Have your dentist maintain only the teeth would want to keep.
Root Canal! Hah! I just made you just shiver three times in your chair. However, that fear is highly self-exaggerated and with no valid basis.
Most adults associate dentistry with television or movie portrayals. The Three Stooges, The Marx Brothers or Abbot and Costello; even a western or old comedy routine depicting the “dentist” holding the patient down with his knee while pulling a tooth with rusty piers. (Just divulged my age, did I not?)
These are myths that need dispelling.
Recently my dentist, Dr. Brent Mowery, prescribed a root canal for my aching molar. Since teeth do not regenerate nor suddenly heal themselves and I wanted to enjoy. . . .well, eating and offering the occasional smile, I was happy to comply. Okay, “happy” is a strong statement.
Considering I did not attend dental school and have no associated medical training, I think it a far better decision to defer to my dentist’s recommendations where my teeth are concerned. After all, I don’t second-guess my cardiologist, either.
When you have the right dentist, he or she is working on your behalf to maintain your dental health. Moreover, your medical health as they are associated.
At Comfort Dental, I had the good fortune of meeting Dr. Brent Mowery; a professional whom I know has my best interests at heart.
Dr. Mowery shows compassion to any discomfort the patient might encounter, taking every opportunity to alleviate the anxiety and initial pinch by using a topical anesthetic limiting this discomfort. Isn’t that initial pinch is far better than a toothless smile or gumming your burgers for life?
Therefore, I had my root canal and once the anesthetic wore off, I did not need as much as an aspirin for any residual pain. The process is quick as is the recovery. That evening, I dined without pain or fear of incurring further damage that would undoubtedly have occurred had I not attended to this when recommended.
So, as previously stated, have your dentist maintain only the teeth would want to keep. It’s your choice whether to have 3 or 4 teeth or a complete smile.
PS: I have failed miserably to mention the exceptional support staff of highly professional dental assistants. They make the patient feel very secure and well attended at all times. Very personable!
