Root canal treatment (also referred to as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy) is made necessary when the nerve, or pulp of a tooth becomes irreversibly injured or infected. This can happen due to trauma from an acute injury or a long term bite problem or when a cavity is allowed, through neglect, to reach all the way to the pulp.
Invisalign is an exciting alternative to traditional braces, using a series of clear, removable plastic trays to straighten teeth, instead of the traditional metal brackets and wires. The aligners are virtually invisible when worn, so no one has to know you're straightening your teeth.

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Complete dentures are used to replace all of the teeth in one or both arches (upper and lower). Dentures can be made to resemble or improve upon your natural teeth.

They are also a more favorable approach than bridgework since they do not depend on neighboring teeth for support.
A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay or trauma back to its normal function and shape. A filling also helps prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria can enter.
