Dr Dental – Saving Teeth Through Root Canal Treatment.

08/27/22 10:43 AM

Question: I have some very bad teeth and I though I would just have them pulled and get partials. But the dentist I went to see, said they can save my teeth by doing root canal treatments. The cost of having six root canal and crown work even with insurance is very costly. I feel like just pulling them and having partials would be a much more affordable. I told the dentist this and was told that it maybe cheaper but you should never pull teeth unless necessary. I not sure if he was just saying that to make more money

Reply: The dentist you went to is correct in the fact that whenever possible to save a tooth you should compared to pulling it out. Missing teeth even with partials will start to cause the remaining teeth to shift which can effect your bite. It also leave the remaining teeth more prone to dental care issues. Keeping your teeth would be a better option whenever possible.

If you can not afford to have all six done at once go over your options. Fix the ones need to be done right away and save up to fix the ones that can maybe wait a while. Ask your dentist about a possible in house payment option
