Crowns and Bridges
A crown is a cap that covers a tooth, when a tooth is cracked, weakened by a large restoration, traumatic injury or by wear and tear. It allows the bite to be more evenly distributed over the remaining tooth structure. This effectively reduces the risk of fracture in the future.
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns for teeth on either side of the gap, and a false tooth/teeth in between.
Bridges restore the look of your smile and the function of your dentition.
If you are missing a tooth or teeth, a dental implant is placed permanently in a jaw to replace the missing tooth root and to support the crown placed on it. It looks, acts and feels like a real tooth, is safe and predictable. Dental implants can provide permanent, stable, attractive, replacement teeth for your lifelong smile.
Dentures and Implant Supported Dentures
Dentures are a set of artificial teeth used when a patient has lost real teeth. They help give better chewing abilities and offer support to your facial structures, preserving your youthful appearance. There are several different types of removable dentures, cast or plastic type. Every patient has to have different treatment options. Remember, dentures are not a permanent solution to tooth loss. Dental implants are. Dental implants can be used to stabilize and support existing denture. Talk to us about it!
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment involves removing damaged or dead nerves and blood vessels in the tooth root that have become infected due to decay, trauma or cracks. The space left is then filled with a material that seals the tooth and keeps it functioning normally.
Repairing the root canal is the way to save the entire tooth and help you keep your natural smile for life!
