Saving Natural Teeth

Saving Your Natural Teeth

Although it is possible in some cases to replace an extracted tooth with an implant or bridgework, Americans have strong negative feelings about losing their natural teeth.

  • In a recent AAE survey, 76 percent of participants said they would prefer a root canal to tooth extraction.
  • Most people are not aware that root canal treatment is a viable alternative to tooth extraction.
  • Older individuals are much more likely than younger individuals to have experienced a tooth extraction.
  • Artificial teeth can limit your ability to chew certain foods necessary to maintaining a balanced diet.
