Dental infection and injury are things we take great care to avoid, but unfortunately, they’re still common occurrences. We’re here to show you that your smile, oral health, and confidence can recover.
Sometimes, even if you maintain a solid oral hygiene routine, your enamel can fall prey to acid erosion. If erosion reaches your inner tooth (dentin), it can cause severe pain; left untreated, it can cause deeper infection or tooth loss.
If decay has left you with a cavity too large for a standard filling, an inlay or onlay might be just what your smile needs. Inlays and onlays can help you hold onto more of your healthy tooth structure.
If you’re experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity, it’s a good idea to have us examine your teeth to rule out caries (tooth decay). If we do spot decay, we can get started on treatment right away to save more of your healthy tooth structure.
For damage that’s taken more tooth structure than a filling, inlay, or onlay can repair, crowns could be the treatment you need. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps fabricated to fit your unique smile and feel as natural as the rest of your teeth.
If gum disease, extensive decay, or injury have claimed one or more of your teeth, you know the gap can cause physical and emotional pain. Dental bridges can help you regain your ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently.
Replacing missing teeth can restore your smile’s beauty, but even more importantly, it can prevent you from experiencing oral and overall health consequences. A better quality of life is within closer reach than you might think. Contact us today to learn about your options!
Losing just one permanent tooth can be traumatic, so we know that losing most or all of your teeth can cause be immensely painful emotionally and physically. We want you to know you’re not alone—in fact, 36 million Americans are living without any teeth.
