A root canal is something that should never be taken lightly, and it is all up to you to make sure that it never comes to the stage when this kind of dental job is necessary. Of course, there are some people who are unlucky and more prone to the kind of tooth decay that may make this treatment necessary, where as others seem to have teeth that could sit in a glass of coke for an age and still stand the test of time (a bit of an exaggeration).
There are many London dentists who are highly experienced with this kind of treatment but we are here to make sure that you don’t even make it to that stage in the first place. This is what they call preventive dentistry, and we are here to make sure that any decay does not come about. Firstly, even though it may seem like I sound like your mother, brushing your teeth and carrying out all the other important oral hygiene activities is essential to getting on with healthy teeth. It may be a pain to clean your teeth at night when you are feeling drowsy, but leave it too often and you will pay the price.
Next is the case of sugar, and it is not only sweets from the corner shop that you ened to worry about. Even fruit juice which you would think is insanely healthy can have a bad effect on your teeth, as there are often large quantities of sugar in such drinks. Reading the label of such things and of course cutting back on the sweet intake can make a real different and ward off what can be an invasive treatment.
