Benefits of Root Canals

Benefits of Root Canals

While many people recoil at the thought of undergoing a Root Canal, it can benefit their oral health in many ways. One of main benefits that a root canal treatment offers is relieving pain and discomfort. Serious dental caries result in pain that is rather excruciating. A person might not be able to go about their daily activities normally with a toothache and may have sleepless nights as well.

Another benefit of undergoing a root canal is that it can save a tooth from being extracted. In fact, a root canal is suggested instead of a tooth extraction. Therefore, rather than having the tooth removed, the patient is able to save it, treat it and keep it in their mouth.

In addition to this, since undergoing a root canal treatment can save a tooth from being extracted, it lets the patient avoid having to go for other restorations to replace the missing tooth. These restorations normally cost a lot of money and are usually more expensive compared to root canal. Therefore, a root canal can save people from extra spending.

Undergoing a root canal rather than opting to have the tooth extracted helps in maintaining good oral health. After a tooth has been extracted and it is not replaced with a dental restoration, the remaining teeth tend to shift leading to many issues such as bite problems and gaps between teeth. By choosing a root canal, however, these problems can be avoided.

I have had fillings, crowns and a root canal done here. Dr. Koppikar is extremely gentle and kind and always has my best interest at heart. He is constantly checking to make sure my comfort level is where it should be.
