Save a Teeth from Dying

Teeth have three main layers: tooth enamel, engine, and pulp. The pulp is located in the root canal chamber at the center of the tooth and is a network of nerves and blood vessels. When a tooth is healthy, the root canal is kept isolated from the outside environment, and so it stays free from bacteria. Sometimes bacteria gain access to the root canal through tooth decay, tooth cracks, or tooth trauma. This bacterial invasion often results in the death of the dental pulp. Sometimes this process is painless, but this process can often be acutely painful. Antibiotics alone are unable to eliminate the invading bacteria because antibiotics cannot effectively access all parts of the root canal. The only way to treat those bacteria is to remove the contents of the pulp chamber. The Bryan Dental in Bryan and College Station area is conveniently located near to the Briarcrest Walmart is a low-cost dental office and is the best dental care near you for treating root canal

 Root canal treatment aims to completely clean bacteria from the root canal of the tooth, and then keep bacteria out. By doing this, it is possible to save the structure of the tooth, giving you better chewing function and preserving the surrounding jaw bone. Under local anesthetic, the pulp chamber is cleaned and then filled over a series of different appointments. Dental x-ray films will be taken before and during the procedure to allow your dentist to monitor the health of the tooth, and the progress of treatment. Most of the tooth structure is preserved; it is just the infected tissues in the root canal which are cleaned away and then sealed off to ensure bacteria do not penetrate the tooth again. It is often necessary to use multiple appointments in order to allow the medications used inside the root canal to eliminate as many of the bacteria as possible.

                                         Taking Care Of Your Oral Health In Self Isolation

During self-isolation, make sure you are well prepared to care for your oral health. The pandemic is disrupting every area of our lives are currently, including physical activity. We can no longer simply go for a walk, visit the gym or play team sports, while the temptation is to sit at home and spend more time on the couch. However, physical inactivity is a major risk factor for developing a 
serious disease

Toothbrush Hygiene
Keep safe by making sure nobody uses each other’s toothbrushes and that they are stored well away from everybody else’s toothbrush. The damp environment of a toothbrush is ideal for spreading viruses. Use separate toothpaste as well.

Continue with Your Normal Oral Care Routine
Sticking to every day routines is important while self-isolating and particularly your dental maintenance routine. Make sure you continue to brush at least twice a day and floss once-a-day. If you 
wish, use a mouthwash for 30 seconds as this can slightly reduce the risk of spreading viruses.

Watch Your Diet
It’s a time when it’s tempting to indulge in snacks and Netflix, but try to limit your consumption of sugary or acidic foods. Instead, concentrate on eating foods that will boost your immune systems like 
vitamin-rich and nutrient-dense fruits and veggies.

Stay Active
Make sure you have some form of physical activity every day. If you can’t get outside, there are plenty of fun exercise routines online.

Drink plenty of Water
It is easy to become dehydrated and especially if you are fighting an infection. Some medications can reduce saliva flow too, so be sure to drink plenty of plain water
