Whether you need a root canal procedure in Spokane, WA, or your little one needs their first dental checkup, our team can help. Explore our general dentistry services to ensure your smile or any of your family members’ smile is effectively taken care of.
As we welcome you into our Spokane dental office, we want you to feel relaxed and comfortable throughout your oral exam. At your initial dental examination, Dr. López will generally take x-rays of your mouth, complete a full evaluation, review your dental history, and most importantly, get to know you and your smile goals.
During your regular teeth cleaning appointments, we focus on the prevention of cavities, gum disease, tooth decay, and other common dental problems. In order to do so, Dr. López and our dental hygienists work together to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and below your gum line. Additionally, we complete each hygiene visit with teeth polishing to remove any stains and residue.
For our patients who may be experiencing toothaches, decay, or have damaged teeth, tooth extraction may be necessary to prepare you for restorative treatment or to create room in your mouth due to overcrowding teeth. Depending if the tooth is visible to the eye or not, there are two ways Dr. López may extract your tooth or teeth. One can be by removing an adult tooth that is fully grown or by making an incision to extract a tooth underneath the gums.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is performed on patients whose teeth have decayed or are infected. Our root canal procedure aims to save your existing tooth and restore it as a healthy root. To do so, Dr. López will remove the infected pulp that has affected the tooth before cleaning, disinfecting, and shaping the root canal so he can place a filling to seal the space.
