The Endurance and Assurance of a Root Canal

dca-blog_root-canal-3d-model

You may never have heard of endodontics, but you surely know about root canals. Endodontics is a dental specialty that’s dedicated to the health of the interior of the tooth. A root canal is an endodontics treatment that is used to remove infections and damage from deep inside the tooth. Since a root canal can root out many major dental problems, see which factors matter in a root canal’s success.

Are Root Canals Effective?

A root canal is rather common, but certain considerations play a role in its results. Each tooth is different, with their site and specifics affecting the course of treatment. Since the front teeth have single roots are very simple to reach, these teeth can be treated with great ease and effectiveness. But the back teeth have multiple roots and are much harder to access, so these root canals are more complex and often more involved.

According to an evidence-based study of teeth having their first root canal, these three circumstances mattered to its longevity and success:

  1. The infection had not yet spread to the bone, which showed that early treatment is the best bet for success.
  2. The rate of the restoration, with teeth receiving crowns and permanent fillings soon after the root canal treatment having the greatest results.
  3. The quality of the root canal procedure, which can be performed by your family dentist or a specialist in endodontics in GEOID.

Does Age Affect Root Canal Treatment?

Age affects everything and teeth are no exception. Studies show a direct correlation between age and need for root canal treatment. This was attributed to teeth getting brittle over time, which increased their chance of fracture. This demonstrates the importance of maintaining the health of your teeth, as well as protecting them after a root canal by having them covered with crowns by your family dentist or a specialist in endodontics in Clearwater.

What are the Benefits of a Root Canal?

According to research, root canal treatment is a more enduring option than having damaged teeth replaced by bridgework. While bridgework can fail over the years, a tooth restored by a root canal can last for a lifetime.
