Yes, a tooth treated with a root canal procedure at Dr Pierre Dentistry can still get cavities despite the procedure making it dead and not susceptible to feeling pain. To ensure the longevity of the treated tooth, it is essential to maintain excellent oral hygiene, including:
Root canal procedures are designed to save teeth that are at risk of being extracted due to infection or pain from sensitivity to food and hot/cold temperatures.
If a tooth is lost, it can be replaced with a tooth implant or a bridge, but the process is more complex and expensive than maintaining a healthy, functional tooth. Therefore, maintaining a regular dental hygiene routine is important to prevent tooth loss and discolouration.
