Reasons a Root Canal Would Fail

Posted on 1/20/2018 by Dr Jonathan Ford
Root Canal Ford Dental Group CA 92647-4484When you go through a root canal, you need to make sure that the tooth that is treated is in the best shape possible. This means that you need to take care of it.

There are many reasons that a root canal can fail and if you are not careful about the way you take care of your mouth, or even if the dentist is unable to get everything out when they do the procedure, these can both cause the root canal to fail.

Reasons for a Failed Root Canal

There are many reasons for a root canal to fail and not taking care of the tooth is just one of the reasons. The person must practice good oral hygiene in order to take care of the teeth in the mouth and also have a healthier smile.

Sometimes the dentist does not take all of the root out when it should be taken out, which can cause the person to have an infected root. When an infection occurs, this tooth will then need to be removed to stop the spread of the infection.

When a tooth is not properly capped after a root canal this can cause the tooth to break down and might even result in the loss of the tooth after a root canal. The crown that is placed over the tooth helps to hold the walls of the tooth together. This is a big thing to consider since you want to ensure that the tooth’s integrity is put together.

If you are thinking about having a root canal done, speak with us here. We are more than happy to schedule you in for a root canal procedure and ensure that we can save the tooth that is in question. We want the best for your tooth. Call us today to learn more.
