Implant to Replace a Missing Tooth

Dental Implants are inserted into bone to replace missing or un-restorable tooth roots. Implants can be used as the foundation to replace single or multiple missing teeth, or to anchor a removable restoration like a denture. An implant is conservative to neighboring teeth, leaving them undisturbed.

Bridge to Replace a Missing Tooth

A Bridge, also called a fixed partial denture, is literally a bridge of crowns. A bridge relies on the strength of the adjacent teeth to bear the load of the tooth or teeth that are missing. The neighboring teeth are prepared for crowns and the restoration is cement retained.

Periodontal Disease Treatment

Periodontal Disease is the progression of gingivitis. If left undisturbed, the bacteria that form plaque biofilms find shelter under hardened tarter or calculus deposits that form around teeth and gums. When your body's immune system tries to fight these bacteria, the result is destruction of soft tissue and bone around the teeth. The calculus and infected tissue need professional removal for your body to be able to fight back and heal properly again.

Single Tooth Crown

A Crown is a tooth-shaped hard hat the fits over the the entire tooth, protecting it from fracture. When teeth have had large cavities, and subsequently large fillings, they are not as strong as they were when they first erupted. Unlike bones, teeth don't get stronger, grow, or heal as we age. Most people continue to chew everyday and sometimes they break teeth. Crowns can help restore teeth that are at risk of fracture or that have already broken in many cases.

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal or Endodontic therapy is needed if a tooth is hurting or the nerve and blood supply to the tooth has been disrupted and the tooth is savable. Root canal treatment only takes the dead or dying nerve tissue out of the tooth, not the tooth itself. A small hole, like to do a filling, is made in the tooth, and special files are used to remove the dead or dying tissue which is the cause of the pain. The canal where the dying tissue was is then sealed so bacteria don't inhabit it.
