General Treatments

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a procedure that is performed to treat inflammation of the nerve tissue present inside the tooth, the dental pulp. During the root canal procedure, Dr. Syeda Amina R. Bukhari. D.D.S will gain access into the tooth’s interior and remove the pulp tissue by using specialized instruments. Don’t worry, you won’t feel any pain during this procedure, as it will be performed under the effect of local anesthesia. At Sherwood Forest Dental, we recommend that teeth that have undergone root canal treatment should be reinforced with a crown, as they tend to become weak and brittle after the procedure.

Extractions

At Sherwood Forest Dental, we try our best to restore even the most badly damaged teeth so that they don’t need to be extracted. However, still, there are certain situations that require the removal of teeth. Some of these situations include:

• Tooth extraction for orthodontic purposes
• Supernumerary (extra) teeth
• Teeth which cannot be restored

Tooth extraction is a safe procedure that is performed under the effect of local anesthesia. Therefore, this is a completely painless procedure.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

The third molar teeth are also known as wisdom teeth. While the wisdom teeth are the last to erupt in the oral cavity, they often need to be removed when they become completely or partially erupted in the jaw bone, or when there is insufficient space in the jaws to accommodate all teeth in optimal alignment. At Sherwood Forest Dental, Dr. Syeda Amina R. Bukhari. D.D.S may also extract wisdom teeth if it is felt that they may cause cavities or periodontal problems in the adjacent teeth.
