What are my alternatives to root canal treatment?
When 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
- It is usually less invasive to save a natural tooth than to replace one.
- Saving your natural tooth is better for bone retention.
- Choosing to save your natural tooth is often less costly than a dental implant or bridge.
- 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.
