My experience with Dr Kalan and associates was truly amazing, I’ve been with dentist on main for a few years now and not once did I ever have a bad/unpleasant experience. All staff members are friendly and always doing their best to keep patients happy. The safety and hygiene measures are a 10/10, even before the covid-19. Many thanks dentist on main.

My Son was admitted with a very rare autoimmune illness in April this year. The care he was given was superb Prof Dheda, Prof Louw and their team of specialists covered every possibility , diagnosed efficiently and treated effectively. There was time taken to explain everything. The Hospital Matron made allowances for me to spend as much as possible time with my son and also allowed for frequent visits from close family. Mr Daniel Mathew the Hospital General manager is very approachable and interested . The staff was friendly and helpful. Basically every one from reception through admin to ICU was friendly and helpful. I Highly recommend this hospital

What you need to know about Root Canal in South Africa

Root Canal Procedure

A root canal, also called endodontics, is a dental procedure to treat infection at the center of a tooth. It can repair or save a tooth that is infected or badly decayed instead of removing it. The term “root canal” comes from the act of cleaning the canal inside the tooth’s root.

What does a Root Canal Procedure Involve?

With dental advances and the help of local anesthetics, a root canal is not painful. During the procedure, your dentist removes the pulp and the nerve, then the bacteria are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned. The final step is sealing the inside of the tooth with a filling or crown.

How Long Should I Stay in South Africa for a Root Canal Procedure?

A root canal is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you can leave the medical facility straight after the procedure. However, you need to stay in South Africa for around 2 to 7 days, especially if your tooth has several roots that require more than 1 appointment.

MyMediTravel currently lists 13 facilities in South Africa offering Root Canal procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Root Canal can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on your medical profile and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

What's the Recovery Time for Root Canal Procedures in South Africa?

Your tooth may feel sensitive for a few days after a root canal. Over-the-counter painkillers will help you with any discomfort. You can go back to work and return to your normal routine the next day or as soon as you arrive in your home country.

What sort of Aftercare is Required for Root Canal Procedures in South Africa?

After a root canal, you should avoid biting on hard foods for a few days. You also need to keep your teeth clean, limit sugary food, and give up smoking to avoid further root canal treatment.

What's the Success Rate of Root Canal Procedures in South Africa?

The root canal procedure is almost always successful, with over 95% success rate. Many teeth fixed with this procedure can last for 10 years to a lifetime. The side effect of a root canal is tooth sensitivity, but this will subside within a few days. The risks include the loss of the tooth or abscess development on the tooth, but this is very rare.

Are there Alternatives to Root Canal Procedures in South Africa?

If you are apprehensive about a root canal, your alternatives include tooth extraction and replacing it with a dental implant, bridge, or partial denture to restore your chewing function and prevent adjacent teeth from shifting.

What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure

An infected or a badly decayed tooth is painful, and they can interfere with your life. After a root canal procedure, you will no longer feel any pain and you can enjoy your life again.

Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 28/11/2020.
