    Is It danger to smoking between root canal treatments?


    A root canal treatment is designed to remove damaged or infected tissue from the root canals of the tooth. It can help save a tooth that might otherwise be at risk of extraction, and it can preserve your oral health. Smoking can interfere with healthy blood flow, and it can increase the risk of dry mouth, which can trigger oral infections, gum disease, cavities and other common dental health problems. If you are a candidate for a root canal treatment, it is also recommend that you quit smoking before the procedure and while the treatment site heals.

    Smoking can inhibit healing and increase the risk for periodontal disease and complications after dental treatments. Quitting smoking can reduce or eliminate your risk and improve your overall health. It may benefit from smoking cessation programs, and medications are available to support your healthy lifestyle efforts.

    Normally smoking it is said its not a problem after a root canal and crown preparation. Smoking interferes with healing after extraction or gum surgery.
