How Does A Root Canal Procedure Fit Into Cavity Treatment?

If your tooth is affected by decay, will your treatment include a root canal procedure? In some cases, this is necessary, but not everyone who schedules work for a cavity will have to undergo this particular treatment. If a cavity is identified before it exposes you to an internal tooth infection, it can be dealt with in a more conservative manner, meaning more of your healthy tooth structure is left untouched. At our Shrewsbury, MA dental office, we can determine what treatment might be appropriate for your cavity. If you require a root canal, we can make sure that the problem is properly addressed, and that your comfort is prioritized throughout your treatment. We can also provide ongoing dental exams to determine if you have any issues with decay, so we can catch a problem before it reaches this stage. (more…)

Addressing Gingivitis With An Ultrasonic Scaling

Why should you worry about the condition of your gums? If you develop gingivitis, and it is not addressed properly, your condition can worsen and become difficult to manage. A person who experiences this more advanced periodontal infection, known as periodontitis, can experience general health troubles as a result. They can also suffer attachment loss – when the tissues holding your teeth in place are destroyed, they can lose necessary support.
