Saving Your Natural Teeth
Nothing is as good as your natural tooth!
Saving your natural tooth should always be your first choice when dental care is needed. Nothing, not even the most advanced bridges and implants, can truly replace your natural tooth.
- If your dentist recommends extracting your tooth, ask if an endodontist can help save it with a root canal. This endodontic treatment removes the injured pulp (soft inner tissue) of your tooth and fills and seals the space.
- Your tooth is then restored and can function just like any other tooth for the rest of your life, ensuring comfortable chewing and a natural appearance.
- Endodontists can often save the most severely injured teeth.
Do everything possible to save your teeth before considering extraction. Nothing is as good as your natural tooth!
