At Ambrosi Place Dental, we strive to create an innovative dental experience. Curious what that's like?
Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed .There are many clinical reasons for needing root canal treatment, but there are also countless practical reasons why saving the natural tooth is a wise choice. Endodontic treatment helps you maintain your natural smile, continue eating the foods you love and limits the need for ongoing dental work. With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment can last a lifetime.
We do not place mercury fillings in our office. One disadvantage of silver amalgam tooth fillings is that they don't match the color of your teeth, so they may be more noticeable than composite resin fillings, which are tooth-colored. In addition, more of your natural tooth must be removed in order to place an amalgam filling than a composite resin filling. Amalgam fillings also shrink and expand at a different rate than teeth do, which can cause stress fractures and eventual breakage of the tooth. Teeth are weaker to compressive chewing forces when they are restored with these fillings.

No, I am not a holistic dentist. In our practice we have a holistic approach to dentistry which includes alternatives to amalgam/ mercury fillings. We are aware of the proper protocol to remove mercury fillings. We also provide our patients with nutritional information and how diet and proper at home care can be very beneficial to the health of your teeth and gums which affects the entire body.
It is best to bring in your child before their first birthday, or six months after their first tooth makes an appearance. Introducing them to their dentist early in life reduces fear and anxiety that can accompany a visit to the dentist.
A complete set of dental x-rays is necessary to give us the whole picture so we can develop your personal dental plan. There are several things that a dentist can’t see just by looking in your mouth. They include:
No, he’s not part shark, but he does have what is known as paediatric shark teeth. This happens when the permanent teeth decide to come through before the baby teeth have fallen out. We are born with 20 baby teeth. They usually break through the gums around six month of age. Around age four to six, the adult teeth push them out. When the baby teeth don’t give the adult teeth room to come out, a second row appears behind the baby teeth.
This often does not require anything but patience. If a baby tooth refuses to come out, we can remove it, giving the new tooth plenty of room to move into place.
