I believe strongly in helping my patients keep their teeth as healthy and strong as possible. Preventive dental exams, deep cleanings, and other minimally-invasive procedures are designed to minimize decay and disease. Early detection of cavities allows me to use smaller fillings that remove the bare minimum of healthy tooth structure.
A root canal procedure should only be performed when absolutely necessary. And unfortunately, in cases of advanced tooth decay, they are the recommended treatment and produce the best results.
If you’ve been told you need a root canal or have questions about how to prevent cavities and tooth decay, contact Green Dentistry and talk to Dr. Patel about your options.
