Endodontic (Root Canal) Treatment

When a tooth nerve dies or is diseased, there are two ways to solve the problem. One is extraction of the tooth. If the tooth has good bone support, however, your doctor may recommend an alternative: endodontic treatment, or root canal therapy, to save the tooth.

Sometimes your doctor may elect to refer you to an endodontic specialist for treatment. Saving a tooth is often the best and least expensive treatment to preserve not only the tooth but also to preserve the integrity and position of neighboring teeth.

After endodontic treatment is complete, your doctor may recommend covering the newly treated tooth with a crown to preserve it for years of trouble- free service.
