Implants are structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures. Read More...
Complete dentures can also be attached to dental implants, thus, anchoring the denture to the implant. This allows patients to chew with much greater comfort and denture stability. Read More...
Crowns are restorations, usually made of a precious metals, porcelain or both, that are placed on a tooth to restore it's structure and prolong the longevity of the tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a removal of a large old restoration, the fracture of the tooth and/or after a 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 used to restore the tooth to proper form and function. Read More...
Bridges are natural-looking dental restorations that can replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges blend into the natural dentition. They also restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth. Read More...
Complete and Partial Dentures
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It is made of acrylic resin, sometimes in combination with various metals. Read More...
People choose esthetic dental procedures for various reasons—to repair a defect such as a malformed/misshapen teeth, spaces between the teeth, injuries (fractured teeth), or just improve their overall appearance. Whatever the reason, the ultimate goal is to restore a beautiful smile. Read More...
Maxillofacial prostheses are necessary to restore teeth and jaw structures that are lost to either trauma (auto accidents, etc.) or surgery needed to remove certain types of oral cancer. These prostheses can be anchored to the natural teeth or to dental implants for stability. They are used to obturate (close or fill) any openings between the oral and nasal cavity. If such openings exist, a patient will have severe difficulties with speech, eating and swallowing. Read More...
Simple toothaches can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the teeth and can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris. Toothaches can also be caused by dental decay or gum disease that has progressed to cause an infection and pain. Toothaches should be evaluated and treated immediately. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. Read More...
