Root canal infections are often caused by deep tooth corrosion. Fortunately, although this means that patients normally cause their own pearly whites to erode, this also means that you can have a hand in averting the need for a root canal procedure. Here are a few things that you can do at home to avert your need for root canal procedures from our office.

Since the root cause of root canal process is deep tooth erosion, stopping tooth breakdown should be your primary target. To minimize the effects of dangerous bacterial acids chomping away at your teeth, brush your pearly whites with fluoridated toothpaste at least two times per day. Extricate leftover food and food remnants from your mouth at least once a day by using floss, and make sure that you’re getting a checkup from our office at least once each half of a year. Another cause of root canal treatment is oral trauma, so if you play contact sports or extreme sports, wear a mouthguard to shield yourself.
