At Parker & Pennington Dentistry, we want to do all we can to help our patients restore their oral health. If patients visit our office with a problem with their teeth or mouth, we will do all we can to diagnose the problem and create a treatment plan that is best for your long-term oral health. One treatment we may recommend is a root canal. This treatment often has a bad reputation because of the way it is depicted in movies and television shows. Following treatment, patients are often surprised at how easy the process was.
Our goal is for our patients to have optimal oral health and never experience a dental emergency. Unfortunately, as much as we would all love to always have amazing oral health, that is not always reality. One of the most common dental emergencies that we see in the office is a cracked tooth. There are many ways to prevent a cracked tooth, but the best way is to maintain your routine oral hygiene examination and cleaning appointments. During these visits, we will look for any problem areas in the mouth and recommend treatment. If we recommend treatment, be sure to schedule your appointment as soon as possible.
