At Trillium Dental, our family dentists do everything they can to save damaged or decaying teeth. We only use tooth extraction as a last resort, and we employ a number of dental treatments and procedures to save existing teeth, including dental crowns, dental bridges, and root canal procedures. In our restorative dentistry blog, you’ll learn about our restorative dentistry treatments and root canals, as well as the difference between dental crowns and dental bridges. If you have an infected or damaged tooth, it’s far better to save it than it is to replace it with dental implants or dentures. Book an appointment at one of our dental clinics in Ottawa!
