When Is a Root Canal Necessary?
At Parkside Dental Care, we do all we can to save your natural teeth. We only have one set of teeth that are meant to last for our entire lives. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, but thankfully, we have the knowledge and ability to save as many teeth as we can. This is one of the reasons we stress the need for routine dental care. During routine appointments, we are able to spot problem areas in your mouth and recommend the right treatment. You should implement any treatment suggestions we make as soon as possible so that problems do not worsen. Dental decay will continue to get worse when not treated. A root canal is the last resort before an extraction.
