If you are dealing with damaged or missing teeth, you shouldn’t just trust your oral health to anyone. These complex issues require the skilled hand of a prosthodontist. At Pacific Modern Dentistry, we are highly experienced in performing a broad range of prosthodontic treatments, which allows you to regain the normal functions of your mouth as well as the health of your mouth and the quality of your smile.
A prosthodontist is just one of the several different types of dental specialists. As prosthodontists, we specialize specifically in the repair of worn, broken down, damaged, and decayed teeth. This includes providing treatments such as veneers, fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns. We also specialize in the replacement of missing and extracted teeth, providing solutions such as bridges, dentures, and dental implants. In addition to improving your oral health, we are also able to help restore the appearance of your smile, giving you a gorgeous smile that you can be proud to show off.
While a general dentist may be able to perform some of the treatments that we can, we receive extensive training and education in the latest tooth repair and replacement procedures. We are highly trained in the use of the newest dental technologies. We have plenty of hands-on experience performing reconstructive procedures, esthetic procedures, and providing complex care. We have an in-depth understanding of what goes into making a functional, beautiful smile, and can help you achieve a smile that both works and looks incredible.
Your smile, and its needs are unique to you. The first step is determining the exact needs of your mouth. This requires a thorough oral examination. Once we have determined all of the issues affecting your mouth, we can then customize a unique treatment plan that helps you to improve your oral health as well as maintain it.
Gold restorations have been around for quite a while. They are incredibly durable, long-lasting, and highly protective. They also do not cause allergic reactions and are non-toxic. They might not look natural, but for a tooth at the back of the mouth, a gold restoration can be the perfect solution for protecting a compromised tooth.
If you have a damaged or decayed tooth at the front of your mouth, esthetics does become a concern. This is where ceramic restorations come into play. Ceramic restorations look exactly like the rest of your teeth, providing a perfectly natural restoration to your smile while also restoring the health of the affected tooth as well. Ceramic restorations are not as strong as gold, but they can typically withstand the lighter forces exerted at the front of the mouth.
The fake looking dentures you are most likely familiar with are a thing of the past thanks to customized esthetic dentures. With customized esthetic dentures, we are able to create a custom set of dentures that perfectly complement the structure of your face and mouth. This gives you a much more natural smile while also improving the shape of your face and the functions of your mouth.
With implant fixed dentures, we can help make dentures a much more long-lasting solution. This is done by fixing a denture into place using dental implants. Rather than worrying about your teeth falling out of your mouth at the most inopportune times, you can focus on more important things, like spending time with your friends or family or giving an important presentation at work. Your implant fixed denture is not going anywhere.
The ways in which we are able to replace missing teeth today are quite incredible. With dental implants, we are able to replace both the crown and the root of the missing tooth. We provide a wide array of implant solutions, enabling us to replace individual teeth, sections of teeth, and even full arches. Implants can also be used as a solution to fix dentures into place.
If you have several issues affecting your mouth, a full mouth reconstruction may be recommended. This is a treatment that focuses on correcting a variety of issues, including damaged teeth, decayed teeth, missing teeth, poor alignment, TMJ issues, and more. Each full mouth reconstruction is customized to meet the individual needs of our patients, ensuring that you get a healthy, beautiful smile that suits you and you alone.
If you have damaged, decayed, or missing teeth, we are here to help restore the condition of your mouth, improving both your oral health and the beauty of your smile. For more information, and to schedule your appointment, call Pacific Modern Dentistry at (206) 607-9822 today.
