Saving your natural tooth should always be your priority where dental care is concerned. Nothing, not even the most advanced dental implants or bridges, can truly replace the look and feel of your natural tooth.
- If your dentist recommends tooth extraction, ask if an endodontist can help save it with root canal treatment. This endodontic treatment removes the injured pulp (soft inner tissue) of your tooth and fills and seals the space previously occupied by the internal tissue.
- Your restored tooth can function just like any other tooth for the rest of your life, ensuring comfortable chewing and a natural appearance.
- Endodontists can often save the most severely injured teeth.

If an endodontic procedure can’t save your tooth, often, the only alternative is extraction. Because missing teeth can make you self-conscious, affect your ability to bite and chew, cause other healthy teeth to shift and have a negative impact on your overall health, you should consider a dental implant to replace the extracted tooth.

Compare endodontic treatment to dental implants.
Research has proven that endodontic treatment and dental implants are equally successful. Therefore, it makes sense to start by trying to save your natural tooth—nothing looks, feels or functions like it. Ultimately, your treatment decision should be based on a plan you have discussed with your dental team and that you agree is best for your overall health. Dental or tooth implant can be avoided with early dental care.
