Comprehensive & Preventive Dentistry
When you have healthy teeth, it’s easy to take things like eating, talking, smiling, and laughing for granted. However, if you’ve lost healthy teeth, you know how embarrassing and uncomfortable these simple pleasures can become. Restorative dental treatments can make these everyday acts easy again! Dr. Jaeger will work with you to determine which restorative dental treatments will work best to help you regain your smile.
With endodontic treatment, also called root canal therapy, we carefully remove the diseased tissue and nerve from the tooth and gently clean and seal the root canal to protect it from bacteria. If necessary, medication or an antibiotic can also be used to control the spread of bacteria and stop infection. Finally, a crown is placed over the reshaped tooth to restore and strengthen it. Relief from the pain of an infected tooth is an immediate advantage to root canal therapy. Long-term benefits include saving your natural tooth and avoiding damage to the surrounding bone.
