Some of Our Services
Root Canal Therapy
What is a root canal? A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.
At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels and nerves that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums. read more…
Why would I need Endodontic Surgery? Generally, a root canal is all that is needed to save teeth with injured pulp from extraction. Occasionally, this non-surgical procedure will not be sufficient to heal the tooth and your endodontist will recommend surgery. Endodontic surgery can be used to locate fractures or hidden canals that do not appear on x-rays but still manifest pain in the tooth. Damaged root surfaces or the surrounding bone may also be treated with this procedure. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is an apicoectomy or root-end resection. read more…
What are dental implants? Although no artificial system is better than your natural dentition, implants can come very close to accomplishing this task. An implant is an artificial root system that is surgically placed into your jaw bone. After a period of stabilization the implant is then used as the base for placement of a crown. This will provide form and function of natural teeth.
Dental implants are usually made of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. read more…
