A Root Canal Can Prevent Tooth Loss
Modern techniques have made root canal therapy much more gentle than in the past. Additionally, sedation is available to help you relax during treatment.
Prevent More Serious Issues
As an infection worsens, it can compromise your tooth, leading to tooth loss. It can also spread, affecting the surrounding tissues. A root canal can stop the spread of infection.
Once an infection progresses past the point of treatment, your tooth will need to be removed to protect your oral health. However, a root canal can typically prevent the need for extraction.
