Dental Bridges: Are you missing one or more teeth? You may be a good candidate for dental bridges. This restorative treatment option restores multiple consecutive missing teeth and is secured to adjacent teeth or dental implants. Fixed dental bridges are secured with adjacent natural teeth. Implant-secured dental bridges are a stable option that lasts longer than removable options. This treatment can help prevent further tooth loss and are more permanent than other solutions.
Dental Crowns: Do you have a broken tooth? Maybe you need to protect a weak tooth that has been worn down. Dental crowns act as caps that cover and protect teeth. They are used to cover damaged, misshapen, or discolored teeth, as well as hold dental bridges in place or to cover dental implants. Made of sturdy porcelain ceramic material, dental crowns strengthen weak teeth and blend in with natural teeth. Dental crowns are custom-fit to each patient for personalized treatment.
Dental Implants: Are you missing one or more teeth? Are you looking for a more balanced smile? Replace the gaps in your smile with dental implants. Dental implants consist of a titanium post, abutment, and dental crown that are custom-fit to each patient. Dr. Reece will insert the titanium post which will then fuse to bone tissue over a healing period of three to six months. After this period, the abutment and custom dental crown will be attached to the post. This restorative solution not only improves the form and function of a patient’s bite but also provides them with a more balanced smile. Whether you need one or multiple dental implants, we will work with you each step of the way.
Dentures and Partials: Are you missing multiple teeth? Maybe you have an upper or lower arch of missing teeth. You can restore your smile with full or partial dentures. Dentures are a restorative treatment that provides a secure and stable bite for patients with multiple missing teeth. Prevent shifting and overcrowded teeth with this treatment option.
Periodontal Therapy: Periodontitis, or gum disease, affects millions of Americans each year. Swollen gums, also known as gingivitis, precede gum disease, so it is important to catch it in the early stages. There are multiple signs of periodontitis to look out for, including Swollen gums, bleeding gums, receding gums, loose teeth, bad breath, toothaches, or mouth sores.
TMJ Treatment: Do you suffer from frequent jaw or facial pain? You may have a temporomandibular joint disorder. TMJ disorders may cause symptoms such as difficulty chewing, lockjaw, earaches, muscle spasms, teeth grinding, or teeth clenching. Lifestyle changes, Invisalign, and oral appliances can be used to help alleviate TMJ pain.
