Dentist 's  Response

The rct treated tooth can be reinfected if we do not care for it.
After RCT, go for permanent restoration or crown.
in case of any problem immediately go to your dentist for consultation.
If you take care of the tooth it will not trouble you and last for years.

an RCT done by a credible dentist or an endodontist is likely to have near total success rate, a good dentist removes all the decay after performing the RCT and do a crown filling and a crowning, however it doesnt prevent a further new decay in future if you are not going to maintain a good oral hygeine. Do visit your dentist every 6 months for a general check up and follow up.
