Root Canals and Minor Oral Surgery

The team at Drum Point Family and Implant Dentistry understands you don’t want to visit a different dentist for every procedure. That’s why we offer a vast array of services across multiple disciplines of dentistry. Nearly any necessary treatment is performed in the comfort of our Brick dental office, saving you time and hassle. You can relax knowing you’re in our hands.

Root Canal Therapy

Teeth with severe decay or infections within the root may require a root canal. With this procedure, we can effectively rid the tooth of disease, alleviate discomfort, and save the tooth from distraction. You may require a root canal if:

  • You have a toothache or pain in the jaw
  • Your tooth is sensitive to hot and cold temperatures
  • Your gums are swollen or tender
  • Your tooth is discolored or darkened

During a root canal, we clean out the infection, seal the tooth, and place a custom dental crown. The crown improves the tooth's appearance and function, while also preventing re-infection. Following your root canal, your tooth pain will subside, so you can eat and chew in complete comfort.

Minor Oral Surgery

As general dentists, Dr. Ruiz, Dr. Virdee, and Dr. Fan all have extensive training in all aspects of dentistry, and that includes minor oral surgery. If you find that you need something more than a cleaning or filling, you can feel confident you’ll receive quality care at our Brick family dentistry practice. Our minor oral surgery procedures include, but may not be limited to:

  • Extractions
  • Wisdom tooth removal
  • Crown lengthening
  • Dental implant placement
