The aim of Root Canal (or Endodontic) Treatment is to save a tooth that has been badly damaged due decay, disease or injury. Many millions of teeth each year are saved from extraction by having root canal treatment. to Your own tooth is usually stronger and more efficient for biting and chewing, and cleaning and maintenance of a natural tooth are much easier. For this reason, most people prefer to save their tooth from extraction and have root canal treatment.
Root canal treatment is successful in most cases. If you take good care of the treated tooth, it may last for many years and possibly for the rest of your life. Your tooth will not be treated unless the treatment is likely to succeed. Root canal may not be appropriate in some cases and your dentist here will discuss this with you.
