Made from titanium alloy, dental implants are screw-like posts that function as artificial tooth roots. If you’re missing a tooth, our dentists can surgically embed an implant into the jawbone and place a dental crown on top to produce a natural-looking result. Because of how they’re inserted, there’s no risk of the implant slipping or needing special care besides regular brushing and flossing.
Broken, cracked, or otherwise weakened teeth are best served by a protective dental crown. You can think of them as tooth-shaped helmets with their main purpose being to restore size, strength, and appearance. Our dentists may place a crown for multiple reasons, such as when a tooth is left vulnerable after a large cavity.
A gap left behind by one or more missing teeth can easily be filled with a fixed dental bridge. Commonly consisting of a false tooth, or pontic, situated in between two dental crowns, a bridge is made to seamlessly blend in with the rest of your smile. Our dentists will make sure the supporting teeth on either side of the gap are prepared to receive crowns before moving forward with the procedure.
Unfortunately, cavities can happen. When they do, our dentists are ready to repair your tooth with a composite resin filling. This type of dental filling consists of tooth-colored material that when placed, is indiscernible amongst the rest of your teeth. No one will know you’ve had a cavity and your tooth will be decay-free. It’s a win-win.
If you’re looking for a less permanent but still beautiful way to replace a few teeth or even an entire arch, dentures may be the solution for you. Our dentists offer both full and partial dentures depending on what you need. Either choice is removable but should be cared for when not in use to avoid cracking or warping.
Infected or abscessed teeth need treatment immediately. If they are ignored, you could risk a spreading infection, jawbone damage, or tooth extraction. To help get rid of pain and restore the health of your tooth, our dentists will remove the inflamed pulp from the inner portion of the root canal, hence the name of the procedure.
Saving teeth is the number one priority of our dentists. However, sometimes the damage done to a tooth is severe enough that it’s beyond our repair. The next best option then becomes tooth extraction which fortunately, is a straightforward procedure accomplished with a local anesthetic. After your tooth is out, we can discuss replacement options to pursue once the area is fully healed.
Other than practicing daily oral hygiene, it can be impossible to plan for or prevent a dental emergency. For those times when a tooth is knocked out, broken, or causing you intense pain, our team of emergency dentists are here to help. Most urgent oral problems are time-sensitive so it’s important that you call our office ASAP to receive prompt care.
