Tooth Removal or Root Canal Therapy: Which Should You Receive?
If the pulp inside your tooth gets infected, you’ll need either a root canal procedure or tooth removal. Dr. Cuevas will explain both options to you and answer all your questions so you can choose the one that makes sense for you. We’ll consider the condition of your tooth and other factors.
Among the factors we’ll help you evaluate:
- Expense – Root canal therapy does cost more than an extraction, but it leaves your tooth intact. That means you won’t need to worry about replacing it. With a tooth replacement, the cost of the two procedures will be similar.
- Recovery – Unlike an extraction, there is no bleeding and minimal discomfort following a root canal. You won’t need to change your oral care routine or your diet during your recovery.
- Effect on Your Oral Health – A root canal procedure doesn’t remove your tooth roots. The roots stimulate your jaw, which helps keep your jaw strong. You won’t experience the loss of bone that occurs after a tooth is removed.
