What Is Dental Pulp?
(http://ow.ly/lNmK30mYNh0)

The pulp is a soft area, located in the center of the tooth that contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. A tooth's nerve is in the "roots" of the tooth and root canals travel from the tip of the roots to the pulp chamber. If bacteria infiltrate the pulp chamber, this area sensitive area can become irritated and inflamed, leading to significant pain. A root canal is a procedure designed to remove infected dental pulp, providing relief while saving your permanent tooth.

At Houston Precise Dental Care, Dr. Eckford Jr. regularly performs root canals.

Does It Hurt To Get Dental Implants?
(http://ow.ly/xl4S30mYNgY)

No. Thanks to modern anesthetics and treatment techniques, dental implants are generally well-tolerated. Following your appointment you may experience some swelling, soreness, and general discomfort. However, these symptoms should subside within a few days and can be relieved by taking an over-the-counter painkiller.

Do Dental Veneers Require Special Care?
(http://ow.ly/h7Wq30mYNgT)

No. Care for your dental veneers like you would your natural, permanent teeth. Brush them twice each day, floss once every day, and visit the dentist once every six months. You may also want to consider using a fluoride-based mouthwash to combat bad breath and avoiding dark beverages like red wine to avoid staining.

What Is An Impacted Wisdom Tooth?
(http://ow.ly/7hmN30mYNgS)

An impacted tooth is a tooth that is unable to fully break through the gum line. This can occur as a result of it being trapped under gum or bone, or due to pressure from surrounding teeth. While some individuals have no problems with their wisdom teeth, oftentimes they cause more trouble than they're worth.

If your son or daughter is complaining of wisdom tooth-related pain, contact Dr. Eckford Jr. at Houston Precise Dental Care today.

Are Over-The-Counter Teeth Whitening Treatments Endorsed by The ADA?
http://ow.ly/F1lX30mDlNI

No. The American Dental Association does not endorse over-the-counter teeth whitening products with its Seal of Approval because the organization believes professional consultations are a critical component to safe and effective teeth whitening treatments. If you regularly brush and floss your teeth, but still can't seem to eradicate gray or yellow stains, teeth whitening is worth considering.

Dr. Eckford Jr. at Houston Precise Dental Care can provide you with a white, healthy, red-carpet worthy smile. Click on the link provided to request a consultation today.

Should I Use a Fluoride Toothpaste?
(http://ow.ly/TbVE30mDlNH)

Yes. When selecting toothpaste, make sure it contains fluoride. Fluoride helps protect your teeth from decay by fighting germs and forming a protective barrier around your teeth and gums.
