Importance Of Routine Checkups

Routine checkups are one of the most effective ways to maintain good oral health. When you have a healthy mouth, you’ll enjoy more than a beautiful, pain-free smile. Good oral health also reduces your risk of developing a host of other health problems including heart disease, high blood pressure, and strokes.

If we spot anything that concerns us during your routine checkup, we’ll discuss your treatment options with you. We can resolve minor problems immediately, before they become more serious. We may need to schedule a return visit with a dentist for any restoration work or refer you to a dental specialist for more complex concerns.


Sometimes, despite routine dental visits, tooth decay occurs. If you are experiencing pain or sensitivity in your mouth, tooth decay may be to blame. Filling a cavity created by tooth decay can save you pain and money in the long run. Fillings seal up cavities and prevent tooth decay from causing further damage. If left untreated, tooth decay can travel to the nerves of your root canal. This decay can cause intense pain and irreparably damage your tooth.

Our dentists will remove the damaged portion of your tooth, clean it carefully, and fill the cavity with composite (plastic) resin. Using composite resin, rather than traditional silver or amalgam fillings, allows us to retain more of your tooth’s natural structure. We offer subtle porcelain and bold gold inlays so that you can get the look you want. Light therapy helps the filling harden in place. We shape and polish the filling until it feels smooth, just like a natural tooth.
Sometimes fillings do wear down over time. We’ll monitor your fillings during your routine checkups and replace them with new fillings if required.

Root Canals

Root canal treatments are part of the services that your Richmond restorative dentistry team offers. Root canals helps to restore a tooth or teeth with infected roots. Most root canal cases can perform this procedure at the clinic. If we inspect the tooth and discover specific, advanced treatment is needed, we can refer you to a specialist in our area with whom we have a close relationship.

A root canal is an endodontic treatment for a badly decayed tooth. The root word endo is a Greek word for inside, and a root canal is a type of treatment for the inside of a tooth. The pulp, or the tissue inside the tooth, includes the blood vessels, the nerves, and the connective tissue. The pulp is essential while a tooth grows and develops, but once it is mature, a tooth can survive without it.

When the soft tissue or the pulp inside the root of a tooth becomes infected or inflamed, it can cause pain and lead to additional dental and health problems. Since a root canal removes this damaged tissue in the tooth, the tooth can function as normal. If you don’t get a root canal when there is an infection in a tooth, the infection can spread and lead to additional health problems, including abscessed teeth and damage to the bone surrounding the teeth. As a result, it is important to get a root canal when your dentist recommends this treatment.

During a root canal procedure, a dentist takes out the infected pulp from inside the tooth. The dentist will fill the tooth and restore it with a crown to protect it and allow it to function like a regular tooth.
