Root canal treatment is needed when the soft tissue (or pulp) inside your root canal is infected or inflamed. The infection or inflammation could result from a range of different causes including chipping or cracking of the tooth, severe decay or repeated dental treatment on a tooth.

Lasers can be used as a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures. There are several advantages. Dentists may not need to use a drill or administer anesthesia in some procedures, they can be more precise and they can also reduce symptoms and healing times associated with conventional treatments.
WISDOM TOOTH REMOVAL
Wisdom teeth are most commonly removed as there is not sufficient space for these teeth in your mouth. This lack of room causes the wisdom teeth to grow at different angles or they might not fully emerge. This eventually can lead to problems in the remaining parts of your mouth.
Metal-free fillings are eco-friendly fillings that match the color of your teeth. They have several advantages over amalgam fillings such as, less decay over time, they do not contract or expand due to temperature changes and they do not produce electrical currents. They are cosmetically appealing, highly comfortable and durable
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a dentist applies a tooth-colored resin material and cures it with visible, blue light. This ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth and improves the overall appearance of teeth, corrects chipped or discolored teeth and can be used to treat gaps between teeth.
Dental sealants are a treatment intended to prevent tooth decay. Teeth have recesses on their biting surfaces and these recesses are most vulnerable to decay, partly because food sticks in them and they are hard-to-clean areas. Sealants are materials placed in these recesses creating a smooth surface that is easy to clean.
Have you cracked a tooth? Cracked teeth can not only lessen the appearance of your mouth and smile, but can also lead to sensitivity, pain, discomfort and if not treated, a host of other dental problems. At Smile Dental Practice we have extensive experience helping patients with cracked teeth.
