Frequently Asked Questions
Dental X-rays provide detailed images of your teeth, mouth, and jaw. It’s a diagnostic tool that’s used to show certain issues that can’t be seen with the naked eye. Some of which include cavities, impacted teeth, tooth decay, and bone loss. X-rays give off a low level of radiation to capture the images of your mouth.
Some patients are unaware that they suffer from gum disease until it advances to a more serious stage, commonly known as periodontitis. There are several symptoms that may indicate that you have gum disease, such as:
- Red or swollen gums
- Gums that bleed
- Painful gums or teeth
- Loose teeth
- Bad breath
- Receding gums
Before the procedure, Dr. Berchelmann will numb your tooth and surrounding area to ensure you won’t feel a thing. You may experience some sensitivity and discomfort following root canal therapy. However, this should subside within a few days and can be managed by taking an over-the-counter pain medication and applying a cold compress.
To maintain good oral hygiene, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste when brushing your teeth at least twice a day. We also recommend that you floss daily and rinse with mouthwash in between meals. It’s also important to schedule dental check-ups and professional teeth cleanings every six months, or twice a year. This allows us to help maintain healthy teeth and gums for years to come.
