    Default How long is a Root Canal treated tooth supposed to last?

    The factors that determine the longevity of a root canal treated tooth are numerous

    To list a few,

    The extend of structural damage
    Heavy loss of tooth structure severely undermines efforts to save it

    Your bite load
    If the tooth that has been root treated receives heavy forces from chewing, this may lead to fracture and failure, as root treated teeth become brittle over time

    Variations in anatomy
    Extremely curved canals, accessory canals, extra canals and calcified canals can be a significant challenge to restore

    Operator experience and technique
    Root canal treatment inexperienced and qualified hands undoubtedly has better long-term outcomes

    The go-to person is an endodontist, a specialist in root canal treatment.

    Gum health
    Gums that are unhealthy can be a source of infection

    Your oral hygiene practices
    Good and consistent oral hygiene practices will go a long way in preserving your dentition

    Crowning
    This is mandatory, especially in teeth that are at the back of the mouth, like pre molars and molars, root canal treated teeth last significantly longer if they have a crown

    A root canal treated tooth can last a very long time if all of the factors that govern a successful outcome are taken care of.

    My parents had root canal, but never had any idea about it. Thanks for these helpful info you shared.
