DENTURES - REMOVABLE/PARTIAL

Complete dentures can be either "conventional" or "immediate." Made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal, conventional dentures are ready for placement in the mouth about 8-12 weeks after the teeth have been removed.

Unlike conventional dentures, immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. As a result, the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period following tooth removal. therefore a disadvantage of immediate dentures compared with conventional dentures is that they require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process and generally should only be considered temporary until the conventional dentures can be made.

ORAL SEDATION/NITROUS OXIDE

Nitrous Oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. 

Within a few short minutes you should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide.

You may feel light-headed or a tingling sensation in your arms and legs.

Some people say their arms and legs feel heavy. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. 

The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed.




CROWNS/BRIDGES

A dental crown is a tooth shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth, to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap, these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth, and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made up from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials, dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

SLEEP APNEA DEVICES

Oral appliances look like the mouth guards worn by football players. The oral appliances for treating sleep apnea and snoring are specially designed for that purpose. 

The appliance is worn in the mouth during sleep. Most appliances work by positioning the lower jaw slightly forward of its usual rest position. This small change is, in many people, enough to keep the airway open during sleep.

Porcelain Veneers

A veneer is a thin facing or covering that bonds to the natural tooth structure. Veneers may be used to restore a single tooth that may have been fractured or discolored or multiple teeth to create a beautiful smile in a short amount of time without removing a lot of tooth structure.

Oral Surgery

In most cases the extraction of teeth is performed under local anesthesia and laughing gas (nitrous oxide/oxygen analgesia). 

These options as well as the surgical risks (i.e., sensory nerve damage, sinus complications), will be discussed with you before the procedure is performed.

Teeth Whitening

Whether you prefer to whiten overnight in the comfort of a custom tray or get immediate results with an in-office treatment, we can brighten your smile. 

When it comes to teeth whitening, it is important for you to understand the causes behind staining or discoloration so you and your dentist can choose the whitening treatment that will provide the best results.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having a removable, partial, or complete denture. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.

Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear. A dental implant designed to replace a single tooth is composed of three parts: the titanium implant that fuses with the jawbone; the abutment, which fits over the portion of the implant that protrudes from the gum line; and the crown which is fitted onto the abutment for a natural appearance.

PALATE EXPANSION

Palatal expansion is a combination of tooth movement and jaw expansion. 

It works by widening the two halves of the upper jaw, called the palate. 

The two halves are joined together by a "suture" in the middle of the roof of the mouth.

 An expander can be fixed (bonded to the mouth) or removable.
