Bridges

If you've lost teeth due to accident, injury, or gum disease, we can create a fixed bridge to restore your solid smile. A bridge not only fills the gap, but it also prevents repositioning of remaining teeth. It can also correct a misaligned bite, improve chewing function and speech articulation, and provide internal structure for the face to give you a more youthful appearance. A bridge is a prosthetic tooth (or teeth) that attaches on one or both sides to teeth prepared with dental crowns. A fixed bridge is joined onto the neighboring abutment teeth (crowned teeth) and consists of three basic units: the false tooth or teeth (called a pontic) and two abutment crowns. The style of bridge we suggest will depend upon the strength and health of the abutment teeth, as well as the location of the gap in relation to the rest of your dentition. If healthy adjacent abutment teeth aren't available, a surgically-implanted metal post, known as a dental implant, may offer a solid alternative. For a bridge that replaces many teeth, we may recommend a removable partial denture or implant-supported prosthesis. With proper care, a fixed bridge may last many years.

Extractions

What Is It? Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. What It's Used For If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, your dentist will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment. Sometimes, though, there's too much damage for the tooth to be repaired. In this case, the tooth needs to be extracted. A very loose tooth also will require extraction if it can't be saved, even with bone replacement surgery (bone graft). Here are other reasons:
  • Sometimes baby teeth don't fall out in time to allow the permanent teeth to come in.
  • People getting braces may need teeth extracted to create room for the teeth that are being moved into place.
  • People receiving radiation to the head and neck may need to have teeth in the field of radiation extracted.
  • People receiving cancer drugs may develop infected teeth because these drugs weaken the immune system. Infected teeth may need to be extracted.
  • Some teeth decay so badly they need extraction.
  • If you expect to have treatment with intravenous drugs called bisphosphonates for a medical condition, be sure to see your dentist.

Nitrous

Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. Nitrous oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option your dentist offers to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. It is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes you should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. You may feel light-headed or a tingling in your arms and legs. Some people say their arms and legs feel heavy. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed. Talk to your dentist about whether nitrous oxide would be a good option for you.

Veneers

Dental veneers are a possible solution to help you achieve the look you desire. They are a popular choice for those with chipped teeth, a gap between teeth, or misshaped teeth. Dental veneers are thin covers that adhere to teeth to give teeth a more classically shaped look. Our practice offer a variety of dental veneer options to choose from. Talk to your dentist about what’s best for you.

Cerec Same-Day Crown

New procedures make it possible to provide crowns in a single day. CEREC is a special procedure that provides:
  • Single visit convenience, so no need for temporaries
  • No uncomfortable impression trays
  • Beautiful color-matched ceramic
  • Enamel-like materials for a natural look and feel
  • Clinically proven results in millions of restorations worldwide

Root Canals

When soft tissue inside the root canal becomes inflamed or infected, you may need treatment to correct the problem. Inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, an injury to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. This common procedure is a staple among our highly trained staff. We provide the highest level of care and comfort during the process, and work to deliver the best possible dental health we can.
