Reasons to Consider a Root Canal Instead of An Extraction
Posted on 4/23/2018 by ARCHPOINT
Sometimes people want to go through a different procedure all together instead of having their tooth completely removed.
When this is the case, it is important to think about why a root canal might be the best procedure to go through instead of having the tooth extracted. You want to make sure that this is done in the care of a professional oral surgeon for the best outcome.
Tooth Extraction Considerations
Tooth extractions can cause a lot of dangers to the person, such as having to keep the area clean and healed for some time, so that the blood clot does not come unloaded and cause a further problem for the person.
Additionally, the tooth extraction should be something completely thought about since dry socket is also a common issue. Infections happen when the area of the extraction is not cleaned out and sanitized.
There are many rules that need to be followed after an extraction. Not only that, but having your own teeth is always ideal. You want to make sure that you do not have to worry about having to replace your natural tooth with a fake one.
When the root canal is done, the person just has to wait for the numbness to wear off before they are able to eat or drink. Other than that, the person should have no pain in the area or adverse reactions to having the root canal done. This means that less complications can arise with a root canal over having a tooth extraction done entirely.
A root canal should be done through an endodontist to ensure that the best possible treatment is given. Our office can provide you with more information and an appointment that might be needed to make sure that you're able to keep your teeth.
