Bonding - Chipped or broken teeth can be rebuilt by applying and shaping a tooth-colored material that makes teeth look natural.
Preventive Sealants - Dental sealants act as a barrier, protecting the teeth against decay-causing bacteria. Sealants are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (premolars and molars) where decay occurs most often.
Tooth-colored Fillings - Composites or white fillings are materials designed to match the color of your teeth. They're a perfect choice when the cavity is in a visible area, such as on the front teeth or at the gum line. Although composites may be preferred for cosmetic reasons, if a cavity is too large, or is in an area where much chewing occurs, you may need a different filling material.
Periodontal Treatment (for Gum Disease) – Periodontal (gum) disease is the major cause of tooth loss in adults. Mainly caused by plaque, it is usually painless. Regular dental visits are essential to timely diagnosis and treatment. During each routine checkup we will examine you for periodontal disease by looking for breakdown in the gum tissue attachment or pockets between your gums and teeth. Treatment will depend upon the type and severity of gum disease. Treatment options include: scaling, oral irrigation, root planing, and periodontal surgery.
Root Canal (Endodontic Treatment) - If your tooth's inner nerve chamber becomes infected by decay, root canal treatment is often the only way to save your tooth. The diseased or injured tissue inside the tooth is removed, after which the remaining space is cleaned, shaped, and filled. The materials used to fill your root canal will probably last a lifetime, but the filling or crown may need to be replaced.
Crowns & Bridges - When a tooth is fractured, has a large, old filling, or is severely damaged by decay, the placement of a crown (or cap) may be recommended. Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your smile. When tooth loss occurs, a bridge may be needed. A bridge is one or more replacement teeth anchored by one or more crowns on each side.
Dentures & Partials - If you’ve lost some or all of your natural teeth, partial or full dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases. Full dentures are of two types: an immediate denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed; a conventional full denture is made and placed in a patient’s mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed which may take several months.
Valplast® “Metal-free” Partials - Flexible, attractive partial dentures with metal-free clasping. Made from a special plastic material, these partials provide the translucency of natural tissue and resist chemical breakdown, providing a long-lasting, high-strength partial. Because stress is more naturally distributed in the mouth with Valplast partials, the remaining teeth stay healthier longer than with conventional partials.
