Root Canal Alternatives

Root Canal AlternativesA common question asked by members of the public is, are there any root canal alternatives?

Instead of undergoing a root canal treatment is there anything else that can be done? It is possible to redo a root canal treatment, perform a follow-on procedure called an apicectomy, or perform a tooth extraction as a last resort. Furthermore, seeing a Specialist Endodontist (a specialist in this area) can help to save a tooth that otherwise may have been extracted.

Root Canal Alternatives

Specialist Endodontist Root Canal

Seeing a Specialist Endodontist for an initial treatment or to redo a root canal that someone else has attempted previously can often be effective. An Endodontist has many more years training in this area than a general dentist. Therefore, they have a more in-depth knowledge of how to treat failed root canals. They also may have more advanced equipment at their disposal to ensure a better outcome.


An Apicectomy removes the pulp from the very tip of the root (the apex). Sometimes, when a root canal treatment fails it can be due to infection remaining in the farthest reaching area of the tooth. Once this is removed the tooth could be restored and the infection eliminated. A specialist will usually perform this procedure.

Tooth Extraction

If all other treatments fail then the tooth will need to be removed. This is the last resort. If the tooth does need tooth extraction then there are options for replacement. These include a partial denture, a dental bridge, or a dental implant.

If you suspect you may have a tooth infection then you can call the clinic on 0208 547 9997. In addition to this, we offer a fast and effective emergency dentist service for those patients who need urgent assistance with any type of dental issue. Furthermore, new or existing patients do not need to make an appointment for emergency dental care, they can simply walk straight into the clinic. Our staff are highly trained and are on hand to assist you with all your dental needs. Why not see how we can assist you today, here at Pearl Dental Clinic.
