What are the alternatives to dental extractions?
In most cases, our Palms Dental Care team will only recommend a dental extraction because no other treatment options exist. We never take the recommendation for an extraction lightly. At our Lake Worth, FL dental office, we always provide all alternatives, so you can make a choice that works best for you.
Root Canal Therapy
If the tooth is in danger due to an infected nerve, root canal treatment followed by a dental crown can often save a troubled and painful tooth.
Root canals have a bad reputation for being painful when the truth is that they relieve painful symptoms associated with an infection. Some tooth sensitivity may linger for a day or two, but you will feel gradually better each day until the pain and sensitivity are gone completely.
Since root canals remove the blood supply from teeth, the tooth can become brittle. This is why we often recommend a dental crown after root canal treatment.
