NASHVILLE, Tenn. - It's a trip most people try to avoid: the dentist's office. More research is pointing to reasons to book your appointment. Janet Powell found herself in the hot seat with the endodontist, needing help beyond normal dentistry when a root canal was required due to a cavity. Sheats Endodontic Group specializes in root canals. Dr. J. Sheats says though the procedure is done within an hour or so, with little to no pain, it's something you want to avoid.

IT sounds simple, but not doing these things could lead to even bigger health problems throughout your body. Janet says she was in and out of the chair and out of pain that day. After meeting with Dr. Sheats, she's changed her diet, tries to brush 3 times a day, and flosses twice daily. Dr. Sheats recommends checkups twice a year with your regular dentist in order to maintain the right balance of bacteria in your mouth.
