For significantly damaged or decayed teeth, root canal therapy is often the best treatment option available. Root canal therapy allows Dr. Van Dyke to save infected or damaged teeth. This means that you can keep your natural tooth and you will not have to have the tooth replaced in the immediate future. You may be a candidate for root canal therapy if your tooth has:

Root Canals to Relieve Your Tooth Pains

  • Been traumatized or injured

  • An abscess or infection

  • A decayed pulp (inner tissue)

The treatment is completed in one or two comfortable visits to only a board certified root canal specialist (Endodontist). After the procedure, Dr. Van Dyke will place a custom dental crown over the tooth. This will add further protection to the tooth and enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Please contact our office immediately if you are experiencing any dental discomfort. We promise to do everything we can to see you quickly and improve your oral health and comfort efficiently.

Scaling and Root Planing (Gum Disease Treatment):  Periodontal (gum) disease is a degenerative disease that can significantly affect your oral and overall health. Beginning in the build-up of calculus and plaque on the teeth and gums, periodontal disease continues to destroy the gums, bones, and teeth in the mouth unless it is treated. When periodontal disease is left untreated, it has been linked to:

  • High blood pressure

  • Diabetes

  • Stroke

  • Heart disease

  • Pregnancy complications

At Van Dyke Family Dentistry, our hygienist offers scaling and root planing, two deep cleaning services, to help you return to optimal oral health. Sometimes the earliest stages of periodontal disease (gingivitis) can be reversed through a thorough dental cleaning and good oral hygiene at home. The best way to prevent periodontal disease is to brush twice each day, floss every day, limit snacks, eat healthy meals, and visit the dentist at least twice a year. If your gums are red, swollen, or bleeding, please contact Van Dyke Family Dentistry immediately as these are the signs of periodontal disease. Together we can change your oral health and smile for the better.
