Bridges are fixed (non-removable) appliances and are an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens the tooth structure, giving the tooth a longer life than it would have if restored by fillings or other types of restorations.
Full Dentures are removable prostheses of white plastic teeth in a pink gum-colored plastic base that rests on the remaining gum ridge once all of the teeth in the arch have been removed. A partial denture is a removable appliance held in place by gripping the remaining healthy teeth, usually with metal clasps or wires.
Fillings are used to restore areas of your tooth affected by decay. Dentists use both amalgam (silver) and composite (tooth-colored) materials to "fill in" the surface of the tooth after all decay has been removed.
A dental implant is a titanium post designed to replace missing teeth. The post is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing, and provides a more permanent solution.
A tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems.
When your TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is misaligned, you may experience headaches, extreme pain in the jaw, and ear or sinus infections.
Non-surgical Root Canal treatments are minimally invasive, this procedure allows us to perform the necessary endodontic treatment to allow you to resume normal function.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth that typically come into a patient's mouth. Sometimes they are problematic and other times they are just fine. The typical age for the development of these teeth is between 17 and 25 years of age, which is why they have been given the name "wisdom teeth," as you receive them during your wiser years.
