The term “root canal” strikes fear into the hearts of most people. The preconceived notion of a root canal involves severe pain, multiple dental visits, and eventual loss of the tooth in spite of everything.

However, this isn’t representative of root canal procedures at all. Advances in technology and general dentistry have made the root canal a much simpler procedure that most people describe as not being much more uncomfortable than a simple filling.

Conditions for a Root Canal

A root canal can become necessary when the interior nerve tissue and pulp of the tooth become severely damaged and/or infected. In these cases, this tissue must be removed. Some conditions that can cause a need for a root canal include:

Normally, during cold weather the lips become dry. Thus, it can be expected that chapped lips will likely to occur. It is quite hard to deal with these because instead of avoiding the act of licking your lips, you would likely do so due to the discomfort you will feel.

If you have dry and chapped lips as an offshoot of Angular Cheilitis, you have to immediately cure it so you would not have to bear with the pain much longer. When you have Angular Cheilitis, lip sores are present and these obviously hurt. Your lips would be dried and the corners of the mouth would crack, causing even more pain.

Everything that you feel is wrong with your teeth and your smile can be fixed. Therefore, you are absolutely a candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Many of today’s cosmetic dental procedures can be performed relatively quickly with superior results. So, if you are interested in having those stains removed from your teeth through tooth whitening, or have decided now is the time to have your crooked teeth taken care of, there is no reason you need to wait.

Several Kinds of Cosmetic Dental Procedures

Figuring out what cosmetic dental procedure you need is partially up to you when deciding what your ultimate aesthetic goals are, as well as input from your cosmetic dentist. Part of discussing this with your cosmetic dentist is obviously because they know more about the different procedures you’ve heard of, and may have performed many others you know nothing about. Another reason is that they are the best judge of what can and cannot be accomplished within reason. For example, if you have already tried tooth whitening and it hasn’t been much use, your cosmetic dentist may want to try in-office ZOOM! or custom take-home bleaching trays on you. Or you may want to discuss porcelain veneers, a quick way to fix staining, as well as gaps, crooked, chipped, or worn teeth.

Some amount of dulling and darkening of your teeth is just a natural part of aging. What we eat and drink and how we care for our teeth will affect how much staining and discoloration occurs on the outside of our teeth. Other factors, some beyond our control, can cause teeth to stain on the inside. Most staining can be corrected with http://www.softouchdentalcare.com/tooth-whitening.htm tooth whitening. Stubborn, resistant discoloration can be covered with other procedures, giving you beautiful, white teeth again.

Aging

As we age, the enamel of our teeth thins. When the enamel thins the dentin shows through. Dentin is yellow and as it becomes more visible your teeth lose their bright whiteness. Brushing and good oral hygiene cannot stop the dulling of your teeth caused by aging. Tooth whitening can reach and lighten the dentin.
