Affordable Root Canal Dentist in New Orleans LA
The root canal treatment is part of a bigger field called Endodontics. Endodontics deals with diseases of the tissues and nerves of the teeth. The most common Endodontic treatment is called a root canal therapy. During a root canal treatment the infected tissue inside the tooth is removed. A root canal allows you to retain your natural tooth. Our dental practice uses the latest technology for your root canal procedure. Your tooth is ”numbed ” initially so that you will not feel anything. Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) is also available if desired to relieve any anxiety. A typical root canal procedure can be performed in one office visit thus eliminating the need to see a different dental specialist. Call today to make a dental appointment at (504) 887-2428.
What does a root canal treatment and therapy involve?
Root canal treatment is completed in one or two office visits, depending on the presence of infection and the required treatment plan. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth. With good oral hygiene, the restored tooth from the root canal procedure has the potential to last a lifetime.
Best Dental Implants Procedure Dr. Drew Morvant DDS
Did you know that a dental implants procedure are frequently the best dental treatment option for replacing missing teeth? A dental implant is different because it does not rest on the gum line like removable dentures, or uses adjacent teeth as anchors like fixed dental bridges. Dental implants are a long-term tooth replacement option that your oral and maxillofacial surgeon surgically places in the jawbone.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
What are the types of dental implants are available?
Endosteal (in the bone): This is the most commonly used type of implant. The various types include screws, cylinders or blades surgically placed into the jawbone. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.
Subperiosteal (on the bone): These are placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework’s posts protruding through the gum to hold the prosthesis. These types of implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.
Am I good candidate for a dental implants procedure?
The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.
What can I expect after my dental implant procedure?
As you know, your own teeth require conscientious at-home oral care and regular dental visits. Dental implants are like your own teeth and will require the same care. In order to keep your implant clean and plaque-free, brushing and flossing still apply!
