Dental Restoration and Rehabilitation
Tooth loss happens for many reasons. In some cases, either as the result of poor dental hygiene or because of an accident. In any situation, eating without teeth is not fun. In the past, dentures was just about the only option for those dealing with missing teeth. Today, advancement in cosmetic and restorative dentistry allows us to perform dental implants and veneer overlays that look and function just like real teeth. No matter the cause, eating with broken, painful or lost teeth is not enjoyable. Modern dental procedures include tooth-colored fillings, crowns (caps), bridges, dentures, and implants. A complete dental makeover is possible to repair years of damage and discomfort. At Gentle Family Dentistry we perform all restorative and rehabilitative services in a cost-effective and painless fashion.
One of the most exciting treatment modalities is the placement of dental implants. These are basically titanium screws that allow tooth placement where teeth have not been able to be placed before. At Gentle Family Dentistry we use a variety of minimally invasive and cost-effective approaches to the treatment of dental implants. Implants can be used to restore every situation from a single missing tooth to a complete arch of missing teeth. At Gentle family dentistry, you receive a team approach from a periodontal surgeon and a prosthodontist to restore your implant restoration in order to get a result that is as close as possible in function and appearance to your own natural dentition. We offer a variety of implant systems, treatments and restorative options to return you to complete dental health and replace the teeth you have lost in the most natural fashion.
