At Parkside Dental Care, we try our very hardest to help you save your natural teeth. We know that there can be a number of reasons that your teeth might experience decay such as age, family history, and neglect. Whatever the reason, we want to assure our patients that we will attempt every solution possible before a tooth extraction is recommended. One solution that might be offered is a root canal. Unfortunately, root canals have a bad reputation, and most patients aren’t jumping for joy when this procedure is suggested. What patients might not realize is that this popular treatment can be the difference between a tooth extraction and you leaving our office with your natural tooth.
