Looking after your teeth and and looking out for warning signs

It is important to look after your teeth and visit your dentist on a regular basis to make sure that your teeth are clean and healthy and that your daily oral hygiene routine is sufficient for maintaining good oral health. Where necessary the dentist can offer professional cleaning to help remove any plaque and tartar build-up in those hard-to-reach areas to help prevent dental issues in the future. Despite good oral hygiene, sometimes you may find that you are experiencing certain symptoms with regard to your teeth. Toothache, bleeding gums, sensitivity and bad breath may be common issues, but are warning signs that should never be ignored and it is important to contact your dentist Meath immediately at the first sign of any such symptoms. 

Root canal therapy at your dentist Meath

Root canal therapy is a dental procedure which is commonly carried out at our dental practice. It is a treatment which is required when the dental pulp in the centre of your tooth becomes infected. This can occur due to many different reasons and can cause sensitivity of the tooth, toothache, or swelling of the gum around the tooth. It is important to contact your dentist as soon as you suspect any of these issues, but regular appointments with your dentist Meath are even more important as sometimes you may have no symptoms at all, but signs of infection can be detected early using X-rays and other examinations carried out by them. Root canal treatment is carried out by removing the infection from the tooth, and decontaminating the inside of the tooth, protecting it from further bacterial invasion. Your comfort and ease are our priority, and although root canal treatment needs a few appointments to the dentist, the aim of the treatment is to prevent irreversible damage and avoid tooth loss and we will make the procedure as comfortable for you as possible.

Extractions and oral surgery at your dentist Meath

Unfortunately sometimes we may find that a tooth or teeth may have to be removed, and this is when a tooth extraction is required at your dentist Meath. There are two types of tooth extractions according to how the tooth is located and positioned in the mouth. If the tooth is easily accessible then only a simple extraction is necessary. However if a tooth is deeply embedded into the jaw or hidden amongst other teeth then a surgical extraction may be necessary. A tooth extraction may be required due to many different factors, including when the tooth becomes irreversibly damaged due to poor oral hygiene or untreated gingivitis and periodontal disease. Tooth extractions may be necessary to help an impacted tooth or to prevent or treat overcrowding in the mouth. Tooth extractions are a last resort and here at our dentist, your comfort and good oral health is our priority. We will provide a safe, comforting and professional environment for all your dental needs, providing pain relief wherever necessary to help ease the process as much as we can. We are here to look after your teeth, improve your oral hygiene and help you smile beautifully, so contact us at Navan Dental with your dental enquiries today. Medical card holders are also welcome at Navan Dental.
