You can prevent plaque buildup and keep your teeth cavity-free by visiting the dentist and get your teeth cleaned twice a year, brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and cleaning between your teeth with dental floss daily.
Tooth removal (or tooth extraction) involves having one or more teeth completely removed from your mouth. Your dentist will usually remove your tooth, but sometimes a surgeon will carry out the procedure in hospital.
When the nerve of your tooth becomes infected, a successful root canal treatment lets you keep the tooth rather than having to pull it out. Keeping your tooth helps to prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line and causing jaw problems. Saving a natural tooth avoids having to replace it with an artificial tooth.
A frenectomy is the surgical alteration of a frenum which is a fold of tissue which restricts movement. In the mouth this is generally a small portion of tissue related to the upper lip, the tongue, or the lower lip.
