Holistic Dentistry – Root Canal Alternative Dentist NJ – 07922

Once an RCT is performed, the tooth must be restored with a post and a crown. These will strengthen the tooth and prevent a crack or fracture from developing after treatment. A good analogy is a tree branch. When it’s alive, it flexes or bends when pressure is applied. On the other hand, a dead branch, like an RCT, will break under the same stress.

WHAT ARE THE PROS AND CONS OF ROOT CANALS?

  • The pro of a root canal is obvious: the painful or dead tooth is treated and extraction is avoided. But we must ask two key questions before starting a root canal.
  • The cons or risks with an RCT are less obvious. They center on the fact that a tooth is an “open” biological system which interacts with the body.

However, accessory nerves and dental tubules, which are present in all teeth, can still communicate with the body.

WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS ONCE A ROOT CANAL IS INEVITABLE?

It’s important to understand that all teeth problems are unique. No treatment is universal. Individual circumstances may dictate that a specific treatment is not an option. Or perhaps one option will offer a superior result over another.
