What happens when dentist puts hole in tooth root when doing a root canal,in stead af using hand files,he used power drills.

Report as

It's normal to do dental work with a drill versus a hand file. For delicate work they can use a slow moving drill. Once the root is removed, the area is filled with gutta-percha to seal the tooth. 90% of root canals are a success but 10% of them fail. You may not have a problem and if you do, the dentist can re-treat the tooth or you could end up losing it.
