Pine Desert Dental offers a large variety of advanced dental services, including root canals, oral surgery, and sedation dentistry. Our comprehensive dentistry services aim to provide patients of all ages with options to improve and restore their oral health.
A root canal (or endodontic) treatment is a dental procedure that aims to treat the infection in the tooth's pulp to prevent its extraction. Patients who undergo a root canal usually experience pain relief shortly after the procedure is over.
It's performed when the nerves and soft tissue of the tooth, or pulp, are damaged or become infected by bacteria. Removing your tooth's decayed and inflamed tissue will help maintain its structure and prevent its extraction.
During your dental consultation, Dr. Sunitsch will review your symptoms to identify the best treatment option for you.
Oral surgery helps patients upkeep and restore their oral health by performing multiple types of surgeries on the teeth, jaw, or gums. Dr. Sunitsch may recommend oral surgery because of various factors, including:
- Dental decay
- Broken teeth
- Jawbone loss
- Impacted teeth
- Gum disease
Any type of surgery entails some risks. To minimize the risk of these complications, follow your dentist's guidelines after your surgery and take any prescribed medication. If you suspect any of these issues, contact your dentist right away.
Sedation dentistry helps patients who wish to remain calm and relaxed during dental procedures. Our available options are ideal for people who want to reduce the stress caused by their treatments but do not want to be completely unconscious.
Sedation dentistry options that we offer include nitrous oxide and oral anxiolytics. Nitrous oxide is available to pediatric patients.
If you will have a dental procedure soon and wish to remain comfortable during the treatment, the Pine Desert Dental team has multiple sedation dentistry options available.
Periodontal treatments help patients upkeep their oral health and a natural smile by restoring their gum tissues. If you have mild to moderate periodontitis (gum disease), the Pine Desert Dental team can help you explore treatment options.
Periodontal treatments include surgical and non-surgical procedures to help restore oral health and prevent further dental decay. Some of these procedures include deep cleanings, crown lengthening, and gingival grafting.
