I am preparing for Armed forces. I have permanent fillings in 8 tooth and RCT in 1 tooth Will this reduce my dental points If yes by how much?

Hello if I'm not mistaken if the fillings are tooth coloured ones (composite) then it doesn't matter and the crowns post the root canal treatment should be a zirconia crown. Rest it all depends on the armed forces selection criteria. This is my personal experience with few of my patients who were going for the same few years back. All the best!

Hi. Yes definitely dental points will get reduced. Please consult a dentist for the same.
No if treatment is done by qualified dentist and material used is a high quality then no problem.
Yes it can.
