The reconstruction of teeth can be very difficult depending on the severity of the dental disease a patient is experiencing. The patient’s needs may include, but is not limited to any of the following specific treatments:
Dentures or Partial Dentures:
Replacement of part or all of the missing dentition with removable prostheses.
A restoration covering the entire tooth to restore natural form and function. This may include a single tooth or several of the teeth in a patient’s dentition.
Inlays and Onlays:
Restorations that restore damaged or missing parts of the tooth. These restorations can either be made of tooth colored ceramics or gold.
This is a restorative technique to replace missing teeth by using the surrounding teeth as supporting structures. These restorations are similar to crowns in their fabrication and function.
By placing titanium supporting structures in the jaw bones, implants can be used as artificial roots for individual teeth, multiple teeth, full mouth reconstructions, and supporting mechanisms for dentures. Advances in implant dentistry and experience allows us to decide the best form of treatment for each individual patient. Implants do not have a guarantee of life time success, so proper treatment planning and individualized treatment is important in deciding between crown, bridge and/or implants.
To restore worn or decayed teeth with composites (tooth-colored fillings), amalgams (silver fillings) or gold restorations (gold fillings). There are a variety of reasons why and when each of the materials should or could be used. We also listen to the patient’s wants and concerns when considering the impacts of esthetics and longevity of the chosen restorations.
