If you have a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp in its center, you will need to have a root canal treatment in order to save the tooth. After you have a root canal treatment at our excellent dental practice, Colina Dental, it is important that you practice great oral hygiene in order to maintain the benefits of your Costa Rica root canal treatment.
When you come to our dental practice, you will be seen by one of our top-notch dentists, one of whom is Dr. Julian Conejo Gutierrez. If you have a toothache when you eat something that is hot or cold, or when pressure is placed upon your tooth, you most likely have a tooth that needs to be saved by a Costa Rica root canal treatment. During this treatment, all infected or damaged pulp is removed from the center of the tooth. The root canal system and tooth is then thoroughly cleansed and sealed. It is extremely important that you practice excellent oral hygiene following a root canal treatment to help ensure that reinfection does not occur. There are several ways a root canal problem can develop problems even after an excellent root canal procedure, and keeping your teeth clean will reduce the risk that the tooth will become re-infected. Since the tooth does not cause pain after a root canal procedure is completed, you will not know if the tooth is having any type of dental problems. If bacteria enter the tooth through a dental cavity, the only way it will be discovered is by a dental exam. You also want to make sure that your gums remain healthy following a root canal treatment so that the tooth can better stay in place. For all these reasons, you want to make sure that you carefully brush and floss your teeth every day after a root canal treatment.
