Root Canal Treament

Posted by DrMyersDennis | Filed under , , ,

Do you have teeth bothering you? Sensitivity? Having the root canal treatment could help save your smile! Dr. Dennis Myer's main goal is to maintain the health of our patient's natural teeth. Root canal treatment is the removal of the pulp, the important tissue for development of your tooth, and replaced with materials that seal the root canal from its support structures. Having this treatment could be anywhere from one to three office visitis. If there is a considerable amount of tooth loss, a metal or plastic rod-like structure could be placed in the canal of the tooth's root for extra support, and then covered with a crown. Crowns vary on what materials are used depending on the location of the tooth in the mouth. If towards the front, the crown is made to look like your natural tooth. If the tooth is more towards the back of the mouth, they make them with anything from gold alloys to porcelain or ceramic. The possibilities seem endless. Of course the prices vary with the different types of crowns.

How long the tooth with root canal treatment lasts depends completely on the care of your teeth. Good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are a necessity to keep the tooth healthy and from preventing any further decay.

What is a sealant?

Posted by DrMyersDennis | Filed under ,

Sealants are the #1 way of preventing decay for teens and children, and also benefit adults as well. It's a plastic material that is applied on the chewing surface of the back teeth. It acts as a barrier, protecting the enamel from plaque build-up and acid. Sealants become necessary when the back teeth are developing, because of the pits and fissures that form in the chewing surfaces of the tooth. The lack of ability for a toothbrush to reach down into the pits to clean them causes build-up of plaque and food that cause decay if not taken care of. Each sealants takes only a few minutes to seal and last several years before any reapplications are needed.

Check out Dr. Dennis Myers' webiste at or to schedule an appointment. Dr. Myers checks at every regular dental appointment for need of sealants and keeps them maintained until reapplication is necessary.
