Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a treatment that saves severely damaged, infected and dead teeth from extraction. Inside every tooth is a nerve extending from the tooth roots into the centre of the tooth crown, the part that is visible in the mouth. It’s contained in something called the dental pulp, which also houses blood vessels. Your tooth nerve carries vital nutrients to teeth and is especially important when teeth are developing. Once a tooth is fully grown, it can survive without the nerve. Unfortunately, a tooth nerve can become damaged if the tooth is badly knocked, resulting in inflammation.

What Are the Advantages of a Same-Day Crown?

Have you recently learned you need a new crown for a tooth? It is a common procedure as teeth in Whitby can become damaged by trauma or have cavities that are too large to be mended with a conventional filling.

Living with Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign is a hugely popular way to straighten teeth because it uses clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible instead of metal braces. The aligners can achieve very good results when correcting numerous common orthodontic problems, straightening teeth and closing or minimizing unsightly spaces between them. If you have been considering Invisalign in Whitby, you’ve probably wondered what treatment will be like and the possible impact on day-to-day life. One of the reasons why Invisalign is so popular is because the aligners are very easy to live with, and any impact on everyday life is minimal.
