Why save your tooth?
Saving a natural tooth with root canal therapy offers many advantages. As compared to alternative options, it is often the easiest, least expensive, and requires the least amount of time for dental appointments. Other benefits include maintaining a natural appearance, efficient chewing, normal biting sensation, and protecting your other teeth from excessive wear. Missing teeth can cause your teeth to shift and can also negatively affect your ability to chew.
With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal therapy can last as long as other natural teeth and often for a lifetime.
