If you have a small cavity, we treat the tooth by removing the decayed part of the tooth and replace it with composite, a white “tooth colored” filling, to restore it to it’s natural form and function. This prevents further decay and helps avoid a root canal, crown, or tooth extraction.
When a over half of the tooth structure has broken off, is destroyed by a cavity, has fractures, or following a root canal, a simple filling will increase the chance of breakage, so a dental crown is the necessary treatment to make the tooth stronger.
If a cavity grows deep into the nerve of the tooth, the nerve can get infected and root canal therapy is necessary to make the tooth healthy and pain free again. Root canals have a reputation for being painful, but they can be pain free and can take care of the pain right away.
Our preference is always to save a tooth, but if a tooth is severely decayed, has severe gum infection, or broken beyond repair, a tooth extraction is the only treatment option. We make it as painless as possible.
A good night’s sleep is essential when it comes to maintaining good health. Many people are not getting their fair share of sleep due to a condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea which leads to a reduction in airflow to the respiratory system.
