Dental Bridges: Dental bridges can be removable or secured with dental implants to replace multiple missing teeth. Secured dental bridges provide more stability and last longer than removable dental bridges. If there are any natural teeth adjacent to tooth gaps, they can be shaped to ensure that they can properly support the bridge. Dental bridges usually consist of a metal framework that is covered by porcelain to improve the aesthetics of the patient’s smile.
Dental Crowns: If you have discolored or worn teeth, you can benefit from dental crowns. Also known as dental caps, dental crowns cover teeth and dental restorations. Dental crowns may be color-matched to teeth, depending on whether you chose a restoration with metal, porcelain, ceramic, or another type of material.
Dental Implants: If you have one or more missing teeth and want a fuller and more functional smile, try dental implants. Dr. Randall Stewart and Dr. Melissa Stewart offer dental implants along with other restorative treatments at the Stewart Dental Group in Charlotte, NC. Consisting of a titanium post, abutment, and dental crown, dental implants are a secure and durable treatment option for patients. Dental implants can also be used to secure dental bridges or dentures, which replace multiple consecutive teeth or whole arches of teeth.
Dentures & Partials: Complete or full dentures are used to replace most or all of a patient’s teeth. An advantage of this option is that patients have teeth during the healing period. Conventional dentures can then be made once the tissues have healed after six to eight weeks. A removable denture or over-denture is an option that fits over several remaining natural teeth or dental implants. Partial dentures fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and is a great option for patients who have several missing teeth but have some natural teeth remaining.
Periodontal Therapy: Do you have red, swollen, or bleeding gums? You may be developing periodontitis or gum disease. This condition is caused by the infection of gum tissue. Plaque that infects the gums can inflame them and cause bleeding. As gum infection progresses, pockets can form between teeth, loosening them or causing them to fall out. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults and should be treated as soon as possible.
TMJ Treatment: Do you suffer from chronic jaw pain? Do you find yourself clenching or grinding your teeth? You may have a TMJ disorder. The temporomandibular joint connects the jawbone to the skull, and pain can arise in the jaw joint and the muscles that control the jaw. Other often painful symptoms can damage teeth and make it difficult to use the jaw and teeth properly. Oral appliances can be used to treat TMJ disorders.
