Hello! I'm 22 year old, I have undergone root canal treatment for my two front teeth (upper). I have caps on them now. As I am an army aspirant (officer entry), I always have a doubt about my eligibility. I have read about dental parameters. It is said that there should be no artificial dentures. An I eligible? Please let me know.

Hi. The dental for army and other forces require you to have sound dental health. If you have cavities, they should be filled. Also root canal treated teeth should have proper caps. Loose dentures if any should be converted to fixed teeth either by bridge or implants.
