When all of your natural teeth are removed and replaced with dentures, this is known as “complete dentures” There are two types of complete dentures: immediate and conventional. Immediate dentures are just what they sound like. You’ll get these to wear after your extractions and can wear them for a couple of months while you wait for your customized conventional dentures.
Cracked Tooth Repair
Crowns & Bridges
Fillings are one of the most common dental procedures performed. They are used to treat cavities. Your dentist removes decayed portions of your teeth, most often using a dental drill, and then “fills” that area with a solid material. Composite fillings are usually more expensive than silver amalgam fillings because they are more durable and can closely match your natural tooth color. Likewise, ceramic fillings, which are made of porcelain, are also very durable and also closely match your natural tooth color.
Fillings also can be used to repair cracked or broken teeth.
Exams & X-rays
No one likes to lose an adult tooth, but sometimes it is necessary. Extractions — the removal of one or more teeth — can be used to reduce crowding or in preparation for dentures. It is also common to extract a tooth that is badly infected or if a tooth is badly damaged and cannot be repaired using a root canal, filling, or a crown.
Dentures, whether full or partial, take a while to make, and it’s almost impossible to fit you for dentures without first extracting your teeth. Instead of leaving you with no teeth for a couple of months while you wait for your permanent dentures to be made, “immediate” dentures provide a temporary solution. You’ll receive your immediate dentures on the same day of your extraction.
These are crowns that are used with patients who are missing a tooth. An implant-supported crown replaces the entire tooth, from the root to the crown. The crown is placed onto a dental implant that is surgically embedded in the jawbone. Implant-supported crowns provide a very strong foundation for your crown.
Mouth guards don’t just keep your teeth protected during things like sporting events, they also can serve a variety of dental purposes. If you frequently grind or clench your teeth while sleeping, a mouthguard may be very helpful in stopping repetitive damage to your teeth. They can also help to reduce snoring and even relieve obstructive sleep apnea.
Like a complete denture, partial dentures replace your natural teeth. But unlike with a complete denture, a partial denture doesn’t require all of your teeth to be extracted. This can be particularly helpful for patients who want to keep as many of their natural teeth as possible. Partial dentures may have a metal frame and clasps that connect to your natural teeth, or they may have other types of connections that are more natural-looking.
Repair of Chipped/Broken Teeth
Like cracked teeth, chipped or otherwise broken teeth can be repaired using several different methods, including fillings, crowns, and in extreme cases, a root canal or extraction.
Root Canal Treatment
Scaling & Root Planing
Scaling & Root Planing, often called a “deep cleaning” is when there are deep pockets around your teeth, these pockets can become filled with bacteria and other contaminants/food. The bone that is around your teeth wants to stay healthy and strong, so it recedes away from the bacteria/contaminants.
When you have a “deep cleaning” completed, your dental hygienist will take specialized instruments and clean below the gumline, this removes any harmful items from those deep pockets and slows bone recession. After your Scaling & Root Planing you will return every 3-4 months for periodontal maintenance where we can make sure that we remove any new deposits and keep your bone at a strong level.
Annual or semi-annual teeth cleanings are an important part of your overall dental care. It removes plaque and tartar buildup and keeps your teeth and gums healthier than they would be without regular deep cleaning.
