Root Canal Consultations
A root canal consultation is often necessary when infection or inflammation develops in the pulp tissue of the tooth. Sometimes teeth can be diseased or damaged and cannot be saved, even with a root canal procedure. In these cases, it may be time for an extraction coupled with an implant.
Dental implants offer an alternative to root canal treatments, allowing patients to replace their damaged teeth altogether with a simple extraction of their original tooth and placement of a dental implant.
Dental implants last for decades and often long outlive the lifespan of a root canal and crown. Dental implants look and function like natural teeth and may the perfect solution. During your consultation, the doctor will go over your options and determine the right path for you.
