Advanced and Specialized Services
When patients come to our office, they often ask if they will receive a referral to a specialist in order to receive treatment. At Trinity Dental Care, you can receive most of your necessary treatment under one roof in the comfort and familiar surroundings of our Westwood dental office.
Most dentists refer patients to an oral surgeon for extractions and implant placement or to an endodontist for root canal therapy. Our patients receive those advanced treatments right here from our dentists.
We provide the best preventive and restorative dental care available in an effort to save your natural teeth. Sometimes, however, removing a damaged, decayed, or infected tooth is the best thing for your oral health.
In those cases, we offer tooth extractions and tooth-replacement options for our patients.
Having a tooth extracted can make some patients feel anxious. Rest assured that our entire dental team is committed to your health and comfort. From the time we diagnose your condition until your treatment is complete, you are our number one priority.
Once we remove your tooth, we will provide you with detailed post-treatment instructions to help you heal quickly and without incident. It is extremely important to schedule and maintain your follow-up visits so we can monitor your progress.
Root Canal Therapy
For most patients, the first sign they need a root canal is pain. That is often why the root canal receives a bad reputation. Root canal therapy actually reduces the pain caused by your symptoms and allows your body to heal.
Having an infection in your tooth is the main cause for needing root canal therapy. Swelling, sensitivity, pain, and pressure are some of the symptoms you might experience.
When we perform a root canal, we clean out the infection, as well as any diseased tissue, and place any necessary medication in your tooth to assist with healing. We will seal your tooth to protect it from re-infection and food particles. Once we complete your treatment, your body’s natural healing process will take over. We will continue to monitor your tooth and make sure it is healing properly and the infection is gone.
After a root canal, your teeth will need a permanent restoration. In most cases, you will need a dental crown (cap) in order to provide your tooth with added stability.
Are You Nervous about Your Extraction or Root Canal?
We know that some patients are apprehensive when it comes to dental treatment. That is why we offer sedation dentistry at our Westwood dental office. Sedation allows you to completely relax for your treatment so that it is stress-free.
Dentures and Partial Dentures
If you are missing some or all of your teeth, dentures can be an affordable and reliable way to complete your smile. We create high-quality dentures and partial dentures that look great and are durable.
We custom design your dentures to be comfortable and to look natural. The days of big, boxy denture teeth are over! Today’s dentures are more attractive and comfortable than ever.
For some patients, creating dentures that stay put can be a challenge. Our dentists are highly skilled when it comes to securing your dentures with dental implants. By placing several implants on your upper or lower arch, you can have dentures that lock into place. This helps you eat a wider variety of foods in order to stay healthy and to avoid embarrassing moments where your denture slips or moves.
Implant-retained dentures also have the added benefit of helping you to retain bone. Tooth loss often results in bone loss and can change the fit of your dentures as well as your appearance over time.
Our patients find that they have added confidence with implant-retained dentures. We complete the implant placement and denture delivery in our office for your convenience.Call to Schedule an Exam
