When a tooth is broken or becomes severely infected or damaged, it is likely that you will need an extraction. Extracting significantly damaged teeth can help you return to optimal health, relieve you of pain and discomfort, and help prevent problems with surrounding teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Third molars, or wisdom teeth, are typically the last teeth to develop in a person’s mouth. While most people develop all 32 adult teeth, 80% of individuals don’t have jaws sizable enough to accommodate all four wisdom teeth. When this is the case, the teeth are unable to emerge from the gums and become impacted, often leading to infections, abscess, discomfort and pain. Dr. Meyer and his experienced team is able to perform wisdom teeth removal procedures with ease and efficiency, ensuring your comfort and safety throughout.
When teeth become decayed or damaged from plaque or bacteria, fillings help to restore your teeth back to their normal function and shape. First, your dentist will remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and will fill the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.
Root Canal Treatment
Also known as a pulpectomy, root canal treatments are used to save and repair teeth that have been infested and decayed, often to the point of abscess. Root canal procedures involve removing the nerve and pulp of a tooth. Your dentist will then clean and seal the inside of the infected tooth, removing the bacteria from the pulp of your tooth.
Veneers are porcelain laminates, custom made to be directly applied to a patient’s teeth. Veneers look and feel like normal teeth and are an excellent option for improving your smile while correcting crooked or misaligned teeth. Additionally, veneers are ideal for patients who have tooth gaps or teeth resistant to dental bleaching.
When teeth are severely damaged or in advanced stages of tooth decay, dental crowns may be a viable option for you. Similar to fillings, bridges and implants, crowns restore the durability, aesthetics and function of your smile. Dental crowns can be made from a number of materials and covers the remaining tooth structure.
Tooth decay, injury and gum disease often results in tooth loss. If tooth loss occurs, dental bridges are a viable option to replace missing teeth. Bridges are devices that are attached to adjacent natural teeth that can either be permanently attached or removable. Bridges effectively prevent your natural teeth from shifting, which often results in pain and discomfort.
As we age, environmental factors and habits such as smoking and drinking coffee and tea can lead to tooth staining and discoloration. At Meyer Family Dental, our teeth whitening services are safe, cost-effective and produce immediate results. Contact our office today to learn more about how you can dramatically brighten your smile with teeth whitening treatment.
Dental sealants are an effective treatment that helps to prevent tooth decay. For this treatment, your dentist will apply a plastic film to the chewing surface of your teeth, effectively creating a protective barrier on your tooth enamel. This barrier prevents food particles, plaque, bacteria and acids from penetrating the protective barrier on the surface of your teeth. Sealants are durable and can last several years before requiring reapplication.
Major tooth loss is not only a cosmetic issue — it can have a dramatic effect on a person’s quality of life, affecting one’s ability to eat, speak, and feel comfortable. Dentures and partial dentures are ideal for patients who want a natural looking and healthy smile after tooth loss. Complete dentures are available for those who are missing all of their teeth. Partial dentures are ideal for those who retain some of their natural teeth. Dentures are custom-made to fit comfortably and can help restore the ability to speak and eat and can prevent facial sagging.
Panoramic radiography is used in preventive dental medicine to diagnose dental conditions and allows your dentist to see the entirety of your mouth within a single image.
N20 – Nitrous Oxide
Some children and adults feel may feel anxious during dental treatments and may need more support than just the caring and professional touch of our team members. Nitrous oxide/oxygen is an effective and safe way to help calm a nervous individual while undergoing dental work. Nitrous oxide is a blend of oxygen and nitrous oxide that when inhaled, is absorbed by the body and has a calming effect.
