Endodontic - (Root Canals)
Endodontic treatment is the removal of the tooth's pulp, the inside portion inside of the tooth becomes inflamed or infected. The most common causes are deep cavity, a cracked tooth or repeated dental procedures to repair your tooth. If left untreated an abscess will form which can destroy the surrounding bone around the tooth causing, on occasion tooth loss. Abscess can also cause pain and swelling. A root canal simply removes the bad infection inside of the tooth and the remaining space is cleaned shaped and filled. A foundation s placed followed by a post and crown to strengthen and repair the tooth.
Children's Dentistry - (Pedodontics)
Tooth decay is increasing among the nation's youngest children. Primary teeth(baby teeth) usually come in at 6 months old and the last primary teeth falls out around 12 years old. These teeth are quite important for early child nutrition and to “reserve” space for the adult teeth. To say "They are just baby teeth, they will fall out, don't worry" is just not true.
Orthodontics - (Braces, Clear Braces, Invisalign)
Orthodontics is a specialty field that diagnoses, prevents and treats irregularities of the teeth and face. Orthodontics can also be used for cosmetic reasons. Orthodontics in the past involved only braces but now with newer technology braces are not needed. With Invisalign now patients can correct crowded teeth as well as close spaces or gaps between the teeth.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery - (I.V. Sedation, Wisdom Teeth, TMJ)
Young adults ages 17-25 typically have wisdom teeth that do not come in properly. Many wisdom teeth don't have room to grow(impacted wisdom teeth), resulting in pain, infection and other dental problems. After consultation with our Oral Surgeon patient will have most commonly questions answered such as:
- What type of anesthesia?
- How many wisdom teeth should I do at one time?
- How long will the procedure take?
- What to do prior to surgery?
- When can I go back to work, school etc.?
