Risks Of Waiting On Dental Treatment

If you have a deep filling or a crown and are experiencing pain or sensitivity, you might need a root canal.
Please contact us immediately, and in a free dental consultation (which includes X-rays), we can offer an assessment.
In addition, if you’ve started a root canal with another dentist, but never saw your root canal to completion, give us a call today.
A root canal could help save a tooth that, in years past, may have been extracted.
Root canals can be required when:
•decay moves from the tooth to the pulp (root)
•the nerve of the tooth becomes infected
•the tooth becomes abscessed
•there’s recent trauma to the tooth (usually cracked, broken or chipped)
•there’s past trauma to the tooth
•the tooth is dying (due to aging or other factors)
Is it worth saving a tooth with root canal therapy?
In the vast majority of cases, yes. Whenever we can, we do our best to prevent teeth extractions. Countless studies have shown that a healthy smile, with all of your natural teeth, leads to better overall health.
And the cost of a root canal (to save a tooth) is far less than the cost of a dental implant or a bridge.
If you should have further questions about root canals, or to schedule a free dental consultation, please call or send an e-mail to the dental office near you:
