Root planing & scaling

At Goliad Dental, we emphasize conservative periodontal therapy. Many times, early stages of periodontal disease are best treated with nonsurgical methods of periodontal therapy.

We usually begin with a thorough cleaning where plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line are scraped away (scaling) and rough spots on the tooth root are made smooth (planing). Four to six weeks later, periodontal pockets are eliminated due to gum shrinkage. Then the patient can personally maintain these areas with routine brushing and flossing.

RESTORATIVE SERVICES


Composite fillings are also called resin or tooth-colored fillings. Choosing this type of filling depends on where the tooth is in your mouth. There is a lot of force applied to the back teeth when we bite, so size and location are important when deciding to use this type of restoration. To place this composite filling, we remove all decay and other filling material from your tooth. A bonding material is placed, then the composite resin is put into the prepared tooth in thin layers. Each layer gets hard with the help of a special light that we hold over the tooth to cure the material. When the last layer of the filling is hard, we shape the material so it looks and feels natural.

ENDODONTICS


Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way downward until they reach the tip of the root. All teeth have between one and four root canals.

Many tooth problems involve infections that spread to the pulp, which is the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves and other tissues. When an infection becomes worse, it begins to affect the root of the tooth. A traumatic injury to a tooth can also compromise the pulp, leading to similar problems.

A diseased inner tooth brings a host of problems. Pain and sensitivity are some of the first indications of a problem, but inside the tooth, a spreading infection can cause small pockets of pus to develop leading to an abscess which can go unnoticed.

Root canal therapy is a remarkable treatment with a very high rate of success. A root canal involves removing the diseased tissue, halting the spread of infection and restoring the healthy portion of the tooth. In fact, root canal therapy was designed to save a problem tooth — before the procedure was developed and gained acceptance, the only alternative for treating a diseased tooth was extraction.

Our procedure

Root canal therapy usually entails one to three visits. During the first visit, a small hole is drilled through the top of the tooth and into the inner chamber. Diseased tissue is then removed, the inner chamber cleansed and disinfected and the tiny canals reshaped. 

Following that, the cleansed chamber and canals are filled with an elastic material and medication designed to prevent infection. If necessary, the drilled hole is temporarily filled until a permanent seal is made with a crown. Most patients who have a root canal experience little or no discomfort or pain and enjoy a restored tooth that can last almost as long as its healthy original.

Wisdom teeth

WISDOM TEETH


Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that emerge in the back corners of the upper and lower normal adult mouth. Unfortunately, most people experience problems from wisdom teeth. In most cases, this is because the teeth erupt too close to existing permanent teeth, causing crowding, improper bites and other problems.

If wisdom teeth are causing a problem and are not extracted, they can sometimes become impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can be extremely painful as well as harmful to your oral health. Symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth are often easy to spot. The pain, inflammation and infection associated with them are hard to miss. Many people need to have their wisdom teeth extracted to avoid future serious problems. In general, the lack of the four wisdom teeth does not hamper one’s ability to properly bite down, speak or eat.
