What are the alternatives to root canal treatment or retreatment?

Often, the only available alternative to root canal treatment or retreatment is extraction of the tooth and replacement with a dental implant or bridge. Both of these procedures are more complex and expensive than root canal treatment and will result in the loss of your natural tooth. Root canal treatment is a much less invasive procedure than extraction, and your recovery time will be shorter and more comfortable. Call our office with any questions or concerns about root canal treatment.
