A Root Canal is the First Choice for Teeth That Last

dca-blog_root-canal-3d-model

A root canal is part of a dental specialty called endodontics and it allows you to protect and preserve your natural teeth for a lifetime. Endodontics focuses on the interior of the tooth, including its pulp, nerves, and blood vessels. If these interior sections get infected or inflamed, a root canal is required to remove the damaged areas and restore the tooth to total health. Find out which factors affect the success of a root canal

Type of Treatment

A root canal is rather common, but certain considerations play a role in its results. According to an evidence-based study of teeth having their first root canal, these circumstances mattered to its longevity and success:

  • The infection had not yet spread to the bone, which showed that early treatment is the best bet for success.
  • The speed of tooth restoration after the root canal, which emphasized the importance of a getting permanent filling or crown as soon as possible.
  • The quality of the root canal procedure, which can be performed by your family dentist or a specialist in endodontics in Bradenton.

Place of the Problem

The location of the root canal determines its results. Since the front teeth have single roots that are very simple to reach, these teeth can be treated with great ease and effectiveness. But the back teeth with multiple roots are much harder to access, so these root canals are more complex and often more involved.

Aspects of Age

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 Bradenton.

Rewards 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.
