Awareness Campaign to Prevent Unnecessary Tooth Extractions

The Saving Teeth Awareness Campaign has been launched in the United Kingdom to provide information to those patients in need who have a tooth infection as this will lead to bone loss and potential loss of that tooth.

The campaign’s goal boils down to

“If a tooth can be saved, it is the best choice.”

The campaign wants to make those aware that root canal treatment is the first choice when a tooth is infected. Many will instead have the tooth extracted and replaced with a bridge or dental implant but they want to try to save as many teeth from extractions as possible.

An endodontist is a specialist that will often perform root canal therapy

The Root Canal Awareness Week will occur in the United States from March 27 to April 2, 2011. The poster from The American Association of Endodontists (AEE) in promotion of Root Canal Awareness week says

“Root canals don’t cause pain—they relieve it! In fact, modern root canals are virtually painless.”

    I’m so glad that this campaign was launched. If it’s possible to save a tooth then there is definitely no need for extraction.
