Endodontics

Hyde Park Dental offers complete endodontic services for our dental patients. Endodontic care is more commonly known as a root canal. This happens when an infection or extreme irritation occurs in one or more roots of the tooth. Our dental team provides services that cover everything from the complete root canal to treatment on an existing root canal We also perform apicolectomies — a surgical way to treat a root canal. Our dentists have had the experience needed to take care of all your dental health needs from the root canal to the finished porcelain crown.

Many root canals can be completed easily in the comfort of our Hyde Park Dental office. We offer sedation dentistry as part of our complete endodontic care in order to give you the most comfortable endodontic experience. Depending on the tooth, most root canals can be done in one visit unless there is extreme infection in the tooth. If this is the case, an antibiotic may be needed before finishing the root canal. Once a root canal is completed, the dentist will determine whether a filling or crown is needed for maximum protection and stability of the tooth.

Dental Sealants

Hyde Park Dental recommends dental sealants for all of its dental patients. This is an excellent way to prevent unnecessary decay from the lack of enamel or enamel erosion over time. This is recommended for anyone who wants to delay the onset of tooth decay and prevent cavities and enamel erosion. Dental sealants is often performed on the teeth of child patients and patients who are experiencing premature erosion of tooth enamel. Some of our patients also experience under-development of tooth enamel or very thin enamel. In these cases, we highly recommend dental sealants in order to avoid extensive dental problems in the future.

Dentures

Finding the right dentures for your mouth and needs is essential to being happy with your dental appliance. It is important that your dentist goes through all of your denture options thoroughly and explains the benefits of each option. Dentures are an incredibly common dental appliance for many adults. This option is typically explored when the dental patient has a certain number of teeth badly in need of repair that may not be possible through regular dental procedures. Extreme tooth decay, loss of necessary structural integrity of the teeth, unhealthy gums, or loss of underlying bone structure support are all very common reasons for adults to pursue dental appliance such as dentures.

Dentures are available for the whole mouth as well as just the upper or lower sets of teeth. There may also be partial sets of dentures available although a bridge is generally the appliance of choice when only part of the set of teeth in question needs to be replaced. Before dentures can be acquired, a mold of the existing teeth is taken and the necessary measures to remove the teeth are taken. All teeth that the dentures are replacing must be removed in order for the denture appliance to fit correctly.

After you have been fitted for dentures and the necessary treatments have occurred, you will visit your dentist to install the denture and make any necessary adjustments. In addition to making adjustments to the denture in order to make the fit comfortable for the patient, we also go over proper care and installation of the denture. It is very important to properly care for an install the denture for maximum comfort as well as the oral health of the patient. We are always happy to answer our patients questions about continued care for their dentures.
