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 22 Reviews I would highly recommendcatherine, Ireland, 20 Feb 15

root canal I am over the moon with the treatment I recieved at the clinic. My dentist was Suzanne and i would highly recommend her! I haven't liked going to the dentist for years but I'd happily go back to her. Second appointment booked to finish a root canal and no pain at all.

Root canals  
Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure. Most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits to your dentist. At the first appointment, the infected pulp is removed. Any abscesses, which may be present, can also be drained at this time. The root canal is then cleaned and shaped ready for the filling. A temporary filling is put in and the tooth is left to settle. The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled.

Rating from 41 Reviews The staff are friendly and genuinely concerned about their patients' wellbeingBill, Belfast, 13 Jun 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.

Rating from 1 Review I am very happy with the experience and the quality of the service I received.Giedrius, London, 05 Jul 16

I was really conscious about the look of my teeth, so I requested an appointment to get braces put on. I was presented with multiple options and thoroughly informed about each one before making a final decision. Both Dr. Stefan and Dr. Milisha were extremely helpful and talked me through the process. Overall, I am very happy with the experience and the quality of the service I received. I could not recommend it enough. I chose this clinic merely by accident when I did my research online on a particular set of braces. I was greeted with a smile and shown into the clinic. Doctors were very pleasant and welcoming from the very beginning which created a great atmosphere. They answered all of my questions and shared some of the relevant experiences. Overall, I am very happy with my choice and would recommend it for everyone. Ten out of ten.

Rating from 1 Review Absolutely delighted with this dentist, he handled my emergency perfectlyChristopher, UK, 21 Sep 18

Another dentist aborted a root canal and sent me away. A massive pain quickly developed so I contacted this surgery and so glad that I did. I am not a good patient but they gave me an emergency appointment, put me at my ease and extracted the molar (when Gary should have been having his lunch break). Absolutely delighted with this dentist, he handled my emergency perfectly. Nothing was too much trouble and the result excellent. I strongly recommend Gary Wu and his surgery.

Rating from 14 Reviews Friendly, welcoming and professional, you know you’re in good handsDiane, UK, 22 Oct 18

Unfortunately, in spite of surgery to save it, I lost the tooth and subsequently the one next to it. I have now had two implants which have really changed my life, I really hated wearing a denture. It does take time and I won’t say it’s painless, but that is the injections! The procedure wasn’t painful, some discomfort is all. I see the hygienist every three months and will see Imran in a year. Well worth it all and not as expensive as I anticipated. I was recommended to NDS two years ago by my dentist as I had a loose front tooth. I saw Imran who was very professional and kind. I have found everyone working there to be excellent. From the receptionists to the hygienists, to Imran and his nurses. Friendly, welcoming and professional, you know you’re in good hands.
