Do You Have A Cavity?

We are passionate about our patients visiting our office for routine hygiene examinations and cleanings. We recommend that most patients visit our office every six months; however, some people may need to come more often due to existing oral health conditions. During these visits, we not only clean the teeth, but we also look for problems with your teeth and gums. One common problem that affects patients young and old alike is cavities. You are certainly familiar with the term “cavity”, but do you really understand what it means and how it is caused? Read on to learn more about cavities and what can happen if they are not treated.

Getting To Know Root Canal Therapy

One of the reasons we suggest a patient visit our office immediately after we recommend treatment is so their condition doesn’t worsen and require us to perform a more in-depth treatment. We want to do all we can to save your natural teeth. The last treatment we can provide to patients before a tooth extraction is needed is a root canal. Read on to learn more about this treatment and why it’s not as bad as you may imagine.

Never Ignore A Cracked Tooth

When you experience a complication or problem with your oral health, it can be difficult to determine what is an emergency and what can be monitored until your next oral hygiene examination in our office. At Pollard Dental, we are happy to help you determine if you or a loved one should visit our office as soon as possible. One problem that needs treatment immediately is a cracked tooth.
