Solving Tooth Troubles With A Root Canal Treatment

While people are often aware that a root canal treatment can address a problem like tooth decay, they may be unclear on what, exactly, a root canal is intended to do. There are cases where dentist can perform restorative dental care on a cavity without performing a root canal.

Being Thorough In Your Daily Oral Care Routine

It is important to take time out of your day to practice good oral care. Brushing and flossing both provide you with a defense against oral bacteria, and these habits keep food debris removed from teeth. Of course, for these actions to be effective, the question of how often you brush and floss should be followed by a question of how thorough you are in these actions. If you rush your daily dental care regimen, you can consistently leave areas of your teeth poorly cleaned. If this occurs, you can be vulnerable to cavities and gum disease! By making sure you give yourself time to fully clean your teeth, and having regular dental cleanings from your hygienist, you can take significant steps to prevent dental difficulties. (more…)

How Can I Recognize When I Have A Periodontal Health Issue?

The health of your gums is something you should take seriously. If a periodontal problem is allowed to go unaddressed, it can worsen, and become difficult to manage. The consequences at this point are serious – gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for adults due to the complications that can arise.

If you notice that your gums feel sensitive, or look red or swollen, you may be dealing with evidence of an infection.

Quiz: Supplying Dental Care For Kids, And Adults

Kids and adults both benefit when they have regular access to preventive dental care. In fact, there are many aspects of care that will stay consistent for younger and older patients alike. At each appointment, a professional cleaning will be provided, as well as a review of your oral health from your dentist. One key difference is that when kids come in for care, part of their appointment can involve educating them on proper oral care. While a child’s teeth are not inherently weaker because of their age, that lack of information and experience when it comes to dental care can raise their cavity risk. Your dentist’s office is proud to offer pediatric dental care, along with excellent care for adult patients. (more…)
