Root canal can be done at any age. If the teeth is firm and will be functionally active after rct than rct is prefered. You have inform dentist about any systemic condition about like bp. Diabetes or any bleeding disorder etc. So that dentist can plan root canal treatment and select suitable local anesthesia.
Yup. Medical conditions like. Bp, diabetes rletc.
If your otherwise healthy rct can easily b done.
Yes. Medications only.
Yes it is absolutely ok for a lady of 55 years of age to go for root canal treatment. Keep oral hygiene healthy by brushing properly.
Surely rct can be any in any group age .there are age factors bt depend on your medical history .you don't have to look for any factors. You should consult a endodontist.
Sure rct can be done at any age. With time there might be some challenges for the dentist which determines the prognosis of the tooth. Things to look for at this age are other medications and general condition of the person as well as replacement vs saving the tooth as to what is the better option.
