Restoration After Endodontic Treatment
Once your root canal and any follow-up appointments are completed, you’ll need to return to your dentist for the final restoration to protect the tooth from cracks, fracture, and leakage. It’s important to make this appointment as soon as your endodontist completes work on your tooth. A properly treated and restored tooth can last as long as your natural teeth. Not following through the final restoration is the leading cause of loss of the tooth after root canal treatment.
Take care of your teeth by brushing, flossing, regular checkups and cleanings at your dentist. Preventive maintenance care will help you to keep your teeth for a lifetime. The team of your dentist and dental hygienists will provide important maintenance care for you.
