Why a Root Canal is the First Choice for a Lasting Smile

If your family dentist tells you that you see a specialist in endodontics in Englewood, he’s really recommending that you get a root canal. Endodontics is a dental specialty that focuses on the tooth’s interior. If damage or infection occurs within a tooth, a root canal is often required to remove these dental dangers. Since a root canal can soothe and save a tooth for a lifetime, see what makes a difference in its overall success.

The Effectiveness of Root Canals – While root canals are quite common, certain considerations play a role in their 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 quality of the root canal procedure, which can be performed by your family dentist or a specialist in endodontics in Englewood.
  2. The infection had not yet spread to the bone, which showed that early treatment is the best bet for success.
  3. The rate of the restoration, with teeth receiving crowns and permanent fillings soon after the root canal treatment having the greatest results.

The Benefits of Root Canals Research shows that 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.

The Effects of Age on Root Canals – 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 Englewood.
