Root canals, best way to save infected teeth
Root canal therapy is one of the most misunderstood dental procedures. However, it is one of the best ways to save an infected tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted, and a root canal can bring almost immediate pain relief to the patient.

A root canal may be required when the inner pulp of a tooth - the part with nerves - becomes infected due to decay or a cavity. The therapy involves cleaning and sanitizing this inner chamber, sealing it off with special material to prevent infection, and protecting the remaining enamel - the portion of the tooth above the gum line - with a crown.

Veneers can help your smile
Porcelain or dental veneers are customized wafer-thin shells made of materials that give the appearance of natural teeth. They cover the tooth’s front surface to improve its appearance. They are bonded to the tooth’s front to change its length, shape, color, or size.

Veneers are usually crafted using porcelain or resin composite (tooth filling) materials. Compared to resin veneers, porcelain veneers are more resistant to staining and also better mimic the aesthetics of natural teeth. Your dentist can help you decide on the best option for you.

Dental veneers can fix a range of cosmetic issues such as discoloration caused by root canal treatments and staining from drugs such as tetracycline or excessive fluoride. They can also help improve the shape of teeth that are broken, chipped, or worn down. The appearance of teeth that are shaped irregularly, uneven, or misaligned can also be improved using veneers. They can also be used to close any spaces or gaps between the teeth.

The biggest advantage of veneers is that they make your teeth and smile look natural. The gum tissue has a high tolerance for porcelain. Porcelain veneers are also resistant to stains. You can even choose a different shade than your natural teeth to make you smile brighter. Veneers offer a very conservative approach when it comes to changing the shape and color of the tooth.

Brushing and Flossing for Healthy Smiles
With the right care, your gums and teeth can stay healthy for a lifetime. The healthier your gums and teeth, the less vulnerable you are to conditions such as gum disease and tooth decay. Your dentist can provide you with some easy tips and advice on how to look after them.

First, it is important to brush your gums and teeth at least once in the morning and once at night. Try to brush your teeth within thirty minutes to an hour after each meal. Brushing will help remove the film of bacteria that lies on the surface of the teeth, plaque. When the bacteria that thrive in plaque come into contact with remnants of your food, they produce acids that cause cavities. Also gently brush your tongue to remove bacteria and to freshen your breath. Once you have brushed for two to three minutes, rinse using mouthwash. It is also advised to replace your toothbrush every three to four months.

Flossing should also be an essential part of your daily routine. This is because flossing helps get rid of plaque and food between your teeth and in areas where the toothbrush cannot reach. If plaque stays between teeth, it can harden and become tartar which will then have to be professionally removed.
