We use dental implants to replace missing teeth and restore the function of your teeth. They offer the best solution for patients with tooth loss. An implant restoration has three parts: a titanium implant fixture, an abutment, and a dental restoration.
The implant fixture is placed in the jaw bone where it will fuse to the bone. This creates a sturdy base to hold the false teeth in place. It also replaces the missing teeth roots to stimulate the bone and prevent bone loss in the jaw. The abutment is a small piece that connects the implant to the dental restoration. The dental restoration is the false teeth. It will be a dental bridge, denture, or dental crown depending on how many teeth you are missing. To learn more about the dental implant process, see Dental Implants.
Dental crowns are custom caps that completely encase a tooth that is decayed, damaged, or weakened. A dental crown will restore a tooth to its original strength, shape, size, and appearance. It will also strengthen the tooth and protect it from further harm.
This is a popular treatment that we use to for many reasons. Dr. Haddad may recommend a dental crown to protect a weak tooth after a root canal, to support a bridge, or to strengthen a tooth with severe decay. It will resemble a natural tooth and help ensure long-term durability and functionality while improving the patient’s oral health and confidence. To learn more about the dental crown process, see Dental Crowns.
A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration that we may use to replace one or more missing teeth. It will bridge the gap between adjacent remaining, natural teeth or dental implants. A bridge is made up of one or more artificial teeth, known as pontics, which are held in place by dental crowns or abutments. We offer several types of dental bridges to accommodate our patient’s needs.
A dental bridge will help restore the functionality of your missing teeth. You will be able to chew better, speak normally, maintain proper tooth alignment, and your facial structure will remain intact. To learn more about the different types of bridges we offer, see Dental Bridge.
A denture is a dental prosthesis designed to replace several missing on an arch or an entire arch of teeth. They also replace some of the surrounding tissues. Complete dentures will rest on the gums and rely on suction to remain in place. Sometimes, denture adhesive is needed to secure the appliance. Partial dentures replace several missing teeth when there are some natural, healthy teeth remaining. It will have clasps that will clip onto the remaining teeth to hold it in place.
Dentures will help improve chewing and speaking abilities, support facial muscles to prevent sagging, and restore smiles. While they take some time to adjust to, modern dentures are more comfortable and natural-looking than ever before. Regular dental check-ups are crucial for denture wearers, ensuring proper fit, function, and oral health. To learn more about the types of dentures we offer, see Dentures and Partials.
Orthodontic treatment does more than create pretty, straight smiles. They restore oral health by correctly misaligned teeth and jaw issues. Crooked teeth are more than a cosmetic problem. Patients with crooked teeth will have difficultly cleaning their teeth increasing their risk of cavities and gum disease. Orthodontic treatments like braces or clear aligners will properly enhance your oral hygiene and reducing the likelihood of decay and gum problems.
Also, properly aligned teeth will improve your bite function. This can reduce the amount of wear and tear on your teeth and minimize jaw pain. Finally, simply attaining a straight smile will enhance your confidence. This will help you maintain your oral hygiene, promoting better oral health. To learn more about the orthodontic treatments we offer, see Orthodontics.
If you suffer from TMJ, we offer TMJ treatment that will restore your oral health. This condition can cause jaw pain and can lead to severe tooth damage. A TMJ disorder is often related to teeth grinding. Oral appliance therapy will help alleviate the strain, discomfort, and pain this can cause. If you do have damage to your teeth, we can also correct that damage with various restorative dentistry treatments. If your TMJ disorder is caused by misalignment, we may recommend orthodontics or restorative treatments to restore balance. To learn more about the treatments we offer for a TMJ disorder, see TMJ Treatment.
If you have gum disease, you must seek dental treatment as soon as possible. This is a progressive disease that will threaten your oral health. Treatments such as scaling and root planing can reduce inflammation and prevent the progression of periodontal disease. Without treatment, you risk damage to the underlying bone including bone loss, tooth loss, and receding gums. Untreated gum disease will place you at a higher risk for certain system diseases such as heart disease and stroke. Our gum disease treatments can eliminate bad breath, enhance the appearance of the gums, and reduces the risk of systemic health problems associated with untreated periodontal issues, ensuring a healthier, more vibrant smile and overall well-being. To learn more about our gum disease treatments, see Periodontal Therapy.
