Root canal treatment is the removal of the tooth's pulp, a small, thread-like tissue in the center of the tooth.
The most common causes of pulp damage or death are:
Root canal treatment consists of several steps :
Periodontia focuses on treating the structures that support your teeth, and in placing dental implants. Periodontists have special expertise in gum disease, which is often the underlying cause of unhealthy or missing teeth.
Periodontal therapy returns your gums and jawbone to normal health.
Orthodontics is a specialist branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of dental and facial irregularities occurring from:
Most of these issues are corrected using braces, which are made from wires and springs attached to tiny metal plates or a plastic mold. The brace applies gentle force to the teeth and encourages them to adopt a different alignment. Braces will improve the function and general appearance of the teeth.

Dental implants are replacement roots of the tooth. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
Improved speech: With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
Improved comfort: Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
Improved self-esteem: Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
Improved oral health: Dental implants don't require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
Durability: Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
Convenience: Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
