Oral Surgery and Dental Procedures
If a pulp of the tooth is critically injured or diseased it can be saved through a root canal or endodontic treatment. The most common cause of pulp death is a tooth fracture or a deep cavity exposing the pulp to saliva, which can cause an infection inside the tooth. Treatment usually requires 1-3 visits in which the diseased pulp is removed and the pulp chamber and root canal(s) of the tooth are cleaned and sealed.
These are often the perfect preventive option for younger patients who are still learning to properly brush and floss their teeth, as well as adults with teeth that are overly susceptible to tooth decay. This tough plastic material works as a shield covering the deep chewing grooves on back molars so food particles and damaging bacteria can't accumulate there.
Extraction of a tooth helps to relieve pain in severely damaged unrestorable tooth
Wisdom tooth extractions - Wisdom teeth derive their name from the fact that they form in the late teen years, making them "older and wiser." In today's world, the softer diet and shorter jaw of modern humans have rendered wisdom teeth unnecessary. In fact, the onset of wisdom teeth can be a painful and potentially dangerous development. In most cases, a relatively simple and straightforward surgery can extract the wisdom teeth before they cause permanent damage to the teeth and mouth.
Many patients have heard horror stories about failed root canal procedures leading to even more severe toothache and other oral health concerns. In most cases, root canals fail in the very tip of the tooth root which can be difficult to access. By performing an apicoectomy, removing the tip of the tooth, we're able to ensure all infection is removed, and in many cases, this procedure allows us to save the root canal treated tooth.
Dental bridges - When one or more teeth are missing, the remaining teeth can drift out of position, which can lead to a change in the bite, the loss of additional teeth, decay and gum disease. When tooth loss occurs, your dentist may recommend the placement of a bridge. A bridge is one or more replacement teeth anchored by one or more crowns on each side.
A denture is a type of prosthesis that artificially replaces missing teeth and tissue in the oral cavity. Normally, they're considered to be very uncomfortable and unrealistic in regards to a natural smile. However, dentures have improved in recent years, giving patients who've experienced extensive tooth loss a natural look and feel. There are two kinds of dentures: full and partial. Depending on your teeth, our experienced doctors at Comprehensive Dental will evaluate whether all or some are in need of replacement.
