Your teeth are essential for your oral health. If you have decayed, damaged, or missing teeth, you may have trouble eating the food that you want. Instead, you might find that you are limited to soft, mushy foods and/or soup. As much as we like mashed potatoes, it’s not the only thing you need to stay healthy.
Today is the day to take action to rebuild your smile. Today is the day to schedule an appointment for restorative dentistry at McNulty & Dancausse General Dentistry.
Fix A Single Tooth
You have a large cavity, a broken tooth, or a cracked tooth, a dental crown could repair it. Crowns also are effective for capping a tooth after a root canal procedure.
Modern crowns are made with materials that are durable and look incredibly lifelike. With a crown, you can feel confident about biting into the food on your plate or about posing for a picture for your social media.
Replace A Tooth or Teeth
To replace missing teeth, a dental bridge can fill that gap in your smile. Traditional bridges are made by fusing crowns together. As a result, your bridge (like you crowns) looks natural, is strong, and can last for several years.
Bridges aren’t the only way to replace a lost tooth, however. With the innovation of dental implants, you can recreate a complete tooth. The implant replaces the root of the missing tooth and is placed directly in your jawbone. Then, a crown can be affixed to the implant to give you a complete smile again.
Replace A Row of Teeth
Modern dentures are better than ever. While traditional dentures are still an option, you can make the more like natural teeth by getting implant-secured dentures. With implants, you won’t need to mess with denture adhesives. You can trust that your new teeth won’t slide around, and you can general more force in each bite and chew.
With either implant-supported or implant-retained dentures, you can feel like you have a full set of healthy teeth.
Reduce Your Anxiety About Restorative Dental Care
Many people have dental anxiety, and many people who are OK with routine care become anxious about restorative services. This fear can keep people from getting services they need … until they have a dental emergency. We can and do provide emergency dental care, but we would rather help you avoid that if at all possible.
To ease your anxious feelings, we first welcome you to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors. Getting to know us and our team can make a difference in how you feel about your treatment.
We want you to be as comfortable as you can be during your visit. We offer comfort options to help you relax. You also can take advantage of inhaled sedation (laughing gas). This has proven to be effective at calming nerves and blocking pain. Both of these can make it much easier to do what you need done to repair and restore your smile.
