Root canal treatment is the most preferred option for preserving your natural tooth when faced with conditions such as tooth decay, leading to pain, fractures, or cracks in the tooth. Sometimes, a simple filling cannot restore your tooth's health when the decay has reached to the pulp. At our clinic, we recommend undergoing a root canal treatment to alleviate dental pain and safeguard your tooth from further damage.
You might consider having the tooth extracted, especially when it's a back tooth, instead of opting for endodontic treatment. However, it's important to remember that nothing can look, feel, and function quite like your natural teeth. Therefore, it's crucial to consider all treatment options that can help preserve your natural teeth.
Root canal treatment (RCT) is a straightforward and the only alternative procedure to relieve dental pain and prevent the need for extraction. RCT is recommended in cases of severe decay, inflammation of the pulp, fractures, or cracks in the tooth, which may not always be visible. In some cases, traumatic injuries can affect the pulp. Signs that indicate the need for RCT include spontaneous pain, extreme sensitivity to hot or cold foods, swelling in the gums or face, chronic bad breath, and discoloration of the tooth.
Root canal treatment is both affordable and pain-free at our clinic, where we use the latest rotary endodontic technology to reduce clinical procedure time.
RCT is the last and only Rx option to relieve pain and save the tooth frm extraction which is advised in conditions like severe pain for hot or cold foods, swelling,malodor, tooth discoloration, tooth fracture ect.
