What Should You Expect from a General Dental Checkup, Root Canal, or Invisalign?

When you are looking for a dentist, it is important to understand what to expect during your visit. A general dental checkup will include a look at your oral health overall, including diagnosing any problems and recommending appropriate treatment. If you have teeth that are bothering you and you are considering a root canal or Invisalign, be sure to speak with professionals at www.jacobsondental.com.au/cosmetic-dentistry/veneer/. Here are some things to keep in mind: 

  • A root canal involves removing the pulp (the center of the tooth) and the root of the tooth. This can be a complicated procedure and may require anesthesia. 

  • Invisalign is a type of dental braces that use clear plastic aligners to hold your teeth in place. The aligners are removable over time, so that you can have regular dental checkups and remove them as needed. 

  • There are several different types of root canals that your dentist may choose from. The type of tooth that has a problem will determine which method is best for you. 

  • If you have already had a root canal, it is important to be careful not to damage the nerve in the area where the tooth was removed. This can cause pain and other problems down the road. 

Your dentist will explain more about this process as well as how to care for your teeth after they have been drilled and filled with something called an amalgam filling. If you have any questions or concerns, contact your attending dentist or schedule an appointment at our office today.
