Composite fillings act as a dentistry solution for problems such as tooth decay or cracks. A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. This procedure is also utilized for cosmetic improvements of the smile by fixing any discoloration or reshaping any disfigured teeth.
Root canals are needed when decay and bacteria spread for too long without treatment. At a certain point, this decay makes it to the pulp inside the tooth. This pulp includes nerves, therefore infection generally causes a lot of pain. Since this is happening on the inside of the tooth, you won’t necessarily see the damage. Instead, you could feel it through pain and notice other signs that include bleeding, swelling and bad breath.
Do you have a tooth that's causing you pain? Chances are, you may need to get your tooth removed.

Dental crowns are coverings or caps that your dentist can put on an existing tooth. They are designed to restore your tooth to its normal shape and size. Ultimately, a crown will make your tooth stronger and improve the way it looks.

If you are missing teeth, dentures can provide a positive solution to improving your oral health. We are proud to provide dentures that are designed to fit your mouth for proper function and unique comfort. Following your appointment, we will provide you with information on at-home care for your dentures. We strongly recommend scheduling follow up appointments for periodic denture cleanings.
Here at Southern Roots Dentistry, we are proud to offer nightguards and mouthguards to our patients.
We use mouthguards as a way to protect your teeth from grinding. Many people cause a lot of damage when they grind their teeth at night. Mouthguards are also used during sports activities since many people like to clench their teeth. Mouthguards also protect your teeth and jaw in case you get hit in the face.
We offer different types of mouthguards depending on your needs. Some are pre-formed while others are customizable so that they fit your mouth perfectly. We offer mouthguards for your top teeth, though some people need to have mouthguards for both their top and bottom teeth.
