Tooth decay refers to cavities that occur when bacteria builds in your mouth and start producing acid that destroys your teeth. Overlooking tooth decay during the initial stages may cause infection, severe pain and the loss of tooth. The decay progression begins with the hidden damage to the enamel of your teeth and then gradually spreads to inner layers of the tooth, ultimately resulting in a pulp. The pulp of your teeth comprises of highly sensitive nerves and blood vessels.

The major causes of tooth decay include:

How to prevent tooth decay?  

Chisel Dental Clinic Reviews

  1. Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a toothpaste containing fluoride. If possible, brush after having meals and especially before you go off to bed.
  2. Clean between your teeth on a daily basis using dental floss or inter-dental cleaners.
  3. Use a fluoride-containing mouthwash to rinse your mouth because some mouthwashes contain antiseptic ingredients that kill bacteria that cause plaque.
  4. Drink at least one pint of fluoridated water daily as it protects the children from tooth decay.
  5. Eat balanced and nutritious meals and limit the fatty snacks. Keep away from carbohydrates like chocolates, pretzels and chips. If you eat sticky foods, don’t forget to brush your teeth soon afterwards.
  6. Consult your dentist about dental sealants (an artificial protective coating) applied to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth (molars) to protect them from decay.

Founder of Chisel Dental Clinic, Dr Sumanth Shetty—MDS Pedodontia says, “Avoiding a visit to the dentist is not good for your oral health and will eventually cause future tooth decay.” In fact, you should see the dentist frequently for routine cleaning and oral exam.

Treat Problematic Teeth with Root Canal.

The term “root canal” chills us to the bones because most of us think it to be a very painful dental procedure. However, the truth is that root canal, also known as endodontic treatment (endo-inside, dont-tooth), doesn’t cause discomfort or pain but it actually provides relief from it. Experts from Chisel Dental Clinic say that advanced Technologies have made this treatment a totally pain-free experience and a lot of times it gets done in just a single visit. Read on to know more about it:

Root canal is done when the inner portion or the pulp of a tooth becomes sore or infected. The pulp has the nerves and blood vessels and therefore it causes severe pain after catching infections. The inflammation or infection can be caused due to many reasons but mostly they are the result of deep decay or cavity.

It’s not easy to identify if a person needs a root canal procedure because sometimes no symptoms are present. Nonetheless, some common signals that you may experience are listed below:

  • Stark toothache pain when chewing
  • Persistent sensitivity or pain while consuming hot or cold foods and beverages
  • Staining or darkening of the tooth
  • Inflammation and sensitivity in the gums
  • Frequent occurrence of tiny bumps on the gums

If you notice any of the warning signs that have been mentioned above, then you must visit your dentist as soon as possible.

Almost all the general dentists have received training in endodontic treatments and they can perform most endodontic procedures, depending on their comfort level. Often they refer people needing complex root canal treatments to endodontists, who have had expert training in endodontic diagnosis and treatment. Endodontists perform easy as well as difficult procedures in the best possible manner and relieve the patients from tooth problems.
