When a tooth has a cavity, we remove the decay, and put a tooth colored filling to replace the missing portion of the tooth. Fillings are quick and easy. After a filling procedure, you might feel some sensitivity for a week or two, this is completely normal.
The way you bite and how it feels should be perfectly normal after a filling. Sometimes however it is confusing especially when that tooth is numb. If you feel something is off, you can’t seem to forget it and keep thinking about it, then it probably is, contact our office to correct the issue ASAP!
If the decay is too big, or if the tooth has a Root Canal, the dentist might recommend a crown “cap” instead of a filling.
Crowns or caps are placed on the teeth if too much of the tooth is lost to protect the tooth from further damage and to keep the filling portion and the remaining tooth structure in one piece.
During a crown procedure, we drill around the tooth to make way for the cap to sit right in, take impressions and send them to a private Dental Laboratory where it will be fabricated. Once we receive the crown back from the lab, we will schedule your appointment and insert the crown on your tooth.
A Bridge is a 3 or more crown units molded together in one piece. It is used to replace missing teeth were there is a tooth on each side of the missing tooth. Those teeth will serve as abutments “carriers” of the bridge supporting the missing middle tooth.
Just like with fillings, the way you bite and how it feels should be perfectly normal after having a crown or a bridge.
Unfortunately, not all teeth can be saved, sometimes the dentist will recommend pulling the tooth out.
During a tooth extraction, you might feel some pressure, or sometimes the tooth moving, but you WILL NOT feel pain. Simple extractions are usually quick, depending on the anatomy of the tooth, we might need to section the tooth into smaller pieces and get each piece out separately.
If we anticipate a complex extraction, we will refer you out to an oral surgeon to make sure you are getting the best outcome in your situation.
After an extraction, the socket “were the tooth was” will start to close and heal slowly. Usually, you will be able to eat normally without any discomfort within a week. During this time, it is extremely important that you follow the instructions and the recommendations of the dentist.
Dentures “flippers” are a complete set of teeth that are used to replace 2 or more teeth.
Dentures have excellent esthetics and are an excellent option for a lot of patients.
The denture process usually involves 4-5 appointments, during which we take multiple sets of impressions and measurements to make sure that they fit your mouth perfectly.
