Everyone’s familiar with the basic dental check-up procedure –scaling, or scraping tartar off the teeth; polishing and fluoride treatments. Most of us have already experienced fillings and oral cancer screenings, too.
Crowns and Bridges
But crowns and bridges may be less familiar. Dr. Emad Morris puts in crowns, which are made of tooth-coloured porcelain or ceramic, to cap your damaged tooth. Bridges are artificial teeth made to fit in spaces where you’re missing one or more teeth. A bridge is held in place when the doctor cements it to your natural teeth on either side of the gap.
Root Canal Therapy
And what about root canal therapy? If you have a tooth whose pulp is damaged or infected, Dr. Emad Morris will drill to the bottom of the root chamber and clean out the whole area. Then he will fill the disinfected area and place a crown on top.
Dental Devices and Lasers
Dr. Emad Morris can treat snoring and sleep apnea, as well as bruxism (teeth-grinding) with dental devices made to fit your mouth. Soft-tissue lasers are a relatively painless way to treat issues such as extra tissue folds in the mouth or gum problems. Call us if you have any of these problems; we can help.
