SAVING YOUR NATURAL TEETH: ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Nothing looks, feels or functions like your natural tooth. Regular brushing and flossing, along with six-month check-ups from your dentist, can help you keep your teeth for a lifetime.
Sometimes your teeth may have infection or disease and will need additional care. When possible, you should always consider treatments to save your teeth.
You may think, why not have a tooth pulled or removed, especially if no one can see it, but you will know your tooth is missing and it will negatively impact your quality of life.
Don’t get a tooth pulled or removed because you think its easier or more cost-effective. Missing teeth can cause other teeth to shift, affect your ability to properly chew and ruin your smile. Tooth extraction often is more discomforting than the infection itself, and replacing an extracted tooth with an artificial one requires additional dental visits that can quickly add up.
