If you’ve ever had a tooth chip or an oral filling chipped out, you understand that life can cause some dental work to be less than permanent. If you need a root canal and are hesitant about how successful it can be, don’t worry: root canal treatments are very successful, and with care, they can last for many years. Here is some additional data about root canal treatment.

Root canals are some of the most successful dental treatments, and they have approximately a 95% success rate. Many pearly whites that are filled during a root canal service last a lifetime, but it is possible for them to be chipped or for them to fall out. To help your root canal filling or crown last for a lifetime, be sure to pass on hard foods such as lollipops and rock candies. To ensure that the filling or crown remains on your tooth correctly, you’ll have to keep your pearly whites safe from decay, so brush your chompers twice a day with a fluoridated toothpaste and floss one time per day to extricate hurtful debris from your teeth. With a small bit of care, your root canal filling will last for a long time, keeping your tooth safe.
