Missing teeth can take a toll on not only your oral health, but your mental well-being as well. Boost your confidence and skip dentures with long-lasting dental implants. Unlike other tooth replacement options, implants are permanently embedded into your jawbone to provide natural stimulation and the look of real teeth.
A vulnerable tooth, whether from a root canal or injury, requires protection to prevent further breakage or the introduction of new decay. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” placed over teeth to restore shape, size, strength, and overall appearance.
When one or more teeth are lost, a noticeable gap is created. This can make eating and speaking difficult while also putting you at risk for further bone or tooth loss. A dental bridge can, quite literally, “bridge” the gap left by missing teeth and help you smile confidently around others.
Full and Partial Dentures
Whether a few or all of your natural teeth are gone, our dentist can provide you with either removable full or partial dentures. Once properly fitted inside your mouth, dentures can give you back the ability to chew and talk comfortably. Both consist of false teeth attached to a gum-colored base connected by a metal framework that rests on top of your natural gumline.
It used to be that when you had a cavity filled, the obvious metal on your teeth after the procedure was proof to the world. Now, our dentist uses tooth-colored fillings made of composite resin for a low-key alternative to traditional metal amalgam fillings. Thanks to their durability, tooth-colored fillings can be used to treat cavities on front and back teeth.
Primarily reserved for patients who have experienced some form of trauma to the mouth or neglected their oral health, full-mouth reconstruction can dramatically improve your smile. Also known as full-mouth rehabilitation, this type of treatment can involve multiple procedures to aid a damaged jaw, replace missing teeth, and more.
Root Canal Therapy
Do you feel pain in your tooth or notice gum sensitivity or swelling? You could be in need of root canal therapy. Our dentist will carefully remove the infected or damaged pulp from inside the tooth, reseal it, and place a dental crown if necessary.
Scaling and Root Planing
While early stages of gum disease are reversible, later stages are long-term and must be maintained for the sake of your oral health. Scaling and root planing is a procedure used by our dentist to thoroughly deep clean below the gumline. Depending on the severity of your condition, this treatment may require multiple visits and the use of a local anesthetic.
No one wants to hear that they need a tooth removed but sometimes it’s necessary when the tooth is past the point of saving. Our dentist will recommend tooth extraction if there is extensive decay, advanced gum disease, a dental abscess, or another condition that prevents the use of other restorative procedures.
