There are several dental procedures that you may have heard referred to as "Dental Cleanings." Some of these procedures are performed to prevent periodontal disease from occurring (Preventative), while others are performed to either stop or reverse the effects of the periodontal disease process (therapeutic).
Your dentist uses root canal treatment to find the cause and then treat problems of the tooth's soft core (the dental pulp). Years ago, teeth with diseased or injured pulps were removed. Today, root canal treatment has given dentists a safe way of saving teeth.

If you have been told you have periodontal (gum) disease, you’re not alone. Many adults in the U.S. currently have some form of the disease. Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.

After undergoing this multi-step process, many patients find they have a better feeling, better looking, and more stable solution to their tooth loss than more traditional dental reconstructive approaches.
Dental bonding on the anterior or front teeth is an excellent method for repairing minor imperfections such as chips and stains. It can also be used to fill gaps between the teeth called diastemas. Although no cosmetic dentistry procedure can take the place of good oral and periodontal hygiene, dental bonding can brighten your smile quickly and easily.
There are several new treatments for gum disease, such as Atridox and PerioChip, and Arestin. These treatments destroy bacteria, which left untreated, will cause gum disease. The treatments are applied directly to affected areas and continue working over time.
Crowns and bridges are two restorative techniques that repair damaged or missing teeth. They restore tooth function and appearance. The use of crowns and bridges also avoids shifting teeth that can happen after a tooth is lost. By maintaining or restoring the patient's bite and their smile the effects of the tooth damage or loss are reversed.
Porcelain veneers cover the front of your teeth with a very thin, yet surprisingly durable shell. These custom-made veneers can cover space between teeth, or help cosmetically correct crooked teeth, teeth that have been damaged or are discolored or teeth that are not shaped as well as you would like.
