Tooth Decay Treatment: Root Canal Therapy or Fillings?

Tooth decay is uncomfortable and painful. Depending on the seriousness of the cavity, your dentist might recommend fillings or root canal therapy. So how do you know what treatment is best?

Major takeaways:

– Your teeth might only need fillings to be repaired if they are not discoloured, sensitive or cracked.
–  Root canal therapy could help if the decay has progressed to the nerve tissue and discoloured your teeth.
– Please, avoid things that cause cavities, like sugary and acidic foods and smoking.

Also, visit the dentist regularly for professional dental care.
