Root Canal

Root Canal in Louisville, KY

A root canal is a simple non-surgical procedure performed over 14 million times every year to repair damaged or infected teeth. It can save your natural teeth, reduce pain, and even improve your overall health. The procedure, typically performed under local anesthesia, involves accessing the interior of a tooth and removing the infected or problematic areas. The average procedure lasts just 30-60 minutes, and the recovery typically takes less than a week. At Moore Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry we understand how painful and disruptive untreated dental problems can be, so if you find yourself in need of a root canal, rest assured that our team of compassionate professionals will work with you to make certain your procedure and recovery is as painless and stress-free as is possible. Oral health is a key component to overall health, and we’re here to help you achieve and maintain a happy and healthy smile.

Periodontal disease is an infection caused by the bacteria found in plaque, the thin biofilm that constantly forms around our teeth. In response to these bacteria, our immune system produces toxins.

Without treatment, periodontal disease can have serious consequences for your oral health.

Dental Bridges

A safe, low-risk way to replace one or more missing teeth. Natural teeth or dental implants can be used as anchors to support the suspended replacement teeth.

Dental Crowns

Decay or trauma can cause loss of tooth structure and can compromise function as well as esthetics. Extensive loss of tooth structure can best be replaced with a restoration that covers your entire tooth as in a crown. This “full coverage” restoration can strengthen your tooth and in the hands of an expert can provide a long-lasting esthetic and functional result.

Dental Implants

Implants are made of titanium and have special coatings that encourage the fusing of human bone. The top of each implant has an internal screw channel so that crowns, bridges, and or dentures can be screwed in place.
