Fillings are a way to restore teeth damaged by decay back to normal function and shape. First we remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and then fill the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cover that is placed over a weakened or damaged tooth to restore its natural appearance and prevent further deterioration. A bridge is an artificial tooth connected to a set of crowns used to fill a gap created by one or more missing teeth.
When an unhealthy tooth is removed, both the crown and the root are lost. A dental implant is placed in the jawbone so that it can fuse with your natural bone and become a strong and sturdy foundation for your new crown.
People typically need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth. During a root canal, we carefully remove the pulp inside the tooth, then clean, disinfect and shape the root canal, and place a filling, sealing the space.
Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile and your confidence. If you’ve lost some or all of your teeth, replacing missing teeth can benefit your appearance and your health. Dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth.
A broken denture can cause immense physical pain as well as mental distress. Dentures may become damaged in a variety of ways, including impact, biting a hard object, natural wear and tear, and more. When you have a damaged denture, you need immediate care to prevent further damage.
