Relieving Your Dental Anxiety At Hammond Aesthetic & Family Dentistry

Relieving Your Dental Anxiety With Provo Sedation Dentistry

Hello Orem dental blog visitors, welcome to the Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry blog. We are Dr. Hammond and we specialize in cosmetic dentistry and dental crowns.

If you need root canal treatment and are worried about the pain you might experience or being able to get off of work for the multiple office visits to complete the procedure, be assured that painful root canals are a thing of the past with modern Utah dentistry.

With the latest technology and anesthetics, a root canal (endodontic treatment) is no more painful than receiving a filling. Most root canals can be completed in one or two short office visits.

Your anxiety can be diminished when you know what to expect. If you have been neglecting your teeth because of fears or concerns about a particular procedure and have not been to your Provo dentist recently, we encourage you to schedule an exam, cleaning, and consultation today. We are accepting new Orem dentistry patients at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry.

At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry, we offer invisible braces, fast teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and all general and preventative dental procedures.

If you are interested in dental crowns or porcelain veneers, call us today to schedule an appointment.

Saving Teeth in Provo

Root Canals in Provo When a tooth is threatened by severe decay, periodontal disease, or damage from an injury, a skilled Provo dentist or endodontist must make a judgment call concerning the course of treatment. If the pulp of the tooth is infected or inflamed, a root canal is often the only way to save the tooth.

During a root canal procedure (or endodontic treatment) the soft tissue in the root of the tooth is removed. This tissue contains veins, arteries and lymph vessels. Once the roots are cleaned out and widened, they are filled with a special rubber material. The root canal is only the first step in the complete tooth restoration. After the root canal, without a crown, the tooth will become dry and brittle. The final steps are the core build up and dental crown.

At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry, we fabricate strong, natural-looking dental crowns that blend perfectly with the surrounding teeth. With proper oral hygiene and regular visits to a Orem dentist, a tooth with a filled root can often function problem-free for the rest of a patient’s life.

We are Dr. Chris Hammond DMD of Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry. We have been practicing dentistry since 1996. During that time we have seen hundreds of teeth saved by this effective dental procedure. Root canal therapy at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo has a very high success rate.

Because teeth with infected pulp tissue often cause no symptoms, it is important to have regular dental examinations. We can determine which (if any) teeth have infected roots. If the infection in the soft pulp tissue is left untreated, it can progress to a point where the tooth cannot be saved. Is it time for a thorough dental exam? Call our office at 801-374-0070.
