Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a procedure we use to remove infected or dead dental pulp, which is the soft tissue located at the center of every tooth. It can often be damaged by either decay or injury, and when it is, it usually brings on the mother of all toothaches. Root canal therapy can quickly relieve this pain and allow us to save a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted.

Many patients are nervous about root canal therapy or even afraid of it, but there is no need to feel that way. Anesthetic and sedation make patients comfortable as we access the center of the tooth with special tools. Then, we clean out the diseased or damaged tissue and replace it with a special material called gutta percha. We often recommend that patients receive a dental crown following root canal therapy in order to protect the treated tooth.

Tooth Extractions

We strive to help our patients retain their natural teeth for a lifetime. Sadly, though, that is not always possible. In some cases, circumstances arise that necessitate the removal of one or more teeth. If you need to undergo a tooth extraction, you can be confident that we will handle your procedure with precision and gentleness, always keeping your comfort at the forefront of our minds. We also offer state-of-the-art tooth replacement solutions so you can regain a complete smile ASAP.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

The “wisdom teeth” are actually the third set of molars that typically erupt around the ages of 16-25, and for most people, this only spells problems for their smile. The modern human mouth often doesn’t have enough room for these teeth, so when they start to come in, they can put pressure on the other teeth, causing pain, crowding, and they can even become infected. Fortunately, we can perform safe and effective wisdom tooth extractions in our Newington office, and we’ll keep an eye on them so we can remove them before they cause you any issues.

Oral Surgery

In the case of certain dental emergencies, we may need to remove a tooth simply because it is too damaged to be restored. We’ll make sure you’re completely comfortable during this procedure thanks to local anesthetic and sedation, and we’ll immediately get to work helping you choose a proper replacement. In the end, we’ll make sure you never have to face the world with an incomplete set of teeth!

Sedation and Relaxation Dentistry

Does just the idea of going to the dentist cause the hairs on the back of your neck to stand up? If so, you’re far from alone! For our more nervous patients, we’re able to help them relax and enjoy comfortable visits thanks to dental sedation. This range of techniques is safe, effective, and can be used with just about any procedure you might need. Whether you just need to take the edge off or have avoided the dentist for years because of fear, sedation can help you finally get the dental care you need without the stress.
