Ritter Endodontics strives to improve the overall health of our patients by focusing on preventing, diagnosing and treating root canals and associated conditions. However, you can use our website's dental library to learn more about not only endodontics but also many other dental problems and treatments available. If you have questions or need to schedule an appointment, contact us.

 



Alternatives to root canal or endodontic surgery

Often, the only alternative to a root canal or endodontic surgery is extraction. In some cases, a weakened tooth may be replaced with a bridge, implant, or partial denture to restore chewing function and prevent shifting of your adjacent teeth.

The type, location, and extent of a crack in a tooth will determine which kind of treatment is most effective.
