What Are The Alternatives To A Root Canal?

A root canal is performed when bacteria, through a cavity or a crack, creates an infection inside your tooth’s roots. If left untreated, this may compromise your oral health. Although a root canal is very common, there are other options. 

Key takeaway:

  • Tooth extraction is the most effective alternative to a root canal. Extracting the tooth and replacing it with a dental implant or a removable denture will save you plenty of stress in the future.
  • Ozone gas therapy has also been found to reduce bacteria in a decaying or infected tooth that would later need a root canal. 
  • Using a calcium hydroxide solution to remove dead tissue from the infected tooth and reduce bacteria growth has also delivered wonderful results.

If you’re looking for other options to save your teeth, schedule an appointment with your dentist.
