Root canal therapy is the most effective treatment for all types of dental pain and is internationally recognized as the most effective treatment. Root canal therapy saves the patient’s tooth. However, root canal treatment is technically demanding, difficult and complicated to perform, and the visit takes a long time. Each patient is different and the root canal of the tooth varies greatly. These factors make the root canal procedure more difficult and therefore root canal treatment is somewhat dangerous.
The dangers of root canal treatment can be seen in the informed consent form for the procedure.
Registered anesthetic sequelae
During the treatment, the dentist will register local anesthesia in order to relieve the pain. Some patients have allergic reactions to anesthetics. Allergic reactions can take someone’s life. In some patients, after root canal treatment, the effect of the anesthetic drug lasts for several days and the patient’s gums do not feel the stimulation.
The dentist will use a variety of instruments to perform the treatment. During root canal treatment, the dentist fills the root canal with material. Since the tooth is buried in the jawbone, the surgeon can only fill it according to the anatomical shape of the tooth before the procedure. If the dentist is inexperienced and does not operate properly. The instruments will then pierce the gums and cause inflammation.
Poor treatment effect
During the treatment, if the patient does not communicate with the doctor, remove the medication or filling material in the root canal without permission. Some patients do not follow up on time, and the treatment effect cannot be guaranteed. In severe cases, the patient’s tooth may need to be extracted.
Root canal treatment is not really a major risk. Although there will be bleeding during the treatment. However, the amount of bleeding is negligible. Therefore, root canal treatment is safe.
