Our General Dentistry includes procedures like fillings, crowns, and implants to give you optimal oral health and comfort.
Patients today have several esthetic choices when it comes to selecting materials to repair missing, worn, damaged or decayed teeth.
Dental implants can offer a treatment option that will look and feel as natural as your original teeth. Surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants integrate with the jawbone and serve as a base for individual tooth replacement or to support a bridge or denture.
A crown supports your tooth when there isn’t enough natural tooth structure left. A crown can also protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that is already broken. This treatement option is a good way to aesthetically cover teeth that are discolored or misshapen. It is also the best option available to protect a tooth that has had a root canal.
Bridges are one option to replace missing teeth to restore your bite, while alleviating the stress on your remaining dentition. Bridges are a great treatment option when teeth on either side of the missing tooth require the protection of crown.
Early Intervention Orthodontics
There are several procedures and appliances that can help with crowding and crooked teeth while children are younger. They may minimize the comprehensive orthodontic treatment required in the future and in some cases eliminate the need for conventional orthodontic treatment altogether.
Partial and Full Dentures
Dentures are a removable treatment option often used to replace missing teeth and restore a functional bite. If you’ve lost all or even some of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, complete or partial dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile.
Root Canal Therapy
When the nerve of your tooth becomes infected or abscessed, a root canal treatment lets you keep the tooth rather than having to pull it out. Keeping your natural tooth helps to prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line which can lead to jaw problems. Saving a natural tooth avoids having to replace it with implant or bridge.
When having an extraction, todays’ modern procedures and follow up care, as recommended by your dentist, are there to provide you great benefit and comfort.
