Many people have anxiety about root canals, but in truth modern dentistry has made the procedure not significantly different from a cavity filling. Very simply, a root canal removes the infected soft tissue of the inner tooth and fills it with a material that is then topped with a crown or filling. Root canals stop the pain and discomfort of an infection while restoring a tooth to its original appearance and function. Root canals take only one or two appointments and often last for a lifetime. We ensure that our patients are comfortable before, during, and after their root canal procedure.
Why Orthodontics? Everyone wants a great smile, and orthodontics is a specialty in making your smile the best it can be. Straight teeth not only look good, but they also give you a good bite. Your upper and lower teeth fit together the way they should, so it’s easier to bite, chew, and speak. A great smile helps you feel better and more confident. It can literally change how people see you – at work and in your personal life.
Whether you have a broken or decayed tooth, or whether you simply need to have your wisdom teeth removed, we are here to help. We strive to make your tooth extraction or Dental Surgery experience as comfortable as possible, both by educating you and by taking care of you before, during and after the procedure.
