Root Canal Filling

7 Aralık 2020by dentislife

Root canal procedures primarily address the problem with a tooth which is infected or has a decaying pulp that requires urgent drilling and cleaning from inside. The integrity of your tooth is either lost or severely damaged after an invasive therapy like a root canal and you will need teeth reinforcement. A dental crown after a root canal provides reinforcement to your tooth and restores its health and functionality. Although adding a dental crown is not necessary after every root canal procedure all root canal procedures need tooth reinforcement. Read more to learn if you require one.

Is a Dental Crown Necessary After a Root Canal?

Studies reveal that a dental crown following a root canal improves the chance of tooth survival. One study recorded a six times higher survival rate for teeth with dental crowns.Another stady  states that only about one-third of the molars endure without a crown for five years.

  • Restore a Fragile ToothA tooth can turn more fragile after the root canal treatment due to tooth-drilling, cavity or infection. A durable dental crown can protect this tooth and make it long-lasting while preventing any damage.
  • Protect a Tooth from SensitivityFollowing root canal therapy, some of the existing nerves may develop extra sensitivity to heat and cold which can be very uncomfortable. This is another reason why a dental crown is needed to protect a tooth after the root canal procedure.
  • Retain a Natural-Looking ColorSome teeth change color after a root canal treatment. If a tooth appears grayed or deeply stained, a dental crown can offer a more natural appearance and whiter shade to match the remaining teeth.
  • Prevent InfectionsThe affected tooth surface is at a higher risk of infection and contamination post a root canal therapy. A dental crown will protect the tooth by sealing it off from dangerous leakage to avoid recontamination so that you do not need to undergo a tooth extraction.
  • Provide a Back-Up SecurityA tooth that previously had a filling due to extensive decay and got chipped or fractured before the root canal treatment, or if it’s in a high traffic area should necessarily be restored with a dental crown.
