Understanding oral hygiene basics allows people to better care for their teeth. They pertain to the entirety of the mouth, including the gums, cheeks, and tongue. Oral health is critical to the body’s overall health.

Tooth Extraction

While it is best to preserve a natural tooth, there are times when a tooth extraction is necessary. An extraction may be the best option to maintain oral health due to trauma, disease and crowding.

 

Research has shown chronic dental infections can cause inflammation that contributes to cardiovascular disease, stroke and many other diseases, while a root canal can often save a tooth from decay, sometimes a tooth is beyond saving due to lost structure and stability. Tooth extraction can prevent damaging decay and infection from spreading.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal treatment involves removing the damaged pulp and nerves from inside the tooth to eliminate bacteria and prevent the infection from spreading.

Fillings
