Do teeth with root canals become dangerous to extract later?

Sometimes, teeth treated with root canal therapy develop brittle roots, calling for gentle and precise extraction. Your dentist wants to remove the tooth cleanly while preserving the bone. This approach helps make the space ready for a possible dental implant.

What Is a Root Canal Burnaby, BC?

A root canal treatment removes infected pulp and tissues from the central canal of a tooth. Without treatment, the infection typically becomes painful, and the gum swells. You may also notice a blister on the gum near the pain source. A root canal treatment gets rid of the pain and swelling, and then we retore the tooth’s structure with a dental crown.

If the infection is severe and the tooth breaks below the gumline, your dentist may talk to you about extraction instead of treatment followed by tooth replacement. Tooth replacement is essential to maintain your smile and oral health.
