Understanding Oral Health

Many people do not realize how important flossing is in our daily hygiene routines. While flossing may seem time consuming, it is majorly beneficial to our oral health and hygiene. On top of flossing, brushing day and night is essential to clean everything out of the teeth. Flossing removes the excess plaque and debris where build up may occur. Without flossing, your teeth may experience a buildup of plaque, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. If you floss along with brushing your teeth, you will notice your gums and teeth will be much healthier.

Also, being sure to have regularly scheduled dental exams to protect yourself from gum disease or other oral health issues. Additional maintenance beyond the above mentioned things is not a requirement.

Preserving the Jaw
When a tooth or teeth are missing the bone around where the tooth would have been will eventually start to deteriorate. With bone deterioration the structure and shape of the jaw can begin to shift which causes a change in the appearance of a person. However, because of the fact that dental implants are placed at the root the jawbone is preserved and essentially dental implants promote bone regeneration. Also, the dental implants protect the bone and overall improve the aesthetic appeal of your entire smile.

Eat What You Want
Unlike with dentures because dental implants are permanently placed into your mouth and are made to function like your natural teeth you don’t have any dietary restrictions. This means the quality of your life will be improved because you no longer have to avoid certain foods for fear of your dentures falling out or getting stuck in your food. Eating what you want when you want gives you newfound freedom.

When it comes to a root canal it is important to see an endodontist. This is because they have the most experience with performing root canals and because they perform them a lot more often than general dentists. Also, they are more equipped to ensure your comfort while providing you with dental care.

Schedule A Consultation
If you are in need of a root canal please don’t hesitate to contact your dentist so they can refer you to an endodontist. Thanks to sedation there is no longer a need to let dental anxiety keep you from going to the dentist. Also, avoiding having a root canal done will cause your teeth to decay or worse fall out.
