Periodontal therapy includes care for the gum and bone structures that support your teeth. Toxic bacteria from plaque can cause periodontal disease, also known as gum disease or gingivitis. If untreated, this can cause you to lose your teeth, and the breakdown of your soft tissues and bone, among other serious health problems. Through periodontal therapy, we can restore your gums and supportive tissues and prevent further damage.
Root Canal Therapy
Trauma can cause damage to the nerve tissue inside your tooth. A root canal is sometimes needed to remove the infected and inflamed tissue, or pulp, from the root canal. Dentistry U will fill the canal with an inert material and the procedure is completed with the placement of a filling, or in some cases, a crown. Despite what you might have heard, the pain involved during a root canal is minimal, especially compared to the pain and discomfort you may feel before the procedure. Dentistry U takes advantage of the latest advances in technology and dental techniques to make your root canal procedure more effective and take less time.
Minor tooth decay, or cavities, can sometimes require a filling to prevent further destruction of the tooth. Traditionally, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed in the cleaned-out portion of the tooth. Now an undetectable, tooth-colored, resin filling is used to repair your tooth.
The stress of the everyday can make you grit your teeth or clamp your jaw at night. This strain can cause your teeth to break, chip or crack, pain in your jaw the next day and headaches. A custom-crafted nightguard can help eliminate these issues. Also, if you have had your smile made over with veneers, crowns or bridges, Dentistry U may have you wear a nightguard to protect your smile.
NTI is a system designed to eliminate tension and stress on your teeth to prevent you from grinding your teeth together. This device, worn primarily at night, is small and fits snugly between your two upper front and two lower teeth. The end result is reduced headaches, minimal wear on your teeth, and protection from chipping and breaking due to grinding.
