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.

I am so pleased with the excellent standard of careAndrew, London, 01 05 16

One of my teeth cracked as a result of grinding and I suffered from a condition called internal resorption. Dr Au managed this problem brilliantly carrying out a root canal treatment under local anaesthetic. Because of the extent of damage caused by the resorption it was also necessary to have a crown to complete the treatment. This was entirely painless and has been successful in avoiding an extraction. I am so pleased with the excellent standard of care I received I am now a regular patient not only with Dr Au but also his hygienist. Essential Dental Care is brilliant! Dr Au and his team are so welcoming and professional. From the moment Liz or Naomi welcome you at reception right through to your consultation and treatment you really feel at ease. The waiting area and surgeries have a lovely air of calm; just what you need when having dental treatment. I would definitely recommend Dr Au for great value private dentistry.

I have had numerous treatments over the years at Slateford Dental Care. Root canal treatment, fillings, and a tooth capped, not only has the experience been a pleasant one but the staff treat you with the utmost of care which makes you relax. Ever stage of your treatment is explained fully, this not only reassures you, but also lets you no that there are no nasty surprises when your treatment has ended. This clinic was recommended to myself and now all my family are registered here. there are clinics locally nearer my home that I could attend but I have chose to stay with this practice and have attended for more than 20 years due to the excellent care and quality of staff. The clinic is very modern and welcoming with a very relaxing atmosphere my personal opinion is that you would be hard pushed to find better dental care anywhere 5 stars from me.

It is important to remember that usually the best tooth is your own tooth. If your tooth is very painful or broken , a root treatment may be what is able to save your tooth having to be extracted. This is a very precise procedure and works well in practices like Comely Park Dental as we have the time and skill to complete the job properly.
