Eliminate Anxiety in the Dental Chair

Patients of all ages and backgrounds have often expressed anxiety or stress about going to the dentist. There may be many varied reasons for this fear of the dentist. Some patients have had bad experiences in the past that they would prefer not to repeat, but most are simply sensitive to the sights, sounds and even smells of a dental clinic. Some are fearful only because they’ve never been to the dentist before and simply don’t know what to expect from treatment.

Even for patients with high stress levels, it is important not to miss regular visits to the dentist. By scheduling regular examinations and professional cleanings many patients will avoid the need for more serious and potentially painful treatment sessions such as fillings or root canals.

If you find yourself feeling anxious or fearful of going to the dentist, don’t let the fear determine your oral health. First of all practice rigorous at home oral hygiene to avoid preventable follow-up visits. If your child is anxious about the dentist, make sure to start early with at home dental care so they grow accustomed to caring for their teeth and having someone else tend to them.

Secondly, for your professional examinations you must find a dental office that you trust and can feel comfortable in. The family dental group specializes in comfortable and personalized care for each patient. We understand that our services are important but that you might not like visiting our office – so we take extra care to hear out your concerns and avoid any unnecessary treatments that can add stress to your visit.

Contact our practice today to schedule an initial consultation and office tour to get acquainted with our caring and friendly staff before your next dental check-up.

How to Care for Your Teeth After a Root Canal

A root canal is a treatment used by dentists to eliminate infection from the pulp of a tooth. The pulp is found deep inside your tooth where the nerves and blood vessels are also found. If you suddenly experience deeply rooted pain from within your tooth you should schedule a dental examination immediately, it is very possible that you may require a root canal. Root canals are very common procedures and are used to save your teeth from having to be pulled – so it is important not to delay treatment, especially if you are in pain.

Dental experts at the Family Dental Group have developed a streamlined process for the removal of infection and the cleaning and decontamination of the hollowed out tooth pulp. However, depending on the extent of your dental infection you may be asked to return for follow-up treatment visits to complete your root canal.

After receiving a root canal, your tooth will essentially be rendered “dead.” All of the nerve endings inside your tooth will be removed during the root canal treatment and the tooth will be filled with a durable material or capped off with a crown, allowing your tooth to function naturally and without pain again

Many patients ask how to care for their treated tooth following a root canal. Your Family Dental Group dentist will likely recommend that you continue regular at home care as you would with your untreated teeth. More importantly you should be extra-careful when cleaning and flossing your other healthy teeth as to avoid the need for additional root canals in the future.
