WHAT DEFINES A GOOD ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

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.
