You’re probably reading this because your dentist or endodontist said you have a diseased or injured tooth. If so, rest assured that in the majority of cases, your tooth can be saved with endodontic treatment. Learn about the treatment options available to you, so that you can discuss them with your dentist or endodontist and make the best choice for your oral health.
Endodontic treatment helps you maintain your natural smile, continue eating the foods you love and limits the need for ongoing dental work. With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment can last as long as other natural teeth and often for a lifetime.
