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.

Everything was greatNemer, UK, 20 12 16

I chose this dentist as I was trying to find a dentist close to where I live when I arrived in the UK. The clinic itself is great, it's a very nice place and I like it a lot. The receptionist was very welcoming. The appointment I had was very good value, I came for an emergency checkup and I was treated and given a course of antibiotics which got rid of the pain. Everything was great.

One of the most patient people I have everJulie, UK, 24 08 17

I started to visit Martin about 2 years ago and would like to share my experience with anyone who has a fear of the dentist. It took me 2 visits with my husband coming along for moral support, to get through the doors of the practice and into the chair. Martin is one of the most patient people I have ever met and made sure I was at ease before even asking me to open my mouth. I needed a considerable amount of work done which was done under anesthetic over a couple of visits. I am happy to say I now go to see my hygienist Jill every 3 months, who is brilliant at her job and is completely aware of my fear. She compliments Martins good work in every sense with the same approach, friendly, smiley, calming and reassuring attitude towards your first and all follow-up visits. I continue to see Martin every 6 months for check ups. I cannot praise this practice enough, please go along and let them try to help you overcome your fear in the same way as they have done for me. I now go alone to my appointments and don`t have sleepless nights before a visit. I knew I needed to go to the dentist so asked my husband to have a look for somewhere and he researched clinics in the area and thought this would fit the bill. All the staff are friendly and smile as you come through the door it has a very calm feel and if like me you are petrified they make sure you don`t wait too long for your appointment.

They look so natural and I love the colour!Janet, UK, 29 01 16

Cosmetic Veneers, I had very dark stained and crooked teeth and I never wanted to show my teeth when I smile. Dr. Au discussed with me the different ways to improve and I decided to have veneers. In the beginning, I was apprehensive about doing something to my front teeth but I am just so delighted. The fees are reasonable and they really look after you. I am so happy with my veneers. They look so natural and I love the colour! It only took a few weeks to get the treatment done and its pretty painless. Now, I can really smile at everyone. Well recommended.
