Saving Your Tooth

Modern Endodontics

Patients today have more options than ever before to treat their teeth.  Understanding your choices and their impact on your future dental health and lifestyle is important.  Saving a natural tooth through endodontic treatment should always be a FIRST choice for the best health and cosmetic results provided the predictability of retaining the tooth is high and with a good prognosis.  There are many advantages to saving your natural tooth.

  • Efficient Chewing

  • Normal Biting Force (so you can continue to eat your favorite foods)

  • Maintains A Natural Appearance

  • Limits the Need for More Costly, Ongoing Dental Work

Endodontists are dentists who specialize in saving teeth and have at least two years of advanced training in root canal procedures.  They are experts at diagnosing and relieving tooth pain and use advanced equipment to treat patients quickly and comfortably.  Your dentist probably has partnerships with endodontists in your area already.

A dental implant has a very high degree of success and has become a great choice for replacing a tooth that cannot predictably be saved through endodontic treatment.  Dr. Sullivan will be able to tell you whether your tooth is a candidate to be saved or if an implant would be a more successful treatment option.
