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. Dentists secure fixed dental bridges with adjacent real 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.
Do you have a broken tooth? Do you need to protect a weak worn down tooth? Dental Crowns are a great way to protect your teeth from further damage. Our dentist can restore the shape of a broken or cracked tooth with a dental crown. Our dental crown treatment is custom to your needs so that you get the best restoration possible.
Are you missing one or more teeth? Have you lost a permanent tooth due to decay or trauma? Dental implants are artificial roots, teeth, or other structures that an oral surgeon surgically places in the mouth to replace missing natural teeth. Dentists use them to replace teeth, support dental prostheses such as dentures and partials, or to provide anchorage for orthodontic appliances.
The implant can be a single unit of an artificial tooth (a crown) or multiple units (bridges). We can also use dental implants when there is no remaining natural tooth structure.
Dentures and Partials
Dentures and partials are a dental prosthesis that replaces missing teeth. They can be acrylic and metal, or porcelain. There are many different types of dental prosthesis, and dentures and partials are two of the most common.
Dentures are when a dentist replaces a full set of teeth with an appliance that fits over the upper or lower jaw. Dentists use partials to replace missing teeth in a similar manner to dentures, only they cover fewer teeth and only for the lower jaw. This treatment option can also prevent shifting and overcrowding teeth.
Gum disease has many stages. Bleeding gums is usually the first sign of this degenerative disease. From gingivitis to advanced periodontitis, Dr. Reece can prevent further damage to your mouth with conservative treatments for gum disease remediation.
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 help alleviate TMJ pain.
