Hello, friends! I'm Dr. Dmitry Gorbatov, and today I want to talk to you about how to avoid root canal treatment. As a comprehensive and cosmetic dentistry practitioner for over 30 years in Hollywood, Florida, I have seen many patients who require root canal treatment due to bacterial load and infection inside their mouths. As a holistic dentist, I take every step to prevent this from happening.

To achieve this, I encourage individuals to visit the clinic at least once every three months, rather than the traditional six months or once a year that insurance companies may cover. Bacteria that cause decay and periodontal disease develop at an alarmingly fast rate, often returning within 55 to 75 days of a cleaning. Therefore, it is essential to visit for cleanings and bring the keys for cleanings at least every three to four months to keep your mouth in top shape.

Secondly, it is essential to identify the type of enamel present in your teeth. If the enamel is soft, individuals must take extra care with products that contain acid, such as juices, limes, lemons, and other items. Acid can dissolve the enamel, making it softer, which in turn leads to more rapid decay. Additionally, individuals should have a set of x-rays done every year to check their teeth and ensure there are no cavities between the teeth. These cavities are often difficult to detect during a regular dental exam. Therefore, those with large restorations or fillings should have x-rays taken to detect any decay between their teeth.

Finally, individuals should have at least two dental exams annually to ensure their mouth remains in excellent condition and free of any cavities. If there are any concerns, individuals should not hesitate to contact us, and we will do a full examination and set of x-rays to ensure everything is in order.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. We encourage you to subscribe to our channel and look and feel your best.
