Do You Know the Top 3 Ways to Prevent a Root Canal?

root canal Is there any dental procedure more dreaded than a root canal? Well, maybe an extraction. But when it comes to procedures people desperately want to avoid, a root canal is at the top of the list.

While Dr. Egger offers skilled root canal treatment at his office in Mount Pleasant, MI, he always encourages his patients to improve their preventative dental care. There are three ways you can help reduce your risk of needing a root canal—are you practicing them now?

1. Book Professional Cleanings Every 6 Months

Professional dental cleanings offer a deeper level of plaque removal than regular brushing and flossing. You also get a fluoride treatment that strengthens your teeth and helps prevent decay and disease.

By scheduling routine teeth cleanings, you can avoid cavities that could eventually cause the need for a root canal.

2. Brush 3 Times a Day

Many people have gotten into the habit of carrying their toothbrushes to work. It’s a good idea! Brushing within 30 minutes of eating or drinking anything but water can lower the risk of cavities or plaque buildup.

Make sure that you brush with an ADA-approved toothpaste for 2 minutes at a time.

3. Avoid Hard Foods and Candy

Hard foods that require a lot of bite force can lead to fractures in your enamel. When this protective layer of a tooth is damaged, bacteria can enter and, ultimately, infect the root. Stick to softer foods that aren’t hard to chew.

Never Ignore Warning Signs

If you experience pain or sensitivity in any of your teeth, it’s a good idea to book an appointment with the dentist. Even minor discomfort can indicate a cavity, and it’s always best to get a filling as early as possible.

Quick intervention can spare you the cost and stress of more extensive dental work, so don’t hesitate to book an appointment!
