If a tooth is abscessed there are only two definitive treatments. The first is root canal therapy (RCT). The second is tooth removal. Unfortunately that is the only alternative.

Clearly RCT is an emotionally “softer” and more economical option (if you replace a tooth). We feel that the long-term price in terms of health may be higher.

We surgically remove the tooth and surrounding infected tissue to ensure the site has the best environment to heal well. This also assists in preventing the development of osteitis in the future. The tooth may then require replacement, depending upon its position in the mouth.
