DENTAL HEALTH PROTECTION
Regular Dental Hygiene Care is your first line of defence in maintaining dental health.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Sometime between late teen years and the early twenties, your third molars, or wisdom teeth may emerge. Often these do more harm than good and your dentist may recommend surgical removal advisable to prevent other dental problems such as crowding of your more important teeth. Additionally, they may be impacted (trapped in your jawbone or gums) typically because there is not enough room for them to grow properly.
Root Canal (Endodontic) Procedures
An oversized filling, gum disease, deep decay or severe trauma can be possible reasons for your dentist to call for a root canal procedure. Should the tooth pulp become infected, bacteria grows and eventually both the pulp and the bone can deteriorate and become abscessed. At this point a root canal is the only option available to relieve the severe pain that accompanies these conditions and still save the tooth from extraction.
Your dentist will explain each element of the procedure and you can be assured that your prompt return to full comfort is our main priority.
