Root Canal Therapy
This treatment is required when the nerve within a tooth becomes infected or abscessed. Root canal treatment involves preserving the tooth by removing the infected nerve, and filling it back up with artificial material. This allows the tooth to stay in place, and is usually recommend over an extraction to prevent any future bone loss from occurring. It is ideal to also place a crown after the root canal treatment has been performed in order to maintain regular strength as the tooth has been “hollowed” and is more susceptible to breaking or fracturing.

Wisdom Teeth Removal
While not all wisdom teeth require removal, wisdom teeth extractions are most often performed because of an active problem such as pain, swelling, decay or infection, or as a preventative measure to avoid serious problems in the future. These are done in office under local anesthesia.
Tooth extractions are necessary for multiple reasons such as a preventative measure for future problems, if the tooth has been fractured under the bone, if there is crowding issues, or if there is a large amount of decay present and it cannot be saved by root canal therapy. These are done in office under a local anesthesia.
