Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy

If you are experiencing advanced dental decay, it can cause severe discomfort and result in eventual tooth loss. Typically, root canal therapy is the best way to preserve your teeth and restore your health and comfort. We use modern techniques to provide gentle, comfortable treatment. To perform root canal therapy, the dentist will remove all decay from the outer structure of the tooth, empty your tooth and root canals, fill it with a rubber compound, and restore the tooth with a crown.

Periodontal Therapy

Many adult patients suffer from gum disease. The condition occurs when bacteria accumulates below your gum line. Eventually it could lead to tooth loss, gum recession, and bone degeneration. During your routine appointments, we will check for the early signs of gum disease and treat the condition before it causes widespread damage. In the early stages, it can often be reversed with a thorough cleaning. 

Scaling and Root Planing

When gum disease progresses to the more advanced stages, scaling and root planing may be the best treatment. During this procedure, also known as a deep cleaning, the dentist will eliminate the bacterial pockets from your gums. Your dentist will also smooth the rough spots on your dental roots where bacteria can accumulate. Your gums will be numbed before treatment to maintain your comfort. If you suffer with dental anxiety, we also offer advanced sedation options.

Oral Cancer Screening

When you come in for a routine cleaning, we will also conduct an oral cancer exam. Your dentist will check for any lesions, red spots, white patches, or other abnormalities on your soft tissues. If your dentist notes anything unusual, we will typically order a biopsy. These tests are extremely important because, with early diagnosis, most oral cancer patients have a good prognosis. Although most abnormalities turn out to be harmless, an oral cancer screening could save your life. 

Sealants and Fluoride Treatments

We offer sealants and fluoride treatments to our young patients, and adults can sometimes benefit from them as well. When your child’s adult molars erupt, we will typically recommend sealants. These plastic coatings form a barrier on the top chewing surfaces of teeth, preventing food from collecting in the deep grooves. Fluoride treatments strengthen your child’s teeth during development, preventing decay.

Mouth Guards

If you suffer from TMJ disorder, a mouth guard may be the most conservative and effective way to treat the condition. These devices properly balance your jaw while you sleep, and prevent teeth from grinding. We also offer sports mouth guards, which can prevent broken teeth and other dental trauma, especially during contact sports. Both our oral splints and sports mouth guards are custom-made to fit comfortably.
