Fillings | Root Canals | Extractions

Dental Fillings
If the tooth has a minimal fracture, decay or damaged surface, a filling can be used to restore the tooth. We offer both silver amalgam and composite fillings. Our composite fillings have a white “tooth-colored” appearance.

A filling is a simple procedure in which our dentist removes the decay or damage, cleanses the tooth to remove bacteria and debris and bonds the filling material to the tooth.

In some cases, depending on the extent of tooth decay, damage or tooth sensitivity, the tooth may require additional or alternative procedures, including:

Dental Filling Cost
Our offices offer the area’s most affordable pricing on dental fillings – please review our fee schedule (hyperlink). Composite fillings with a white, “tooth-colored” appearance are more expensive than silver amalgam fillings since the materials are more expensive and require a more sophisticated process. Silver amalgam fillings are the most durable and last longer than composite fillings.

Root Canals
Root canals are an alternative to extraction and help you keep your permanent teeth. If the pulp inside the tooth becomes diseased or injured due to a deep cavity or cracked tooth, the pulp tissue dies. If the pulp is not removed, your tooth becomes infected (abscessed) and you could loose it. With a root canal procedure, your dentist will remove the pulp, clean and seal the root canal. If the tooth is weakened, your dentist may place a crown over the tooth to help make it stronger.

This is a relatively simple procedure and can be performed in one to three visits. Your dentist will use local anesthetic and special techniques to minimize discomfort and ensure that this is a pain-free procedure.

With an extraction, your dentist will remove your tooth. Extractions are most often recommended when a tooth can not be repaired due to decay or damage, the tooth blocks other new teeth from erupting or wisdom teeth are impacted. A simple extraction is when the tooth is intact and visible in the mouth. If the tooth is below the gum or broken off at the gum line, a surgical extraction will be required.

Our focus on pain-free dentistry helps make this a worry-free procedure. A local anesthesia combined with gentle extraction methods help minimize patient discomfort.
