A root canal is done to preserve a tooth that has become infected. With root canal therapy, infection and debris are removed from the pulp chamber of the tooth and a dental crown is placed over the top to help prevent future damage.
If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants may be the best solution. Made of titanium, dental implants are used to replace missing tooth roots, enabling them to provide a secure and reliable hold for restorations such as dental bridges, dentures, and porcelain crowns. In the short video below, Buffalo implant dentist Dr. Larry Evola discusses what dental implants are and how they can be used to strengthen and beautify your smile.
One of the consequences of tooth loss is jaw collapse. When the root of a tooth is missing, the body no longer knows to keep density in that area of the jaw. As a result, minerals and nutrients stop feeding the area, causing the bone to shrink and allowing facial skin to sink and sag. This can prematurely age the face.
It is important that you remain aware of early warning signs that indicate a tooth problem. Pain and sensitivity, red or swollen gums, and other indications of oral health problems should always be brought to the attention of Dr. Larry Evola right away. When treated early on, issues like decay and infection can often be resolved noninvasively. When left to progress, however, tooth extractions and similarly involved procedures may be unavoidable.
As strange as it sounds, you can actually damage your teeth if you are brushing incorrectly. In this short video, Buffalo dentist Dr. Larry Evola discusses those times when brushing is a bad idea along with ways to optimize your daily routine for maximum efficacy.
