Nowadays, many patients with pulpitis or periodontitis prefer to choose root canal treatment, but they are also more worried that the teeth after root canal treatment do not have a nutrient supply, which will lead to a short lifespan, then how long is the service life of the teeth after root canal treatment?
Experts say that the service life of the teeth after root canal treatment is related to many factors, some service lives are long while others are short, varying from person to person, so it cannot be generalized.
(1) The doctor's skill is very important. After an improperly operated root canal treatment, the teeth will still be painful, or even more serious, and it will be more difficult to perform the root canal treatment again, and if the technique is not good enough, it may even lead to the failure of root canal treatment. Therefore, it is important to choose a hospital with experienced doctors.
(2) It is related to whether the patient wears braces for protection. After root canal treatment, the teeth lose the nerve and become very brittle with no nutrient supply so they need to be protected by braces. Generally, porcelain teeth restoration is required after 3 months. If a person does not wear braces for protection, the service life of the teeth will be relatively shorter.
(3) It is related to patient's daily maintenance. After root canal treatment, regular follow-up visits are required. After porcelain teeth restoration, do not be careless. Pay attention to oral hygiene and avoid biting hard food to damage the porcelain tooth. Therefore, we should also surely pay attention to our daily habits after surgery.
