What are my alternatives to root canal treatment?

root canals | gaithersburg mdWhen we recommend a root canal in our Gaithersburg, MD dental office, it is often the last effort to save a severely infected or traumatized tooth. Typically, patients experience such painful symptoms when a root canal is necessary that they want an immediate resolution. Those choices typically include root canal therapy or extraction.

How Root Canals Boost Oral Health

  1. It is usually less invasive to save a natural tooth than to replace one.
  2. Saving your natural tooth is better for bone retention.
  3. Choosing to save your natural tooth is often less costly than a dental implant or bridge.
  4. A dental crown on top of a root canal tooth will restore the appearance.

Our Gaithersburg, MD dentists, Dr. Neil Daftary and Dr. Robert Zaner, will always present every treatment option available and help patients make a choice that works best for them. They also provide comfortable root canal treatment that feels similar to a standard filling, while adding many years to the life of the tooth.
