Cavities are one of the leading oral health problems among people of all ages. In the past, they would be treated using a metal amalgam filling that could cause side-effects like dental sensitivity and tooth and gum discoloration. Today, we use biocompatible composite resin to restore the structure eroded by the decay and protect the inner chamber from harmful oral bacteria.
For damaged and missing teeth, we can craft customized bridges and crowns. Crowns are cap-like structures that are made to fit over the biting surface of teeth to restore their strength and structure. Bridges use crowns to hold free-standing replacement teeth in place. So, they can be utilized together or separately, depending on what oral issue you face.
Patients who are missing many or all of their teeth along an arch can restore their smiles using full or partial dentures, which are tried-and-true prosthetics. Full dentures are designed to fit over the gums and adhere to the mouth using natural suction, while partial dentures fit like a puzzle piece between your existing teeth. For added stability and strength, you can also have them secured to your mouth using dental implants.
