Dental fillings are our way of dealing with cavities. When you miss a spot on your teeth for long enough, the bacteria that live in your mouth will buildup and produce an acid that eats away at the surface of your teeth. If we don’t remove cavities from your teeth promptly, eventually the cavity will spread, and the tooth will die and need to be extracted. Today we use a composite resin to match the color of your teeth exactly when we place a filling. Composite fillings do a great job of saving your teeth and is durable enough to last many years, even decades.

When a tooth needs protection because it has suffered from extreme cases of physical trauma or decay, many times we can save it from extraction using a dental crown. Dental crowns are like little caps that look and function just like a real tooth that sits on top of your natural tooth.

Dental implants are the very best method of replacing teeth that we have today. Dental implants are surgically inserted into your jawbone and can support single tooth replacement or can be used in tandem to replace multiple missing teeth. When considering replacing missing teeth, dental implants should always be given some consideration because of how long-lasting they are and because of how much health they restore to the mouth.

Root Canal Therapy
When a tooth has a deep cavity sometimes the only way to save it is with a root canal. During a root canal, we remove the inner portions of the tooth and replace them with inert material, which helps our patients to avoid tooth loss.
