Restorative Care

Bridges

Bridges are fixed (non-removable) appliances and are an excellent way to replace missing teeth.

Crowns

Crowns restore cracked or decayed teeth. A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size.

Dentures

Complete 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.

Dental Implants

Implants are metal devices designed to replace missing teeth. The devices are usually made out of titanium and are surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing. Unlike a dental bridge, an implant is permanent.

Fillings

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.

Root Canals

A "root canal," or endodontic therapy, is a procedure available to save a tooth that is infected and would otherwise require extraction. There are many reasons that teeth can become infected, including: cavities, previous large fillings, crowns, cracks, trauma and extreme wear.

Tooth Extractions

A tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone.

TMJ Therapy

When your TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is misaligned, you may experience headaches, extreme pain in the jaw, and ear or sinus infections.
