smile, oralhealth, dentist, teeth,Root canal work is a common procedure performed on adult teeth. New technologies and anaesthetics help to ensure that a root canal procedure is as comfortable as possible. The treatment is usually very effective but on a rare occasion, it may fail.

Reasons for failure:

– An error by the dentist

– Erosion of the tooth or sealant over time

– An additional canal in the tooth not spotted by the dentist

– An obstruction that caused incomplete cleaning of the canal

– Vertical cracks in the tooth

– Leakage in the restoration

– Poor dental hygiene

People who experience severe continuous pain should report it to the endodontist for further evaluation.
