Question:

Hello.
Thinking In the dentists never over whether root canals can be avoided by restructuring of the diet and their ways of life, as f.example,smoking, lack of exercise ?
I have had many root canals, they first as a teenager and since then have teeth just not been in order and is now falling apart in small pieces, fordii there is no longer enough tooth and no blood supply to the teeth.
There must be something that is better. Who besides I care for it.

With kind regards

Susanne

Answer:

Dear Susanne,

No it can not if the damage is already done and your nerve has been damaged. But the conversion of the diet is a good idea to avoid holes in the teeth.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards
