Root canal infections are often caused by deep tooth erosion. Fortunately, although this means that patients typically cause their own chompers to wear down, this also means that you can have a hand in foiling the need for a root canal procedure. Here are a few things that you can do at home to prevent your need for root canal service from our office.

Because the cause of root canal treatment is deep tooth decay, stopping tooth breakdown should be your prime target. To minimize the effects of damaging acids chomping away at your chompers, brush your pearly whites with fluoridated toothpaste at least two times a day. Extract leftover food and debris from your oral cavity at least once daily by using floss, and ensure that you’re getting a checkup from our office at least once each half of a year. Another cause of root canal treatment is dental trauma, so if you play contact sports, wear a mouthguard to guard yourself.
