When is needed a Root Canal Therapy?

Root Canal Therapy helps to repair and preserve natural teeth. His mission is to avoid extractions in the short or medium term. The dentists recommend it when the tooth suffers irreversible damage that affects the nerve. The Endodontist cleans the canals and replaces the damaged pulp/nerve with a biocompatible material.

The main signs of dental nerve deterioration are:

  • Tenderness and pain while chewing
  • Darkening of tooth or gums
  • Swollen or tender gums
  • Bad taste in the mouth (derived from infection)
  • The appearance of pimples on the gums


If you identify one or more of previous symptoms, contact us to help you find the best solution.

Root Canal Therapy vs Extraction

The key in this debate is knowing when each should be applied. It should not be about convenience or speed. At Smile Makeover, we follow the principles of Conservative Dentistry. That is keep natural teeth the longest possible instead of extractions. This is accomplished by sealing fissures, fillings (simple or complex), and root canals. By applying endodontics we avoid problems derived from losing a tooth. As well as the complications of not replacing the tooth at the time.

Benefits of Saving Natural Teeth

An implant cannot compete in functionality or aesthetics with the natural tooth. The main benefits of Root Canal are:

  • Avoiding extract the natural tooth
  • Eliminate dental infections and consequences such as halitosis
  • Saving the tooth avoid mobility and displacement of adjacent teeth
  • Replaces tooth areas that had disappeared, restoring their functionality
  • Avoiding more expensive dental treatments

However, there are cases when it is impossible to save the tooth.

After our Specialist review your case, he will determine if an extraction is the best for you. These are some reasons that make an extraction necessary:

When is an Extraction necessary?

  • If the tooth presents a vertical fracture
  • When the root has a minimum length that makes it impossible to hold the crown to it
  • In periodontal patients who have suffered marked damage to the gingiva as supporting tissue
