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.

All in all I felt this clinic is very friendly and professional Dental surgeryDavid, UK, 29 01 23

My lower denture which had been mounted on the bar system had broken and it was decided to make a new denture and mounting system. This proved quite difficult and time-consuming, however throughout this treatment Dr Nick was keeping me informed and mindful of my trepidation. Towards the completion of this treatment Nick spent time over and above what had been allocated to make sure the fit of the denture was perfect, and for that I am very grateful. All in all I felt Forest & Ray are very friendly and professional Dental surgery and in particular Dr Nick.

Root Canals from £381
Root canal treatments are one of the more advanced tools of conservative dentistry, aimed at keeping your tooth functioning for as long as possible. During a root canal treatment procedure, the inside of the tooth is removed, essentially killing the tooth, but reinforcing it, making sure it keeps good and can be in the mouth properly fulfilling its function for as long as a decade, depending on the circumstances. This is a last ditch effort to save the tooth, and is frequently the last procedure used before a tooth extraction becomes inevitable. A root canal treatment requires several trips to the dentist. During the first visit, the inside of the tooth will be removed, and the bacterial infection along with it. The root canals will be enlarged and shaped, and a medicated root filling will be provided in order to kill off the bacterial infection in the tooth. The face will likely swell up, and the process will need to be repeated several times in order to get all of the bacteria out. During subsequent visits, the root filling will be changed, and the tooth drained of pus. The final root filling you will receive will be one that fills up all of the tooth, including the inside. This will result in a strengthened, albeit dead tooth, with no feeling that is not connected to the nervous system.

I will recommend this surgeryAbiola, UK, 19 10 23

The dentist took no time to review me and confirmed what my other dentist diagnosed. He even slashed the amount of the consultation fee in half. That was very good of him, as he doesn't have to. A big thanks to Dr Bilal and also the secretaries, very welcoming. I will recommend this surgery

I really was impressed and grateful to them allIrene, UK, 01 06 22

Because of having to stay at home for the past two years the practice has been very sympathetic with dealing with the appointments I have now. I am elderly and my dentist was so helpful and kind and reassuring when I had an appointment recently. The receptionist too couldn't have been more kind and efficient. I really was impressed and grateful to them all.
