At Ackley Dental Group, our goal is to help restore your oral health and save your natural teeth whenever possible. Unfortunately, there are many factors that can contribute to the deterioration of your oral health, such as age, food preferences, medications, oral hygiene and family history. We will attempt every possible solution before recommending an extraction. We often use one treatment in particular as a last resort to save the natural tooth, and that is a root canal. There is no better time to learn more about root canals since this is Root Canal Awareness Month.
Is a root canal at the top of your holiday list this year? We know that root canals are something that you try to avoid at all costs and can create a sense of panic in some patients. Root canals get a bad rap as a procedure full of discomfort; however, this can be further from the truth. Root canals can help save your tooth and eliminate the need for a more in depth procedure such as an implant.
