We Feel – and Relieve – Your Dental Pain
Do you have any of these restorative dentistry problems? If so, Dr. Craig Ellsworth can fix them for you.
- A cracked tooth. A dental crown can usually repair your cracked tooth so you can resume eating and drinking without pain. For a less severe crack, a veneer can restore the appearance of your tooth and protect it from further damage.
- An infected tooth. Nothing is quite like the pain of an infected tooth. You will be willing to do practically anything to make it go away! Fortunately, a root canal relieves your pain and removes the infection so it does not spread. Despite the root canal’s reputation as a fearful procedure, Dr. Ellsworth will put you at ease. You’ll be surprised at how pain-free and straightforward the treatment is.
- A broken tooth. Like a cracked tooth, a dental crown can often repair this type of damage. Or if the tooth is too far gone, Dr. Ellsworth can gently extract it for you. He can then replace the lost tooth with a dental implant. An implant looks and feels like your natural tooth and helps maintain your dental health.
