  • The Importance Of A Root Canal Procedure When You Have An Infected Tooth

    When you hear that you need to have a root canal, you may get nervous and not want the procedure done. Many people who have never had a root canal are concerned about the pain it may cause. Unfortunately, the infection in your tooth pulp will not go away without root canal treatment. If you ignore the problem, you can end up with significant pain, a systemic infection, and a tooth that needs to be pulled.

  • Your Children And The Dentist

    Oral health is key from day one for your children. Instilling proper dental care habits early on will ensure that your children have healthy teeth for years to come. Unfortunately, dental decay during childhood is far more common than you may realize. Around 20 percent of children between the ages of 5 and 11 have at least one tooth with untreated dental decay. Cavities and other forms of tooth decay are preventable, but it does require effort on your part.

    While it has become somewhat of a cliche, many kids are really scared to go to the dentist. The problem is that you can't not take your kids to the dentist. Even if they are diligent about brushing their teeth (which most kids are not that keen on doing every night!) it's still important that you take them to the dentist. There are various issues that young children need to have addressed, such as teeth coming in incorrectly, braces, retainers, and potential overbites that you cannot neglect.

  • Three Reasons To Invest In A Dental Mirror

    Taking an active interest in your dental health involves attending regular dental cleanings, as well as buying the right accessories that you need to care for your teeth at home. One dental care device that you might want to think about purchasing is a dental mirror — a small, circular mirror that is positioned at an angle at the end of the long handle. This is the same device that your dentist and dental hygienist use to look in your mouth, and you can buy a basic version of it inexpensively online.

  • About Me

    Learning to Manage Your Dental Problems

    As a homeschool parent and independent contractor, I don't always have time to practice good dental care. I often find myself in a rush just to meet my daily tasks and goals. My lack of good dental care eventually caught up with me. After experiencing severe pain in my back tooth, I made an appointment with my dentist. My dentist found a large hole in the center of the tooth. Root canal treatment couldn't save the tooth, so my dentist extracted it. I learned a very painful and valuable lesson that day. No matter how hectic my life is, I should still make time to brush and floss my teeth properly. I'm here to help you and other people avoid painful dental problems with my blog. I offer tips on how to keep your teeth clean and how to spot dental problems before they get out of control. Good luck.
