Can You Save A Tooth From Extraction?
At Advanced Dental Care, we often see patients who are told by one office or another that a tooth must be extracted even though it can be saved. While some dentists may go right for an extraction, our team always tries to save a tooth with a root canal or other restorative treatment rather than opt for extraction. You might ask why this occurs, and why some dentists suggest different treatments than others – why does this happen?
Just within the past couple of weeks, we had two patients come into our office who were in this exact same scenario. A previous dental office had recommended extraction multiple teeth. When our team took a look, we were able to alleviate the pain and discomfort these patients were experiencing with a root canal, during which these patients reported feeling virtually no pain or discomfort. However, why does this happen, exactly?
Each office has their own set of protocols and procedures. While some offices recommend extraction early, other offices may try to save the tooth. At Advanced Dental Care, our team always tries to save teeth rather than going right for extraction.
