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.

Rating from 18 Reviews I was pleased to have received such quality care and serviceShalom, South Africa, 09 May 17

My recommendation goes without saying and is completely unconditional. The price here is a little steep but if you can bear with that then you should definitely give them a chance. The clinic was very clean and modern looking, the staff were very friendly and I was pleased with the overall presentation of the clinic. The reception area does require a little improvement though.

Root canal,filling, etc Best dentist I've been to in my life! She could repair and save a tooth other dentists wanted to extract; she corrected and fixed unprofessional work done by a previous dentist. She is extremely thorough, professional, highly intelligent and a perfectionist in her work - yet a down-to-earth lady that makes you feel relaxed and safe. A dentist you can trust.

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.

Constantia Dental - Dr Gerhard Koch

087 550 8700 ext: 16338 533 Robert Craib street, Constantia Park, Pretoria, 0010
Rating from 3 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
