Root Canal Therapy: Positive Consequences of Saving Teeth from Extraction

Not too long ago, when a patient would have a relatively serious problem with his (or her) tooth such as decay or infection in it, there was no other possible recourse then but to remove the said tooth through extraction. However, this kind of dental action is generally observed to be detrimental than helpful to the patient.

While extraction may eventually remove the discomfort and pain of an infected or decaying tooth, however, permanently pulling out a tooth may make you appear having a hollowed out face or even one that is older than your actual age. A lost tooth may also induce damage to the neighboring healthy teeth and gums. After all, the oral structure is really designed to be a complete set of healthy teeth.

Based in Jefferson Valley, NY, the Family Dental Group offers an alternative to tooth extraction called root canal therapy. That is, a dental procedure that can save a damaged tooth by eliminating infection from the pulp of a tooth. The dental experts at Family Dental have a streamlined process for the removal of infected components, cleaning and decontamination of the hollowed out pulp chamber, reshaping the cavity and filling them with inert materials to restore strength and structure to the tooth receiving a root canal.

The dental surgeon who will be assigned to a given patient will closely look into his oral health condition as well medical history to determine his suitability with the procedure. The dentist will see to it that the dental goal is achieved without sacrificing the patient’s safety and comfort.
