At Dr.Ehab’s Dental Clinic,Dubai we always hear patients says ” One of my friends did a root canal and then after some time he pulled out his tooth. Does really Root canal Treatment works? Although Root canal procedure can have some percentage of failure but it still can be successful and it can save your tooth for life.
This article will discuss the possibilities of having a successful root canal treatment and reasons why it is fails.
The Main reason why Root Canal Treatment fails is a bacteria. If our mouths were sterile there would be no decay or infection, and damaged teeth could, in ways, repair themselves. So although we can attribute nearly all root canal failure to the presence of bacteria, I will discuss five common reasons why root canals fail, and why at least four of them are mostly preventable.
Although initial root canal treatment should have a success rate between 85% and 97%, depending on the circumstance, about 30% of my work as an Endodontist consists of re-doing a failing root canal that was done by someone else. Root canals often fail for the following five reasons:
- Missed canals.
- Incompletely treated canals – short treatment due to ledges, complex anatomy, lack of experience, or lack of attention to quality.
- Remaining tissue.
- Bacterial post-treatment leakage.
Our Endodontist Dr.Saif Nagm always recommend to place the Crown on top of Root Canal Treated tooth, He advice every patient to do this in order to safe the tooth from any crack.
The best way the patient can prevent the failure of Root Canal is to carefully choose the Endodontist who works with the professional Root Canal Material and the latest state of the art technology Dental Microscope.
At Dr.Ehab’s Dental Clinic, Dubai we Only use Microscope while performing root canal treatment which gives us the high success rate in treating our Root Canal Patient.
