Dental Bridges: A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth by fixing a crown onto the teeth next to the gap. The bridge is fixed to the crown and your “fake tooth” will rest in the gap left by your missing tooth. The result is a natural look and feel that you can rely on for years to come!
Crowns: A crown has many uses for the dentist. It is essentially a “fake tooth” that can be used as a cap for a bridge or attached to a dental implant, and used whenever your natural teeth need restoration. Our crowns are meticulously crafted to fit the shape and size of the rest of your teeth.
Dentures: Materials and processes for the fabrication of dentures have improved over the years, and dentures are now comfortable and very reliable. They will give you back the functionality of your smile if you are missing many teeth due to decay or trauma. Dentures also fill out your facial aesthetics to give your face a full and healthy look.
Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy): Sometimes the root of your tooth can become infected and cause lots of pain. Instead of extracting the tooth, we can retain the healthy structure of your tooth with a root canal. To accomplish a root canal, we will drill down through your tooth and remove the infected area and bacteria. Then we will fill in the hole to strengthen your tooth and prevent infection from reoccurring. Don’t worry; we’ll provide you with sedation to keep you comfortable while we work!
Extractions: If you are in need of a tooth extraction, we will perform it with precision and care. Whether you need your wisdom teeth extracted, have severe tooth decay, or need to prep for dentures, we’ll make sure you are comfortable and fully anesthetized for the procedure. Dr. Marshall can even perform the extraction the same day you come in because of his attention to detail and precision.
Fillings: Fillings are used to restore the shape, look, and functionality of your teeth. They can restore chipped or broken teeth and fill in the area left after the removal of cavities. Our fillings are made of a tooth colored composite material that will blend right in with your existing teeth. Your smile will look completely natural!
Dental Implants: Dental implants are an extremely effective and permanent method for replacing missing teeth. By placing a small bio-compatible post into your jaw, it acts as the root for your new “fake tooth.” Dental implants will fuse with your jaw and became extremely hard and sturdy. If taken care of properly with standard dental hygiene, your dental implant can last a lifetime!
Oral Surgery: If you need oral surgery for wisdom teeth or other procedures, we are equipped to handle your needs with your comfort in mind. Oral surgery sounds painful, but we assure you that your will be properly anesthetized for a pain free procedure. We also offer calming sedation options to keep those nerves at bay.
