Did we recommend a dental crown during your last visit, but you have put off scheduling your appointment? We understand that we are in the middle of the holiday session, a hectic time for everyone. However, we encourage you to make your oral health a priority even though you’re busier than normal. Delaying a necessary dental treatment, like a crown, can lead to serious complications with your oral health. Read on to learn more about this common treatment.
Are you due for a visit to our office for a hygiene examination or recommended treatment and have avoided scheduling your appointment due to nervous feelings? Millions of Americans experience some form of dental anxiety. However, you should not allow your feelings to keep you from getting the dental treatment you need. Allowing nerves to get in the way of needed dental care can result in added treatments and longer procedures. If dental anxiety is a concern for you or a loved one, we offer a solution to help you get the care you need.
At Northridge Dental Group, we do all we can to save your natural teeth. One treatment in particular can help us achieve this goal — root canal therapy. Many patients have heard of a root canal and have a bad impression without ever having received treatment. If you are unfamiliar, a root canal is the process of removing infected nerve tissue from the inside of the tooth. The root is then cleaned, disinfected, filled, and sealed. If a root canal is not performed when needed, the last resort is to extract the tooth to remove the infection.
