When a tooth is affected by tooth decay, it usually requires part of the tooth to be drilled and then filled with a dental filling. This restores the tooth and keeps the decay from spreading and requiring more invasive restorative options from becoming necessary. Edgewater Dental Arts offers tooth-colored fillings and gold fillings, among other options.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
If you have a tooth that has been weakened by tooth decay or damage, our team may recommend using a dental crown to restore and protect the tooth. Dental bridges are very similar but they can also be used to restore just one tooth or several teeth in a row. Dental crowns and bridges are designed to blend in seamlessly with natural teeth.
Dental implants are very sturdy dental restorations that can last a lifetime. The posts are made of titanium and they fuse with the jawbone, creating a stable foundation on top of which a natural-looking crown is placed. Our team also offers mini implants, which are less invasive, offer immediate results, and can be used to stabilize dentures.
Complete & Partial Dentures
Dentures are used to restore missing teeth for patients of all ages. Complete dentures are used to replace all of the teeth on an arch, or all of the teeth on the upper jaw or lower jaw, and partial dentures are used to replace a row of missing teeth. Dentures are always custom made to fit comfortably and look natural.
We always try to prevent dental extractions from becoming necessary due to decay or trauma, but sometimes it is the best restorative option. Tooth extractions are also commonly used when the teeth become too crowded, which is the reason why many wisdom teeth removal procedures are performed.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canals used to be painful procedures, but due to advancements in technology and dental sedation, root canal therapy is nothing to fear. When the pulp inside of a tooth becomes infected, it must be removed before the infection spreads. Then, the tooth is cleaned, sealed, and a dental restoration is placed on top for cosmetic and restorative purposes.
Gum disease is one of the most common diseases that affect humans, but once it develops into periodontitis, it must be treated using a custom treatment plan created by a dentist. Periodontal treatment usually involves scaling and root planing, which is when plaque and tartar are removed from the periodontal pockets and the roots of the teeth are smoothed out.
