General Dentistry and Endodontics
Comfortable Leawood Care
We are pleased to offer surgical services at our office. Dr. Craig and Dr. Tim perform minor oral surgery using local anesthesia. When the need for advanced oral surgery arises, we are happy to help you coordinate the appropriate treatment.
If you have a tooth that is badly decayed or infected, we may recommend endodontic (root canal) treatment. Endodontic treatment is one of the most effective approaches for restoring the health of infected or badly damaged teeth. Dr. Tim only performs selective root canals, but we will happily coordinate treatment with an Endodontist for more difficult cases.
If you are one of the thousands of individuals who rub and/or grind your upper and lower teeth during sleep, we can provide fitted plastic or hard acrylic night guards, worn in your mouth at night or even during the day. These appliances protect your teeth and reduce the need for future restorative dental work. If you are diagnosed with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), we may recommend that you sleep with a bite splint, a fitted appliance that reduces joint pain and improves jaw joint alignment.
