Fillings

Plaque builds up in the pits and fissures of your teeth if good dental hygiene is not maintained, creating cavities. A cavity is a hole in your tooth’s enamel that has been burned into it by acid. A dental filling is a procedure that involves physically filling the holes left by a cavity to return your tooth to its previous function and strength. Fillings can strengthen and restore your teeth, preventing further decay.

 

Crowns

A dental crown is employed when a cavity has caused enough damage to a tooth that a filling will not be enough to restore it. We will file the rotten parts of the tooth away, and we will place an artificial tooth over the decayed tooth to act as a covering. The crown is a shell that protects your tooth and helps it heal while still letting your mouth operate normally. Crowns are custom-made to match your teeth’ anatomy and appear natural.

 

Bridges

When a tooth is lost, a bridge is a great way to replace it. A bridge comprises one prosthetic tooth that replaces the lost tooth and is held in place by crowns on the surrounding teeth. The bridge will prevent your jaw bone from deteriorating. This is a less intrusive method of tooth replacement. Because the bridge is specially designed to fit your tooth anatomy, no one will be able to tell you have an artificial tooth.

 

Implants

A dental implant is a more intrusive, time-consuming, and costly dental procedure, yet the results are long-lasting and highly desirable. An implant is a surgical treatment that involves the implantation of three separate pieces over six months. A metal post is implanted into the jawbone to serve as the new tooth’s root, and it eventually will hold a dental crown in place. Your artificial tooth will work like and look like a natural tooth. A dental implant can remain for years if properly cared for.

 

Root Canals

If the pulp inside our teeth becomes infected, a root canal is necessary to save the tooth. The dentist will drain the pulp and fill it with a dental resin to restore the tooth to its natural form. Root canals will make your tooth strong again, and you can return to speaking and chewing naturally. 

 

Periodontal Therapy

Taking care of your gums is just as important as taking care of your teeth. Your gums are delicate and can easily be damaged if not cared for properly. Your teeth may loosen and finally fall out if your gums become infected. Periodontal disease treatment is available at every stage of the illness. There are several techniques to treat this condition. You can help avoid gum disease through proper dental hygiene and visiting the dentist twice a year.
