I want to save my teeth. What are my options?
Making the decision to protect your teeth is the first step to a healthier smile. If you’ve been proactive with your health care, the answer may be as simple as staying current with routine dental exams and cleanings. These preventive treatments are absolutely necessary for staying a step ahead of decay and disease.
If you currently have some dental problems that need attention, we’ll take the time to talk to you about what’s going on and how we can help. There are many options available that allow us to keep your teeth healthy and intact long into the future.
Teeth with mild to moderate decay can usually be fixed with a simple filling. A tooth with more severe decay or damage may require a dental crown to fully protect it.
Without proper oral hygiene and routine dental care, you may find yourself facing a root canal infection. If this happens, we must remove the infection and protect and strengthen the tooth with a crown. Without a root canal, the tooth will most likely be lost.
The time to take steps to protect your oral health is sooner rather than later. If you’d like to learn about all the ways we can keep your teeth healthy, please call George Family Dentistry to arrange a convenient appointment.
