I wanted to touch on the part of the article that talks about extraction as the alternative to a pulpectomy. Sometimes this is the only alternative if the tooth is too far gone, but sometimes it's just more affordable. I have had 4 of my teeth extracted because they were back teeth and it was only $60 to pull them as opposed to nearly $1000 to treat them.
No, it's not for everyone as it does impact your chewing a bit, but it is better than letting it go and getting an infection. I also had them pull my wisdom teeth after having problems with them. Teeth can't cause problems if they aren't there, right?
