Restorative Dentistry Mountain View
The root canals of each tooth house nerve tissue and dental pulp, which contain blood vessels that provide nourishment. When this tissue becomes infected, a tooth may be in danger of dying. Without a root canal, patients may experience severe swelling, bone loss, inflammation, toothache, darkening of the tooth, gum soreness, and drainage problems.
A root canal procedure is usually recommended after other dental treatment options have been considered. It is a treatment that is used to save a tooth from extraction, an absolute last-resort option at our practice. Root canals are common in cases where large cavities have done too much damage to fix with a tooth-colored filling or dental crown. They are also used in cases where a tooth infection is simply too invasive to control.
Cosmetic Dentistry Mountain View
Dental Zone Mountain View offers state-of-the-art endodontic treatment to Mountain View dental patients who need a solution to severe tooth damage right away.
• After a thorough X-ray session and evaluation, we can begin the root canal procedure. The first step in a root canal is to numb the area of the mouth being treated with local anesthesia.
• A rubber dam is placed over the tooth to isolate the treatment area.
• Next, our team will drill a small hole in the wall of the tooth.
• The tissue inside the tooth root, the nerve and pulp, are gently extracted using root canal files.
• The canals are then cleaned well, flushed with a special sterilizing solution, and sealed off.
• During the next visit, the empty root canal is filled with a rubber compound called gutta percha.
• We will add an onlay or inlay to the tooth, followed by a dental crown to protect the enamel.

Endodontic Dental Services Mountain View
Endodontics is a branch of dentistry recognized by the American Dental Association involving diagnosis and treatment of the pulp (root canal) and surrounding tissues of the tooth. When you look at your tooth in the mirror, what you see is the crown. The rest of the tooth, the portion hidden beneath the gum line, is called the root. Though the outer portion of the root is a hard tissue called dentin, the inside channel or “root canal” contains a pulp of soft tissue, blood vessels and nerves.
The endodontist examines, diagnoses, and treats diseases and destructive processes, including injuries and abnormalities of dental pulps and periapical tissues of the teeth.
Orthodontics Mountain View
An orthodontist prevents and treats alignment problems in the mouth, teeth, and jaw. Using braces, retainers, and other devices, an orthodontist helps straighten a person’s teeth and correct the way the jaws line up.
Orthodontists treat children for many problems, including crowded or overlapping teeth or problems with jaw growth and tooth development which can be genetic. These tooth and jaw problems may also be caused by tooth decay, losing baby teeth too soon, accidents, or habits like thumb sucking.
Orthodontic problems require specialized care. Patients who have dental and facial irregularities should see our Mountain View Orthodontist.
