Learn More About The Ways Our Glendale Dentists Treat Serious Dental Damage

by Dr. Mckay

No matter what your smile has been through, no matter what it looks like today, our Glendale dentists can help you achieve a smile you’ll be proud to show off for years to come. In today’s article, we are discussing important treatments we use in restorative dentistry cases. Let’s get started!

  • Root canal therapy: The purpose of root canal therapy is to save as much of the patient’s natural tooth structure as possible, while clearing away infected tissue. Basically, when dental damage extends deep into the tooth—into the dental pulp—our dental team will remove infected dental enamel, dentin, as well as the tissues and nerves that are in the middle of the tooth. Then, we are able to sterilize the remaining tooth and restore it with a custom crown.
  • CEREC crowns: CEREC technology enables our dental team to craft your custom restoration right here in our office. You don’t have to wait for your crown to be fabricated off-site, and bother with a temporary crown. CEREC restorations are made from high-quality ceramic; although this is a same-day treatment, these crowns are designed to last.
  • Dental implants: If you are missing teeth, it is imperative that you seek prompt treatment for both aesthetic and oral health reasons. Dental implant technology is unique because it replaces the whole tooth—not just the visible crown. These replacement teeth are help in place with titanium posts, which are permanently embedded in the patient’s jawbone. Not only does dental implant technology provide a stable, secure replacement tooth, it also helps support healthy jawbone density.

The best thing that you can do for your smile is to seek prompt treatment for any oral infections or dental damage. When left to linger, dental problems will only become more severe. Give our Glendale dentists a call to learn more!
