Save Your Dental Health with Allen Root Canal Therapy Today

January 10, 2015

Are you struggling with tooth pain and sensitivity? This could be a clear indication of a severely infected tooth. Teeth that have become infected will eventually need to be extracted if left untreated. To save your natural tooth from removal, you can elect to have root canal therapy treatment. Tooth removal can cause a brand new set of dental problems and will ultimately be more costly and damaging to your dental health. To eliminate tooth discomfort and restore your dental health quickly, make an appointment with Drs. Michael and Laura Ryan for the root canal therapy you need today. Ryan Dental Group proudly restores smiles daily throughout North Dallas, Allen, Lucas, Parker, McKinney, Fairview, Plano, and the surrounding communities.

What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is necessary when the inner pulp of your tooth is decayed or infected with bacteria.  In order to save the tooth, and alleviate inflammation, the inner pulp, nerves, bacteria, and decay are removed. Since the inner pulp is only needed during the development stage of your tooth, the empty space can be filled with specially medicated disinfectants and sealants to restore the tooth to its full form and function.

How Is Root Canal Therapy Completed?

Root canal therapy usually requires one to two appointments to complete. To start, Dr. Ryan will numb your tooth with a local anesthetic and place a rubber dam around the tooth to keep the area dry and free of saliva.  An access opening is then made at the crown of the tooth and a series of root canal files are placed into the opening to gently remove the infected the pulp, nerve tissue, and bacteria.  Once your tooth has been thoroughly cleaned, it will be shaped, filled, and sealed with either a permanent or temporary filling. Finally, your tooth will need to be restored with a dental crown or cap.  This will protect the tooth from future fracturing, and restore its natural functioning. Practicing good oral hygiene and keeping your semi-annual dental visits will serve well to prolong the life of your root canal treated teeth.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

October 10, 2014

If you are weighing your options for replacing a missing or damaged tooth, dental implants are a great place to start. Unlike partials and dentures, dental implants are permanent and unmovable so you don’t have to worry about daily cleaning and maintenance. Unlike dental bridges and crowns, dental implants will not affect the surrounding healthy teeth in your mouth. Dental implants also have the added benefit of replacing the root of your missing tooth, which helps you to maintain strong and healthy gums and prevent the movement or misalignment of neighboring teeth. Make an appointment with Drs. Michael and Laura Ryan of Ryan Dental Group today. They are experts in both preventative and restorative dentistry. Their experienced and compassionate dentistry proudly serves patients throughout Dallas, Allen, Lucas, Parker, McKinney, Fairview, Plano and surrounding communities.

Dental Implants

The dental implant process is very simple. A dental implant is a small titanium rod that is surgically implanted in the gums to replace the root of your missing tooth. Once the rod is placed, a prosthetic tooth that blends perfectly with your other teeth is attached to replace the missing tooth. Through the healing process, the bones in your jaw will grow around the implant, permanently securing it in your mouth.

Mini- Dental Implants

If the traditional dental implants described above aren’t a viable option for you, Dr. Ryan also offers mini-dental implants (MDI). These are tiny titanium implant posts that eliminate bone grafting, require no surgery and can be placed in one visit. The MDI fits firmly into a retaining mechanism in your gums to hold an attached denture in place.

July 11, 2014

shutterstock_99705527When it comes to your smile, there are many things that work together in order to achieve great oral health. No one thing works independently from the other, and it is important to make sure everything that contributes to your dazzling smile is healthy and strong. Many people may not know this, but your gums contribute a large amount in the overall health of your entire smile. Often put on the back burner, your gums are play a vital role, and when they are compromised, the result is never good. By offering periodontal disease therapy to their patients, Dr. Laura Ryan and Dr. Michael Ryan are able to make sure their patients’ smiles are always looking fantastic!

Periodontal disease therapy accounts for about 70 percent of tooth loss, and can cause many negative effects on your body. If left untreated, periodontal disease has the potential to cause or play a role in bone loss, heart disease, stroke, dementia, and etcetera. Some signs of periodontal disease are swollen or red gums, gums that bleed when you brush or floss, and gums that are sensitive.

One of the ways Drs. Ryan are able to help you with your periodontal disease is by scaling and root planing. This allows us to remove the bacteria and plaque from below your gum line. We will also be able to smooth out the surfaces of your root, so no additional bacteria is able to stay there. Also, we will give your gums some antibiotics to make sure the harmful bacterium is away for good! If you feel as though you suffer from periodontal disease, and you would like the help of Drs. Laura and Michael Ryan, contact our Allen, TX dental office, and we would love to help!

Give Your Gums the Star Treatment with Periodontal Disease Therapy

February 17, 2014

Healthy gums FTW!People often forget that to have a healthy result, one must have a healthy foundation. Many people believe that as long as your teeth are straight and white, they are healthy. Unfortunately, not much attention is paid to the gums, which are the most crucial contributors to a healthy smile. Gum (periodontal) disease is when your gums are under attack, and it can result in unhealthy teeth. Dr. Michael Ryan and Dr. Laura Ryan are dedicated to making sure your gums are as healthy as they can be, which is why they offer periodontal therapy to their patients.

Periodontal disease affects over 80% of the population, which makes it one of the more common diseases out there. One point that may be shocking is the fact that many people may not even be aware that they are suffering from periodontal disease, leaving their mouths to ongoing infection and deterioration. Some of the most common signs of periodontal disease are swollen gums, gums that bleed when you brush or floss, tenderness, and loose teeth. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to an increased risk in heart disease, stroke, dementia, and much, much more.

When you come in for your appointment, we will tackle your periodontal disease with scaling and root planing. These procedures allow us to remove plaque and tartar from below the gum line. This way, we are able to remove all of the harmful bacteria in areas that your toothbrush and flossing cannot reach, giving you a clear mouth! We will also be able to smooth the root surfaces, making it more difficult for tartar to build. We will give you antibiotics for your gum disease, helping your mouth heal, then close the appointment with instructions on how to better take care of your gums. If you’re interested in how Drs. Laura and Michael Ryan are able to help you with your periodontal disease, make an appointment at our office, and we’d be more than happy to help.

Root Canal Therapy with Drs. Laura and Michael Ryan

December 16, 2013

shutterstock_160305989Regardless of what you may have heard, root canals get rid of your pain; they do not cause pain. An infected tooth not only causes an immense amount of pain, but can be more of an expensive investment down the road if nothing is done. At Ryan Dental Group, we want to make sure we take care of all of your dental needs, and Drs. Michael and Laura Ryan is able help you along that journey!

Having a root canal done not only helps in getting rid of your pain, but it also benefits your teeth. A root canal is performed when there is an infected or decayed tooth, and the decomposition has to be removed before it gets any worse. The doctors commence your root canal by accessing the infected tooth, and removing the pulp. When the tooth is infected, it also infects the pulp of the tooth, causing it to exacerbate. Once the pulp of the tooth is removed, our doctors will fill the tooth with a tooth-colored filling, and top it with a crown to prevent any further corruption. In the end, you’re left feeling refreshed and in better oral health!

When you leave your teeth infected, not only can your mouth get worse, but it can affect you in other areas of your body. By delaying getting a root canal, the bacteria infecting your teeth can enter your blood stream, possibly causing destruction to the rest of your body. It’s better to take care of your oral issues sooner rather than later or it may get worse! If you’re wondering how Dr. Laura Ryan or Dr. Michael Ryan can help you by performing a root canal, contact our office and make an appointment!
