Partials are for people who have lost teeth but still have some remaining. Metal clasps are present to hold the partial denture in.
Third molars, commonly referred to as wisdom teeth, are usually the last four of 32 teeth to erupt (surface) in the mouth. Wisdom teeth may come in sideways, only partially, or become trapped (impacted), leading to pain, infection, and gum line and facial swelling. If any of these conditions arise, it is important to have a thorough examination of the third molars. During the exam a Panoramic x-ray is taken in order to evaluate the position of the wisdom teeth and determine if they need to be removed. If extraction is recommended, Dr. Perry or Dr. Dan will refer the patient to a local oral surgeon.
Root Canal Therapy
A Root Canal is necessary when the pulp of the tooth, that is the soft tissue within the tooth, becomes infected or inflamed. Deep decay, repeated dental procedures, defective crowns, trauma, or a crack or chip in the tooth can cause such an infection. If left untreated, serious pain or an abscess may result. To prevent such problems, the damaged pulp is removed and the tooth is cleaned and disinfected.
