What you explore as an alternative is treatment with clear aligners. Your Mansfield, TX dentist’s office is prepared to discuss this service with you so that you can understand what to expect from your appliances as well as what they can do for your smile! (more…)

When You Are In Need Of A Root Canal

When a cavity initially forms, it can be addressed through treatment that ends with the placement of a conservative filling. Unfortunately, when problems with decay go unrecognized and untreated, more damage ultimately affects our tooth structure. This can worsen to the point where an infection develops within the structure and must be addressed through a root canal. Our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office is prepared to take on this problem and help you recover from the harm done by a cavity. In addition to providing treatment to address an infection, we can keep your tooth safe by capping it with a dental crown that protects it and also takes on bite pressure to preserve natural and comfortable jaw movements.
