To Make An Appointment
A dental implant is used to replace a tooth that is missing.  A metal screw is inserted into the jaw bone and a crown is placed onto the screw. A dental implant is stronger and can endure more pressure than a bridge.

Root Canal

A root canal is the removal of a nerve from the tooth. Each tooth has at least one nerve that runs through the tooth and connect to the gum. The nerve is the life source of the tooth. If the nerve becomes infected or exposed (due to decay or structural damage), it can be very painful. A root canal removes the nerve and fills the nerve cavity with composite material. While the removal of the nerve relieves the patient of pain, it also removes the life source of the tooth. A tooth that has a root canal done on it almost always needs a crown to be places as well to reinforce the strength of the tooth.

Veneers are porcelain “caps” that cover the natural tooth. While similar to a crown, veneers are typically used for cosmetic purposed and placed on the teeth you see in the mirror when you smile. They can be a great way to improve the look and shape of the teeth.
Invisalign® straightens your teeth using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. They gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is completed. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference to your daily life.
An extraction is the removal of a tooth. There are simple extractions which are typically teeth that have broken through the gum line (can been seen in a mirror). A surgical extraction is when the dentist needs to cut the gums and tissue surrounding the tooth to remove it. There are also other types of extractions that require a specialist to remove the tooth. If that is the case, your dentist will refer you to an oral surgeon.
Crowns and Bridges
A dental crown, sometimes referred to as a cap, is used when a tooth has large amount of decay and is at risk of breaking. Once the dentist removes the decay from the tooth, there may not be enough good bone left to support the daily stresses of chewing, clenching or grinding. In order to prevent the tooth from breaking, and requiring removal, a crown is placed on top of the remainder of the natural tooth. Crowns are typically made of metal or porcelain. A crown will fill in the missing tooth structure so that remaining natural tooth is protected from the stresses of eating, clenching or grinding.

Dentures and Partials
Dentures and partial dentures are used when there are numerous teeth, or all teeth, need to be replaced. Partial dentures vary depending on the number of teeth missing as well as where in the mouth they are missing. A full denture contains all of the teeth for the arch (top of the mouth or bottom of the mouth) where it is being placed. A denture should fit securely over your gums and remain secure throughout daily activities.
