Ever wonder why you need to floss? This is why!! This cavity started between the teeth where a toothbrush couldn’t reach. The cavity grew all the way down to the nerve chamber resulting in a toothache. By this point the only answer is to have root canal treament or extract the tooth. The moral of the story – floss your teeth and avoid painful situations! Here at your Newcastle Dentist we are committed to helping our patients avoid these situations. Our hygienist Elizabeth Hughes spends time with our patients ensuring their flossing technique is as good as possible in order to minimise the chances of a situation like this arising.
