We offer veneers and crowns to those who wish to replace or repair broken or weak teeth. Veneers may be used to replace teeth that are chipped, crooked, discolored, or broken, while crowns may be created to restore a broken tooth, protect a weak tooth, or to cover a dental implant.
If you are missing a tooth or several teeth, and do not want dentures, you may have another option. People who have adequate bone mass may have implants to replace their missing teeth. Implants are extremely durable, and can last a lifetime. They require the same maintenance as normal teeth, such as flossing, brushing, and regular dental checkups. They use a small, sturdy, titanium post that acts like a tooth's natural root structure, and can be placed in a patient's upper or lower jaw.
A tooth that is sensitive to heat or cold for more than a couple of seconds, hurts when it is touched, has swelling near or around it, or is discolored, may require a root canal. Root canals are performed to resolve pulp infections and trauma. If a patient does not have a root canal to repair their pulp, the infected tooth may have to be extracted, which can overstress other teeth and cause the neighboring teeth to drift.
We always perform a complete cleaning during a checkup. We use a special instrument to scrape below patients' gum lines and remove plaque and tartar. Once the cleaning is finished, our staff will polish and floss patients' teeth. Depending on the patient, we may recommend x-rays, which may diagnose problems that may go otherwise unnoticed, such as impacted teeth, abscesses, or cysts. Our team uses an x-ray machine that does not emit radiation, and will provide us with a complete view of your upper and lower jaw.
Comfort Dental has qualified dentists standing by 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help patients if they are suffering from painful tooth issues and require a dentist afterhours. If a tooth begins to ache, becomes chipped or broken, is knocked out, or is extruded, our dentist can help. We also replace lost fillings, lost crowns, repair broken braces wires, remove objects, tend abscesses, and help with soft tissue injuries.
We use inlays and onlays when a cavity or lost tooth structure is too large to be restored by a simple filling. Inlays and onlays replace most back teeth fillings, and are often preferred over conventional fillings. A person may have an inlay or onlay created using gold, porcelain, or composite resins. Inlays are used to treat teeth that have decay or damage on their surfaces. Onlays are used to treat decay that extends to a tooth's cusps.
Gum disease is an inflammation of the gums that may damage the bone that supports the teeth in a person's mouth if it goes untreated. It is often caused by plaque buildup that infects the gum, teeth, and eventually gum tissue and bone. Early stages of gum disease may be reversed by brushing and flossing multiple times a day. A professional cleaning may remove excessive plaque buildup, and remove tartar both above and below the gum line. If a gum infection is severe, a root planning procedure may be necessary.
If you have severe crowding, a crossbite, spacing, or an overbite, you may require braces. However, not everyone wishes to have brackets and wires on their teeth. Invisalign offers people who need braces an invisible, comfortable, and overall convenient way to straighten their teeth. By wearing the clear, custom-made aligners, a person will achieve the confident smile they always wanted.
Laser Teeth Whitening
Teeth may discolor and stain over time, which may cause a person to feel embarrassed about their smile. Laser teeth whitening is a fast, long-lasting, safe, and effective way to reverse discoloration of enamel. The natural tooth structures remain the same and anesthetic is not required for laser teeth whitening. Depending on the patient, our office may recommend in-office whitening, or at home whitening.
Wisdom teeth usually emerge when a person is between the ages of 16 and 20, but in some cases, wisdom teeth may not surface due to impaction. Horizontal, angular, and vertical impaction may cause swelling and tenderness in the back of the mouth, and in extreme cases, may lead to painful crowding and disease. If your wisdom teeth are impacted, our oral surgeon can remove them with either general or local anesthesia.
