procedure was completely painlessWayne, South Africa, 23 01 17

Emergency Wisdom Tooth Extraction I was rolling around on the floor at 11:00 pm in excruciating pain and finally asked my wife to try make an after hours appointment. We met Dr Natha and his assistant, Luqmaan, at 1:30 am at the Kromboom Dental Centre. It turns out that I had to have one of my wisdom teeth extracted. The procedure was completely painless. I did not even need to take painkillers the next day. Dr Natha and his assistant were very friendly and also very professional. If you are not a fan of needles, blood, and anything generally "doctor" related, I highly recommend that you consider visiting Dr Natha.

The work done was outstanding, fast and to the best qualitySimon, Germany, 04 04 22

I went to Paradise Road Dental practice for a professional teeth cleaning. The staff was super friendly and on it. They accommodated my request for a different time slot without any complications. I was warmly welcomed to the practice and had the most pleasant experience during the tooth cleaning. The dentist talked to me through all the steps and was very gentle and careful. She was also quite funny and gave me a really good feeling. The work done was outstanding, fast and to the best quality. My teeth were quite stained when I came in and looked white and shiny when I left. the dentist also gave me very good recommendations as to which products to use int he future and how to improve my routine. I highly recommend.
