This Is Why Dental Damage Can Require A Root Canal Treatment

In many treatments that involve a root canal procedure, the person undergoing care is in the dentist’s chair because of a cavity. With that said, root canals are not exclusively used for managing problems with tooth decay. You might not realize it, but one of the problems with untreated dental injuries is that your tooth can be at risk for an infection, which calls for a root canal. Your Londonderry, NH dentist’s office can make sure your tooth is fully treated in the event that you have an injury that results in an infection. Thanks to the availability of nitrous oxide and single-tooth anesthesia, we can make sure that your treatment experience is as comfortable as possible. (more…)

Is A Dental Alignment Issue Increasing Your Cavity Risk?

You may be self-conscious about the way your smile looks because you have teeth that are poorly aligned. This discomfort with your appearance may be enough to motivate you to look into orthodontic work. However, if you are not ready to take action just due to cosmetic concerns, you should be aware that there are additional benefits to fixing your smile. By spacing teeth that currently overlap, you can actually reduce your cavity risk by correcting a problem that can make bacteria harder to remove from your teeth when you clean them. Your Londonderry, NH dentist’s office can meet with you to discuss orthodontic treatment with Invisalign, which can lead to positive changes without a conspicuous orthodontic appliance. (more…)

Wearing Your Invisalign Aligners In The Workplace

People begin orthodontic treatment at different ages, but an adjustment often takes place when a person is in their tween and teen years. Because braces are so connected with younger people, they can be associated with youthfulness. Unfortunately, this can make people hesitant to explore their orthodontic treatment options as adults, particularly when they work in a more professional setting. You can be happy to know that your Londonderry, NH dentist’s office provides clear aligners to individuals interested in straightening their teeth. By using Invisalign aligners to correct your alignment flaws, you can make impressive changes without an awkward period wearing metal braces! (more…)

Digital Measurements Are Used For Your Invisalign Treatment

The process of planning your orthodontic treatment is an important one. To create the ideal custom Invisalign aligners for your smile, your dentist needs to have precise measurements of your current smile. In the past, dentists have relied on patients biting into plaster molds to create impressions of their bite. Creating these impressions could be decidedly unpleasant – after all, it is hard to enjoy the experience of biting into plaster! Your Londonderry, NH dentist’s office relies on advanced digital tools to measure your teeth, and plan your orthodontic procedure. This reliance on modern technology can ensure that incredibly accurate measurements are taken, and it can make for a better patient experience. (more…)

A Root Canal Can Be Necessary For A Cracked Tooth

Because root canal treatments are required frequently when it comes to addressing tooth decay, you might have the impression that this procedure is “for” cavities. There are a few reasons this is incorrect – one is that not every cavity requires a root canal, and the other is that root canal treatments are sometimes needed for other issues. One of those issues concerns dental injuries. If your tooth is cracked, it can become infected, and you can experience problems like dental pain and sensitivity as a result. If too much time passes, an infection can allow bacteria to spread beyond your tooth, and create additional problems. Your Londonderry, NH dentist’s office is prepared to take care of your cracked tooth by providing a quality root canal experience! (more…)

Still In Pain After A Tooth Injury? Endodontic Care Can Help

The lingering pain that can occur after injuring your tooth can serve as a warning that deserves your attention. Persistent discomfort, as well as an increased sensitivity, can be symptoms of internal tooth problems. These problems can develop if your tooth is cracked, exposing your pulp to bacteria. With that said, you may develop internal problems even if you do not see signs of visible trauma. Your Londonderry, NH dentist’s office is prepared to help you deal with internal problems through endodontic care. In addition to routine root canal procedures, we can offer more specialized internal tooth treatments to protect you from potentially serious issues! (more…)

The Role Root Canals Play In Addressing Tooth Decay

What kind of role should a root canal treatment play in addressing your cavity? That can depend on when your cavity was discovered, and how serious it is. When you keep up with regular dental exams, you make it more likely that any issue with tooth decay you experience can be identified and treated before a root canal is needed. However, if your decay has had time to grow severe, you could find yourself in need of treatment to deal with an internal tooth infection. At this point, your Londonderry, NH dentist is ready to offer a root canal, and fully restore the health of your tooth. In addition to carefully taking care of an infection, our practice can use a modern approach to treatment that prioritizes your comfort. (more…)
