Sometimes a tooth becomes so damaged through decay or accident that it must be removed.

A simple tooth extraction involves removing the tooth and root from the jaw. Often this can be done with only a local anesthetic to manage any discomfort from the procedure.

Our team will make sure you are comfortable and at ease throughout the procedure and will help you have a trouble-free recover.


TMJ Disorder

Millions of Americans suffer from the effects of temporomandibular joint disorder. Are you one? Do you experience any of the following symptoms?

  • Headaches
  • Sore neck and shoulder muscles
  • Popping or clicking noises in the jaw joint
  • Difficulty opening or closing your mouth
  • Pain or tenderness of the jaw

Dr. Curalli can help restore the healthy function of your jaw and get rid of your pain!



If your tooth is damaged, whether it's from decay or injury, we can often save the healthy tooth structure with a dental crown.

A dental crown is a custom-designed cap that permanently covers the healthy part of your tooth structure. Our restorative dentist will ensure your crown looks and feel just like your surrounding teeth.

The benefits of saving your tooth with a crown include preserving bone structure, maintaining your bite and alignment, and preventing further damage.

Could you benefit from a dental crown? Meet with Dr. Curalli to find out!



Are you missing one or more teeth? A dental bridge may be the perfect solution to give you a full smile again.

A dental bridge consists of two or more dental crowns and one or more artificial teeth. The crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth gap and support your artificial teeth.

This treatment can not only restore your confidence but also help alleviate stress on your bite, prevent other teeth from shifting, and improve your ability to eat and talk.
