Regular comprehensive oral examinations are the best way to maintain dental health. By taking a preventative approach, many oral diseases can be entirely avoided.
Fillings are when your dentist replaces part of your tooth. This is most often due to it having developed decay, or part of it having broken away.
Root canal treatment involves the cleaning out then sealing of the inside of a tooth. This approach often allows a tooth to be saved, rather than removed.
Crowns are custom made to fit your tooth. They are glued into place and structurally reinforce the tooth. Your dentist may suggest a crown when so much of the tooth is missing that a simple filling won’t suffice.
