How Long Do Root Canal Treated Tooth Last?

The data says root canal treatments are over 95% successful, if case selection is proper, and can last a lifetime. The most important thing to do to make a root canal last as long as possible is get the permanent restoration (fillings or crowns) on the tooth immediately following the root canal and maintain that restoration with impeccable hygiene. A tooth that has had a root canal can still get a cavity, so a person must brush and floss the tooth thoroughly to keep it healthy. Since there is no nerve in the tooth, a person will not feel any symptoms if the tooth gets a cavity. The tooth will only hurt if it gets fractured or gets another abscess around it. The patient should get regular dental check up every 6 monthly to take checkup X-rays from time to time to check the tooth for reinfection or other signs of failure.
