What are the alternatives to root canal treatment?

If the pulp of a tooth is inflamed and/or infected or if there is already inflammation of the jawbone, the only alternative to root canal treatment is the removal of the tooth. In order to restore the chewing function and prevent gradual misalignment of the neighbouring teeth, the removed tooth must be replaced by an implant or a bridge. The long-term prospects of success of alternatives to tooth retention are not better. No matter how effective modern dental prosthesis can be, there is no real replacement for a natural tooth.
