Is Your Smile At Risk Due To Poor Brushing Habits?

While it should be part of a larger plan to keep your smile healthy, your brushing routine is certainly important! While people often believe that they have an effective approach to brushing, many will be surprised to find out in the future that they need restorative dental work because of a cavity. This is because a person’s idea of “good” brushing habits may not be as effective as they suspect. You may be consistent about brushing two times a day, but are you spending enough time taking care of your teeth each time? Are you switching toothbrushes often enough?

What Can Happen If I Try To Avoid A Root Canal Procedure?

A root canal procedure can put a stop to a potentially severe problem with your tooth. This restorative dental treatment is called for when a person has a problem that has infiltrated the inner chamber of their tooth. This space, known as a tooth’s pulp, houses living tissues that sustain it. If you need a root canal, but try to avoid the procedure, your tooth can grow sensitive, and become a constant source of pain. If you keep putting off treatment, you may lose your tooth, and develop new problems! Our Allen, TX dental practice provides root canals in a friendly, comfortable environment, so your oral health trouble can be stopped before frustrating complications arise. (more…)
