You can drastically reduce the risk of dental disease simply by brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, eating a balanced diet, and visiting your dentist regularly.
If you are missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing, your speech, and possibly the appearance of the way your teeth fit together. A bridge replaces the missing tooth and/or teeth with artificial teeth, literally “bridging” the gap. Bridges can be removable or fixed in the mouth, looking and feeling almost completely normal. Implant Dentistry Is another refined way to replace the missing tooth. Implants are permanent, appearing to be the most real like and dependable. An in depth exam by the dentist will determine if you are a candidate for implants. Remember that the success of all dental procedures is a good foundation in which to restore the teeth, so it’s very important to keep remaining teeth healthy and strong!

Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum colored plastic type bases. Depending on your needs, your dentist will design a partial for your specific needs to replace the missing teeth. A partial may have a metal frame and clasps that connect to your existing teeth, or they may have other connectors that are more natural looking. In some cases, a partial is made to attach to your natural teeth with devices called precision attachments. Our Doctors will help you make choices to best fit your lifestyle and needs.
Full dentures are removable appliances that can replace your missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you have lost all your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay, or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit not only your appearance but your health as well. This is because dentures make it easier to speak and eat… things people often take for granted. When you lose your teeth, your facial muscles will begin to sag, making you look older. Dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. They can be closely fitted and made to resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance is as close to natural as possible. Dentures will improve the look of your smile. Come see us today and get on your way to a happier, healthier smile!!!!
Root Canal treatment is necessary when the pulp (the soft tissue inside your teeth containing blood vessels and nerves) becomes inflamed and/or infected. Causes could be a deep cavity, a cracked or broken tooth, or even injury to the tooth. During a root canal, the doctor removes the diseased pulp and seals it with special medicine. If the infected pulp is not removed, pain, swelling and even the eventual the loss of the tooth can result. . Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three office visits. Best of all…… You can save your tooth and your smile!!!
