Rebuild Your Teeth
Unfortunately, your teeth can become damaged in a number of ways. On the upside, we offer a number of solutions to repair and revive your smile at our dentist office. Here’s a quick breakdown of the things we can do for you:
• Tooth Fillings — You want to keep brushing, flossing, and getting professional cleanings and exams. This is partly to prevent cavities and partly to catch decay in the early stages. Our composite dental fillings can repair your tooth and give you a natural-looking smile, too.
• Dental Crowns & Bridges — If you have broken, cracked, or severely decayed tooth, a dental crown is a perfect solution to repair your tooth. If you are missing a tooth, crowns can be combined to create a dental bridge to fill the gap in your smile.
• Root Canals — Sometimes people don’t deal with small problems as soon as they should. Sometimes people aren’t away they have a problem until they feel the pain of a toothache. A root canal treatment can remove the cause of your tooth infection and repair your smile.
• Dentures — If you are missing several teeth, full or partial dentures can give you back your complete smile.
Strengthen Your Replacement Teeth
If you are missing teeth, we also hope you will take a minute to consider one more thing. Crowns, bridges, and dentures only replace the top half of your teeth. To get complete tooth replacements, you need to replace your roots as well. This is what dental implants are designed to do.
Modern implants act as artificial roots. As such, they anchor your replacement teeth to your jaw. This makes them more stable and secure. It also creates a direct connection between your jawbone and your crown, bridge, or dentures (depending on how many teeth you need to replace). This allows you to bite and chew with practically the same power as someone who has a full set of healthy teeth.
When you come to our office for restorative dentistry, we also make your comfort a top priority. Ask how our comfort and sedation options can make your visit to Edgewood Dental Care even easier for you.
