Tooth Extraction Services
What is an extraction? It is the process of removing a tooth or parts of the tooth. This process is usually performed because the tooth has been damaged and cannot be repaired. To perform an extraction, our dental team first applies anesthetizes the area to minimize any discomfort. The tooth is then rocked back and forth using a specialized tool until it is removed from its socket.
Root Canal Services
The primary goal of our dental office is to save your natural teeth whenever possible. When root canal therapy is performed, the pulp chamber of the tooth is removed and then filled with a suitable filling material. Root canals are most often performed when decay has reached the nerve of the tooth or when the tooth has become infected. Through this process, we are able to restore the health of your tooth without having to remove it.
People have anywhere from one to four canals in a tooth. Extra canals may branch out and are called “accessory canals.” The number of canals and anatomy of a tooth can vary from person to person, but our dentists are trained to provide the right care for your specific mouth.
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening out your teeth. Metal braces have a reputation of being very uncomfortable, but Invisalign uses a custom-made series of aligners that are created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made using a smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that fits right over your teeth. As you wear these aligners, your teeth will begin to gradually and gently shift into place. This movement is based on the goals your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you.
Invisalign makes it much easier and more comfortable to straighten out your teeth. There are no metal brackets to attach or wires that need to be tightened. Instead, you just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete.
A great smile is waiting for you with little interference in your daily life thanks to Invisalign. Want to know what’s really great about using Invisalign? Most people won’t even know you are in the process of straightening out your teeth thanks to the nearly invisible look of these aligners. As a preferred provider of Invisalign, we’re happy to answer any questions you have about the trays and how to use them.
Not sure what veneers are? They are a great tool that can help you create a beautiful smile that looks like the ones on television and the movies. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are used to recreate the natural look of teeth.
To place a veneer, a very small amount of original tooth enamel must be removed. Afterwards, an adhesive layer is placed between the slightly prepped tooth and the veneer. The veneer is then hardened with a curing light and you can enjoy a white, bright, perfect smile.
