Alternatives to root canal or endodontic surgery

Often, the only alternative to a root canal or endodontic surgery is extraction. In some cases, a weakened tooth may be replaced with a bridge, implant, or partial denture to restore chewing function and prevent shifting of your adjacent teeth.

The type, location, and extent of a crack in a tooth will determine which kind of treatment is most effective.
