Root canals are usually required if your tooth is seriously decayed and infected, but can also be required if it becomes cracked due to a slip and fall, car accident, or a hard hit in contact sports. Dr. Packard has your best interest at heart, and if your tooth can be saved with root canal therapy, he will suggest this option rather than extracting the tooth and replacing it with a costly prosthetic.
Some signs that you may have an infected tooth include increased sensitivity, grayish color or other discoloration, constant toothache and radiating jaw pain. If you notice any of these signs, give our Bowling Green team a call today to get the compassionate dental care you deserve.
Many patients say that root canal treatment is much less painful than the toothache that precedes it. Root canals are fairly common, and Dr. Packard is highly efficient because he has so much experience performing these procedures. Before your treatment begins, Dr. Packard will administer a local anesthetic to numb any pain, and your procedure will be over before you know it! If you are suffering from a toothache that you suspect may be caused by decay or infection, give us a call today and we will get you out of pain!
If you are missing multiple teeth due to an injury, accident, or periodontal disease, Dr. Packard and the Precision Dental team are here to help. We offer full and partial dentures for patients who are looking to restore their smile and fill in gaps from multiple missing teeth. This solution is custom-made for a perfect fit, so your dentures will look and feel natural and you’ll be able to smile confidently again. Come in for a consultation to see whether dentures are the right option for you.
Crowns cover damaged teeth to strengthen teeth and restore their shape and function. Teeth that have been cracked or have large fillings may need to be restored with a crown, and this is because a dental crown is often the best option to extend the life of a tooth and protect it from further harm. If you think a dental crown might be the right option for you, give us a call today to schedule an appointment.
