While loving your smile’s appearance for life is certainly a goal many aspire to reach, its health and function are always going to be the top priority. Indeed, your oral health encompasses many areas, including structure, function, appearance, and more. Each of these categories can them be divided into smaller, more specific categories, and so on and so forth. Even still, the biggest threat to nearly everyone’s teeth involve dangerous dental decay. In today’s blog, your Overland Park, KS dentist will take a look at the many stages of decay, as well as how we can address internal infection with a root canal by bringing our office to you.
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, most families have established new and unique routines while in quarantine. With limited capacities and no dine-in eating, many families have taken to eating at home or ordering in, and fear of infection has prevented a great number of individuals from seeking routine dental treatment. Because of this, it is only natural that cavities ensue.
Cavities are caused by destructive acids that harmful bacteria secrete when feeding off of food particles and sugar. Without proper treatment, they will continue to grow in size and depth until they infect the inner dental pulp of a tooth. At this stage, you may begin to experience sharp pains or sensitivity, as the nerves contained in the roots are affected as well. If this is the case, it may be time to have our office come visit you for a root canal treatment.
Receiving Necessary Treatment
Root canal therapy plays an important role for a number of reasons. First, it allows our team to thoroughly remove any sign or infection or harm so that your concern does not spread or worsen. Second, it helps us preserve your natural structure so you do not have to endure extraction, if tended to in a timely manner. Indeed, the last thing your dentist wants is for you to lose a natural tooth, and we will do everything we can to help salvage any that may be threatened by decay.
