Final Restoration for Endodontically Treated Tooth

Final Restoration for Endodontically Treated Tooth

Question : I just had an RCT done on my central incisor. When are they going to put a jacket crown on my tooh?

Dentures PH Answer : You are expected to have the final restoration done within a month after the completion of root canal treatment. Endodontic treatment does not end at the filling of the canal but after the final restoration with either composite resin or crown.

Coronal

As much of the coronal tooth structure should be conserved as possible.

FAQ about Root Canal Therapy

Question : Why Would a Tooth Needs Endodontic Treatment?
Answer : Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp is already on it irrerversible state, meaning even restoring the tooth with a composite the disease process in the pulp would continue and eventually the pulp will die and lead to an abscess formation.

Q : Signs & Symptoms Commonly Experienced by Patients Requiring Endodontic Needs.
A : The most common symptoms would start from sensitivity to cold that lingers then finally also sensitive to hot drinks or food. On chronic stage the patient would see a pimple-like structure on the gum area (sinus tract) of the affected tooth.

Q : Is a Root Canal Treatment a Painful Procedure?
A : Root canal treatment can be done without pain with proper use of anesthetics. However, occasionally there are some teeth considered as “HOT TOOTH” and anesthesia is difficult. In this case a devitalizer is placed on the cavity and the patient is asked to come back to continue the treatment.

Dental Filling

Dental Filling

A dental filling (dental restoration) may last many years before it needs to be replaced.

However there are a number of reasons that fillings may need to be replaced. Constant stress from chewing, grinding and clenching teeth may eventually cause a filling to chip, crack, wear down or fall out. A filling may also need to be replaced if the surrounding tooth structure becomes decayed.

Fillings that are worn or have pulled away from the teeth leave gaps at the filling edges, which provide an entry point for decay causing bacteria. Bacteria are present in a thin film called plaque that forms on teeth and gums. If the seal between the tooth and the filling breaks down, food particles and bacteria can work their way between the worn filling and the tooth and cannot be easily be removed with a toothbrush or other means.
