Fillings, crowns, and root canals are all treatment options for damaged teeth, and each provides a different level of treatment. A filling is appropriate if your tooth has a minor cavity and simply needs to be cleaned of decay and patched up. A crown is appropriate if the tooth’s integrity has been severely compromised.
In this video, the speaker discusses fillings, crowns, and root canals, and how they represent different solutions to the same problem: damaged teeth. Root canals are for the most severely damaged teeth—teeth that have become infected all the way to the nerve. No matter which procedure your dentist recommends, however, they’re all only minimally uncomfortable and will restore your smile in no time.
