Failed Root Canal
One of the best ways to save a tooth is a root
canal treatment but a huge number of root canal candidates fear a
failed root canal scenario.
Successful root canal treatments usually lasts for
a very long time, in fact, they don't wear out so we're talking about
prospective lifetime tooth remedy.
So what are the things that can lead to a root
The root canal system in one's tooth is not as
simple as how it sounds. Root canals sometimes aren't consistent, it is
very possible that there could be a hidden canal where your dentist
thought there's only one.
For example, lower incisors, usually only have one
root canal but they can have two so if your dentist is careless, he
might end up closing your tooth without knowing that there's still
another root canal on that same tooth that needs to be fixed.
Same thing, molars which are expected to have only
three root canals may have four with some people.
If the hidden root canal is not found, it will
trigger an infection which results to abscess and a failed root canal.
There are times were your tooth is already
infected due to tooth decay and too much damage that it's impossible to
save it even with a root canal. Depending on your dentists' evaluation
of the possibilities of saving your tooth, he may sometimes recommend
root canal, which is the last measure of saving a well-battered tooth.
With a tooth-wide infection, the chances of a successful root canal
treatment is near zero. This may also end up in a failed root canal
you experience pain after a root canal?
Not all root canal pain is caused by a failed root
canal but even if it's a failed root canal, retreatment may solve it.
If your dentist is not an edondontist, he may send you to an
edondontist who's equipped with specialist equipments and techniques to
deal a failed root canal.
If you're worried that having a root canal
treatment on your tooth may fail, failed root canal only fail about 5%
of the time. Root canal has 95% success rate and it still remain as one
of the best ways of saving a dying tooth.
