Dental Implant for Failing Root Canal Treatments
A tooth usually requires root canal when the person experiences a constant toothache, and the crown becomes extremely sensitive to heat or cold, followed by painful “twinging” sensation. During this stage, the patient must visit a qualified and experienced dental surgeon to get the tooth properly checked. After an X-ray, your dentist may discover that one of your teeth is deteriorating from the inside out. While the common course of action is getting a root canal, it may not permanently solve the issue and pain may recur if the root canal fails.
Non-surgical root canal treatment (NSRCT) is a common practice carried out to kill pain-causing nerves without losing the natural tooth. While NSRCT has shown a high success rate, the procedure does not always yield the desired results. This is among the leading reasons of root canal failure and often requires the same painful procedure on the same tooth over and over.
Repeated root canal treatments are known to cause unwanted dental complications and often lead to challenging situations even for some of the most experienced dental surgeons. In such cases, it is highly recommended to have the affected tooth extracted and replaced with a dental implant.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Before technology had made significant progress in dentistry, failing root canals were
diagnosed by identifying the abscess in the affected tooth and treated by drilling a hole through
the bone itself. This not only resulted in additional damage to the area but also caused in a high
degree of pain during the procedure. Since dental implants have a 99% success rate and their
synthetic compounds make them almost 8 times more durable than natural teeth, they make
the perfect dental restoration solution for failing root canals.
