Endodontic surgery at Gresham Dental
When decay gets to the center of the teeth, the pulp becomes infected. When this happens, an endodontic surgery — also known as root canal treatment — is often the best solution to save your tooth.
During the procedure, one of our dentists will carefully remove the infected part of your tooth. Then, after cleaning and sealing the treated area, they will place a crown or a filling. This surgery prevents further damage to your tooth and keeps it from being extracted.
We often recommend dental implants to patients who are missing one or several teeth.
Dental implants function as roots for artificial teeth, such as crowns, dentures, or bridges. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia, so patients feel comfortable throughout the procedure. This treatment helps patients recover both function and appearance of their teeth, allowing them to look, eat, and speak better.
