Do you have a friend who wears braces? He or she most likely visited an orthodontist to have them placed. These specialists are trained to correct problems with teeth and bite alignment with the placement of devices such as metal braces and retainers. For those individuals who need orthodontic treatment but do not want to wear traditional metal braces, Dental Associates of Corona also offers Invisalign clear braces, which consist of virtually-unnoticeable aligners worn over the teeth.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Whether you need the removal of wisdom teeth, the placement of dental implants, or the correction of misaligned jaws, oral and maxillofacial surgeons have you covered. Post-dental school, these specialists receive four to seven years of medical and surgical training.
Endodonists treat irregularities in the nerve-filled tissue found at the center of teeth, which is known as dental pulp. People who need a root canal will often be referred to an endodontist because the procedure includes removing the pulp from an infected and/or decayed tooth. These dental specialists also treat the periapical issues, which are located in the tip of the tooth root.
The treatment of dental issues specific to a child’s developing mouth is the specialty of a pediatric dentist. In addition to taking care of children’s teeth, these dentists also make it their top priority to ensure the comfort of the child throughout every appointment.
