Root Canal Procedure

“Root Canal” has become a scary term for dental patients to hear, but the benefits of the procedure and advances in dental technology have made it much less frightening. When a tooth becomes infected it is usually related to the nerves in the root of the tooth. The infected nerves need to then be removed and this is done with a root canal. At Advantage Dentistry our staff will save your tooth after we’ve determined that you are a candidate for the procedure.

The root canal procedure requires one or more office visits and can be performed right here in the office. The first step in the procedure is to take an X-ray to see the shape of the root canals and determine if there are any signs of infection in the surrounding bone. You will receive anesthesia as necessary, once the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, it needs to be sealed. If the root canal is not completed on the same day, a temporary filling will be placed in the exterior hole in the tooth to keep contaminants out between appointments. When all of the work is completed, the root canal procedure should relieve the pain you feel.

If you are experiencing sensitive tooth pain, give us a call. To learn more about root canals as well as other services we provide at the office, visit for more information. To schedule an appointment with one of our dentists at Advantage Dentistry in Kenmore, NY, call 716-877-2275.

Invisalign at Advantage Dentistry

At Advantage Dentistry we offer our patients Invisalign so that they can straighten their smile invisibly. With Invisalign treatment, metal mouth is a thing of the past, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements our dentists plan out for you.

A typical Invisalign treatment requires 20 to 30 aligners for both the upper and lower teeth. Most patients complete their treatment in less than one year. However, treatment depends on the specific alignment problem. For mild cases of crooked teeth and protruding teeth, to much more difficult dental problems involving serious malocclusion, overbite, or underbite, Invisalign effectively corrects a wide variety of dental problems. Whether your teeth are widely gapped, overly crowded or somewhere in between, Invisalign has an affordable teeth straightening option for you.

If you are searching to straighten your smile, give us a call or visit for more information about Invisalign. To book an appointment with one of our dentists at Advantage Dentistry in Kenmore, NY, call 716-877-2275.

Snoring Appliances at Advantage Dentistry

Occasional snoring is usually not very serious and is more so a nuisance to your bed partner. However, if you are a habitual snorer, you not only disrupt the sleep patterns of your loved one, but you also impair your own sleep quality. Snoring occurs when the flow of air through the mouth and nose is physically obstructed. When this happens, our staff at Advantage Dentistry can offer a variety of snoring appliances so that you can clear your airway and sleep like a baby.

Snoring is one of the symptoms of a health condition known as sleep apnea, a disorder that can be hard to identify. The problem with sleep apnea is that it is a severe condition requiring immediate treatment. Because of this, our dental professionals at Advantage Dentistry must determine if the snoring problem signifies the presence of sleep apnea as early as possible. Oral devices are useful in correcting mild to moderate cases of obstructive sleep apnea. At Advantage Dentistry we can recommend one that suits your particular needs and fit it in the safest way.

If you have disrupted your sleeping partner one too many times with your snoring, give us a call to discuss your treatment options or visit for more information about the services we offer. To book an appointment with one of our dentists at Advantage Dentistry in Kenmore, NY, call 716-877-2275.
