Restorative Dentistry We Offer
A filling is a restorative dentistry service that is a way of replacing or restoring part of your tooth lost to injury or decay. The most common type of filling used in our office is a resin composite that provides a good match to your natural tooth color.
A root canal may be necessary to save a tooth that has become abscessed (infected) from decay or has suffered trauma resulting in the nerve being exposed. In some cases, the tooth is slowly dying due to age or a past trauma. In most cases a root canal is an uncomplicated procedure with little or no discomfort.
The dentist can’t do anything to change yesterday, but we can help you today and in the future, to achieve a pain-free, healthy, and beautiful smile. We applaud you for taking a step toward reclaiming a strong and healthy smile!
A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. With this type of restorative dentistry, one or more neighboring teeth may be crowned and used to anchor the replacement.
Tooth replacement helps avoid shifting of surrounding teeth into gaps. If left untreated, structural changes to your mouth and jaw may occur. This can cause you difficulty with eating, speech, and other functions.
Sometimes restoring a tooth isn’t possible. Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) is a compound that helps halt tooth decay in patients who are unable to accept dental treatment. SDF is applied quickly and painlessly without the use of anesthetic or drills.
Dentures are replacement teeth. Depending on your needs and your health, we offer both traditional and implant-supported dentures. All of our dentures are custom-made to fit your unique needs.
Traditional dentures are removable; these can be either a whole set of teeth or a partial one. An adhesive is used to attach the dentures to your gums. These adhesives come in a variety of options: cream, powder, liquid, or strips.
Whatever adhesive you use, we recommend that you choose one that has been evaluated by the American Dental Association (ADA) to protect your health as well as the dentures.
Over time, teeth begin to weaken. This leaves them more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks or discoloration. A dental crown can renew the appearance and function of a tooth. Also, dental crowns are often used in conjunction with root canal therapy, dental implants, or as an anchor for a bridge.
At Great Northern Dental, we know that dental procedures can be inconvenient and time-consuming for many patients. Fortunately, advancements in dental technology have allowed us to offer same-day crowns as an alternative to traditional crowns.
