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.

4.8 from 42 verified reviews
The staff are friendly and genuinely concerned about their patients' wellbeingBill, Belfast, 13 06 18

Jessica at Cavehill has looked after my teeth since 2014. I have had fillings, crowns, bridges, root canal work and implants. She is highly competent, conscientious, skilful and empathic. I trust her completely to deliver the best treatment possible, to avoid unnecessary interventions and above all to cause minimum pain - she is particularly good at anaesthesia. I have recommended her to my friends. She will discuss the options available in detail and gives excellent value for money. I originally chose Cavehill in 1999 because I live nearby and friends recommended it. It was good even before Marty McAllister took over. Since then it has developed special expertise in implants and preventative hygiene. The staff are friendly and genuinely concerned about their patients' wellbeing. When I have had a dental emergency, they have seen me within 24 hours.

Dental Implants £1200 - £2000
A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root and commonly it is a screw, which is cylinder shaped. Each implant is placed into a socket carefully drilled at the precise location of the intended tooth. The main aim during installation of any implant is to achieve immediate close contact with the surrounding bone. This creates an initial stability, which over time is steadily enhanced by further growth of bone into microscopic roughness on the implant surface.
