Repair And Restoration For Your Damaged Or Missing Teeth
Restorative dentistry repairs the damage caused by tooth loss, dental decay, trauma, or neglect. Your treatment solutions can include dental implants, dental crowns, dental bridges, dentures, and root canals.
Single Tooth Implants
Replace a Single Tooth Following Tooth Loss
A dental implant provides a solid, new tooth when you’ve experienced tooth loss. Your implant is placed within your jawbone and adapts to your tissue to form a new tooth root.
Once your implant site heals adequately a post and dental crown are attached to create a new tooth structure and restore full function. Your dental implant is a long-lasting tooth replacement solution that can function for more than 10 years and will often outlast fixed bridgework.
Cosmetic Dental Implants
Restore Your Appearance and Tooth Function After Tooth Loss
The look and function of your natural teeth are restored with cosmetic dental implants. Your implant is secured to your jawbone to provide a solid anchor point for your new visible tooth structure.
Your tooth is replaced with a tooth-colored, porcelain dental crown above your gum line. The implant forms an appealing and fully functioning new tooth.
You’ll experience renewed confidence following dental implant treatment. The procedure will create a radiant, new smile.
Porcelain Dental Crowns
A Natural-Looking Tooth Replacement
Porcelain dental crowns look like your natural teeth. The tooth-colored materials blend with your surrounding teeth.
A porcelain crown replaces the surface portion of your damaged or decayed tooth. The porcelain used mimics the way light reflects and shines through your natural, unrestored tooth.
Your porcelain crown is also more durable. It will outlast a standard metal to porcelain crown.
Fill Your Missing Tooth Gap and Prevent Your Teeth From Shifting
A dental bridge is a common missing tooth replacement. Your dental bridge is a cost-effective and strong solution for closing the gap between your existing teeth and missing tooth.
Dental bridges rely on the anchoring of two existing, healthy teeth. The treatment prevents tooth movement and restores your ability to speak, chew, and maintain your facial structure.
You have options when selecting a dental bridge for tooth replacement.
A traditional bridge uses either dental crowns or dental implants for support on either side of your missing tooth.
A cantilever dental bridge provides a solution when you have surrounding, supportive teeth on one side of your missing tooth location.
Your dental bridge treatment can require a period of two to three weeks to complete. The treatment can restore function for many years.
Save Your Tooth and Reduce Your Oral Infection Risk
Using modern dental technology, root canal treatments can be done painlessly. Root canal treatment replaces the inner pulp of your tooth that has been damaged by decay and infection. A toothache or swelling is an indication that your tooth is at risk and can benefit from root canal therapy. By opting to have a root canal treatment done you will not have to have the infected tooth removed.
Your root canal procedure removes the infected area within your tooth, prevents the infection from spreading, and eliminates the pain associated with the infection. A crown build-up is used to restore the center portion of your tooth.
A dental crown is then crafted and placed on the treated tooth. This restores your tooth to full function and strength.
Functional Replacement for Total or Partial Tooth Loss
A denture that’s properly made can be an effective way to enhance your smile. The treatment can also provide you a more youthful appearance.
Dentures fully restore your tooth function following the loss of all your teeth. Your dentures look natural and can be fitted to your upper jaw, your lower jaw, or both.
Partial dentures have two options. You can have them fixed or have them be removable depending on your specific tooth loss circumstances.
Fitting your dentures effectively and comfortably can require a series of dental appointments. With proper care and follow-up appointments your dentures are designed to last for up to seven years.
Implant-Supported Overdentures And Hybrid Dentures
Secure Dentures that Stay in Place
Implant-supported over-dentures are designed to snap onto a post secured by a single dental implant. Four implants are strategically placed to provide a secure anchor for your fitted denture.
Your implant-supported denture will remain secure and in place. You will be able to eat and speak without fear of your denture loosening or shifting on your gum tissue.
The over-denture provides you a secure and natural looking tooth replacement. Your over-denture is also removable, making it easier to clean.
