Dental Implants 2 Dental implants are a fantastic solution for replacing missing teeth that have been lost due to injury decay or any other reason. After surgically attaching the implant to your jaw bone an artificial tooth is attached to the top of the implant. This creates a natural looking replacement for your missing tooth. Implants are stable strong durable and virtually undetectable. In cases where more than one tooth is missing several implants may provide a base for a series of artificial teeth. This is known as a fixed bridge. Implants can even be used to secure a full set of removable dentures for people who no longer have their natural teeth greatly improving one’s chewing ability.

Root Canal Therapy 3 Root canal therapy is an excellent way to save a decayed tooth that would otherwise die and need to be removed. Root canal therapy can solve your chronic pain issues and stop the infection from spreading to other teeth. Every tooth has a pulp chamber inside it that holds the nerves and blood supply for your tooth. When the pulp becomes infected this infected pulp needs to be removed from the center of your tooth and the canals of each root. Once the infected pulp has been removed the remaining chamber is filled in with a rubber-based material which seals it off. Your tooth is then protected with a tooth-like artificial covering known as a crown see crown section. This is a necessary protective measure because teeth that have had the pulp removed are more susceptible to fracture. The only real alternative to root canal therapy is to remove the sick tooth. However this will require a dental implant or bridge to fill the empty space and prevent surrounding teeth from shifting. These solutions will ultimately cost more than the root canal therapy and they won’t equal the quality of keeping your natural tooth.

Protective Sealants 4 Protective sealants are an excellent way to protect chewing surfaces of teeth from decay. Sealants can stop small amounts of decay from growing larger often preventing the need for fillings or more elaborate costly dental work. The chewing surfaces of your back teeth contain normal pits and grooves which can trap food that can’t be removed by brushing or washed out by water or saliva. When food remains trapped there decay begins to form. A sealant is a durable plastic material designed to bond to your tooth enamel. We paint these clear or tooth colored sealants onto your tooth surface “sealing” the pits and grooves and protecting against decay. They are generally applied to children’s first permanent back teeth. In certain situations they can be useful for adults as well.

Periodontal Disease 5 Gum disease Periodontal Disease is the reason for approximately 70 percent of adult tooth loss. Plaque saliva and bacteria get stuck inside the space between the gum line and the tooth which causes the gums to become swollen and inflamed. If it is not removed the plaque will harden into a substance called calculus or tartar. There is bacteria in the tarter and the plaque and over time this bacteria will eat away at the fibers that hold the gums to the teeth creating deep pockets. As the bacteria spreads the pockets become even deeper until the bacteria eats away the bone holding the tooth in place. We diagnose gum disease by measuring the depth of the pockets around each of your teeth. Pockets that are greater than 3 millimeters in depth generally require treatment as that depth or greater is considered hazardous.
