Dental Tooth Implants

 

Implants

Implants are titanium structures that are placed in the area that a tooth normally occupied in the bone. Implants are anchored to the jawbone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Veneers

 

Veneers

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color, shape or size. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces, odd shapes, unevenly spaced or crooked.

Crowns & Bridges

 

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain to be placed on top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth to full function.

Teeth Whitening

 

Teeth Whitening

Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth. The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or thinks like coffee, tea, red wine or tobacco.

Dental Root Canal

 

Root Canals

Root canals are the tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward until they reach the tip of the root.

Dental Toothache

 

Toothaches

Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other material. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused by a piece of debris or debris lodged between the teeth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because aspirin can actually burn harm your tissue.

Dental XRays

 

Dental Emergencies

Our goal is to help you minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we develop a custom treatment plan for you to help to offset the possibility of unforeseen pain or tooth breakage.

Tooth Extractions

 

Tooth Extractions

A dental extraction is the procedure to remove a tooth from the mouth. The dental extraction is most commonly required if one of the teeth is damaged beyond practical repair.

Dentures

 

Removable Dentures

Removable partial or full dentures may be necessary either as a permanent or temporary solution to replace missing teeth.

Dental Bite Splint

 

Bite Splints for Tooth Grinding

Bite splints are used for patients who have a tooth grinding or clenching habit that is causing extreme wear of the teeth or causing the patient jaw and muscle pain.

Sleep Apnea

 

Appliances for Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Appliances can be made for you to reduce or eliminate snoring or to treat sleep apnea.

Dental Nitrous oxide gas

 

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide gas is used in the office for patients who need to relax in order to have treatment. It is a safe and effective agent.

Periodontal Disease

 

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy

This treatment is to establish excellent gum health. The program has helped many patients avoid tooth loss and maintain healthier bone levels.
