Sometimes decay, a crack, or another dental issue can cause a tooth’s root canal to become infected, which can lead to a great deal of pain and may also endanger the entire tooth. Besides discomfort, you may experience significant swelling, tooth darkening, gum soreness, drainage problems, or even bone loss. In many cases, it is possible to save a majority of the tooth by cleaning out the infection and covering the remaining structure with a dental crown. Our dentists make this root canal procedure easy and comfortable for you.
Dental Extraction & Implants
Dental implants are man-made replacements for natural teeth after a dental tooth extraction. The implants themselves are artificial tooth roots anchored in the gum or jawbone, on which replacement teeth are permanently secured. Since implanted teeth are fixed in the mouth rather than being removable like dentures, they allow a return to the comfort and function of natural teeth. Increased chewing ability means you can enjoy more nutritious foods, contributing to your overall health and well-being. In short, dental implants improve the quality of your life. They can improve your appearance, boost your self-confidence, and allow you to speak with greater clarity.
Crowns cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped as well, or to cover a dental implant. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance.
If you’ve lost teeth from decay, injury, or periodontal (gum) disease, dentures are the solution. Whether you need partial or full dentures, they’re essential not only to improve the look of your smile, but also your oral health. In addition to allowing you to eat as if you had never lost your teeth, dentures also protect against facial sagging that would otherwise occur and cause a more aged appearance. Dentures can also improve your speech. Denture maintenance combined with a regular regimen of proper brushing can guarantee you’ll lead a more comfortable, healthy life.
