Why and how to save natural teeth

"Some pains are physical and some pains are mental, but the one that's both is dental” - Ogden Nash

It is unbeatable what role a natural tooth plays in our life. No artificial tooth can do what a natural one can. The looks we get, the feelings we experience, and the functions it provides. The best way to save our natural teeth for life long is regular brushing, flossing, and six-monthly check-up visits with your dentist. If the tooth is having any infection or disease, it needs care more than what can be done at home.

Why and how to save natural teeth

Many people are unaware of the advantages of saving a tooth. Getting a tooth pulled out is easy as well as cost-effective. But the removal of a strong natural tooth can have negative impacts on the quality of life. It directly affects our chewing ability, causes the remaining teeth to migrate. If it's in the smile line, the smile gets ruined, needs replacement with an artificial tooth, hence the added dental visits.

Always consider treatments that can save a tooth from being pulled out. In modern dentistry, we have more options, advancements, and technologies that can be wisely used. It impacts not only the tooth/teeth but also the future dental health.

Endodontics is a specialty wherein the dentist saves the teeth. The dentist evaluates the condition and comes up with the best treatment plan suitable which can save them for life long.

The pulp is the heart of the tooth. It can get infected with a deep cavity, cracks, and trauma leading to the flow of bacteria from the oral cavity to the inside of a tooth. It causes pain and swelling and needs immediate dental care attention. Take a step to pain-free and healthy teeth by visiting the dentist.

If the dentist gives an option of root canal treatment or extraction, opt for a root canal procedure. Because dentures, bridges, implants, any kind of artificial teeth can not provide what natural teeth can provide. The joy of saving the teeth becomes evident when you have the tactile sensations while eating your favorite food.

With the use of modern techniques and effective anesthesia, there is very little pain and discomfort as compared to extraction and very less use of medicines and medicaments. If still worried about the pain during Root Canal Treatment (RCT) the dentist will assure you that the pain is short-lived than a loss due to extraction.

In a root canal procedure. The inflamed or infected pulp is removed, the canal is cleaned, disinfected, and filled with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha. Restored with a filling material and a crown on it. This helps in maintaining a natural smile, while you can continue enjoying the food you love, with limited visits to the dentist.

After all, life long-lasting teeth boost self-confidence and health.
