Dental implants are natural-looking artificial teeth that replace missing teeth or are used to attach fixed prosthetics to the mouth. Implants require meticulous cleaning and maintenance in order to stay effective and healthy, but results are long-lasting and attractive. To be a good candidate for implants, a patient must have healthy gums and sufficient bone. To find out if dental implants are right for you, please contact our practice today.
The most commonly performed endodontic procedure (designed to save teeth with traumatized or damaged nerves) is a root canal. A root canal saves a tooth by removing from it diseased or injured pulp. Each tooth contains dental pulp, a long strand of nutrients and nerves that extends down to the tooth’s root. Damaged pulp can cause a tooth to fall out or die, so during a root canal, a hole is drilled in the tooth’s crown, the injured pulp is removed or reshaped, and the tooth is capped. Root canals are relatively easy procedures that provide worthwhile results. To learn more about endodontics, please contact our practice today.
A smile can be dulled by stained, chipped, cracked or misaligned teeth, but bonding can quickly and painlessly restore your smile’s natural beauty. During the procedure, a thin coating of plastic or resin is painted over the damaged teeth, strengthening them and making them virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. To find out if bonding is the right option for you, please contact us today.
An excellent alternative to crowns, veneers conceal chips, stains, cracks, and other tooth imperfections. These thin, customized shells slide over the front of teeth, increasing durability. Veneers are natural-looking and long-lasting. To learn more about veneers, please contact us today.
Pediatric Dental Care
Just because a child’s baby teeth are going to fall out someday doesn’t mean that children don’t need to have good, early dental care. Baby teeth can have cavities and they may need to be treated. We know that baby teeth are important as space holders until your child’s permanent teeth come in. Just as your oral health is part of your whole body health, so is your child’s oral health important. Bring your questions about fluoridation, thumb sucking, and diet so that you can help your child develop a full set of teeth that will be just as beautiful as those small, precious teeth you watched appear one by one.
