There is nothing greater than being able to maintain your own beautiful, natural smile.

Yes, there are a whole lot of rumors and myths still floating around about root canal therapy. One simple Google search can provide you with a wealth of information and misinformation, and if you’ve been told you need a root canal doing any kind of online search may leave you feeling nervous. Fortunately, our dentist in Elkhorn, WI, Dr. Ronald Hull, can quell your nerves.

Here’s what a root canal is can do for you:

It’s minimally invasive

While getting any kind of dental procedure can be enough to make you feel a little anxious, something that might help you feel less anxious is knowing that this procedure is minor and minimally invasive. It’s about as invasive as getting a dental filling, which is a very easy and simple procedure. Furthermore, our Elkhorn, WI, general dentist will thoroughly numb the area beforehand so you won’t feel any pain or discomfort.

It will save your tooth

Once a dental pulp becomes infected or irritated, the only way to stop the bacteria from spreading further into the canals of the tooth is to treat it with root canal therapy. If the tooth is left untreated, not only will its structure be destroyed, but it will also damage the jawbone and neighboring teeth, as well. This is why it’s so important to see your dentist at the first sign of dental pain or other issues. Getting a root canal will preserve the natural tooth structure.

It will get rid of your pain

An infected dental pulp can cause some pretty considerable dental pain, and root canal treatment can remove the source of the pain (i.e. the dental pulp), often providing the patient with immediate relief. Why suffer through a toothache when it’s an easy fix?

Versatile dental implants offer a comfortable, long-term solution to tooth loss. They're an excellent choice no matter how many teeth you've lost and can even be used with dentures. Your Elkhorn, WI, dentist, Dr. Ronald Hull, can help you fill in the gaps in your smile with dental implants.

Dental implants become a permanent part of your jawbone

Strong roots support and stabilize your teeth, allowing you to bite into a crisp apple or chew a steak with ease. If you only replace the top, or crown, of your tooth, you may experience a decrease in your biting power.

Thanks to dental implants, it's possible to create a complete replacement tooth. Implants are titanium posts that act as synthetic roots for your new teeth. Once they're placed in your jawbone, they begin to bond to the bone. After several months, the implants are completely surrounded by bone and can provide a stable foundation for a dental crown.

The dental crown replaces the visible part of your lost tooth. After it's connected to the top of the implant, the restoration of your tooth will be complete. In most cases, dental implants never need to be replaced, which can save you money in the long-run.

Implants offer a comfortable option

Implants from your dentist in Elkhorn feel natural because they're securely attached to your jawbone, just like natural teeth. They won't slip or slide, even you eat a raw carrot or enjoy a sticky cinnamon bun.

No matter how many teeth you've lost, dental implants can be a good option for you. They can replace a single missing molar, restore several teeth in a row, or even replace all of your teeth.

Implant-supported dentures are connected to your jawbone with as few as four implants per arch. You won't experience a significant decrease in your biting power and won't have to worry that your teeth will wobble when you eat or speak when you choose implant-supported dentures.

Dental implants offer important oral health benefits for Elkhorn residents

Dental implants also:

  • Prevent Drifting: Your teeth may begin to shift and overlap as they attempt to fill the gap left by missing teeth. Overlapping teeth trap cavity-causing plaque and can change your bite and your appearance. Implants stop teeth from drifting.
  • Offer Resorption Protection: Jawbone resorption, a condition that occurs when your jawbone shrinks after tooth loss, can be avoided simply by adding implants to the bone. The implants stimulate the bone and keep it strong.

Restore your smile with dental implants! Call your Elkhorn, WI, dentist, Dr. Ronald Hull, at (262) 723-2911 to schedule an appointment.
