There are two aspects to this;
1- From patient’s point of view, a good root canal treatment means all to go well and back to normal – being pain-free and able to use and chew with the tooth as usual.
2- From dentist’s point of view, a successful root canal treatment means the patient to be pain-free and the tooth to function normally. This is achieved by:
- Cleaning the canals well and disinfect.
- Fill the canals well, close to the end of them.
- Place a good and stable restoration on the tooth before placing a crown on the tooth for normal use.
