Root Canal Therapy

Root canal treatment is also known as endodontics. Root canal treatment is required when tooth decay has broken through the outer enamel and infected the nerve of the tooth or if the nerve has been disrupted by trauma.

The goal of Cedar Rapids Smile Center is to try and save your natural teeth and avoid extractions. The reason for this is because removing natural teeth leaves gaps which cause the other teeth to compensate. It can therefore affect your bite and then cause a host of other affiliated problems.

While an extraction may remove the offending tooth, it is not the best option in the long term. To avoid losing this tooth with an extraction, we prefer to try root canal therapy first. This way, the infection can be cleared and the tooth can be kept in place.

Under these circumstances, most patients want a quick fix – an extraction. While extraction may remove the offending tooth, it is not the best option in the long term. We prefer to try root canal surgery first. This way, the infection can be cleared and the tooth can be kept in place.
