- Crowns- Teeth that had root canal treatment or extensive restoration can be repaired and strengthened with a crown that fits over the tooth. A crown will restore a tooth to its normal shape, color, and function. Crowns can also restore broken, cracked, poorly shaped, and severely discolored teeth to provide a more natural appearance.

- Non-Surgical Gum Treatment- Periodontal disease is a chronic bacterial infection that affect the gums and the bone supporting the teeth. There are many forms of periodontal disease. If left untreated, this disease can lead to tooth loss. In severe cases, this disease can exacerbate other organ system problems such as heart disease. In most cases, periodontal disease is reversible with professional treatment and good oral care at home.
- Surgical Gum Treatment- In some cases, perio disease has advanced to the point where non surgical gum treatment is sufficient enough to eradicate the problem, and therefore surgical gum treatments may be necessary.
- Root Canals- A root canal is a procedure that may save an infected or damaged tooth. This procedure relieves the symptoms of a toothache, visible trauma, swelling, and temperature sensitivity.
- Tooth Removal- As a last resort, sometimes a tooth may be so badly broken down that it is not restorable and/or a severe infection may be present in conjunction with a tooth. Under these conditions, it may be recommended to have the tooth removed. In this circumstance, a treatment plan to replace the tooth will be offered and discussed. Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to develop and appear in your mouth. They usually appear during the late teens and are usually positioned behind the upper and lower second or twelve-year molars. A person’s jaw is often not large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, and as a result can create complications if they are not removed. A result can be pain or infection crowding of teeth or damage to the surrounding teeth. The removal of wisdom teeth is a common procedure with minimal side effects. Although rare, Dr. Garino will provide a comprehensive explanation of any risks and complications associated with the procedure; the most coming are infection, dry socket, numbness and sinus complications.
