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.

I will definitely recommend themAndrea, South Africa, 07 11 16

I went for a second opinion on getting my wisdom teeth removed. 2 impacted and 2 regular. Check-in was very friendly, I didn't wait longer than the appointment scheduled time and the dentist were also very friendly. They explained in an easy to follow manner and gave me all the options I had to move forward along with booklets to read at home. I will definitely recommend them.

I will never ever go anywhere else again for my dentist work and would recommendKath, South Africa, 28 02 21

I have always heard so many dentist horror stories and was always so grateful I never really needed to see a dentist. The very occasional few times I went for routine check-ups I was underwhelmed and really didn’t enjoy a single moment x so last year when I needed a whole lot of really challenging work done I was so anxious and nervous x then someone suggested I go to Dr Blazquez! Well, that was the best experience in my dental history - well actually ever in seeing any medical practitioner! I liken it to going for a facial x I have had root canal treatment, fixing of cracked and broken teeth etc and each and every experience has been amazing. I will never ever go anywhere else again for my dentist work and would recommend Dr Blazquez to everyone of any age.

All her reassurances let me know I’d made the right decisionJohn, South Africa, 29 08 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.
