Root canal treatment in Preston
Neglecting your oral care, not brushing your teeth twice a day and not flossing daily can result in bad situations and outcomes which may require your dentist to pull a badly damaged tooth or repair milder attrition with fillings.
In some other cases which also on a more serious damage level require so-called root canal treatments.
When the level of decay reaches the inner section i.e. the roots of your tooth, bacteria can wreak havoc on the inside and cause infections.

As long as the cleaning process has been carried out to a high standard and all the infected, dead or dying pulp bits are removed, once a crown is put over the tooth, chances are you will be able to go on for a good several years before you may encounter with problems again.
Naturally, you should maintain good dental hygiene and be careful with how much biting pressure is exercised on the tooth/crown.
