Hi, I was wondering if there is anything that can be done to make your teeth healthier if they are not as healthy as they should be? I know the normal flossing, brushing, healthy eating and mouthwash but can i be doing anything more? I am terrified of dentists and have recently been for a checkup after about 10 years of not going. My teeth are not too bad, i have been told but i have a wisdom tooth that needs to come out( which has just broken on me). I have also had a filling fall out a few years ago but due to my fear did not get it sorted out but now the dentist says that the gum has grown up though the whole. My dentist says that it has to be removed but when i went for the xrays the dentist at the hospital said that i could have a rootcanal instead which would save the tooth. Apart from the gum thing the tooth is healthy and the roots and centre of the tooth are absolutely fine. How will a root canal help the gum issue? Thank you for taking the time to reply.
