Say the word - root canal treatment and most patients pale a couple of shades. The pain/discomfort of an RCT is so well known that hardly anybody is willing to undergo the procedure without a great deal of coaxing.
However an root canal treatment is life saving - for your tooth of course. Basically an root canal treatment allows you to retain a tooth in your mouth and serve you for a good many more years. The only other alternative to treating a tooth indicated for an root canal treatment is to remove it(extract) it. Many patients think (erroneously) that removing a tooth is the easy and cheaper way out. However not only are they wrong about it being the shortcut - it generally turns out to be more expensive too.
A natural tooth is a natural tooth - ask anyone who has had to live with artificial teeth. Therefore every extra bit of effort that is taken to save a natural tooth is worth it. If your tooth is indicated for an root canal treatment - get it done Today.
