Healthy teeth are the starting point for overall health. Missing and damaged teeth can affect function, limiting speech and food choices. Missing teeth can disintegrate your jawbone and cause severe shifting. Damaged and infected teeth can similarly deteriorate your oral and overall health if left untreated.

The words “root canal” has been known to strike fear into the hearts of patients. But at Mass Bay Dental in Salem, MA, there is nothing to fear. We use cutting-edge technology and anesthesia to make root canals a pain-free and comfortable experience.
Root canals are performed when the tooth’s root is damaged by decay or infected. The area must be expertly removed, cleaned, and sealed. In the case that the infection is too severe, the tooth may need to be removed and replaced with a dental implant.
A dental implant is a titanium screw that acts as the base for artificial crowns. Mass Bay Dental can create strong bonds between the titanium screw and the jawbone so that the artificial dental crown lasts a long time.
At our dental office in Salem, MA, we take a conservative approach towards tooth removal. While it is a routine procedure, it can lead to negative effects if the teeth are not replaced. For this reason, we only perform tooth extractions when absolutely necessary for a patient’s oral health. We also perform wisdom tooth removals when they are impacted, unable to erupt properly, or infected. Supernumerary teeth and crowding can be corrected through extraction by Mass Bay Dental. While not extractions require surgery, teeth that are strongly rooted or not fully erupted will require surgery. All extractions are performed under anesthesia to make sure that your dental visit is not unpleasant.
Mass Bay Dental is proud to offer expertly performed surgical procedures. For more information about oral surgery, or to schedule a consultation, call Mass Bay Dental today. We offer dental services to patients in Salem, MA and surrounding areas.
