Dear lybrate-user, RCT is one of the last options a demtist will suggest to save the tooth. Like other treatments we take it also has a life. Usually if done well and cap placed over it the teeth will sarve you well for many years. There might arise a need for replacement of cap but not before 8-9 years. But once the process is done and the tooth remains problem free for long time, the treatment should be considered value for money spent. Nothing in medical science comes with a lifetime guarentee.
No root canal treatment is absolutely safe.
