When it comes to your oral health, YOU are the number one component. You only get one set of permanent teeth in your lifetime, so taking proper care of your oral health and having necessary intervention done in a timely manner are the two things that will make or break your smile.
As Benjamin Franklin is famous for saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This applies to all areas of your health. The best way to protect your smile from decay and infection is by taking proper care of your teeth. You need to make flossing daily, brushing at least twice a day, regular dental visits, and a healthy diet a priority in your life. These small steps will have a vast impact on how healthy your smile is and how long it lasts.
Even with the best of preventative care, there are times when issues will arise, and you will need medical intervention. A damaged tooth or an infection inside the mouth must be addressed as quickly as possible. Ignoring an oral health issue will not make it go away – it will only make it worse.
Painless Root Canals
Root canal therapy is one of the most essential oral healthcare treatments you are likely ever to need. The myths surrounding root canals have caused patients unnecessary pain because they put off having a root canal procedure. What you need to understand is that all pain mistakenly associated with root canal therapy is due to the infected tooth, not the procedure. Root canal therapy is one of the least painful general dentistry procedures available from Jefferson Dental Care.
Every tooth is a living feature with its own network of blood vessels and nerve endings. When a tooth is damaged or infected, the nerve endings are under constant attack, and they send shooting pain sensations from the tooth. It is essential that your tooth be treated promptly to alleviate your pain and prevent damage from spreading to neighboring teeth.
