Restorative Dental Services
Our dentist does everything in his power to save a tooth. However, sometimes we’ll need to extract a tooth as a last resort to protect your oral health. Before emergency tooth extraction, we’ll take x-rays to determine the best method for pulling teeth.
Your teeth are held in place by roots that go into the jaw. However, if you have a cavity that’s deep enough to breach the inner layer of your tooth (pulp), you may need an emergency root canal. During root canal therapy, our dentist removes infection and seals your tooth.
Dentures are a removable oral appliance that give you the appearance of healthy teeth and gums. Our dentist may recommend you wear dentures if you recently lost teeth or had dental extraction. Dentures make it easier to smile, talk, and eat with confidence after tooth loss.
Tired of dentures that slip? Ask our dentist if you’re a candidate for implant supported dentures. We use dental implants to anchor an entire upper and/or lower arch of teeth. Unlike dentures that sit on top of your gums, implant supported dentures are secured by implants.
Our dentist can replace a missing tooth with a dental bridge. Like the name suggests, a dental bridge literally bridges the gap left in your smile by a missing tooth. A dental bridge usually consists of a false tooth held in place by two anchoring teeth capped with dental crowns.
Our dentist may recommend a dental crown to strengthen a fragile tooth after a root canal or large filling. We may also recommend a dental crown if you fractured your tooth from a blow to the face or need to cover an implant.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root (typically made of titanium) used to anchor a crown. If you’ve recently lost a tooth, we recommend scheduling an appointment with our dental implant dentist as soon as possible. Our dentist can help you explore your tooth replacement options, including dental implants.
Our dentist offers same day dental crowns for your convenience. In the past, dentists had to solely rely on outside labs for dental crowns. Today, we’re able to plan and place your dental crown in one appointment so you can leave our office with your new smile.
