Restorative | Reconstructive Dentistry Services
Sometimes even our best attempts to keep our teeth and gums healthy result in the loss of teeth or tooth structure. Fillings, Extractions, and other general dentistry procedures may be necessary to maintain overall dental health.
Dental Crowns, Bridges, Root Canals, Implants, Dentures
- Crowns and Bridges
- We make gold, porcelain to gold and all porcelain crowns and bridges using the latest materials. The new Zirconium substrate material for metal free crowns and bridges provides strength approaching that of metal and is certainly more esthetic.
- A partial removable denture, as the name implies, replaces a few missing teeth and is supported by the remaining teeth. These are done when there are too few teeth for a fixed, non-removable bridge or implant replacement cannot be done. Full dentures replace all the teeth in the upper or lower arches. Fabrication of a functional, natural looking, esthetic denture requires time and a number of appointments. Maximum retention and stability can be obtained by utilizing dental implants.
- Root Canals
- Root canal treatment involves cleaning out the diseased or injured pulp tissue of the tooth and replacing it with a material that seals the entire inside of the tooth from the end of the root to the top of the tooth. Dr Box does most of the endodontic (root canal) treatment required by his patients. Most root canal procedures are accomplished in a single visit utilizing the latest instrumentation and techniques available and typically are no more eventful than any other restorative treatment.
- Dental Implants
- Dr Box places many of the dental implants his patients need. Sometimes a coordinated interdisciplinary team approach is necessary and either a Periodontist or Oral Surgeon may place the implants. Replacement of individual or multiple teeth can now be done predictably with titanium implants which replace the missing root. The crown or bridge is then constructed to be attached to the implants. Implants also provide support and retention for removable full or partial dentures.
