We Can Save Your Teeth With Root Canal Treatment

At McMillan Family Dental, we are passionate about doing all we can to help our patients’ oral health. Teeth are designed to last a lifetime, but when they are not cared for properly or treatment is avoided, it can lead to an extraction and the need for a tooth replacement. There is one treatment we often use to save the tooth before an extraction is needed — a root canal. Over the years, root canals have gotten a bad reputation, but thanks to advancements in treatment and technology, the process is similar to a more involved filling.

What Causes Tooth Sensitivity?

Do you often feel discomfort in your teeth when you eat extremely hot or cold foods? If so, you are experiencing tooth sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity is common, and most people experience it at some point. However, if you experience issues with sensitivity regularly, your mouth is alerting you that something isn’t right with your oral health.

However, it is important to make your oral health a priority. Even if you aren’t in need of treatment at this time, it is important to know that delaying a necessary treatment can seriously impact the state of your oral health. Read on to learn more about the negative impact delaying treatment can have on your oral health.

Are You Experiencing Signs of Gum Disease?

At McMillan Family Dental, we encourage patients to visit our office for routine hygiene examinations. Not only are these appointments necessary to look for signs of tooth decay, but we also look for other common conditions that can be rather severe if not detected early and treated in a timely manner. One such condition is gum disease. Gum disease, also commonly known as periodontal disease, is a serious gum infection caused by bacterial growth along the gumline and around the base of the tooth. When gum disease is left untreated, it will continue to progress and can cause serious complications such as tooth loss and deterioration of the jawbone.
