Every tooth in a man’s mouth is more valuable than a diamond on his head, and your dentist is your safe keeper. Dentistry is more about relationships and building trust. When you come to us at Alliston Smiles Family Dentistry, we treat you like our family. We try to do what’s best for you, listen to you, and try to take care of your needs. Speaking of trust, we would like a talk about a few facts and myths related to teeth and dentistry:
Fact or Myth:
If you have a cavity you will know it: Myth.
Mild tooth decay has no symptoms. Sensitivity begins to occur when tooth decay is already causing damage to the nerve (Pulp). Fillings are done for the same purpose of preventing the permanent damage to the nerve and thereby avoiding more invasive and expensive procedures like Root Canals and Extractions. Our dental services in Alliston also prevent tooth decay with sealants and other conservative methods.
Sugar is the prime cause of cavities: Fact and also a Myth.Even though sugar is the main culprit, Acids and carbohydrates as a whole do the same damage to the teeth and cause cavities. Keeping a track of PH in foods is important!!
Cavities are the prime reason for root canal: Fact and a Myth.
Root canals are a result of nerve(Pulp) damage. An untreated cavity could lead to nerve damage, but root canals are onset by a number of different factors.
Brushing and flossing are the best ways to prevent cavities: Oh yes, we know that you know, that this definitely is a fact.
