Root Canal Treatment is a prime dental procedure and is done in almost all dental clinics that have proficient dentists; however it cannot be done in many cases due to several complications. Here are some conditions, where the root canal therapy is not advisable:
- Root canal treatment is not advisable during first and third trimester of pregnancy.
- It cannot be done if the patient has an uncontrolled level of blood sugar i.e., uncontrolled diabetes.
- If the patient has recently (within 3 months) had cardiac surgery, it is not advisable to have a root canal treatment.
- Root canal treatment can also not be done during the cases of vertical fracture and deep root caries due to poor prognosis.
- It is not possible to perform root canal therapy if the tooth has been cut off during an accident. It is called extensive ground fracture.
- If the patient is uncooperative, the process can’t be done. The patient has to cooperate during the whole process of root canal treatment, both physically and mentally.
- If the patient is suffering from Down syndrome, Parkinsonism or any mental illness, use of general anaesthesia is considered.
Thus above given are the conditions when root canal treatment cannot be done.
