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.

Dental Centre Century City

Rating from 11 Reviews Overall service was great, will recommend it to anyone thinking of using or goingThumeka, South Africa, 23 Jan 17

I took my daughter for an assessment as she wants to put braces - my original appointment was for 11:00, I was not going to make it because my daughter had to start at school 1st, I asked if we can be seen at 13:00, I was accommodated. On the day of the appointment my daughter finished earlier than I'd anticipated, I called the dentist to reschedule for an earlier appointment, they agreed to see us at 11:30 am. To me that was impressive, the place is easy to find, security at the gate was also nice. We went in, got a warm welcome from the dentist's assistant, she gave us forms to fill in after that we waited for the doctor to finish with the other patient. Our turn came we went in, got a warm welcome from the doctor/dentist a tall handsome guy with a warm heart, my daughter was a bit nervous/scared but he assured her that it won't hurt. He did everything he wanted to do and allowed my 9yr old son to watch while he was doing my daughter's mouth x-rays. My son was so impressed and is now thinking of becoming a dentist. Overall service was great, will recommend it to anyone thinking of using or going to DCCC. I'm hoping that our next visit will be exciting as well. My daughter's got other sessions to go to before putting the braces. Thanks, TT

I came to the clinic as they were able to offer me the best price for the treatment I was looking for. The clinic itself is beautiful, professional, clean and comfortable. I absolutely got good value from my treatment here, there were additional add ons to the prices, but I was made fully aware of all of these and was happy to pay. I've booked a follow up appointment in the new year. Everything was perfectly explained, you can trust this clinic.

Constantia Dental - Dr Gerhard Koch

Rating from 4 Reviews Treatment was excellent valuePeter, South Africa, 20 Jan 16

I had tooth ache and underwent a fairly simple extraction. Dr Koch was friendly, professional and certainly put me at my ease. His rooms are modern and "non-claustrophobic"and his dental nurse/assistant is a gem. The treatment was excellent value and included a thorough examination, advice on the merits and demerits of another root canal and the possibility of a small removable dental plate which I am still considering. X-rays explained on big screen. Top Class

Rating from 5 Reviews It is definitely worth the trips to PE! Highly recommend it - you will have NO regretsTanya, South Africa, 19 Sep 16

New set of full dentures. Had 4 sets made in Grahamstown within 2 years due to poor quality and inefficiency. I have been blown away by the professionalism, technology used, logistics considered and friendliness. There is a genuine sense of thorough knowledge and it has impressed me beyond words. It is definitely worth the trips to PE! Highly recommend it - you will have NO regrets.

What an amazing and refreshing experienceJohan, South Africa, 28 Dec 17

A tooth broke out of my plate. I phoned and was told to come in immediately. When I arrived, the reception staff had already attempted to source a technician to assist. Without fuss, imprints were taken and I was on my way to Bay dental labs. Two hours later I had a sparkling smile again. Thanks also go to Donovan at Bay for being willing to sacrifice his holiday time. What an amazing and refreshing experience. Friendly and pro-active staff. They kept me in the loop throughout.
