The removal of a tooth from the mouth due to fracture, decay, and/or infection. Extractions can either be simple or surgical. A simple extraction is the removal of a tooth with elevator instruments and forceps. A surgical extraction is the removal of a tooth that can not be easily accessed. It requires an incision, removal of surrounding bone, and possible sectioning of the tooth.
Root Canal Therapy
The removal of the nerve tissue from the canal of the root of the tooth due to decay or infection. The canals are cleaned, shaped, and filled. Subsequently a build up and crown are placed on the tooth to protect the tooth from fracturing after the root canal therapy has been completed.
Dentures are devices used to replace missing teeth. Dentures can either be full or partial. Full dentures are required when all off the teeth in the mouth have been extracted. They aid in daily functioning such as eating and speaking. Partial dentures are used when a few of the teeth have been extracted. Partial dentures typically have clasps to help the denture sit securely in the mouth.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are a type of restoration that completely covers the entire tooth. Crowns may be warranted due to a fracture of tooth structure or decay that may compromise the integrity of the tooth. most crowns are tooth colored (porcelain) and can incorporate more than one tooth which would then be considered a bridge.
The removal of decay from a tooth and dental restorative material such as composite ( tooth colored) or amalgam (silver) is placed within the tooth.
Grinding, or bruxing, is often caused when the upper and lower teeth don’t fit together of slide past each other when chewing. Sometimes this will cause you to subconsciously or while you are asleep, grind your teeth to try to eliminate those areas that don’t mesh well. This, in turn, can cause toothaches, muscle, or joint pain. Often times we can make a splint that fits over the biting surface of the upper and lower teeth that will prevent the grinding and protect the teeth, which will eliminate many on these symptoms.

Implants are like artificial roots that are placed back in the bone. After they heal with the bone you can use them to replace a tooth with a crown on it or with several, anchor a denture or a bridge.
