We are a mercury-free practice. However, many people still have silver/mercury fillings in their mouths from years past. These fillings are not particularly pleasing to the eye, and we know that by unavoidable design, silver/mercury fillings ultimately result in a weaker tooth structure. Porcelain inlays and Tooth Colored Restorations (onlays) create fillings that are not only beautiful (or unnoticeable) but also add strength to weakened teeth.
Root canal therapy or a root canal procedure can relieve the pain caused by diseased or injured pulp tissue in the center of the tooth. Many times, this tissue cannot repair itself and root canal therapy is required to save the tooth.
When restoration procedures such as root canal therapy, crowns, or fillings are not enough to save a tooth, it may need to be pulled, or extracted.
Tooth extraction procedures today are far less painful than ever before, thanks to powerful anesthetics and sedatives. In many cases, a patient who has tooth pulled experiences little or no discomfort, and only minor bleeding.
A full denture may be the best solution when complete extractions of your remaining teeth is unavoidable.
A removable partial denture is designed specifically to meet the needs of the patient and can replace one or more missing teeth.
Restorative or Dental implants are a great choice for replacing missing teeth because they so closely mimic your natural tooth structures. No other form of tooth replacement rests atop “tooth roots.” With dental implants, titanium posts are surgically placed into your jawbone, not only holding your replacement teeth in place but supporting your jaw health as well.
