Oops…

What is an Amalgam Filling?

There has been great debate in the public about the materials we use to fill teeth that have decay (cavities).

Should I have a root canal or a dental implant?

Not only are you confused by what these treatment options mean or attempt to accomplish,  but they come with a considerable amount of investment of your time and money to correct. It can get rather expensive to save a tooth when the decay has advanced to such a severe state.
