Root canal treatment is also known as endodontics. Root canal treatment is required when tooth decay has broken through the outer enamel and infected the heart of the tooth.
The goal of Brook West Family Dentistry is to try and save your natural teeth and avoid extractions. The reason for this is because removing natural teeth leaves gaps which then cause the other teeth to compensate. It can then affect your bite and cause a host of other affiliated problems.
But what happens when a tooth has become infected right in the center? Usually there is no avoiding an extraction, as the pulp is infected. Essentially, this means that the nerves at the heart of the tooth are slowing dying. Not to mention the fact that you will probably also be experiencing quite a bit of pain.
Under these circumstances, most patients want a quick fix – an extraction. While extraction may remove the offending tooth, it is not the best option in the long term. We prefer to try root canal surgery first. This way, the infection can be cleared and the tooth can be kept in place.

The first thing most people notice about you is your smile. Advances in cosmetic dental care have made it possible for a dentist with the right training, qualifications and expertise to completely redesign your smile.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Inlays and Onlays are tooth-colored restorations that are used in place of silver fillings on the chewing surfaces of back teeth. Unlike silver fillings made from metals that may cause further damage to teeth, these cosmetic fillings look extremely natural and typically require that far less of the tooth be removed.
Porcelain veneers offer the ultimate in aesthetics. A veneer is a thin facing or covering that bonds to the natural tooth structure. A much more conservative alternative to crowns; veneers can give you the smile you have always dreamed of and deserve.
The Cosmetic Dentists at Brook West Family Dentistry offer Lumineers®. These veneers are as thin as contact lenses. This means that in most cases, Lumineers® can be placed on your teeth without any drilling or tooth reduction and without the necessity of temporaries! While some minor polishing and enamel recontouring may be necessary, these veneers are done painlessly with no shots and it is a reversible, non-invasive comfortable procedure that is proven to last for up to 20 years.
