A root canal is, in essence, a last-chance procedure to save a severely decayed or infected tooth. Why is it called a “root canal?” This refers to the area within the teeth where the nerve and pulp are located—and which often the source of growing decay and pain. The nerve and pulp must be removed if the rest of the tooth is to be saved.

The nerve is not essential to ongoing tooth function, serving mostly to detect temperature differences and changes in pressure. However, if it has become infected, it is a liability that could result in swelling, drainage, and bone loss if not addressed as soon as possible. In a root canal treatment (also known as an endodontic treatment), our dentist in Greenbelt MD Dr. Dennis R. Hatfield creates a small opening in the tooth’s crown and cleans out the pulp and nerve. The empty space is then filled in and sealed, preventing further decay to take place.

Once a root canal is completed, the affected area receives a dental cap or filling, entirely concealing the work done so your smile retains its full, healthy appeal. It isn’t uncommon for the tooth or surrounding gums to be sensitive for a few days after the procedure but this shouldn’t prevent patients from returning to their daily routines immediately following treatment.Basic, ongoing dental hygiene and oral protection is an easy and affordable way to prevent a root canal from ever being necessary in the first place.

Product and Services

When you hear the word “bridge” you tend to immediately think of a structure that is grounded on either side of a river or other body of water, allowing you to walk or drive across. In a dental context, while there are no bodies of water involved, the principle is similar. A bridge crosses the space left by a missing tooth or other dental gap and helps secure the teeth on either side.

Getting a bridge put in place is actually quite a simple procedure. Here in our Greenbelt dental office we can complete it within two visits. First, the abutment teeth (those on either side of the gap) are prepared and impressions are molded. Then, on the next visit the new bridge is inspected and installed. Further checkups and maintenance may be required for specific patients.

It’s almost certain everyone will have to deal with the most basic of dental maladies—cavities. If left unaddressed, cavities can cause much more widespread tooth decay and oral pain. Fortunately since they are such a common issue, dental technology and procedure is quite advanced in dealing with these unwanted enamel intrusions. One such technique is fillings.

When a cavity is removed, ensuring the infected portions of the tooth no longer remains, it can leave an open space that not only threatens the structural integrity of the tooth but can make it easier for infection and decay to once more take root. A filling fixes this by replacing the lost tooth materials with a wide variety of available substances.

Traditional fillings are often metal, such as silver, gold, and platinum. While these substances are still in use today, they are not as popular considering high cost and the fact that they visibly stand out from the tooth. More modern options include ceramics, resin amalgams, glass composites, and other combinations offer the same benefits as metal fillings but blend into the tooth much more easily.
