If you have chipped, cracked, or decayed teeth, you probably have a smile you’re not eager to show the world. They can make you feel self-conscious and always have a second thought when it comes to attending social situations. Worst of all, they can actually affect the functionality of your teeth, making it difficult to do every day things like eat and speak. Fortunately, Dr. Shelly Strohman and our team can perform a variety of restorative procedures that can fix your teeth and bring back your confident smile. Read on to learn more about how we can help, and contact our office today to get the treatment you need.
Dentures have been used for generations because they are one of the most effective and reliable ways to replace missing teeth. Modern day dentures still consist of a gum-colored acrylic base attached to prosthetic teeth, but they are dramatically more comfortable and natural-looking than ones from the past.
We can use a partial denture to replace multiple missing teeth. We’ll make sure you get the exact look and feel you want so you can talk, eat, and smile with ease.
If you have a tooth that has been damaged due to decay or trauma, we can use a crown to fix it. Sometimes called a “cap,” it is a tooth-shaped restoration that simply slips on top of the damaged one to restore its look and function at the same time.
If you have a few missing teeth in a row, a crown can then be attached to a series of prosthetic teeth that literally “bridges” the gap in your smile. Click the link to learn more about how we use these treatments to help hundreds of smiles every year.
One of the most common restorative treatments performed by our team is a tooth-colored filling to repair a tooth that has been affected by decay. Made of a composite resin material, these fillings match the existing color of your teeth and form a strong and practically seamless bond to the remaining tooth structure. This makes them much more aesthetically pleasing than traditional amalgam fillings, and they even require less of your tooth to be removed while being placed. All in all, you get the best of both strength and beauty with just one treatment.
A root canal is a procedure used to treat a tooth that has suffered damage to its inner most layer where the sensitive nerve resides. This can happen due to physical injury or tooth decay that has been left alone for a long time. Despite its dubious reputation, a root canal is actually a relatively painless procedure that is excellent at saving teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. It’s one of the best ways we alleviate the most severe dental pain.
Our goal at Strohman Dental is always to protect and preserve your natural teeth, but sometimes, a tooth can become so damaged that the best thing to do is simply remove it. It may also be necessary to remove baby teeth to make way for incoming permanent teeth. We understand this can make many patients nervous, so you can trust that we’ll only extract teeth as a last resort. Thanks to modern dental techniques, technology, and sedation practices, we can make your extraction virtually painless.
