Dental Procedures

Crowns and Bridges. When decay gets too big to support a standard filling, crowns are needed. Other reasons for crowns are fractured teeth and root canals. Anytime a tooth cannot support a standard filling without the risk of fracture, a crown is necessary. Like a small twig void of vital sap, a tooth without the vital pulp becomes brittle. Therefore, root canal teeth are recommended to be crowned. Bridges are simply crowns fused together to span a gap where a tooth is missing or has been removed. Crowns and bridges are great treatment options to maintain the health and appearance of your smile.

Root Canals. When bacteria enters the pulp it thrives and destroys the tooth. This damage is irreversible. The pulp is then removed with the tooth (extraction) or removed while leaving the tooth (root canal). It is my attempt to avoid root canals when at all possible. However, when necessary, a root canal can preserve a tooth in the mouth for many years with safe and reliable results.

Tooth Extractions. Most dental extractions, including wisdom teeth, are performed in office. With only few exceptions, is a dental extraction referred out to a specialist. It most cases, following tooth removal, bone grafting is recommended. We offer artificial, bovine, and donor bone to preserve necessary support for future bridge, implant, or removable dentures.
