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.

During my hygienist appointment I received all the information I required and I knew what the entire treatment process was. I'm very satisfied with my visit to this clinic.

Longbeach Dental

087 550 9122 7 Carlton Close, Sun Valley, Noordhoek, 80000
Rating from 1 Review All her reassurances let me know I’d made the right decisionJohn, South Africa, 29 Aug 18

I made an appointment for dentures at Long Beach. I’m about halfway through the process now and it’ll be another four months before everything’s complete. I’m not sure if I got a fair price for the dentures. I didn’t shop around before choosing this clinic. I went with them because it was conveniently located. There was considerable pain involved because we extracted 10 teeth at once. I was given pain medication and had follow-up visits afterwards. My dentist explained everything in detail. As we went along, she told me what she was doing and also why she was doing it. All her reassurances let me know I’d made the right decision. Overall, I was treated quite well. Everyone is so friendly. The clinic is also quite nice.

Dental Save - Save your Smile

unit 3 First floor Horizan Bay, Blouberg Road, Cape Town
Rating from 3 Reviews There were no additional costs. I think they’re very goodZee, South Africa, 16 Jul 18

I wanted adult braces and opted for this clinic. Not only were they close to home, but the staff and doctors were so friendly and managed to help me at the very first appointment. It’s only been two months since we fitted the braces, but already I’m seeing results. We’re currently doing the alignment and I’m noticing a big difference in my smile. Witnessing this change is simply amazing. Prior to the appointment, they quoted me a price and this is exactly what I ended up paying. There were no additional costs. I think they’re very good, but I can’t give them the full 5/5 as I still have 22 months to go before I see the final outcome.
