Endodontics (Root Canals)
Endodontics is a dental specialty focusing on diagnosing and treating problems inside the teeth, including the soft tissue. The soft tissue, or dental pulp, contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. The pulp covers the top of the crown to root tips and creates the surrounding hard tissue that forms the outside of the tooth.
Tooth extraction is the removal of a diseased or decaying tooth. Removing a tooth is often the last resort for many dentists. In most cases, a dentist can save a decayed or dysfunctional tooth. DeStefano Dentistry recommends that patients get a full examination before assuming their circumstances call for tooth extraction.
There’s simply no reason to wait any longer for that bright and confident smile you always wanted and deserve. If you are living with stained, chipped or crooked teeth, cosmetic dentistry, performed by Dr. DeStefano, may not be as expensive or time-consuming as you imagined.
