Many times when dentists talk about extractions, they’re referring to impacted wisdom teeth, which can cause discomfort, inflammation, infection, and even decay as they come into the mouth and push against other teeth. In cases like this—or in more extreme cases, where cysts develop around the wisdom teeth and jeopardize the health of the jaw bone—extraction will be the only viable option.But when it comes to teeth other than your wisdom teeth, performing a tooth extraction is something that Heron Park Dental would consider only after doing everything else possible to save the tooth, including root canal therapy. If the tooth has been traumatized, is badly decaying, or there is excessive loss of bone around the tooth due to periodontal disease and the tooth is very mobile, then the dentist may seriously consider removing the tooth to preserve the health of the teeth surrounding it, as well as your entire mouth.
Restorative dentistry is the repair or replacement of damaged or diseased tooth structures. our office is mercury free, we are using natural looking white composite restorations, porcelain inlays and onlays and full coverage crowns – all designed to restore your teeth to their original splendor.Our restorative services include:· Composite fillings .Crowns (caps)· Bridges· Dentures. Implants
Root Canal Therapy
Dental pulp, found in the center of each tooth, contains a nerve which extends from the tooth’s root to bring vital nutrients to the tooth. If a tooth’s pulp is injured, damaged, or infected, the nerve within the pulp will die and, unless endodontic treatment (root canal) is performed, the tooth may die as well. In many cases, root canal therapy (removal of the nerve tissue in the tooth) can save damaged teeth by preserving the tooth in the mouth. After the root canal is successfully completed, restoring the tooth with a crown is usually highly recommended to preserve the tooth structure and provide strength for chewing.
Named for the way that they “bridge” the gaps between teeth lost to trauma or decay, bridges restore your smile’s health and beauty by placing durable artificial teeth where your natural teeth are missing. If your missing teeth make you feel self-conscious, or you’re noticing problems with speaking, chewing, or other everyday tasks, ask Heron Park Dental if a bridge may be right for you. Created and only able to be removed by your dentist, bridges offer a comfortable, semi-permanent option that can enhance your smile and improve the health of your natural teeth.
If you’re interested in hiding tooth stains, fixing chipped or misaligned teeth, or simply creating a more beautiful and uniform smile, porcelain veneers may be a viable alternative to traditional crowns. Fashioned from a thin, strong material, veneers are intended to slide onto the tooth in order to create a beautiful, natural-looking smile that is easy to apply and long-lasting.
Traditional veneers are generally thicker, and thus require more aggressive and irreversible removal of healthy tooth structure. The extensive preparation technique frequently requires shots and anesthesia to minimize sensitivity and pain, and typically involves placement of acrylic temporaries for over two weeks between visits. The minimally invasive Lumineers technique typically eliminates the need for shots or temporaries, so while you wait for your custom-made Lumineers, you’ll look great and feel great. While many dentists offer veneers, not all dentists have been trained to deliver the signature benefits of Lumineers,
