Had root canal done on last tooth on top left. It is my third trot canal in my lifetime. First with this dentist. The root canal went well but I noticed he did not isolate the tooth with a rubber dam like my other endontist did. After reading online that the tooth should be isolated I am wondering if this new dentist put me at risk by not putting one in place. Just wondering if this is a red flag. Thank you

  • Ideally to get the best results the tooth in which root canal is being done should be isolated otherwise the chances of infection in the root canal treated tooth is there. You can discuss this with your dentist.for more info on the tcchnique of root canal treatment you can visit the following loink.....http://www.identalhub.com/article_how-root-canal-treatment-is-done-298.aspx
