Post Root Canal Options: 4 Possible Forms of Action Post Root Canal and Their Ramifications
Once an endodontist has completed a successful root canal of your tooth, they will place a temporary crown or filling to protect the compromised tooth. It is then up to you to consult a dentist as soon as possible to ensure the longevity of the tooth in question. Temporary crowns or fillings are not meant to last more than several weeks. If you prolong further treatment any longer than that, then the filling or crown will begin to break down, leading to coronal leakage, re-contamination and yet another costly root canal on the same tooth.
