Pain while chewing and teeth that are sensitive to hot and cold temperatures can be signs of a damaged or infected tooth. Our dentists may suggest a root canal to clean and disinfect the damaged area and bring your tooth back to health. During your root canal procedure, your dentist will remove the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully clean and fill the canals, and then seal the tooth to protect it from further damage. A crown may be placed over your tooth to complete the restoration and give you back full functionality.
If your tooth has been broken or you've had significant decay that results in a large filling, a dental crown may be the restorative option for you. Crowns are custom-made to match the shape and color of your natural teeth, and they cover your entire tooth to protect it from further damage. Along with restoring and strengthening damaged teeth, crowns can also improve the appearance of your smile. With proper care, crowns can last decades.
Missing teeth can take a toll on your confidence and your overall health. To fill in the gaps that are left behind, our dentists may suggest a dental implant. An implant is anchored by a surgically placed titanium post that acts as a tooth root. Once the post is placed and has completely healed, our dentists will create a natural-looking custom crown that attaches to the post and acts as a replacement tooth.
