Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth. They are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile. They are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. They are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth.
Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontal disease (also called gum disease) is more common than you may think. If you’ve been diagnosed, you can rest easy knowing that our team has extensive experience with periodontal disease and has successfully treated many patients.
Crowns & Bridges
A crown can help strengthen a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining to hold the filling. Crowns can also be used to attach bridges, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It’s also used to cover a dental implant.
Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health.
Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases. We design a partial denture for you. A partial denture may have a metal framework and clasps that connect to your teeth, or they can have other connectors that are more natural looking. In some cases, a removable partial denture is made to attach to your natural teeth with devices called precision attachments.
Diagnosis, prevention and treatment of oral diseases. We suggest a treatment plan to restore teeth that are decayed, chipped, cracked, discolored or even missing. Teeth that are affected by any of these developmental or trauma-related defects can qualify for restorative care. Whether it's a filling, crown, implant or bridge, there are several options available depending on need.
The association between dietary factors and adverse oral health outcomes is multi-factorial and complex with inter-related pathways between dietary intake, nutritional status, and lifestyle behaviors. Patients will be informed that not only the types of carbohydrates but how the frequency, consistency, and position of their consumption in meals can increase risk of dental caries.
Oral surgery treats a wide range of diseases and conditions, including: Tooth loss, Wisdom teeth extraction, Dental Implants, TJD, Unequal jaw growth, Jaw/mouth/teeth injury, Cleft lip and cleft palate repair, Extraction of teeth, Treatment of endodontal diseases, Esthetic aspects of the oral & maxillofacial regions, and Adjunctive treatments.
If your teeth are crowded, protrusive, spaced too far apart, meet in an abnormal way, or do not meet at all, correction may be recommended. Braces and aligners are the appliances commonly used to guide your teeth into their proper positions. Retainers preserve and stabilize the results of your orthodontic treatment.
Home Care Instruction
Spending the right amount of time engaged in appropriate home oral care is undoubtedly essential to helping minimize the risk of caries and periodontal disease. A beautiful, healthy smile that lasts a lifetime is our ultimate goal when treating patients. Your personal home care plays an important role in achieving that goal.
When considering mouthguards for both dental protection and concussion prevention, a custom-made guard is the best defense. While over-the-counter mouthguards may be more accessible, a mouthguard made by your dentist offers the best fit and coverage for your mouth.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is an often straightforward procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth. We carefully remove the pulp inside the tooth, clean, disinfect and shape the root canals, and place a filling to seal the space. Patients typically need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth.
A sealant is a thin, protective coating (made from plastic or other dental materials) that adheres to the chewing surface of your back teeth. They’re no substitute for brushing and flossing, but they can keep cavities from forming and may even stop early stages of decay from becoming a full-blown cavity.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects the jaw to the temporal bones of the skull. Temporomandibular joint disorder, known more commonly as TMD, occurs when there are problems with the muscles and jaws in the face. We can help make a proper diagnosis and treatment.
Tobacco use is an important risk factor for advanced periodontitis, poor response to periodontal therapy, oral neoplasms, and dental implant failure. Given the effect of tobacco use on oral health, our dental office willy be an ideal place for tobacco cessation intervention.
