At Baldwinsville Gentle Dentistry, we welcome any and all patients no matter the status of their oral health. We never want our patients to feel that they cannot come to our office for treatment because they are embarrassed about the state of their oral health. No matter if you have not visited a dentist for quite some time for a hygiene examination or you are experiencing multiple dental issues, we would love to see you in our office. We hate to hear that patients feel they are too old or have too many dental issues. It is never too late! There is always a solution to any problem you might be having, and we can work together to come up with a plan.

Thanks to movies, television shows, and popular culture, root canals are often depicted as extremely uncomfortable, which leaves patients terrified when this tooth-saving treatment is recommended. While a root canal is a more involved procedure, it really is no more difficult than a dental cleaning or filling.
