When Do You Need A Root Canal?

At Ackley Dental Group, we encourage our patients to visit our office for regular oral hygiene examinations and cleanings. Most patients should visit us every six months, with some requiring more frequent visits due to certain conditions. If we recommended a dental treatment during your last visit, it is important that you schedule your appointment in a timely fashion. Delaying dental treatment can significantly harm your oral health and cause you to need more extensive treatment. One treatment that can save your tooth is a root canal.

November Is Mouth Cancer Awareness Month

There are many holidays that we celebrate in the fall. Although it may not be a holiday you were thinking of, November is Mouth Cancer Awareness Month. This is an initiative that was started to make people aware of mouth cancer and the importance of early detection and treatment. Mouth cancer can affect all areas of the mouth, including the lips, cheeks, tongue, and gums. It can lead to serious complications, such as tooth loss, difficulty talking and eating, and facial deformity. One important reason we are so passionate about routine preventive care in our office is because it gives us the opportunity to check for signs of mouth cancer.
