If your tooth is in poor enough shape to make eating uncomfortable, or even to cause pain throughout the day, you can be understandably concerned about its health. So why would a patient put off treatment when they feel confident that something is really wrong with their oral health? Concerns about losing a tooth can make people reluctant to speak up even as a problem continues to affect them. What you should know is that when you seek care in time, your trouble can be resolved through root canal therapy. At our Moreno Valley, CA dentist’s office, we can provide important feedback about the state of your smile when you have an advanced toothache or sensitivity issues. If there is no option left but to extract your tooth, we can make plans to restore your smile with a durable and lifelike dental prosthetic.

Delaying Treatment For Dental Problems Can Lead To Complications

When you start to suffer from persistent pain or sensitivity issues, it can be a sign that your tooth has developed an infection. Infections form as oral bacteria make their way into a tooth’s pulp and attack the living tissues found within. This can lead to the need for a tooth extraction in time. However, if the matter is treated in time, you can save the tooth through root canal therapy and the placement of a dental crown.

When Is Tooth Extraction Called For?

If you do not have your tooth examined and treated in time, bacteria can spread through its roots and cause irreversible damage to its structure. At this point, extracting it will be necessary to protect you against more problems with infection that can hurt your smile. It is possible for an extraction to be necessary after a severe tooth injury, though in many cases damage can be resolved with restorative work.

We Can Make Sure Your Smile Is Preserved After Treatment

Even if your tooth has to be extracted, we can save your smile by providing a lifelike dental prosthetic. One approach we can take is to plan treatment with a dental implant. Implant dentistry provides prosthetic teeth with secure, root-like posts that are set directly in your jawbone. When they are present, they will be able to provide important bite support while also stimulating your jaw and preventing the bone from deteriorating.
