One of my main goals as a dentist is to ensure you have a healthy mouth, and I do everything I can to help you keep your natural teeth. Our teeth are designed to last a lifetime, but when they are not cared for properly or treatment is avoided, it can lead to the discussion of extraction and tooth replacement options.

This treatment gets a bad reputation, and we want to set the record straight on the truth about root canals. Read on to learn more.
Dealing with a dental emergency is never a fun time, and it can be a bit confusing to determine what requires an immediate trip to our office.

It is important to have a cracked tooth looked at as soon as possible to avoid serious oral health complications.
