Missing teeth and chronic toothaches can take the joy out of some of the simplest things in life. Eating your favorite foods and simply smiling during a conversation can become embarrassing and painful if your teeth or gums are in poor condition. Your Clinton dentists offer restorative dentistry to help alleviate some of your dental issues and repair and treat decaying teeth and missing teeth.
Restorative Dental Treatments
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that serves as the replacement root for your missing natural tooth. Dental implants can be placed in both the upper and lower jaws. Because they have biocompatible properties, dental implants naturally fuse with your jaw bone and become a solid anchor for the dental restorations we will eventually place on top of the metal post.
Implants look and function just like your natural teeth, and won’t slip or click like removable dentures. They can make it easier to smile with confidence and eat the foods you love again. If you’re missing teeth or struggling with loose, ill-fitting dentures, we can help!
If you have a damaged tooth that is infected or is causing you pain, you may benefit from root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is a highly successful, long-lasting restorative treatment. If you decide to pair your root canal with a natural-looking crown or fixed bridge, no one will never be able to notice the difference in your natural-looking smile! Although root canal therapy has a reputation for being painful, many patients have told us that the toothache is actually more painful and disruptive than the treatment.
We look forward to meeting you!
Do you wish your teeth were a bit whiter or a bit more attractive? Our doctors offer cosmetic dental treatments that can reshape your teeth, close gaps between your teeth, and brighten up your smile. Best of all, our cosmetic treatments help you achieve the smile of your dreams quickly!
Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Veneers are thin, durable ceramic sheets that are bonded to the front side of your teeth to permanently fix any chips, stains, or unsightly gaps. Veneers can change the color, shape, and even the size of your teeth to create a brighter, more attractive, and uniform smile.
As we age, our smiles naturally fade and become stained by the foods and drinks we consume. Coffee, wine, smoking, and other foods have the ability to leave our smile looking dull and yellow. If you want to turn your smile into a beautifully white one, check out our professional teeth whitening trays and gel!
Our convenient take-home teeth whitening kits can help you achieve professional results in the comfort of your own home. Each kit includes a set of custom-made trays and a supply of professional-strength whitening gel. You’ll have noticeably whiter teeth in as few as two weeks, and all it takes is 15 minutes a day!
We use ColorMatch Dental Shade to help us match veneers and fillings to your unique natural tooth color. This system uses three color references and performs shade and value analysis to adjust and determine the perfect shade for you. We work closely with our lab to make sure your restorations look beautiful and natural.
We look forward to treating you at our Clinton dental office!
Periodontal (Gum) Care
According to the American Academy of Periodontology, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults over age 35. If your gums ache, feel tender, look red and swollen, or bleed every time you floss, you could be at risk for gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can cause an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. It’s important to keep up with your 6-month dental checkups and cleanings to ensure a healthy smile.
Gum disease used to always require surgery, and while surgery is sometimes still the best option, your Clinton dentists can now treat many cases with less invasive techniques such as local antibiotics, deep cleanings, and medicated rinses.
Has your dentist in Clinton informed you that you have or are at risk of developing gum disease? Arestin®, an antibiotic powder that can stop the infection right where it starts, might be the perfect solution for you! After your deep cleaning, we will simply apply Arestin to the small space between your tooth and gum tissue (known as the “perio-pocket”). Arestin stays in place for up to three weeks and can clean up your gum infection to a level that can be managed with routine dental cleanings.
