Dental Implants can be an effective method to replace one tooth or several teeth. Implants consists of a titanium anchor that is inserted into the jawbone, and a protruding post, which can be outfitted with an crown, bridge, partial, or full dentition.
MINI DENTAL IMPLANTS
Mini Dental Implants are a new concept in implant dentistry. Smaller versions of traditional dental implants that have a ball attachment (looks like a small trailer hitch), are placed in the jawbone of patients with existing dentures. The patients denture is then fitted with rubber o-rings that fit over the ball and hold the denture in place. This is done in one or two appointments and the patient leaves with a more stable denture the day of surgery.

Deep tooth decay, or an injury, can cause serious damage and infection to the pulp's nerves and vessels. Root canal, or endodontic, treatment cleans out the infected pulp chamber and repairs the damage.
Some indications of the need for root canal treatment may be:
