Crowns & Bridges

Crowns and bridges are fixed devices cemented on to existing teeth or implants. A crown is used to cover or “cap” a damaged or weak tooth. Porcelain or ceramic crown can be matched to the color of your natural tooth to ensure its natural looks.

A crown is recommended to:
– Replace a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining.
– Protect a weak tooth from fracturing.
– Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth.
– Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment.

Gaps between teeth do more than just harm your overall appearance. It can collect bacteria, plaque and other material over time and can cause serious oral health problems. At Westwood Dental Clinic, we can help you bridge those gaps! Contact us today to find out more information about crowns and bridges!

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal therapy is a critical dental treatment for many patients with dental decay. Root canal therapy can save the health, appearance, and functionality of a damaged tooth. Without this important treatment, one infected tooth can cause rampant infection throughout the mouth—affecting other teeth, gum tissue, connective tissues, and bone.

How does the treatment work?

A root canal endodontic procedure works by creating a small hole in the tooth to remove all of the infected areas. The dental pulp is removed, and oftentimes so are the roots. You only need your tooth roots to feel sensations like hot and cold and for the tooth to grow. Once it has fully matured, removing the roots will not directly harm the tooth. It can, however, prevent the further spread of infection. Once done, we will clean the area to ensure that the infection is gone. Dr. Park will typically prescribe antibiotics to ensure any lingering infection is eliminated.

In order to complete the procedure, we will seal up the hole with gutta-percha; a rubber-like substance that can help to stabilize the tooth. We will use a filling or crown in order to further strengthen and protect the damaged tooth. Both fillings and crowns are created in a tooth-color to blend in with the surrounding teeth.
Symptoms to decaying tooth:

• Moderate to severe lingering toothache pain when consuming hot or cold liquid/food
• Moderate to severe pain when biting on a tooth
• Sensitivity to tapping or pressure on the tooth
• A toothache that wakes you up in the middle of the night
• A pimple on your gum that may release pus or blood
• Radiating pain from one area of the mouth to another

If you think that you may have these symptoms contact us today to book an oral examination!

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

With an oral examination and x-ray of the mouth, Dr. Park can evaluate the position of the wisdom teeth and predict if there are present or future potential problems. Wisdom teeth can break partway through your gums, causing a flap of gum tissue to grow over them. Food and germs get trapped under the flap and damages the gums.
Wisdom tooth removing is effective in preventing:
• Crowding of the teeth
• Cyst Formation
        – Non-infectious disease arising from an impacted wisdom tooth.
        – Cyst formation can slowly expand destroying adjacent jaw bone and teeth
There are many risks leaving a wisdom tooth unexamined. If you have any concerns about a wisdom tooth, contact us today to book an oral examination!
