A dental crown (sometimes called a “tooth cap” by our patients) covers the entire visible portion of your tooth above the gum line. Our dentists may recommend porcelain crowns for teeth that are fragile, broken, or discolored.
If you’ve recently lost a tooth, our dentists may suggest a dental bridge to repair your smile. To be a candidate, you must have healthy natural teeth or dental implants on both sides of the empty socket.
A dental implant is a metal post (usually titanium) that acts like a natural tooth root would to support a crown. If you have missing teeth, you owe it to yourself to schedule a consultation with one of our dental implant dentists.
Dentures are removable false teeth you wear during the day to eat and talk. Our dentists can help you determine whether you need full or partial dentures based on your oral health. For example, you may only need a partial denture to replace a few upper teeth.
Our dentists do everything in their power to save a tooth. However, sometimes tooth extraction is necessary to protect oral health. The sooner you see our emergency dentists for tooth pain, the more likely we’ll be able to avoid dental extraction.
Full Mouth Restorations
Interested in a smile makeover? During your consultation, one of our dentists will be able to walk you through the process of what it would take to restore your teeth, gums, and jaws. Our dentists focus on the entire mouth to improve your oral health and quality of life.
Gum Disease Treatments
Approximately 47.2% of Americans age 30 and older have periodontal disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Gum disease is caused by untreated plaque buildup.
Our dentists offer oral surgery so you can maintain healthy teeth, gums, and jaws. Depending on what you need, our dentists may handle your oral surgery or refer you to the appropriate specialist.
Root Canal Therapy
Don’t ignore tooth pain. If you suspect you have an abscess tooth, you’ll need to call our office as soon as possible to schedule emergency dental care. Once a cavity is deep enough to breach the living tissue inside your tooth, you’ll need to schedule a root canal.
Scaling & Root Planing
If you have periodontal disease, our dentists will recommend scaling and root planing. People with periodontal disease often have deep gum pockets around their teeth that collect food particles and plaque.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge that connects your jawbone to your skull. If you have persistent jaw pain, this may be a sign that there’s something wrong with the TMJ. Our dentists will be able to help you find TMJ relief to improve quality of life.
Wisdom teeth are given their name because they erupt through the gum line between the ages of 17 and 25. Most people simply don’t have the space in their jaws to accommodate these extra teeth, which is why they call our dentists.
