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.

244A Cong Quynh Street, Pham Ngu Lao Ward, District 1, HCMC, Ho Chi Minh City
Rating from 262 Reviews I can now smile where all my life I was always disguises my mouthPhillip, New Zealand, 29 Apr 17

My teeth were needing a lot of work in fact all 28 teeth. I had one tooth missing ,an old bridge needing replacing and 2 cracked molars. I was amazed that they were going to do all aspects in 4 session to tallying around 12 hours. So in total there were 2 molars needing 4 root canals 2 bridges and 28 crowns. All this was done spectacularly .So if you can stand a little pain for a short time you will not be disappointed. I can now smile where all my life I was always disguises my mouth. I chose this clinic after looking on the internet and narrowing the choices down to 2 in Hanoi and Dr Hungs in Saigon. Read all the reviews like I did, you will be amazed at the results due to a large team of professionals working in tandem to achieve want you want and more. Five star plus

Golden Smile Dental Office

123/19 Nghia Phat Ward 6, Tanbinh District, Ho Chi Minh
Rating from 36 Reviews The doctor is friendly, smart and professionalStephen, Vietnam, 28 Apr 18

My wife is Vietnamese and since I needed a root canal/crown and we would be in Asia, I decided to give Dr. Tuyen a try. I have never had a root canal (#30 molar) before so I didn’t know what to expect. Dr. Tuyen sent a car to my hotel to take me to the clinic. She reassured me and even though my root canal was a tricky one, she was able to get me through the procedure. I came back a few times because I had a swollen nerve that needed special treatment. She did the root canal before I went for a 10 day trip to central Vietnam. When I returned, she filled my root canal and then took impressions. I returned the next day for the crown. The service was fantastic and the price compared to the US wasn’t even close. There are three levels of crown: 3/5/7 million vnd. I went with the middle priced crown. I highly recommend her service to anyone needing dental work:). I am planning to get more work done when I return in December. The experience was great (considering what I was doing)! Dr. Tuyen is friendly, smart and professional.

Platinum Dental Group

127 Nguyễn Cư Trinh, Ho Chi Minh, 700000
Rating from 36 Reviews Their service was very goodDean, Watson, 28 Aug 17

The Platinum Dental Group clinic gave me really good Dentist consultation. I still have to go in for the procedure but so far I am happy. I visited them a while back and thought their consultation was good and I was also happy with the price I was charged. The clinic was not hard to find at all and the price for the consultation was very fair and reasonable. Their service was also very good so I was very happy with them.

My initial treatment went so wellBryan, Vietnam, 08 Jun 17

I finally got brave enough to have some dental issues resolved..years of budget solutions have been replaced with a great set of crowns replacing chipped, patched and crooked front upper front 4 teeth. Talking to Vietnamese friends they assure me that there are cheaper dentists in HCMC. But then they started their horror stories. I didn't shop around..I was impressed with the clinic staff, the comprehensive and modern equipment and cleanliness of the clinic. All treatment options were discussed in perfect English and quotes given in advance. My initial treatment went so well I have since had 3 more sets of crowns and amalgam fillings replaced with composite (white) fillings. The color and 360-degree head x-rays showed up an impending root canal that I knew were on the horizon...so that was dealt with as well. Was it fun? No, it's still a dentist! But I felt safe in good hands and I will be back for more preventative measures.

Elite Dental

57A Tran Quoc Thao, District 3, Ho Chi Minh City, 84
Rating from 59 Reviews The entire process was so easy and comfortableMrs, UK, 20 Apr 16

I had a root canal treatment and a crown fitted. The entire process was so easy and comfortable. Im thrilled with how the treatment went. It was a few hours in the chair but every stage Dr. An and his amazing assistant cared for me. They were very kind and careful not to cause me any pain. I'm so pleased that i made the decision to get my tooth sorted at Elite dental, rather than back in Uk! Excellent value for money. The whole process took about 6 hours, (over 4 appointments) with a total cost of around $340. Even the initial X-ray was only $12! In the UK, this would be at least double the cost. I would recommend to friends and family to have work done here. Highly recommended! Elite was so helpful from the very beginning! I have heard some horror stories of people having work done in Vietnam, but certainly not at this dentist! I did look at another well recommened dentist (one of the top ones!) taken from whatclinic.com and it was more like a hairdressers than a dentist. So there are some no so nice ones out there. Elite is amazing though! I have already recommended this dentist to friends and family! Elite is clean, quaint and very friendly! Looks even a little boutique in terms of the decor. Very comfortable chairs and sterile equipment used. Reception is very accommodating in terms of appointments. Always a smile! 10 out of 10 for Elite!

Rating from 3 Reviews Couldn't be happierCanice, Australia, 21 Mar 17

I hadn't been to a dentist in about 10 years, my teeth were falling out. Now i have a full set of crowns. Couldn't be happier The dentist and his assistants were so caring, very professional and would have to be the first time that I have had a good experience at the dentist. Very modern and laid back surgery.

Really happy with the result.Kathy, Melbourne, 28 Jun 15

I had my teeth cleaned and whitened. The dentist was very thorough. The teeth whitening is quite painful after a while but even so, I am really happy with the result. The staff members are very supportive. I would recommend this clinic to others. Clinic was very neat and clean and great service and quite cheap! I was very happy. The staff were all very caring and friendly and I would recommend this clinic to others staying in Saigon. It was quite close to our hotel as well.

Westcoast International Dental Clinic - Norfolk Mansion

17-19-21 Ly Tu Trong, District 1, Bến Nghé, Ho Chi Minh City, Hồ Chí Minh 700000, Vietnam, Norfolk Mansion, Ho Chi Minh City, 700000
Rating from 65 Reviews First class service at fraction of the price!Vivian, US, 26 Jul 15

We live in California and we do have dental insurance. My son needed 4 wisdom teeth extraction and some fillings and cleaning. Just to pull the 4 teeth, with the insurance cover, we will have to pay more than $2500 in the US plus the cost of fillings and cleaning. To get it done in Vietnam is much cheaper but I don’t want to risk my son health. I was so worried if the dental office in Vietnam is clean enough, the equipment and tools they use on my son is disinfected properly and the important, if the dentist have good knowledge, experience and credential to do the surgery for my son? To pull 4 wisdom teeth at once is very difficult especially 2 of them lie almost horizontally and located near the nerve. The complication could be as serious as permanent nerve damage. I went to several offices in US and Vietnam to see my options. After I met Dr. Andrew Tsang and Dr. Claire Kervyn in this dental office, they took the load off my chest. They were so thorough when they checked my son's teeth. I felt that both doctors are well trained and excellent with their work. They want the very best for my child and his teeth. I'm really grateful. I was right when I trusted them to work on my son. He had an anesthesiologist attended by his side the whole time (in Vietnam, usually the surgery doctor or a nurse will put the patient to sleep to save cost! I know, right?) while Dr. Tsang and his staff worked gently on my son. My son woke up right after the work completed. He did not feel pain at all. He got a bit swollen the 2 days after. He is completely healed now. My son also had 4 fillings with Dr. Claire Kervyn . She is great! Very caring, personable and gentle! The service I had at Westcoast International Dental Clinic was AMAZING! The whole staff was friendly, the dental assistant was awesome, and the dentist explained everything to me and helped me pick my best option, not just one that cost the most. The clinic is CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN! Equipments, tools and technology is modern! I was extremely satisfied, and already have recommended this practice to others! Never hurt to mention that I only had to pay half of the price that I would have in the US.

Rating from 5 Reviews Five-star service and five-star team. Nondas, Vietnam, 29 Jun 15

I lost my teeth several years ago and want to replace them. I looked for a good clinic in Vietnam and I found Tu Xuong Dental. Before I came, I have consulted with the clinic via email many times. The consultant replies to my emails very fast with detailed information. They are very kind and professional. I feel lucky that I was treated by Dr. Lam. He works gently and skilfully. I didn't feel hurt a lot. The assistants are very hardworking and funny. They take care of me as if I'm their friend. They are the best dental clinic I've ever known. Five-star service and five-star team. Thank Tu Xuong Dental team and Dr. Lam very much. I will come back and suggest this clinic to my friends and family.

Lina Dental Clinic

Room 601, Sai Gon Bao Tin Building, 54 Truong Quoc Dung street,, Ward 10, dist. Phu Nhuan, Ho Chi Minh City, 700000
Founded in 2017, with the medium size and moderate scale, we tend to make the differences by the cozy clinic space, with attentive treatment and devotion of the dentist. We started with a dental chair in a luxurious space, and only one dentist. We believe thiswill allow us to spend more time with our customers to listen, discuss, and make the most treatment therapy. Above all, we would have more time on taking care, treating patients professionally and efficiently. You are expats, you wonder if the Vietnamese dentists can understand your concerns in English or other languages? Are you looking for a dentist who can chat, talk to you in the most commonly used languages in the world, including English and Russian? This is very important, when you want to convey your concerns to the dentist and the dentist understands what you need. A further feature that we want to emphasize, our dentist can confidently communicate in three languages: Vietnamese, Russian, and English.

Rating from 1 Review I am very happy with my teeth now.Duyen, Ho Chi Minh, 14 Sep 15

My tooth color is very dark, and I want to have teeth whitening. My friend recommends Lan Anh Dental Clinic for me, and I got twenty ceramic crowns in 130 Ha Huy Tap Street- District 7 with Dr. Duy. He is a specialist about dental crown, and he is a very careful man. I am very happy with my teeth now. My friends say my teeth are a sample for anyone. I know many people have already asked me for your details, and hopefully they will come to get their teeth done. Thank you very much!

4 months ago, I travelled to Vietnam. When I came here, I had toothache due to one decayed tooth. My friend introduced this clinic to me. After treatment, I think this is a good clinic in Ho Chi Minh city with good service and the doctor had high expertise. I'm absolutely satisfied and my toothache is gone. The clinic is professional. I like their service and doctor. The service is very good. When I come here, I'm amazed with the reception. They're very friendly. The doctor had high expertise, so when the treatment was finished, I didn't feel any pain.
