Our Featured Services
Root canals, tooth extraction, and tooth replacement are all general dentistry services that are, in some ways, linked. They are methods utilized by our Midlothian dentist when your teeth have experienced severe damage. Dr. Ronald Mamrick practices conservative dentistry, exhausting all options for saving your teeth before extraction, including root canals, and encouraging you to replace any missing teeth immediately to preserve your oral and overall health.
When the pulp of your tooth becomes infected, a root canal may be the only way to save your tooth. Our dentist in Midlothian, VA, will remove the infection and the pulp. He will then clean out the canals and pack them with filling material to ensure their future health. A dental crown customized to match the surrounding teeth, in both shape and shade, will be placed over the tooth structure to protect it and preserve your ability to chew. Dr. Mamrick will make sure that your new crown looks beautiful and fits into alignment with your bite for optimum comfort.
Extractions are performed when saving your tooth is hopeless. In a simple extraction, our Midlothian dentist will use forceps to gently rock your decayed tooth back and forth until it can be gently coaxed out of its socket. Surgical extractions are implemented in more complex cases, such as when a tooth has been fractured or has not yet erupted.
After the loss of a tooth, immediate replacement is necessary to ensure the health of the surrounding teeth and to preserve your ability to chew. Tooth loss can also be devastating to your self-esteem. Our dentist in Midlothian, VA, places custom dentures as an affordable, convenient tooth restoration option. Partial dentures or full dentures are available, depending on how many teeth you have lost.
