When you have a tooth that’s infected or very badly decayed, we might recommend a root canal. There’s no need to worry when you hear the words “root canal”; all this means is that we can help save your badly decayed or infected tooth. During the procedure, we will remove the nerve and pulp to clean the inside of the tooth and seal it with a filling, leaving harmful bacteria out.
There are obvious signs that you might need a root canal, and there are some that go unnoticed or get misconstrued for other dental issues. Some of the obvious signs include tooth pain ranging from mild to severe, tender gums, swollen gums, or prolonged sensitivity to hot foods or liquids. If you suspect you need a root canal, call Union Street Dentistry today so Dr. Syed can take a look at your teeth.
We use the most state-of-the-art X-rays and other dental equipment for your safety and peace of mind.

When you have problems with the bones and joints in your jaw, bone grafting may be the answer. Following trauma to your bones, we can transplant bone tissue around an implanted device to help your bones grow correctly.
After finding that a bone graft is right for you, we can provide a tooth extraction and socket grafting. Through this procedure the remaining tooth socket should decrease in size and we will fill the hole to eliminate the cavity to avoid shifting teeth. In the end, your teeth will not only be aligned correctly, but they will also look great.
Call us today to discuss your needs, and we can help you decide if a dental implant, bone graft, or socket graft is right for you.
