Root Canal vs. Tooth Extraction: Pros and Cons

Root canal treatment preserves the natural tooth structure by removing infected or damaged tissue from within the tooth. Tooth extraction involves complete removal of the tooth from the socket, which can lead to loss of function and aesthetics. Root canal treatment allows for retention of the tooth's functionality, including chewing and speech, avoiding the need for replacement options like dental implants or bridges. Tooth extraction may be necessary in cases of severe damage, extensive decay, or when root canal treatment is not feasible.
