See our Root Canals page for the different great services we have to get the treatment your teeth deserve.

Root canal therapy is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected.

Root canal therapy is performed when the pulp which is composed of nerves and blood vessels in the tooth becomes infected or damaged. During root canal therapy, the pulp is removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
People fear root canals because they assume they are painful. Actually, most people report that the procedure itself is no more painful than having a filling placed. The discomfort experienced in the period leading up to seeking dental care is truly painful, not the procedure itself.
See our Extractions page for the different great services we have to get the treatment your teeth deserve.

A tooth extraction, or exodontia, is the removal of a tooth. Reasons for a tooth extraction include decayed or broken teeth. They may also be removed to make room for other teeth or an orthodontia treatment. Throughout history, tooth removal has been used to treat a variety of illnesses before the discovery of antibiotics as chronic tooth infections were linked to a number of ailments. There are two main types of tooth extractions: simple extractions and surgical extractions. Simple extractions are performed on visible teeth in the mouth under local anesthesia. The tooth is loosened from its socket and then removed with dental forceps. Surgical extraction is a more complicated procedure done on teeth that have broken under the gum line or have not fully erupted and is generally done under general anesthesia. Find out more about tooth extractions and removal, postoperative care, and potential complications.
See our Implants page for the different great services we have to get the treatment your teeth deserve.

When teeth decay, they may at times fall out. If this happens, your dentist may recommend a dental implant. Dental implants replace the root of the tooth and have many advantages over older treatments. They look and feel real, are comfortable, make eating and talking easier, are durable, and much more. These are not always covered by insurance, so check with your provider before deciding on dental implants. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about why dental implants are done, how the procedure is performed, and much more.
See our Cosmetic page for the different great services we have to get the treatment your teeth deserve.

Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.

Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you with your dentist.
See our Sedation page for the different great services we have to get the treatment your teeth deserve.
When it comes to sedation dentistry, Phoenix Arizona relies on the caring and kindness of Legends Family Dental because we understand that dental phobia is very real and extremely common. Many people fear dental visits because of low pain tolerance, instant gag reflexes, difficulty getting numb and other reasons. For these types of patients we offer sedation dentistry in Arizona. Ask yourself:

1) Are you scared or afraid of going to the dentist?
2) Does just going there make you anxious?
3) Overwhelmed by thoughts of repeated visits to the dentist?
4) Do you have difficulty getting numb?
5) Do you gag easily?
6) Are you delaying dental treatment that you want or need for any reason?
