At Dr. Sam W.S. Lee’s and associates clinic, we offer tooth extraction and root canal treatment to Orleans’ residents. Our skilled dentists understand that decayed or damaged teeth and gums can cause you great discomfort and excruciating pain. We will do our best to help you maintain optimal oral health.
Root Canal Treatment
The dental pulp is the innermost layer of the tooth and when it becomes infected or badly decayed a root canal treatment may be necessary to save the tooth. Usually, during a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form leading to more serious health complications.
The experienced dentists at our clinic will disinfect and drill a gap into the inner infected layer of the tooth, remove or reshape the diseased pulp, and the tooth is permanently sealed with porcelain, gold or tooth-coloured inlay/onlay or a crown.
Gentle Tooth Extraction in Orleans
The highly experienced dentists at our clinic are up-to-date with the most recent dental treatments that allow us to go the extra mile to save your teeth. If your tooth has suffered irreparable decay or damage, it will have to be extracted to lessen the pain and seal it from further damage. However, only in such cases when the roots are damaged, we may extract a tooth for a restorative dentistry procedure such as implants or dentures.
You can rest easy knowing that the extraction process will be a comfortable one at our clinic. Contact us now to schedule an appointment.
