Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that replaces a tooth’s damaged or infected pulp with a filling. The pulp is the tooth’s lifeline. Its vessels, tissue fibers and nerves in the central hollow of the tooth keep it alive. An endodontic treatment is the procedure to replace the damaged or infected pulp.

If you wear dentures, you’re probably well acquainted with the various ways in which they can hamper your freedom of expression and your quality of life.

Missing teeth can leave you feeling so embarrassed that you cover your mouth or look away from others when you speak. It can cause anxiety and cause you to isolate yourself from others. If you’re missing a tooth due to injury or decay, it’s important to address it as soon as possible. Even if you’re not concerned about cosmetics, having a full set of teeth is essential to maintaining good oral health. Missing teeth can result in bone loss in your jaw or cause your remaining teeth to shift to fill in the gaps, leaving you with further complications from a misaligned bite.

Has your dentist recommended that you get a temporary filling? You may be wondering why this would be necessary and a permanent filling wasn’t put in right away.

Veneers are an ideal solution for people looking for a smile makeover. Made of porcelain, veneers are a very thin painless treatment to achieve permanently aligned whiter teeth. Veneers are bonded to the front of the teeth, changing their color, shape, size, or length. Veneers can even be placed over existing crowns or bridgework transforming teeth into a natural looking smile.

What is a root canal and how do I know if it is infected?

Root canal refers to the hollow space within the root of the tooth that’s filled with soft tissue and nerves (also called pulp). When the pulp becomes infected it can cause extreme tooth pain and it can lead to tooth decay. To eliminate the pain and discomfort, your dentist will perform a procedure called a root canal. It’s a very common dental procedure where the inflamed or infected nerves and tissue are removed to avoid the infection from spreading to surrounding teeth.

When you’re missing one or a few teeth, it can affect the health of your entire mouth. As you rely on your remaining teeth to do all the heavy lifting, they may begin to wear out prematurely or even crack. Having a missing tooth can impact your bite, your speech, and you may even experience headaches or jaw pain. With this in mind, it’s important to replace a missing tooth before your oral health deteriorates further. But which treatment is appropriate for you? In the past, a dental bridge was your only choice. Now, dental implants provide patients with a more comfortable solution that can last a lifetime. Here’s a closer look at the difference between the two options.

The choice between getting a dental implant vs crown will depend on the severity of decay or trauma, your desired results, your budget, your health, and other factors you can discuss with your dentist. Here’s a general overview of the two treatments to get you started:
