Exploring Root Canals In Ahwatukee, Arizona
Many dental offices combine a variety of specialties under one roof. Patients used to have to visit the dentist, then make another visit to the endodontist for a root canal. Further, the orthodontist has always been in a separate office. It is a good idea to have all dental specialties under one roof. Patients should be able to get dental work completed quickly and conveniently.
Imagine Dental offers cosmetic dentistry as well as orthodontics, endodontics and periodontics. Endodontists are specialists who perform Root Canals in Ahwatukee, AZ. Root canals are performed to save a tooth that is decayed and/or infected. When a tooth’s nerve tissue or pulp is damaged, bacteria grows in the pulp chamber. Consequently, the bacteria forms an abscess. An abscess is a pus-filled pocket in the tooth’s roots. A tooth’s nerves can be damaged by deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the same tooth and a crack or chip in the tooth.
During Root Canals in Ahwatukee, AZ, the nerves and pulp are removed from the tooth. The dental cavity is cleaned, and the tooth is sealed. The finished tooth will be very weak and will require a crown. The state of the art Cerec 3D system allows crowns and other hardware to be made in the same day. Cosmetic dentistry in Ahwatukee, AZ, is very advanced. For instance, implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. They are made with 3D imaging and design software and anchored with four or six titanium points that hold them in place.
