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.

I'm more confident with my smileLihle, South Africa, 19 06 20

For years I've struggled with confidence because of my teeth. I was missing one front tooth while the others were misaligned. I contacted Dr Chodree last year May and had my first consultation with her in June. I had to wear Braces (retainers) in July for alignment, but in October she was already implanting my crowns - I have four of them on my upper front teeth. Thanks to Dr. Chodree, I'm more confident with my smile. The process was very reasonable as well.

I always had the feeling that she had a master plan for putting a smile back on my faceQuinten, South Africa, 05 12 19

From dentistry to artistry. Rita Nel is a genius. What she has been able to achieve with my teeth in four days is awesome, and took a lot of work. I always had the feeling that she had a master plan for putting a smile back on my face. I always felt that she was in complete control and that she knew exactly what the end result must be. No dilly-dallying and uncertainty, scratching and fiddling around and hoping for the best. I experienced a true professional on top of her game. Worth every penny. Bravo! Highly recommended.

I’m very happy with the results. It’s value for moneyAnonymous, South Africa, 24 07 18

Sandton City Dentist was the first place that came up in my internet search, so I just decided to use them for my fillings. The doctor filled two teeth for me. I’m very happy with the results. It’s value for money. Another plus: the practice is close to home. I thought it was a very well maintained, nice clinic. I was quoted at the appointment and there was no need for a follow-up afterwards. I enjoyed my visit and will be sure to recommend them to others.
