Dental Implants

Once removed, it is replaced with materials that seal off the root canal from its supporting structures. Years ago, disease or injured teeth were often extracted. Today, even if the pulp of one of your teeth becomes injured or infected, it often can be saved through root canal (endodontic) treatment. Learn More…

Complete & Partial Dentures
