Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth, usually in a person’s late teens or twenties. When they align properly and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. They may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum and even remain trapped beneath the gum and bone. Impacted teeth can take many positions in the bone as they attempt to find a pathway that will allow them to successfully erupt. Your dentist can determine if you need your wisdom teeth removed from the x-rays taken during your usual hygiene cleanings.Learn more
Dental implants are changing the way people live and are often the best option for people who have experienced tooth loss. They are the closest thing to natural teeth that modern dental technology has to offer. They are a desirable alternative to dentures as these are “permanent teeth” that look, feel and function similar to natural teeth. Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The posts act as tooth root substitutes and, within three to six months, the bone bonds with the titanium to create a strong foundation for artificial teeth. If you are considering dental implants, give us a call and we will thoroughly examine your mouth and dental records to determine if they are a good option.Learn more
Oral surgeons care for patients with more serious problems, such as wisdom teeth, facial pain and misaligned jaws. They specialize in procedures involving TMJ disorders, orthognathic surgery and wisdom teeth removal.Learn more
As we age, our dental care needs change. Seniors may need more restorative care to ensure a healthy smile. At Carus Dental, we offer complete senior dental care, including dentures, dental implants, gum disease prevention and a discount program for our older patients.
Endodontic/Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are typically needed when an untreated cavity progresses rapidly and spreads to the pulp of the tooth. The tooth pulp is made up of blood vessels, connective tissues and nerves. Once the bacteria of decay have reached the tooth pulp, it can be extremely painful. If your dentist determines that a root canal is the best solution for you, the procedure can typically be done with minimal discomfort and often keeps you from losing the tooth.Learn more
TMJ disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, which is the name for each joint (right and left) that connects your jaw to your skull. If you have had symptoms like pain or a “clicking” sound, you’ll be glad to know these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Since some types of TMJ problems can lead to more serious conditions, early detection and treatment are important.Learn more
Powerful pain-killing medications known as anesthetics not only help a patient avoid discomfort during a procedure, but post-operatively as well. Your dentist will talk to you about the most appropriate sedation option to address your particular needs.Learn more

Dental emergencies can happen at all hours of the day and night. In order to keep every tooth we care for safe, we offer some guidelines on what to do in every situation.
