Endodontics is the area that works with saving a tooth. An endodontist works inside the tooth, with the pulp and performing root canals. If you have trouble with decay deep in your tooth, we can help!

If your dentist notices concerns with your gums and they need some attention, perio scaling may be recommended. Perio scaling works to remove all plaque, bacteria and tartar from your smile above and below your gum line. Keeping your gums healthy is essential to the future of your smile.

Dental implants are a lasting solution for missing teeth. Implant placement is the process of placing the post and abutment. Both of these steps in the dental implant process work to provide a safe, secure setting for the final crown. Implant placement requires some time for each part to heal and set before moving onto the next part of the implant process. Each step leads to the final result – a permanent restoration for your missing tooth!
Implant Final Restoration
The final restoration for a dental implant is the dental crown. A custom-made crown that is color-matched to your surrounding teeth will be placed once the abutment and post have healed and are ready to act as a firm foundation. This step is the most exciting, because you can finally see the results of all the hard work leading up to replacing your missing tooth. Once this step is complete you will have a restored tooth that blends in beautifully with your smile.
