Tooth Decay and Cavities
Cavities are holes in the enamel. They are caused when plaque collects on your teeth surfaces. Plaque is acidic, and over time those acids will wear away the enamel due bacteria that work their way into the surfaces of your teeth.
Fillings: smaller cavities that are easier to treat—and it is a less invasive process for you, too. We use high tech tools to clean out the bacteria and then seal over the opening with a natural tooth-colored composite material to keep away additional bacteria
Root Canals: bigger and deep cavities can easily turn into root canals also if any infection has gotten close to your tooth nerve. Our x-rays and professional and honest diagnosis of treatment that is best for you will help us determine whether a filling will suffice, or whether a root canal is the best option.
Mouth guards and Retainers
If necessary and through a comprehensive exam with our dentist, mouth guards or retainers may be an option for you. We can make and provide you with your own
