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?

Outstanding serviceAmy, UK, 14 08 20

I contacted this clinic in sheer desperation with my 8-year-old having issues with another clinic and a failed inhalation sedation attempt. Dr Riaz was so quick to get back to me and offer different options for my daughter to have her tooth out. Within a week we had an appointment and as my daughter is extremely anxious we opted for IV sedation. My daughter as an 8-year-old was very destressed but this did not faze Dr Riaz and his team. They spent time calming my daughter and put the TV on about her and gave her gas to calm her enough for her IV. Within 5 minutes of being sedated Dr Riaz had updated us that the tooth was out and all went well. It brought tears to my eyes over how much stress and worry they had removed from my shoulders and I truly can not thank Dr Riaz and his team enough. Outstanding service.

I felt extremely safe and their consideration, kindness and skill were excellentBarbara, UK, 04 12 20

5-star treatment from Kinneri and her team. I have been a contented patient at Vogue for many years but was worried about making an appointment during Covid when I broke a tooth. I shouldn't have worried. I was given an appointment within days and was talked through their covid care, which is a very high level. I had to have a crown fitted which took 3 lengthy appointments. I felt extremely safe and their consideration, kindness and skill were excellent. A big thanks to Kinneri her dental assistants, Ann on reception, Kelly practice manager and rest of staff.
