If you experience tooth decay, we will treat your cavities in our office using the least invasive methods possible. Depending on the level of decay we see, we will offer dental fillings, root canals, or even extractions.
A dental filling is minimally invasive. For this procedure, we would clear out the decay and fill in the space with a tooth-colored composite mixture. For more advanced damage or decay, we may recommend a root canal. The root canal procedure clears away decay down to the tooth’s root. We can do a root canal to save your natural tooth’s root structure and then fit you with a dental crown to retain function.
However, tooth extractions are sometimes necessary. If you need an extraction, don’t worry. With modern technology, extractions are easy and painless. Plus, new tooth replacement options look and feel like natural teeth.
