Have you been suggested to pull your problematic tooth? Most people are not aware that root canal treatment is a viable alternative to tooth extraction. Pulling your tooth should always be the last option. A tooth should only be pulled under these circumstances,

Cracked Tooth Or Vertical Fracture

Gum Disease Has Caused The Tooth To Be Loose

Extreme Tooth Decay Or Trauma

Crowded Teeth

Financial Hardship

While the cause of tooth pain may vary, endodontic treatment should be considered before removing your tooth as a means to alleviate tooth pain.

No artificial tooth can match the functionality and aesthetics of your natural tooth. Artificial teeth can limit your ability to chew certain foods necessary to maintaining a balanced diet. Teeth after endodontic treatment can last a lifetime and help keep the natural appearance of your smile. An implant will be most costly in the long run with visits to the dentist for upkeep.Every tooth deserves a second chance. Root canals can be treated and retreated to make your sick tooth a healthy tooth again.

Ask your dentist about a root canal specialist.
