Root canal treatment is a procedure used to save a severely decayed tooth from extraction. During this process, the nerve and pulp of your tooth are removed and the canal is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This treatment is extremely common and has a very high success rate. In fact, many people are able to resume daily activities the next day. If you’re feeling anxious about the procedure, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to make you feel at ease in the dental chair.
Treating a cavity with a filling is a common dental procedure. Once the decay is removed from the infected tooth, we’ll fill the remaining space to prevent future infection. We offer composite fillings, which are closely matched to the shade of your natural tooth for visual appeal. In addition to their flawless appearance, the composite materials chemically bond to your tooth and provide additional support.
If you’re looking for a non-removable solution for missing or damaged teeth, a dental crown or bridge may be an option for you. A crown is customized specifically for you and serves to cap a natural tooth that is severely decayed or broken. Once it has been created, it will be permanently cemented to the affected tooth. Bridges work similarly, but they’re used to fill gaps in your smile. A bridge consists of two or more crowns that are placed over the teeth surrounding the gap and false teeth that fill in the remaining space.
One of the most common ways to replace missing teeth is through dentures. This treatment provides you with a removable prosthesis that contains false teeth to complete your smile. Full dentures are used when you’re missing an entire row of teeth, while partial dentures are used when you need to fill a smaller gap. Depending on your treatment plan, dentures can be put in place with an extra-strength adhesive or connected to four or more dental implants. Either way, they are an effective way to maintain facial structure and restore a natural-looking smile.
