A dental bridge is a restoration constructed from prosthetic teeth supported by an anchor on either side of a missing tooth gap. Natural adjacent teeth or dental implants can be used to support the bridge. Receiving this restoration can prevent shifting and overcrowded teeth, prevent facial sagging, and create an even bite. Dental bridges secured by implants offer a more permanent solution.
A dental crown can be used to cover a dental implant, damaged teeth, or tooth discoloration. They are crafted from durable ceramic that blends in with natural teeth. In addition, they may also be color-matched to any desired shade. Dental crowns prevent further damage for a more even bite.
Dentures & Partials
Full and partial dentures are utilized to replace multiple missing teeth or whole rows of lost teeth. Dentures help patients improve the function of their bite. Implant-supported dentures are beneficial to support bone retention and preventing slippage. Dental implants provide a stable bite that functions just like natural teeth.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Gum disease, also known as periodontitis, is a serious disease that can cause patients to lose their teeth. Treatments for this disease may include scaling and root planing as well as bone and gum grafting. These treatments are used to remove the infection from beneath the gums. They can also reattach teeth to the gums if they are receding from severe periodontitis.

Do you suffer from frequent headaches? Does your jaw pop or click when you chew? You may have a temporomandibular joint disorder. TMJ disorders are caused by injury to the joints that connect the skull and jawbone together. Patients with misaligned teeth are more prone to developing TMJ, which is why Invisalign is a common treatment for TMJ patients. Straightening teeth can lessen symptoms such as teeth grinding, jaw popping, and facial pain. Nightguards benefit patients who clench and grind their teeth unconsciously at night. These oral appliances protect the teeth and assuage tooth and jaw pain.
