Root canal or dental implant?

It is always best to try and save a tooth where possible, however, if root canal treatment (RTC) is unlikely to rescue a severely infected tooth, an extraction and a dental implant may be the better option.

Key takeaways:

– RCT is cheaper, less painful and has fewer complications than an extraction and dental implant.

– However, RCT is only worthwhile if X-rays indicate the tooth can be successfully restored.

– Your dentist will be happy to discuss your options.

“The difficult decision between RCT and extraction is when there is no certainty on the success of RCT.”
