Whether you’re missing one, two, or all your teeth, dental implants are a great way to restore the look and overall health of your smile. When teeth are missing, it can lead to bone and tooth loss as well as a shift in your bite. Changes in your facial appearance are also possible, so in order to prevent this from happening, we can surgically place one or more implants to stimulate the jawbone and give you a full, complete, natural-looking smile.
Dental Fillings and Crowns
When decay or damage plagues a tooth, either a filling or dental crown is usually recommended to fix the problem. Should a cavity develop and remains small, composite resin can be used to fill the area once it is cleaned. This will seal off the area from further reinfection and blend in beautifully with your smile. If the cavity is too large or severe damage has occurred to a tooth, a dental crown can be placed over the weakened tooth to protect and help keep it intact.
If surgical procedures like dental implants are exactly what you had in mind, full or partial dentures can give you back your smile. Whether it’s a few or a full arch of missing teeth, traditional dentures make it possible to recapture your smile. If you require a partial, metal clips or clasps will be used to help keep it in place. If you need a full denture to restore your smile, your natural suction will serve to hold your denture in place, but many patients find added security in using a denture adhesive as well.
It is our goal to help you keep your natural teeth for as long as possible; however, there are situations when a tooth extraction may be necessary. If a tooth is too severely decayed, gum disease is too far advanced, or serious injury has occurred, it might be in your best interest to have the tooth extracted and replaced. Using safe and effective tools and treatment, we can carefully and quickly remove a tooth and improve your oral health. Once you’re healed, we can begin to discuss ways to replace your missing tooth.
If you’re experiencing gum recession, you’re not alone. This occurs when the gums begin to pull away from the teeth and happens most frequently in patients who suffer from gum disease. To prevent the recession from worsening, we can use the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique to provide a less invasive treatment option. By gently stretching and reshaping the gum line, we can cover the exposed tooth structure and give you a healthier smile.
When an infection reaches the innermost layer of your tooth (the pulp), it can cause immense pain and discomfort. To keep from having to perform a tooth extraction, our team may suggest a root canal. By cleaning the area and removing the infected and decayed pulp, we can fill the tooth with composite resin and seal it off from further reinfection or damage. We can then place a dental crown over the weakened tooth, which will encourage it to rebuild over time.
Chronic jaw pain can be debilitating if left untreated. Not to mention frequent headaches, a stiff neck and shoulders, and excessive wear and tear on your teeth. All these symptoms are associated with TMJ or temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). If you come to us with these symptoms, we can offer TMJ Therapy, which is the use of an occlusal splint, otherwise known as a mouthguard. These custom-made devices can be used to protect teeth from coming into contact with each other as well as relax the facial muscles that are causing your severe jaw pain.
