Root Canal

Root Canal

What is root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment is the removal of the nerve and blood vessels of a tooth for the purpose of trying to save the tooth from extraction. A simple analogy is removing the wick from a candle. The void where the wick was is cleaned and smoothed and then we place a rubber type material into the cleaned out space to seal the canal.

Dr. Ellis and his staff are very accommodating! Dr. Ellis treated me for an infected tooth , followed by an implant. He made sure we understood what needed to be done and why - not just telling us. It went so well, and he was so nice - definitely our new family dentist.

Implants

Implants

A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into the jawbone. One or more missing teeth can be replaced by attaching a crown, a fixed bridge, or a full set of dentures on top of the implants. The implant material, which is typically pure titanium, is extremely biocompatible since the bone treats the implant just as if it were bone. The effect is that the bone cells attach themselves to the implant and the interface between the bone and the implants is termed osseointegration.

Lumineers a terrific cosmetic solution for permanently stained, chipped, discolored, misaligned teeth, or even to revitalize old crown and bridgework.

Lumineers are a porcelain veneer that can be made as thin as a contact lens and is placed over existing teeth without requiring painful removal of sensitive tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers.)

Restorative

Restorative

Fillings

After diagnosing the problem and devising a treatment plan, the next step to restore a tooth to health is to make you comfortable. We give you a local anesthetic so you do not feel any discomfort. After the decay is removed, the tooth is designed to receive either a direct restoration or an indirect restoration.
