Looking after your teeth with our dentist

Tuesday, 5th September, 2023

If you are worried about your dental health but suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia, then you need to speak to us at Navan Dental and book an appointment with our dentist Navan who is well aware of the fears and anxieties that patients face with regard to visiting the dentist. Here at Navan Dental we are renowned for offering the best customer service in the Meath area. We will put together an individually tailored dental treatment plan that addresses your unique dental needs whilst taking into careful consideration, your dental anxiety or phobia.

Cavities and tooth decay

Avoiding the dentist in Navan can cause a range of dental health complications, including cavities and tooth decay so it is important that you visit our dentist Navan at least once every six months and more often where possible to prevent these issues. Cavities are tiny openings or holes that form in the tooth enamel and are caused by a combination of factors, including bacteria and lingering food particles in your mouth, frequent snacking on sweet and sticky treats, sipping sugary drinks and poor dental hygiene. If you visit our Dentist Navan on a regular basis then any signs of cavities can be detected very early on. 

Our dentist at Navan Dental will recommend that you improve your dental hygiene routine and that you avoid sugary treats, snacks and drinks as much as possible. If necessary our dentist can prescribe fluoride treatments like a suitable mouthwash or a fluoride varnish to help improve your dental health further.

If you avoid our dentist, then a cavity can become larger and reach the dentin of the tooth. This is the middle layer of the tooth, and as it is softer than the enamel the hole is able to expand more quickly in the dentin and can cause uncomfortable and unpleasant symptoms. A cavity that has reached the dentin might require a filling to prevent further damage to the tooth. If the cavity reaches the dental pulp which is at the centre of the tooth, then you will need to undergo a root canal treatment. This is an invasive procedure which involves removing the infected pulp of your tooth, filling the tooth and restoring the tooth with a cap or a crown.

Tooth extraction and replacement

If you have avoided the dentist completely, then the tooth may be beyond repair and you will have to undergo a tooth extraction. All these issues can be avoided if you visit our dentist at Navan Dental in a timely manner and on a regular basis. If you have lost a tooth due to cavities or tooth decay, then you can speak to us at Navan Dental and find out about replacing the missing tooth sooner rather than later. We offer dental implants for tooth replacement and we will put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you. Speak to us at Navan Dental today and find out more about preventing irreversible damage to your teeth and replacing missing teeth when treatment is no longer sufficient.
