The fall season is finally here! With the fall season comes numerous joys and wonders that the end of the season festivities bring. However, it also brings with it many oral health hazards including numerous temptations that can damage your smile.

One of the biggest risks of the fall season comes in the form of tooth enamel damage via sweets and treats. Sugary snacks and sweets can severely hinder your smile by eating away at your tooth enamel. If a hole forms in the tooth, this is known as a cavity. Unfortunately, bacteria can enter through a cavity and cause infections and pulp damage. If the pulp of a tooth is damaged, it will either need to be extracted or be repaired with a root canal therapy.

Protect your smile this fall season by practicing effective oral health treatment, and making sure your smile is safe from sugars and other ingredients that can eat through your enamel. For additional help, visit your dentist for a biannual professional cleaning or oral exam. If you are too late to save a tooth from pulp damage, visit us for a root canal therapy so we can save the tooth from an extraction.
