If you’re facing tooth loss and looking for an Anchorage dentist who can guide you through the process of the best way to replace missing teeth, you’ve come to the right place. Dental implants in Anchorage following single-tooth extraction (or multiple teeth extraction) are a long-lasting way to restore full function to areas of the mouth that have lost teeth.
The most common ways patients lose teeth are accidents, blows to the face, and gum tooth decay. Regardless of why you’re missing a tooth or several teeth, you have to consider if a root canal is a way to go or should you have teeth pulled and then have dental implants placed.
Just the thought of teeth being pulled can cause great anxiety in many Anchorage tooth loss sufferers. The term “root canal” has instilled fear in patients for many, many decades, but the root canals of today are very different from the root canals of the past. Endodontics is the specialization of dentistry that deals with performing root canals, and many advances in endodontics have made root canals much more tolerable and less painful.
Not all general dentists perform root canals, but many dentists in Anchorage are quite comfortable performing endodontic procedures. It’s important that you choose the best dentist in Anchorage with specific training and years of experience, so you can have all or most of your dental work performed in one place.
With sedation dentistry and advanced technology, root canals are really a very easy procedure that will allow you to go about your daily routine in no time at all. You will awaken from general anesthesia (or simply local anesthesia in some cases) with a beautiful new tooth that is healthy and functional.
