  3. 3. Fact For more details visit http://smilecareworld.com/myths-facts Pregnant women can and do undergo root canal treatment. Having a root canal does require a small x-ray, but the radiation exposure is very minimal and the x-ray is aimed at the mouth, not the abdomen area. If you are pregnant and your dentist needs to give you an x-ray, he will use a lead apron for protection. The anesthetics that dentists use are also safe for pregnant women.  Be sure to let your dentist know beforehand if you are pregnant.

  5. 5. Fact For more details visit http://smilecareworld.com/myths-facts Teeth are held firmly by the supporting tissues including bone. Bad oral hygiene results in the deposition of tartar /calculus on the tooth surface. These deposits irritate the gums and can cause inflammation and bleeding of the gums. If the tartar is not removed, the gums may recede and the supporting bone around the teeth gets destroyed. The tartar on the teeth thus causes great harm to the supporting tissues of the teeth. However, patients may experience slight mobility of the teeth after tartar is removed as it kind of binds the teeth together. Professional cleaning removes this tartar and arrests further destruction of supporting bone. Removal of tartar deposits only helps to recover the health of supporting structures. This chain of events does not take place in people who have dental checkup regularly.
