"There are so many things we've talked about that you can use to help the process," explains Dr. Christie, "one being sedation dentistry, if you're really have a fear of the dentist."
According to Dr. Christie, the technology behind local and topical anesthetics has also improved allowing them to work more effectively.
When you have a cavity, the jump in technology when it comes to dentistry could make all the difference between keeping your infected tooth, or losing it.
"Many times we're able to save that tooth," explains Dr. Christie.
There are several techniques used in modern dentistry, to help treat cavities and protect your teeth including root canals, crowns and implants.
"It makes such a difference again," says Dr. Christie, "one tooth can make such a difference in the stability of your bite and how the teeth align.. and you're able to keep them!"
