Complete Dental Care in One Place
Our dental care center is one of the few practices in the state where patients can have all of their dental needs from treatment planning and preventive services, X-Rays, surgical and restorative procedures, root canals, implants, sleep disorder appliances, braces, periodontal (gum) procedures as well as the fabrication of most restorations and the repair of partials and dentures at our on-site dental lab.
If your smile is in need of a makeover, crowns can provide predictable results. Crowns can give an unattractive tooth back its beautiful shape and color. For smaller or worn down teeth, a crown can restore the natural size of the old tooth. A crown can replace either part of or the tooth's entire structure. For procedures requiring only the areas visible from the outside, a veneer may be an alternative option.
This type of alternative replaces teeth that are missing. It is made of metal with hooks that grab teeth for support.
Furthermore on the upper there is a large piece of metal that goes across the roof of the mouth which can interfere with taste sensation and/or have food collected under it.
The partial plate must be taken in and out each day to be cleaned.
Full Arch Dentures
At times, it is necessary for all teeth to be removed due to extensive periodontal disease and/or due to decay. An alternative for the replacement of all the teeth is a complete upper and/or lower denture. These dentures require support from your gum pad and many times require the use of dental adhesive. Throughout life, the dentures require constant adjustment and refitting and can cause the jaw bone to melt away making the dentures loose and once again requiring continuous adjustment.
