Crowns and Bridges:
Crowns are made from precious metal and/or porcelain. Crowns are molded to fit over damaged teeth or teeth with large restorations. Crowns cover the entire surface of the tooth, protecting and strengthening the natural tooth. The crown is perfectly matched to adjacent teeth, enhancing the natural beauty of your smile. A bridge is used to fill in a gap from a missing tooth by using the adjacent teeth.
Although our practice philosophy is to save teeth, there are instances when a tooth is unable to be saved due to such factors as extensive fracture, gum disease, or other reasons. We offer prompt emergency treatment, most extractions done in office, more difficult extractions are referred to an oral surgeon.

Root Canal Therapy:
A badly infected tooth or a tooth with significant decay can sometimes be salvaged through a procedure called root canal therapy or endodontics. Root canal treatment consists of the removal of infected or irritated nerve tissue in the root of the tooth and then filling the space. A root canal relieves pain and prepares the tooth for the final restoration for natural tooth function.
Gum Disease and Prevention:
Periodontal Disease or Gum Disease is an infection of the gums caused by a buildup of tartar and plaque caused by bacteria in the mouth. Untreated, the supportive structures of the teeth become damaged which can lead to the loss of teeth and other health concerns.
Gum disease is a very common disease among adults, and sometimes can also occur in adolescents. Professional or different types of cleaning may be used in the treatment of gum disease. It is extremely important to have regular screenings by a dentist or hygienist to prevent gum disease from forming. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
Clenching and grinding teeth is a neuromuscular disease which may cause fractures, wear, and loose teeth. A properly made biteguard protects teeth and helps to relax the facial muscles. Ask our office for a free consultation for the different types of mouth guards.
