A root canal is a small channel inside your tooth that provides the tooth with nutrients. If it becomes injured or infected, you may lose the tooth. At Bayhill Dental Care we can remedy the problem & restore the damaged tooth, while ensuring that you are as comfortable as possible during the entire procedure. Nowadays, thanks to modern dental advances & technology, root canals are relatively pain-free. Don’t suffer needlessly, call us today for an appointment.
Ever been curious about what goes on during your dental care visits? With our intraoral cameras, you don´t have to be curious anymore! An intraoral camera is an indispensable diagnostic & educational tool. This tiny device is a video camera that moves around inside the mouth & generates a tooth-by-tooth video exam of the teeth. With the images produced by the intraoral camera, patients can see each of their teeth & dentists can indicate problems such as broken teeth, plaque, decay, gum disease, defective fillings & so on. Using an intraoral camera allows patients to better understand their dental needs by seeing what the dentist sees & then having it explained.
Sometimes it becomes necessary for a tooth to be removed because of crowding, disease or trauma. No matter the reason, we use a conservative approach with all tooth extractions. Our experienced oral surgeon with perform your procedure with expert skill to ensure the most comfortable recovery & the best possible result.
Do you have a missing tooth or a gap in your teeth that you’ve been meaning to replace? Dental implants are essentially permanent, attached teeth that replace partials, bridges or dentures & are a comfortable solution that blend in with your existing teeth. A titanium implant is permanently attached to your bone & a prosthetic tooth (crown) is attached to the implant to make it appear identical to your other teeth. Implants are preferred to bridges because they can improve your bite without damaging neighboring teeth (like a bridge might). Treatment can be finished in three to five visits over the space of about four to 12 months.
If you’ve lost teeth from decay, injury or periodontal (gum) disease, dentures are the solution. Whether you need partial or full dentures, they’re essential not only to improve the look of your smile but also your oral health. In addition to allowing you to eat as if you had never lost your teeth, dentures also protect against facial sagging that would otherwise occur & cause a more aged appearance. Dentures can also improve your speech. Denture maintenance combined with a regular regimen of proper brushing can guarantee you’ll lead a more comfortable & healthy life.
Please call us today to discuss whether dentures are the right option for you.
