We offer solutions for a lot of different types of dental needs.
A bridge is a PERMANENT solution for replacing a missing tooth (or several teeth) by joining an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth. It bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. Types of bridges may vary.
A crown is a cosmetic restoration used to improve your tooth’s shape or to strengthen a tooth. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or have portions destroyed by tooth decay. It is cemented onto the damaged tooth that fully covers the portion of your tooth above the gum line. The crown becomes your tooth’s new outer surface.
Dentures are natural looking replacement teeth that are removable. Full dentures are given to patients when all natural teeth have been removed.
A digital x-ray is the newest technology used to take dental x-rays. This technique uses an electronic sensor (instead of film) that captures and stores the digital image on a computer.
Extractions can be considered simple or surgical. A simple extraction is performed on a tooth seen in the mouth. A surgical extraction is a more complex procedure and may be done by a general dentist or an oral surgeon.
Fillings are a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to it’s normal function and shape. When a dentist gives you a filling, he/she first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, then fills the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.
