General / Cosmetic Dentistry

Endodontics (Root Canals) – Endodontics, most commonly known as root canal therapy, is the specialized dentistry dealing with the tissues surrounding the root of a tooth and tooth pulp. During a root canal the damaged tooth pulp (tissue inside the tooth) is removed, the canal is cleaned and sealed.

Oral Surgery – Oral surgery (extraction) is recommended for any tooth that is damaged beyond repair. It can also be used to extract wisdom teeth that are fully developed and those not yet above the gum surface.

Periodontics – Periodontic dentistry is concerned with the tissues surrounding our teeth, commonly known as gums. When plaque is allowed to build-up near the gum line, often between teeth, it produces toxins that begin attacking the gum tissue. When attacked the gums slowly soften, loosening their bond with teeth and causing the gums to recede (exposing roots) and inevitably causing the tooth to fall out.  This type of infection is known as periodontal disease, a leading cause of adult tooth loss.
