Prevention of dental decay occurrence with the help of regular tooth brushing, flossing and mouth rinsing remains the major therapy for oral and dental disease prevention. However, our daily lifestyles and intake of fast foods and cola beverages have alarmingly increased the incidence of tooth decay. Simple fillings suffice if decay involves the outermost white enamel layer and some portion of the yellowish sensitive dentine portion beneath it.
When this infection involves the innermost soft dental pulp tissues harboring the tooth’s nerves and blood supply, your 24 hours emergency cosmetic & restorative dentist Dr William C Gardner at NM Family and Cosmetic Dentistry PC strongly advises you to opt for specialized root canal treatment procedures for saving your teeth.
