Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy)
Root canal therapy is necessary when a tooth is infected and will not heal on its own. Symptoms include pain when biting and chewing, sensitivity with hot and cold, and constant aching and discomfort. A lot of people are intimidated when they hear the word “root canal”, but at our office there is no need to be afraid. Dr. Bob has been performing this procedure for many years and you will be surprised at how easy and painless it is. Most general dentists will refer you to an Endodontic specialist, and in some complex cases we may need to refer you to an Endodontist too, but the majority of the time we can take care of this problem for you. This will save you time, extra doctor’s visits, and usually even a little money!

Periodontics (Gum Disease)
Gum Disease affects many Americans and is the leading cause of tooth loss in this country. On your first visit you will receive a thorough periodontal examination. If you have periodontal disease, our hygienists are able to treat you over a couple of appointments. It may be in the very early stages (gingivitis) or it may be more advanced. Regardless, we will work with you to restore your gum health and prevent any further damage. In addition, we will consistently monitor you to make sure everything looks good at regular check-ups.

TMJ Therapy
TMJ is the abbreviation for Temporomandibular Joint. This joint allows you to move your mouth and jaw. The muscles and nerves around this joint can become irritated and swollen causing symptoms of clicking, popping, pain or difficulty when opening and closing your mouth, headaches, and severe facial pain. There are various reasons why this occurs, but if you think you have a problem with your jaw we have several ways to treat this condition. We can diagnose your individual symptoms and then prescribe the most effective treatment.

Dentures/Partials
Dentures and partials are removable replacements for missing and extracted teeth that closely resemble natural teeth and gums. We understand the emotional effect of the appearance of your smile, especially when you have teeth missing, so going even a day without a denture or partial is very uncomfortable. Whether you need an old appliance replaced, or you need to be fit for your first, we have an excellent lab right here in Omaha that will work with us to get your appliance as quickly as possible, usually within a few days.

Implants
In addition to dentures and partials, an alternative to replace missing teeth are implants. Implants are typically done to replace a single missing tooth, but if you have several missing teeth you may still be a candidate. We coordinate our implants cases with an experienced oral surgeon. The oral surgeon will screw an artificial root into your bone, and after a healing period we will attach a crown to that implant. The results are more permanent, maintain your bone health, and look more realistic.

Whitening
There are many ways to whiten teeth, both over the counter and by dental professionals. At Eagle Run West Dental, we offer three levels of whitening:
- Crest Whitestrips Supreme®, four times stronger than OTC strips
- Custom bleaching trays for use at home with professional strength bleach
- Britesmile® laser whitening

All three are very effective whitening procedures. Call the office to get more information on which option is right for you.

Orthodontics
Dr. Bob has performed traditional orthodontics (metal braces & brackets) at their rural practices for several years. More recently they decided that Invisalign® was an effective and revolutionary technique that offers an “invisible” alternative to traditional braces. Our office has become one of the top Invisalign® providers in the Omaha area. This clear alternative to traditional metal braces can be used for both teens and adults. Schedule your consultation to find out if you are a candidate.
