One of the questions we're often asked is "what's the difference between a crown and a bridge"? Crowns and most Bridges are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants.

Root Canal Therapy (RCT) is the most common type of Endodontic treatment. Root Canal Therapy refers to a treatment where the infected, injured or dead pulp that surrounds the nerves in your teeth is removed.
