Sometimes a tooth is damaged to such an extent that a filling is not sufficient. In this case, we use a restoration called a crown which is a covering or “cap” for a tooth. Similarly, crowns are also used to secure a bridge which is a series of three or more teeth that are attached to each other as one unit.
Dentures and Partial Dentures
With our various restorative options available, dentures are often suggested as a last resort or at the request of a patient. We offer two forms of dentures, either a full or partial, based on the health and stability of a patient’s natural teeth.
The temporomandibular joints or TMJ can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles which control jaw movement. We offer a range of solutions and treatments to provide relief to patients suffering from TMJ.
Unlike most dentures, an “all-on-four” is a denture that is permanently attached to a patient’s mouth by mounting the denture onto a series of implants that are surgically placed into the jaw bone. Securing an all-on-four can be a lengthy process due healing time needed after the implants are placed.
